Question about Janome Sewing Machines
Un-thread the machine.
Remove the needle plate and carefully inspect the bobbin case for any nicks in it. It is made of carbon fiber and can be lightly polished with 1500 grit sandpaper.
Place the bobbin case back in making sure that it rests in the proper position. (In the 5 o'clock position is a bumper to prevent the bobbin case from twisting too far.)
Thread the machine making sure that the take-up lever is threaded.
Set the upper tension to AUTO.
Use Mettler or Gutermann thread for good results.

You don't have much info here to go on. I take it that it embroiders fine otherwise, ie on the built in designs. Is it a Janome card? Does it do it on a particular card / design? Have you changed the bobbin thread that you use? Check the top tension - even though it is 'automatic', it does require adjustment at times. Have you changed / using stabiliser that you use? Is the bobbin correctly threaded?
Check these things
