My Janome 10001 embroiders fine except when I do lettering, it seems as if the tension chnages and the bobbin thread is pulled to the top making the lettering distorted. Do I have to always adjust the machine for lettering when the rest sews out fine?

Mine did this, after service it was fine. But it certainly depends on the fabric you are using, and the stabilizer.

Bobbin thread shows on embroidery pattern


The bobbin thread is being pulled too hard by the top thread. The idea is to get an even pull similar to a tug of war. When it is even the thread will form a knot in the middle of the fabric.
To fix this so the top thread isn't pulling too hard lower the tension of the top thread. This should fix it.

I can't seem to get the tension right when sewing. The top tension looks okay however the bottom is loose


If the bottom looks loose then this is usually a problem with top threading so rethread the machine and check that the thread has gone through the tension discs. Lower the pressure foot and pull gently on the thread just before the needle and feel if it is under tension. Is the top tension device set to the middle number setting? usually 5? Unthread the top path, turn the dial to 0 and run the edge of a piece of fabric through the tension discs to clean them. Thread shreds particles of dye and fine thread pieces as you sew so this area needs cleaning regularly.

Also a good idea to check the bobbin thread is under tension correctly and that the bobbin is in the correct way. On my Janome the bobbin thread winds off so that the bobbin turns in an anti-clockwise direction. Mine has a clear bobbin cover with a threading image to remind me of this but check yours and the manual if you have it. Janome bobbins are same top and bottom, usually clear plastic so it is easy to get it wrong sometimes.

Check out www.sewing.about.com for some good general advice on sewing machine threading and maintenance, it pays to always clean and maintain your machine regularly, use good quality threads and change your needle for EVERY project, don't try and reuse them.

Of course, if you know all this and have tried it already, then perhaps the top tension device has actually failed, if turning the dial up higher makes no differerence at all, then could be mechanic time.

The top thread on my Janome 300E is getting caught in the bobbin. It starts bunching up on the back of the fabric that I am trying to embroider and it gets stuck. When I pull it off all the top thread is...


If your thread is getting caught underneath it's usually the UPPER thread is threaded wrong or not correctly through the tension discs. This can also happen if you're using Sticky Back stabilizer. Make sure you have a new needle in case there's a burr on the old one which can also cause this problem.

The bottom side of the item I am embroidering is showing all of the top thread color. I have adjusted the tension dial and bobbin tension. Any other suggestions?


Normally you will see the about 1/3 bobbin thread and about 2/3 of the top thread on the bottom side of the fabric. If you dont see any of the bobbin thread on the back side turn the upper tension (needle tension) to a larger number.
Good Luck,
Doug

Sir I am owning a Janome Memory Craft 10001 but recently it's not working properly in ordinary sewing mode the top side of the fabric the stitch looks okay but underneath it is loose and while embroidering...


Usually If the underneath is loose it is the top tension that is the problem. If it is the top stitching that is loose it is the bottom tension. Hope this helps.

The bobbin thread is sewing loose - after sewing you can just pull the thread out. Stitches are uneven in length some short some long.


Tighten the bobbin thread a little and loosen the top thread tension a little. A correctly tensioned embroidery machine will show a little less than 1/3 of the top thread color and 2/3 of the bobbin thread on the bottom side of the embroidered piece. You may have to play with it some so use scrap material and dark top thread until you get your adjustment made.

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread makes a big loopy mess


This is sometimes caused by the upper thread not threaded correctly. You need to thread it first with the pressure foot in the up position. You need to "floss" the thread into the clear plastic guide as this is where the tension is. The tension should be set to E for embroidering. Also make sure you get the bobbin thread in the slot on the bobbin case. Also, lower your pressure foot before you begin embroidering. Hope this helps!

Are you checking the simple things such as making sure you have the presser foot up when you thread and the tensions set between 4 and 6, bobbin in the correct way round and tension enough to pull the thread through with some resistence.

Mc 5700 problem


Hi,

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
