If you are unable to wind bobbins on your machine, you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder for ~$30 called the Sidewinder, avlb at JoAnn's, Amazon, etc.

This is a great little accessory (avlb for battery and/or electricity) because it saves wear n tear on the machine plus multiple bobbins can be wound without having to unthread the machine.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't wind

I have checked the gears underneath and see no missing teeth for the bobbin part. The bobbin "seat" does raise, but does not engage. Thanks

I had that problem the first time I tried to wind a bobbin. What a mess. The next time I let the thread run through my finger and thumb before reaching the bobbin. I had to do the same on a previous Kenmore.

I've also found that the heavier Bernina bobbins don't 'jump' around.

SOURCE: Winding the bobbin?

Most of the entry level machines will have either a clutch knob or an automatic release when the bobbin winder mechanizm is engaged (put a bobbin on and more the unit to you right). If it does not disengage the clutch automaticly then either loosen the clutch wheel by turing or pulling. Sometines you have to grab the whole clutch wheel to disenage the mechanism to free wheel while winding the bobbin. Now press you foot control to wind the bobbin.

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.

3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.

4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.

5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.

6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.

7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.

8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.

9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

SOURCE: Bobbin winding message

Under the top cover, on the right hand side where the bobbin winder is, there is a small switch which is activated when the bobbin is being wound. You will need to remove the cover and reposition the switch (it's located towards the front of the machine) to make it work properly.

Janome excel 5018 decor needle goes up and down when I'm trying to fill the bobbin


Usually, the needle bar moving means that the bobbin winder spindle (with the bobbin) wasn't moved all the way to the right. If you moved the spindle, then there may be a damaged part inside the sewing machine below the spindle. (The spindle may not be engaging the winding mechanism which stops the needle bar.) I've found the bobbin winder is still available at one parts store: https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-janome-653508015.aspx . However, there may be other damage inside the machine that could be involved.

See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/994905/Janome-Decor-Excel-5018.html?page=24#manual for the pictures of moving the bobbin winding spindle.

I hope this helps.

Re Janome 7330 bobbin winding problem. Thread jumps out of the top guide when bobbin is winding. I've tried everything; different speeds, main spool upright,tightening the screw on the thread guide.


Take a look at this video. There are others too. That is a really unusual way and nothing like the Singers, and Pinnocks that I have used. If you want to see other videos, there are a few. Google 'Janome 7330 bobbin winding', and then click on the Video tab. Let me know how you get on?

How to Wind Bobbin on Janome

Bobbin winder is engaged and shows up on screen correctly, but sewing mode is still engaged and bobbin winding keeps stopping.


check the drive knob on the end of the machine
it should be loose when winding a bobbin
if it is tight or seized then that will drive the needle

My Janome 3018 will not wind a nice tight bobbin. They are loose and spongy. This machine is brand new. I have double checked that it is threaded properly and the thread is in the correct place and


You are not exactly threading the machine when you wind the bobbin. So follow the directions for winding the bobbin, make sure the thread fits under the little revolving wheel, and make sure that the stitch part of the machine is disengaged.

You need to ask Janome these questions, rather than Fixya I think. The plastic bobbin in the plastic bobbin holder does make a little bit of noise but I don't find it problematic.

Providing you are using "Janome" plastic bobbins and are putting them in rotating the right way, as per the little image on the clear cover, there is no reason that the thread cutter should be dislodging the bobbin. When I use the thread cutter, my bobbin turns as thread is drawn off it, but it doesn't move upwards.

Sounds like you have already replaced the black plastic bobbin holder, is that what you mean by "Shuttle"??

My 6500 has had 2 replacement bobbin holders as I keep striking it with the needle during jam ups, which caused plastic burrs on it. On the last service the technician added a little piece that is a janome "after sale replacement" part. It is slightly longer than the standard part, and is a little metal bit on the left hand side of the rotary hook area which seems to be working at holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a big jam up since he fitted it. But before this, I would dislodge the bobbin holder with a small jam, and then it would just jam and jam until I removed the needle plate with the screwdriver, removed the bobbin and bobbin holder, cleaned out all the thread fragments, then replaced the bobbin holder back into the correct position lining up the two red arrows. Then replaced the needle plate and rethreaded. I learnt to modify my sewing expectations and not try to sew really thick seams as this will just dislodge the bobbin holder again. Jeans hems were always my problem seam, I use a "Seam Jumper" now to handle going from thin to thick seam, and so far, so good.

So I would suggest you ring Janome in Akld and talk to their technical advisor a bit, describing your problem. They may suggest sending it to them for a check out to establish what is going wrong.

If you have trouble describing the issue to then you could always film it with a digital camera and send the file to them.

My only other thought is how you wind the bobbins. It is really important to wind the bobbin smoothly and evenly top and bottom, my 6500 will wind all in the middle if I let it just run, so I always wind carefully and give the thread a nudge with my fingertip to ensure it fills evening top, middle and bottom. But it sounds like you are an experienced sewer and know this already.

I'd say ring Janome and have a chat, I find if you keep your approach friendly and neutral rather than "I've never got on with this machine" that you may get some help from them at resolving this issue.

make sure the bobbin winder on the top of the machine is all the way to the left. otherwise the machine thinks you are trying to wind a bobbin and sew at the same time.
