SOURCE: janome 5700 handwheel stuck/inside pulley stuck

The error message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so....... 
Remove needleplate and bobbin case. 
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels. 
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits. 
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins. 
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too. 
Best of ......

My Memory Craft 7000 sometimes does the same thing, if it's very cold. Try warming it up by placing it near a heat source, a vent or a floor heater, for a few minutes. Then it works perfectly.
I've used these machines for over 20 years now, and they're my favorite!

If this doesn't solve your problem, you need to take it in for servicing.

They are work horses, but they do need their maintenance from time to time.

I hope this helps you.

The feed mechanism needs to be oiled. Take off the bottom cover and look for any place where two parts move against each other. Some binds can be very difficult to remove. Try spraying everything with a light weight oil (I like Tri-Flow) and let them soak over night. Then manually try to move the feed dogs with your hand. Hopefully it will break loose.
Good luck!

SOURCE: howto thread a twin needle on Janome 6019

Hi there. If you have an acessory kit with your machine, there should be a plain spindle with a smaller bottom on it. There should also be a small hole on the top or back of your machine where your thread goes.. And yes you can thread both strands of thread thru the same areas till the needle.

I have a Bernina 180 sewing machine that the needle is not coming down?


This might be a bit hard to explain without showing you a video or photos, but here goes.
The 180 and many other Berninas do what is called a basting stitch. When a machine is doing this stitch the needle stops going up and down for a very short time this producing a long basting stitch. There is a mechanism on the needle shaft that has a black short lever on it. When the basting selanoid pushes in on this lever the needle stays in the up position. Simply stated this lever mechanism can stick if it is not oiled and your needle will stay in the up position and not move when the machine is running. Sometimes just pulling the needle shaft down, then letting it go so it snaps back up into place will lock the basting ever back in place. Once you get the needle shaft to lock back in everything will work again.
I can guarantee you that this is your problem if the machine runs but the needle stays in the upper position. I pose helpful Bernina videos on YouTube under the name JoeKind1958. It would be so much easier to show you how to oil the basting assembly on your machine. Contact me through that site and I can make a video showing you what to do.

Bobbin case bound up with thread and popped out of position


Ensure needle/needle bar is fully up at its highest point, replace the bobbin case with its open end seated at the back, the rotary hook tip should be just underneath it, just check further that it resides nicely along the groove of the rotary hook, re install the needle plate cover and tighten the 2 holding screws so that the bobbin case can be nicely in place, manually and slowly hand wheel the needle down several time to ensure the bobbin case is not unseated/needle is not knocking the bobbin case. Hope this can help/otherwise there are adjustments that need your local technician to do it.

Needle Thread Catching In The Bobbin Case


Your upper threading sequence may be wrong somewhere. Or the foot pressure is too light. Are the feed dogs down? they may have been accidently lowered.

On a babylock elegante the bobbin thread shows,


Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

While sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks


Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!

Puckered seams :-(


Try using a walking foot. It could be it's not the bobbin but the way the two layers are feeding together. Or, change feet. Or, try a new needle. Rethread the top needle, too--sometimes this alone fixes the problem.
