SOURCE: Retaining clip?

You may have a clip that is not seating properly in the groove. Try to push the clip into the groove, work your way around the splines. You are just checking to see that it does not stick anywhere in the groove keeping it from compressing. If you replaced the clip yourself it may be spread too far open causing it to hang on the edge of the gear in the transaxle. If so remove the clip and compress it with a pair of pliers so that it is now smaller than the inside of the groove. If these are not helpful, ensure that none of the splines on the shaft or inside the trans are damaged. You may end up replacing the retaining ring it is flattened or distorted. Try applying a bit of bearing grease on the ring to persuade it. Sometimes you will have to use a rubber mallet on the outer end of the axle shaft to get the ring to go into the trans.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Pentex k1000 rewind knob unscrewed, shaft fell inside camera

first make a small hook on the end of a straightened paper clip. insert the hook and pull up rotating the hook as you pull up. being careful not to bend the spring near the hole. once the back door is opened check the rewind shaft, there should be a beveled edge on the collar of the shaft. rotate the shaft while pushing up. if no beveled edge on the shaft use the paper clip to push the spring out of the way while inserting the shaft. if it still will not return file a bevel on the collar of the shaft. I am assuming there is no film in the camera as the canister will prevent the shaft from falling in.

Janome problem

The hook is placed in. Now, there is a bracket that goes in front of it. This bracket is locked by turning little knobs on each side. Now you can push the bobbin holder in firmly with the little handle pointed up. If you don't push hard enough it will fall out.

Pressure foot pressure control

The pressure foot knob had some problems. on this model. The solution was to remove the covers and the e clip that holds the knob in place. I install a belleville spring washer on the knobs shaft. This extra tension keeps the knob from turning when the sewing machine vibrates. This may be more difficult than most consumers want to attempt.

I turned the stop motion knob in order to wind a bobbin and the knob fell off! I have tried to put in back together but now only the knob will move not the balance wheel. As as result the clutch will not...

There should be a washer that fits over the balance wheel, if you dont put that back on the machine wont work.
Check around and see if it fell off when you removed the knob, or check to see if it is stuck inside the knob.

The washer is about 1" in diameter with a couple little tabs on it.
It will only work when installed correctly so if at first you fail just turn the ****** over!

Janome machine going backwards instead of forwards. Goes forward if I hold the reverse button down.

sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine

Janome Excel 5124 reverse lever

If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.

Took apart tension button on sewing machine

This could be tricky, look on line for a diagram of a typical tension assembly. There aren't that many parts but they can be put on in the wrong order. There is probably a set screw somewhere that has vibrated loose, you need to tighten it after replacing the unit.

Clutch Release Problem

You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.

Sewing machine

You may need to remove the shank shaft w/screw driver which is where the foot attaches to and replace it . I had a problem when I had to attach a ruffler foot. A little practice w.this can save you a lot of repair bills. Most Janome dealers can repair ths too. Kenmores are made by Janome.
