SOURCE: Janome 9000 top tread breaking changed needle, checked feed through several times

Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

Hopefully, it was not stripped. If so, replacement is most likely the resolution.

SOURCE: the top tread breaks after about 1inch when trying to do chain stich on my janome cover stich machine

Could be the result of several things. There could be some gunk or threads stuck in the tension disk. Be sure to remove the thread and rethread from the beginning in the order specified. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading!!!! If you haven't tried a brand new needle, do so, and make sure it is pushed all the way up and installed with the flat side facing the correct direction. Some machines recommend #90 as the largest needle to use. Also, perhaps the needle eye is too small to accommodate the thread. Watch where the thread is breaking to give you an idea of where the problem may originate. Try a different brand of thread. Sometimes black thread causes issues because the heavy dye affects the thread. Set the tensions at the midway point and then loosen the tension on that one needle. There could also be a burr or rough spot somewhere along the threadpath that is catching the thread. Last idea--could be a timing issue.

Unfortunately, the only model 802 I can locate is a Janome sewing machine.

Search the internet for:

Needle clamp

are you turning it clockwise when viewed from behind the head of the screw?

Remove it completely and practice, put it back in the right place and repeat.

I have a Janome 802 swing machibe.I want to uninstall it for detail check and better service and then install it. I'm looking for a prorper service manual

Loosen the top cover the add a couple drops oil at each joint. Do the same for the rest of the machine. Remove the bobbin case and permit the sewing machine to run freely. It may take 10-15 minutes before it begins to loosen.

sounds like this machine may need a good cleaning as areas that are not visible can become clogged with lent, threads, etc. and cause it not to work and sound loud. I recently bought a non-working Janome for parts and wound up checking it out and found the gears were completely encrusted with lint, threads and who knows what else. I spent 2 hours cleaning the gear and she worked like a new machine after I did the cleaning and then reset the machine. It was the Janome Memory Craft 8000..I could not believe that little jewel had, apparently, never been properly cleaned.

Not sure if i have put bobbin back in correctly, I have an old janome sewing machine. Also I havent used a machine for about 10 years, trying to remember.

with the brother its Pretty easy. you drop the bobbin in with the thread heading counter clockwise take your thread around the feed guide in a Clock wise manner then turn your knob it should pick the tread up fairly easily
