Hi Janice,

Most likely a fuse in the transformer blew.
A technician needs to see the machine to fix it.

hope that helps!

SOURCE: Thread tension?

I own this little gem of a machine. It definitely sews a perfect stitch. I'm assuming you own the green 3/4 size machine as denoted by your product number. The half size blue one pictured is incorrect.

Anyway, this machine sews a perfect stitch, due to the oscillating bobbin. Most sewing machines with rotary (drop in) bobbins don't have an easily accessible bobbin tension screw, which means your fabric is usually slightly puckered. Fiddling with only the upper tension helps very little. This frustrates me to no end for sewing long curtains, clothing side seams, etc. Wrong tension causes them to hang with puckers, making them look awful. With the Hello Kitty 3/4 size Janome, there is a screw on the bobbin case which allows you to adjust for every thread diameter perfectly. Always a perfect stitch, if you take the time to adjust this screw.

To adjust the bobbin for a perfect tension, load the bobbin into the bobbin case and thread it through the guide. Holding only the thread between two or three fingers, let the bobbin case dangle below. This will be slightly difficult, because the bobbin will want to fall out of the case. Don't worry, just don't move it around too much and it will stay in long enough for this test. If the metal bobbin case slowly drops lower, unwinding thread as it goes, the thread is too loose. Tighten the screw on the side of the bobbin case a little (about a quarter turn.)

If the bobbin case seems to be dangling firmly, give the thread a gentle tug, lifting up fairly quickly. If it doesn't release a couple of inches of thread, it's too tight, loosen the screw. You know the tension is perfect when a quick, light tug of the thread releases a couple of inches of thread.

SOURCE: janoneDc3018 thread bunches up .

Are you using heavy thread for the top stitching? If so you will need to tighten the top tension. You would think if it is thicker thread that you would need to loosen the top tension but you have to tighten it to help pull it up through the fabric. If you use heavy thread in the bobbin you would have to loosen the bobbin tension. Check and make sure the thread is seated in the top tension and make sure there is no lint in the tension disc. It is definitely a tension issue. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: bobbin thread keeps breaking

Could well be that the bobbin tension is too tight, you should only just be able to pull the bottom thread through with slight resistence, if it is too tight slacken the screw on the bobbin case anti clockwise about a quarter of a turn at a time and test until you get it right,

I have juki 1541industrial machine . It started sewing upside down . Instead of nice stiching on top show side it on bottom. Any ideas


This is caused by the tension between the bobbin and needle threads being out of balance. If the knots between the stitches are on the bottom side, then you need to tighten your needle thread tension a little at a time until the knot is in middle of fabric. The reverse of this is if the knots are on the top, then either your bobbin tension is too loose or your needle thread tension is too tight. If this occurs, then loosen your needle thread a little at a time to see if knot goes down in middle of fabric. If it does not, then you need to increase the tension on your bobbin thread. This done by taking bobbin case out and tighten the small screw located in the middle of the spring on the side of the case. You only need a slight, steady pull on the bobbin thread - the more you put on the bobbin, the more you are going to have to put on the needle thread.

I own a Bernina 1260 and am having a problem adjusting my bottom thread (it has loops in it). I have tried adjusting the tension but I still cannot get a perfect bottom stitch.


Hello

You would pull out several long lengths of matching thread from my spool of thread and knot the threads together at one end (to hold them together). Grab the knotted end of threads with your left hand and place the threads(held taunt together) under the presserfoot of your sewing machine.

Select a narrow zigzag stitch that will zigzag over the threads, and holding both the knotted end(Left hand) and the other ends with right hand( holding tauntly), zigzag down the length of the threads.

You can use this for matching button loops, cording for belt loops, or whenever you need matching cord. The thickness of the cord will depend on how many strands of thread you want to use. You insert the loop of cord into the seam, so that when the garment is turned RIGHT SIDE OUT, the loop will be sticking out of the seam and you can put the button through the loop.

THANK YOU FOR VISITING FIXYA

Sewing 1/4" leather. Bottom thread


You did it backwards!!! Reset the bottom tension to the default position, with heavy threads its touchy to get back to normal. Turn the upper tension about 1 turn clockwise (tighter) and try. No luck, try a turn then test, then a turn, test.....The size of the thread can cause issues as well. We mostly use #69 nylon threads, but the 1541 can use # 69 to 192 without to many problems. look in the book for how to reset the bobbin case tensions. The 1541 is a wonderful machine, much better quality than the chinese junk being sold nowadays.

Bunches of threads on the bottom


Try threading the machine with the presser foot up.

This opens the tension and allows the thread to seat into the tension control.

When the thread is not properly seated, there isn't any tension on the top thread the bobbin thread cannot make a proper stitch with a top thead that is loosey-goosey.

Upper thread knots up with bobbin thread when sewing a stich


Thread test
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test, then let me know, we can go to step 2. If not, try different spool of thread, same test until you get a smooth pull (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)
Step 2:
Pull on your threaded bobbin thread while it’s in the machine. Does it pull smooth and even? If so, go to step 3. If not, try a new bobbin (bobbins get bent or distorted if wound too tight).
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.
Thread knotting on the bobbin can be a lot of things but here's some guidance:
Tension:
If the thread is loose on the bottom of the fabric, it's actually the top thread is too loose. Think of 2 little elves playing tug of war in your machine, one on toip and one underneath. If you have loops on bottom, the top needs to pull harder (tighten top tension)
Jamming bobbin case:
If it is damaged from turning out of place once, it could have rough spots on it that makes the thread hang on it, and keeps making it turn over and over. Use a finger nail board (fine sanding) and smoothall rough spots. Then reset the bobbin case taking care to put the notch in the bobbin case in alignment with the proper spot in the machine (basically 5 o’clock) when looking at the round area where the bobbin case goes.

Thread knotting and bunching on the backside of design


Knotting or looping on the bottom is most likely from not enough upper thread tension or way to much bobbin thread tension.
When you thread your machine, make sure the thread goes inside the second thread guide where the thread comes down in front of your machine. The presser foot must be in the up position for that guide to open and allow the thread to correctly "seat" in that guide.
Try this...Before you thread the needle, pull on the thread. With the foot in the up position there should not be any tension at all...lower the foot and you should have to tug slightly on the thread to get it to move. If lowering the foot does not increase your upper thread tension then you are not in the thread guide correctly or you have a mechanical problem with the upper thread tensioner.
One last thing to check. You can get a wax build up or lint packed in the thread tension guide. This is a common problem. Run a Q-tip through the guide and clean it out. If that guide gets built up with wax or lint it will not clamp down on the upper thread and you will not have the correct tension.
With the bobbin case threaded, pull out the thread. It should not be super tight or loose. It should be like pulling Scotch tape off a roll as far as tension goes.
Get your upper and lower thread tensions set up correctly and your problem will be solved.
Good luck, bushvideo
