Re: bobbin wont spin

I had the same problem last night but was able to solved it by flipping the plastic bobbin over and re-seating it on the post. This time it clicked in and I was then able to get the post to spin. Good Luck!

Can I fix a broken bobbin winder on my Janome sewing machine by myself?

If your bobbin winder is malfunctioning and you are unable to resolve the issue, for ~$25 you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder at the local fabric store (JoAnns or Hancocks) or even online (Amazon).

I am having a problem with my Janome Decor Excel 5018. It was working fine, until the bobbin thread won't gather with the top thread. And the top thread is binding up underneath the fabric. Kim

try a new needle

rethread the machine top & bobbin, that way you make sure the thread is not caught anywhere

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted in the machine

clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread & lint

always keep a long thread tail of 3 to 5 inches long, & keep the tails pulled back behind the needle
before sewing

if none of these things help the problem,, then it may need to be serviced

I have a Janome memory craft 5700. when I turn it on the screen light up with an error of a picture of a bobbing with a piece of thread stretch from the top. No further activity. How can I solve this...

This is due to the bobbin winder being in the Right hand position read to wind,....but with no bobbin in it....just move bobbin winder to Left to disengage.

Need to know how to thread bobbin

manuals can be purchased @ janome. com. your machine should have a bobbin winder. Set empty bobbin on the bobbin winder pin. Thread spool of thread though guide(or tension wheel on the top of the machine;NOT the stitching tension.) wrap thread around bobbin to start, and push bobbin toward the flywheel. slowly press foot pedal and bobbin should begin to turn. apply more pressure to foot pedal to increase speed.When full, bobbin winder should kick back to stop.

Wind bobbin on Decor Excel 5018

Once you have the thread guided and the bobbin is on the thread winder spindle, push the bobbin to the right.  The machine will not sew again until the spindle is in the left position.
