Question about Sewing Machines
Set top tension at 4 for most purposes on this model.
Are you certain that it is threaded correctly and not trapped or double wound on the take up arm or elsewhere ??
Do try a re-thread just to be sure.
Bobbin case may have thread or lint jammed in the spring allowing eased tension below and presenting as increase above.
Check for and clean any lint trapped in the bobbin case.....anatomy of Janome Bobbin Case:
Drop-in Bobbin case will look similar to this image with the tension screw in the middle of the metalwork....
...the other screw at one end is holding it all together, so beware....it is not a tragedy to undo the whole lot and clean it, but very gingerly and lay the bits out in sequence and orientation, or you risk tearing your hair out !
