Question about Janome Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Janome 8050 bobbin case is jumping out of place. The thread is wrapping around the bobbin case and getting stuck, bunching up, and shutting down my sewing progress. It ties the needle up.

How do I get the case to stay in place?

Check for the retainer action of the bobbin case to see in there is a part broken off that holds the bobbin in the case or carrier
from what you describe , with the thread bunching up etc, I suspect that the needle thread tension is too loose and causing the problems
if so then the bunching and problems can be from the bunched thread pushing the bobbin out of position
take it in for a service and if necessary , repair

I have a Brother SE-27OD and the safety be is stuck on the left side of the machine and will not return to its place over the bobbin. Is there a way to fix this myself. I'm a pretty good DIY person.


Your bobbin must allow the thread to flow completely on top and around the bobbin case. If it stops because of the hook bracket being too close you must loosen it. With the throat plate open Watch the top thread be pulled off of the needle. It should pull from the needle on top and around the bobbin case. If it snags you must adjust it. Another small bracket on the upper left has to be adjusted to keep the bobbin case from spinning. Because yours has been a "birds nest" is a good indicator the thread isn't flowing smoothly.

MY THREAD GETTING WRAPPED AROUND THE BOBBING WHEN TRYING TO SEW THE TOP THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING CASE AND DRAGGING CAUSING THE TOP THREAD TO BREAK ?


It sounds like the lower shuttle is out of place. You should be able to take out the bobbin case and unlatch the shuttle. It will probably be in 2 pieces. Clean out the dust behind it and replace the shuttle pieces. You may have to fiddle with it a little to get them back in place. Then you can test it by manually turning the wheel. Make sure the bobbin is placed into the bobbin case and that the bobbin turns in the direction that you pull the thread.

Good luck.

I have the Kenmore sewing machine #16231. When I was sewing the bobbin holder popped out and a bunch of thread bunched together and wrapped around the bobbin and caused bunching of thread on my fabric...


Bunching of thread is 99% a top tension problem. Make sure you thread the top thread correctly. Thread the machine with the presser lever up. Test the tension by lowering the presser lever before threading the eye of the needle, by pulling the thread with your left hand and adjusting the tension with your right hand while slowly pulling downwards. There should be no resistance when the tension dial is on zero, and you should be able to feel more resistance when you increase the tension. Ideal tension is between 3 and 5. When your top tension is correct, your machine should operate correctly. If you feel no resistance with the presser foot down and the tension dial on 5, check the tension disks for fluff or broken thread. When you lift the presser foot, the tension disks should open and you would be able to remove any cotton or fluff. Good Luck

When I stitch the spool thread gets bunched underneath the cloth and get stuck underneath, please help


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

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.

My janome 4618 bobbin case jumps around and the sewing bunches what can I do?.Not much of a sewing expert but machine has only been used a handful of times.


It is probably one of two issues, the most likely being that the upper thread is not correct. Remove your spool of thread from the machine (also lets put in a new needle at this time) and raise the presser foot to its up position and rethread the machine and try again. If it works it was a threading problem. If you still have the same issue then you may have a damaged bobbin case. If the case is damaged it is probably best to let your local service store do it for you.
Good Luck!

Janome MC11000 - my bobbin case becomes dislodged


My bobbin case was jumping all the time...had it in for repairs and would bring it home and even though the tech had attached a test sew piece with different colored bobbin and top thread I could not get it to sew without the bobbin jumping. I thought that he had lied about that being sewn on this machine...finally, I found that you should start with plenty of thread in your hand when threading machine...so that once you feel it click into the tension...DO NOT PULL the thread, it pops it out of the tensioner...just loosely thread and hold tension with your thumb and forefinger while using the needle threader.

Janome 1600P-DB Tension Works For So Long...


It sounds as though the thread is jumping out of the tension assembly. The next time this happens, do not raise the presser foot before you do the following.Cut the thread above the needle and pull on it.If it is working properly there will be tension on it.If it is not working properly, the thread will pull through very easily.If the thread is coming out of the tension , either it isn't threaded correctly or you may need to wrap the thread around the bobbin winder guide to keep it from coming out.If you wrap it around the bobbin winder guide reduce the tension to around 2 , 3 or even less.
Hope this helps.

Janome Sew Mini bobbin problem


Hi, Usually wrap-ups in the bobbin area are caused by the lack of tension on the top thread. The slack arm ( shinny lever that moves up and down while sewing) has to pull the loop around the bobbin case and it does so only if the tension on the top thread is sufficient to keep it from pulling more thread of the spool.
Try this: Thread the top of the machine all the way just short of the needle eye. When the presser foot is up the thread should pull through easily. Now drop the presser foot (this closes the tension discs) and pull the tread while adjusting the upper tension control.
If everything is working correctly you should feel the drag on the thread change if not something is keeping the discs from closing.
Most Janomes aren't too difficult to remove the nose cover, usually just one screw and you can get a look at the thread path. Look for thread wrapped around the mechanism.
Sorry, no easy answer but I hope this helps.

When you put in the bobbin case, be sure to press it in firmly until you hear it click into place. If you can't press very firmly, or are afraid of hurting your machine, simply lift the latch from the bobbin case, holding it open while you firmly insert the case into the machine. Then release the latch. You should be good to go. Hope this helps!
