Question about Janome Sewing Machines
I have a Janome 1600P QC and use it on a Little Gracie 2, with the Sure Stitch Regulator.
The machine I was using before on the frame was a Janome 6600 with the Sure Stitch.
On both machines I've been using Valdani 50wt. thread in the top and bottom.
My problem. the machine will be stitching with no problems then all the sudden the machine will just slow down to a crawl for about 4 stitches then speed up all the sudden - be ok, then slow down again. I called Grace about it and they said it was the 6600 wasn't fast enough for the quilting, so I went out and purchased a faster machine that is giving me the same problems.
However, I did noticed that after cleaning the grooves in the carriage wheels it worked perfect for that row then the next row I did it started to drag again. I also noticed that the track on the right side of the frame was cracked - I couldn't figure out what was making a cracking noise then I discovered it when I ran a cloth across the track.
So I'm not sure if this is a machine problem, frame problem, or Sure Stitch problem?
Sorry for your headache. It is the frame. If it is not level, balanced, you have hell to pay. Also it there is a nick in the grooves of the carriage tracks this will cause a machine problem. You may be able to repair the frame, or level it about the old level the table trick, put something under that part.
