I'm going to guess on this one; if your stitches are even (no bunching or pulling), you might have a build up of thread somewhere in the machine. Take out the bobbin and, if possible, the bobbin casing and check for any tangled or loose threads. Second guess, check the feeder on top of the machine, thread may be working its way into and catching on that feeder... be very careful when threading through the feeder because thread will often catch. If neither of these 'fixes' work, might be time to take the machine in for a cleaning and tuneup.

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

Struggling with the tension of the 1 st & second threads. Stitching looks fine on top but loose at the back.


Before altering tensions, as you sew pinch each thread in order to give a false tension and observe which way the thread/stitch alters.. better or worse. if better more tension is needed as you are pinching the thread, if worse back it off.

The tension of thread is too loose on the underside when sewing decorative stitches


on my janome you can tighten the tension via a small screw in the bobbin housing. I would be very light handed so as not to go too tight, and usually lessening the tension on top thread is all that is reqired

How do you set the tension on a janome 6260 sewing machine?


Refer to the manual.

You turn the tension knob - the higher the number the tighter the stitch.

First, thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control for the thread to properly enter.

Then, when you lower the presser foot, the tension control closes to the setting you have selected.

The bobbin thread is bunching on the under side of the fabric,. Decorative designs are close together, not like the pattern and when I use the more intricate decorative designs, they just sit in a quarter...


Make sure that you use the F foot when using decorative stitches.

The stitch balance my be off. Remove the accessory bin and you will see a large plastic screw with a + and a - and an arrow. Using a coin, turn the arrow to the center and test. Turn the arrow towards the + to stretch the pattern out.

If this doesn't work, it must me calibrated internally and requires an experience hand.
