SOURCE: MC 11000 janome stops reading presser foot "p"

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: presser foot stopped working I turned

Did you connect your machine then press the foot control before you lowered you presser foot? I have a CS6000 and that is what E1 means on my machine. You did not put your model number in so I don't know. You can look in your manual or go online to www.brother-usa.com and look it up for your machine. Try unplugging and plugging it in again, but put your presser foot down then step on your foot pedal.

SOURCE: Kenmore sewing machine Model 1602:

Sound like you need to take it out of bobbin winder mode. Suggest looking for a way to engage the clutch. Turn the center knob on hand wheel and or move the bobbin winding post back to postion.

The center hand wheel should move about 1/3 turn towards you to look it back into place.

Won't catch the bobbin thread everytime. skips. I have retreaded everything several times, reajusted tension, and even the presser foot tension.


Install a brand new needle.

Check the upper tension: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. This ensures the thread is seated properly in the tension disk. Make sure the bobbin case is threaded properly.

If still missing the bobbin thread, it probably has a needle/hook timing issue.

Needle hits bobbin case


The bobbin case has to be positioned properly in the race. When the stitch plate is removed the bobbin case can be inserted in the wrong orientation to the stop finger. So if I can the presser foot location 12 o'clock, the tension screw for the bobbin case should be at 6:15 and the stop, which I think looks like a little nose, should be at 5:45. This little nose like projection should nuzzle up against the stop. If the needle hits the bobbin case when the bobbin case is inserted correctly, go see a dealer, your machine is broken.

Walking Foot Trouble


sounds to me like you are getting what I call "flagging" of the material... where a tiny bur or something catches the material and pulls it up. If possible increase the presser a bit on the presser foot. You might also have the wrong foot for the machine or simply a defective one.

Also when it does this... do you notice any bobbin thread on top of the seam?

We have a Touch & Sew 640 that we ARE trying to get running, and we need a manual, and specifically how do w thread the bobbin.


To wind the bobbin, select straight stitch, thread the machine up as normal making sure the presser foot is up, open the slide plate, push the little button over to raise the winder, take the thread and wind it round the presser foot screw a few times, press on the foot control slowly and the bobbin will wind, when you have enough, stop, close the slide plate to drop the winder down, pull the threads to the back and start sewing. for manuals try www.tandtrepair.com

Bobbin jaming up


Clean the bobbin area.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up - always,

Make sure the bobbin thread is feeding clockwise and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Lower the threaded needle down and back up while holding onto the thread end. This will pull the bobbin thread up. Hold onto both threads and pull under the presser foot and to the back of the sewing machine.

Hold on to the thread ends and lower the needle into the fabric, then press the foot pedal.

You may want to use a leader - a folded scrap of fabric that you sew to the edge of and then **** against the fabric you want to sew. Sew off the leader and onto the fabric and this will keep the thread from going down into the machine. You can have a few stitches between the two to make it easy to cut the leader away.

When you stop to adjust the fabric make sure the needle is down to anchor the fabric (turning corners, sewing a curve. etc).

The slightest movement of the fabric when the needle is up will sometimes cause a thread jam.

I reloaded my bobin and began to sew. The thread


Sometimes it may look like the bobbin is the problem, when it is actually the machine was threaded with the presser foot down.

Refer to the manual for your machine and recheck the direction the thread is be feeding from the bobbin and that it is going through the proper guide(s).

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

When threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter. When you sew, the stitches are loose and loopy.

Top thread will not move when presser foot is down


This machine has a tension roller system that meters out thread when the machine is running. When stopped it is locked up so you won't be able to pull thread thru with the foot down.
Hope this helps.
