The bobbin tension could be too tight or the bobbin may not be installed and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.

I have a Janome magnolia 7318. when I lower feed dogs to quilt it will not sew circles or feathers well. It pulls bobbin thread up on top in loops.


I've found that when FMQing, I usually need to increase the bobbin tension to keep the bobbin thread down (for this reason, I have a separate bobbin case that has the tension adjusted that is used only for FMQ). You may even need to decrease the top tension if the top thread is "pulling" the bobbin thread up.

Janome sewing machine can't get it to sew the thread isn't pulling the bobbin thread through


Install a brand new needle. If it still does not pull up the bobbin thread, then the machine is probably out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

How do I change the bobbin in a Janome sewing machine?


There is a small plastic plate where the needle goes down through the foot, remove this cover and you will see the bobbin. Remove the bobbin and refill or selecting another bobbin turn it so that when you pull the thread the bobbin turns anti-clock-wise, slip the bobbin into the black plastic casing, pulling the thread towards the small red arrow at the bottom of the casing, slip the thread between break in the silver metal sleeve pulling it to your left between the 2 pieces of metal this is where the tension on the thread is. You have now changed your bobbin. With the plastic plate still off, hold the top thread with your left hand and with your right slowly turn the wheel, this will send the needle (holding your top thread) down into the bobbin casing and will pick up the bottom thread, pull on the top thread and bring the bottom thread up through the hole in the plate. Replace the plastic plate and recommence sewing. Good luck

Upper thread not engaging bobbin thread...


Hiya Kandie. Usually when you can't pull the bobbin through, the wrong size needle is in, try a different size needle. Hope I was some help for you.

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 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.
