Sounds like you have a broken vertical shaft gear. Take it to a repair person.

I have a Janome sewing machine. There is a problem when i try to draw up the bottom thread from the bobbin. The needle doesnt go through the hole to catch the thread at the bottom


Please elaborate. Is the needle hitting the needle plate so it cannot reach the bobbin thread, or is the needle simply not moving down into the lower position?

Thread bunches up into a knotted mess on bottom. Bobbin doesn't sit flat inside the bobbin case but spins with a tilt, lower on the left and higher on the right. Bobbin touches plastic cover plate.


Usually, thread bunching under the fabric is an upper tension issue. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread.

With the bobbin case operating at a tilt, there is something mechanically wrong with the machine. It may be best to take it for service.

The needle with top thread couldn't draw the bottom thread from the bobbin to ready the machine for sewing


Are you saying that the upper thread is not pulling the bobbin thread up to the top?

Install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--allows the thread to seat completely in the upper tension disk.

Check that the bobbin thread is inserted in the bobbin case facing the correct direction and that the bobbin case is threaded correctly through the bobbin case tension. Be sure to leave at least a 6" tail of thread on both the upper and lower threads.

Retest.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the bobbin case may be defective/malfunctioning or your machine probably needs professional service.

Bobbin not functioning in my sewing machine.


Consult your owner's manual. It sounds like possibly you don't have the bobbin threaded in the bobbincase properly. The bobbin must spin (either clockwise or counterclockwise per the manual) a certain direction and the thread needs to be threaded in the bobbincase in order for the bobbin to turn.

I pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin



Bobbin Winding 1 Put spool of thread on spool pin. ] Use spool cushion when using cross wound thread. ] Use spool cap when using parallelwound thread. 2 Lift thread guide bar all the way up, and run thread through triangular thread guide as shown in drawing. 3Run thread through bobbin winding thread guide as shown in drawing. 4 Run thread through top thread notch 1, and align bottom thread notch 2 with guide pin on bobbin winder shaft. 5 Press bobbin stop up against empty bobbin. If the bobbin stop does not slide easily between the top and bottom of the bobbin, check that the bobbin is seated properly with the guide pin (4) inserted into the lower notch 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin Begin
8 Manually move bobbin stop back to original position. 9 Cut thread and remove bobbin.

bobbin insertion 1 Lift slide plate (and open bobbin door). 2 Put bobbin into the bobbin case. ] Run thread through thread notch and under latch spring, so that a length of about 10 cm is exposed. ] Use a bobbin case with an idling prevention spring. 3 Pull the latch lever of the bobbin case out and push the bobbin case into the shuttle race and release the latch lever. ] If the latch lever is not all the way on the hook, it may fly off during sewing and cause lower thread breakage. 4 Lower slide plate and close bobbin door, following numbers 1 2 above in order. 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin is full. Take foot off foot controller. * Place the thread end so that it does not protrude from the bobbin. Bobbin Stop
so this will be ok and no need to worry about this
