It could be any one of several things. the cord may be damaged (most likely at the foot control end). the foot control may be damaged. the motor may be damaged (either brushes worn out or winding burnt out).

as high voltage is involved i recommend you have a tech check it for you.

goodluck,
scott.

I have an opportunity to buy a Janome 8002D serger. I don't know how old it is? What is it worth? Serial No.: 020050716 Lillian


Hello, Lillian -

I checked the instruction manual available for the Janome 8002D serger through the Janome website:
https://www.janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/sergers/inst-book-8002deng.pdf
and did not find a date of printing on the manual (which would give an idea for the year/s the model was manufactured.)

I also found the following information on one of the Janome web pages:
(Quote)
For consumers looking to date an antique New Home sewing machine that was made in Orange, MA or Rockford IL, please click here. We are sorry, but no other New Home or Janome sewing machines can be dated.
The only information we can provide is a date of manufacture if you have the following information:
  • model number or style number
  • serial number
  • place of manufacture.

It looks like Janome still sells the model 8002D serger:
https://www.janome.com/en/machines/sergers/8002d/

As for the value of the machine you are considering purchasing, you can get an idea of the price/s sellers are asking by looking at online sales of that model sewing machine. Here are some links:

https://www.amazon.com/Janome-8002D-Serger/dp/B008L5FN4E

https://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/Janome-8002D.php

Best wishes.

Newhome 743D overlocker. What kind of needles does it use?


From what I can discern, Newhome was a Janome product. Perhaps these needles will work:

Janome Overlock Serger Needles 5 Needles per Pack

Is this similar to your machine? If so, then the needles above may work:
Janome Mylock744D Overlocker Serger

I found some Janome 743D manuals online but they all appear to be in the UK, or elsewhere.

Here is a step by step guide on replacing and threading the upper loop on your serger. If this does not work, the Janome website suggest using the DVD that came with your model for a step by step video.

I am looking for a manual for my janome 9102D serger. It did not come with one.


I could not find a manual to download, but at the Janome site you may find another serger similar to yours and download (free).

Look thought the retired models as well.

When you find one, click on specifications and a PDF download icon will come up on the screen.

If that is not satisfactory, contact Janome's customer service at the same site.

i suggest you get a tech to re-time your machine. timing is complex on an overlocker and if not done correctly you will probably break a looper.
