I'm looking at a used Jan e RX18S and would like to hear from owners about your experience with that model.

Does the feeder plate lower? How many different stitches does it have? How old is this model? Any major problems with this machine

I'd recommend you google to find other owners and or reviews of the machine. Possibly Consumer reports.

Check that the stitch length is set high enough that the feed dogs will actually advance the fabric. Setting the stitch length too low will cause the machine to basically sew in place.

Also, check that the feed dogs have not been "dropped" to allow darning or free motion quilting. Dropping the feed dogs lowers them so they will not rise above the needleplate and will not grip nor move the fabric.

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it may need a good cleaning and oiling. If the old oil has solidified, it could be preventing the feed dogs from moving like they should.

I have a a Janome 6260. The thread eVentually splits in half, then breaks. This problem is worse when I use decorative stitching


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 Juki8700 it does not seem to be feeding the fabric thru on the feed dog


ck presser foot tension. even with sightest presser ft tension goods should feed. next ck that your feeder plate is not loose or broken. take off the plate and see if u can move the feeders with your finger. tighten screws makinf sure the needle is centered inthe feeder plate hole. if this is not the problen then youe=r feeder plate teeth are too low or worn out. look up how to raise the feeders. the should be 1/8" above plate.

Why wont my Juki DDL-8700 form a stitch?


machine is out of time and u probably have burrs on the hook since you broke the plate with a needle probably from pulling fabric and bending the needle. you instruction manual will tell u how to time machine and its really very simple. all u have to do is take off feeder plate, loosen the 3 screws that hold the hook then lower the needle with the wheel until the needle just starts to rise. bring the loose hook point to i/16 " fron the needle and tighten hook screws. machine must be tilted back to do this whole operation. it helps to have a short screwdriver to tighten the hook screws. remove burrs with lite emory paper stroking in the sale direction as the hook.

Uneven feed


machines can have single or double feeders. what type does yours have? feeding problems can usually be fixed by a good cleaning+ oiling of the feeder mechanism which regularly gets clogged with lint+threads/scrap threads. brush it out thoroughly with a stiff-bristled brush like an acid brush. apply 1 drop of oil to each feeder seen on the foot-plate. wipe excess oil off with a clean dry rag being sure not to get any debris from the rag caught in the feeder(s). other problem might be your bobbin tension. this is usually adjusted on the bobbin race with a very small screwdriver.

Hi ,



Make sure your tension is not to tight and that there is now fluff or cotton stuck in between your tension plates. I sometimes use a string of the stitch to pull in between the tension plates. I always set the needles tension first and then i balance the tension of the upper and lower looper.

Make sure the cotton are not looped around a guide. Black cotton and some cottons can build up their own tension. Try different cotton. I\'ve had many a headache with this problem.

Check that the needles are not blunt or bent. I always use schmetz needles. If your needle plate has any damage where the cotton can get hooked. Use a small file or sand paper to remove it. The stitch tongue must be very smooth and the stitch must slide of smoothly. Check that your lower looper point does not have a sharp hook on it. You can use a very fine water sand paper to remove it.

If your needles are touching the looper, i could indicate that your lower looper is out of position. *.*(Always check this with new needles)

Feeder dogs will not advance the material


Are your dog feeds lowered perhaps? Check by turning the flywheel towards you with the pressure foot up and no fabric, can you see the feed dogs coming up above the needle plate? If this is happening, then check stitch length setting, should be 2.5 or 3 for a normal stitch.

If the feed dogs are not coming up, then they are either lowered, this is usually engaged/diseanged with a dial, slide or knob on the base of the machine, behind the free arm or sometimes inside the bobbin area. Reengage, then turn the machine through a couple of stitches as they don't just pop up again.

Those round items are more than likely stitch cams. I had an older model similar to this and my machine would run zig-zag or straight stitch without any cam installed.

Being that your machine is older, I'm wondering how long it has been since it has been cleaned and thoroughly oiled, These old machines tend to be forgotten for long periods of time and the oil dries out causing the machine to seize. It is important to keep them oiled EVEN when not used. To avoid damaging your machine, give it some well-appreciated TLC. You'll be amazed at how well it will run!

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...
