Loose stitches every 1

Any suggestions. I have tried cleaning, changing bobbin thread, new needle, changed tension...

Re: loose stitches every 1

Test it out on 2 pieces of material by rotating the wheele by hand. pay close attention to the 1" area. when you turn it by hand you can feel the area of question. is your bobbin spooled correctly. if all fails read the directions.

I am having trouble with applique on a memory craft janome 4800.

Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin case

I've forgotten how to drop the feed dogs-can you help

There is a little lever on the back of the free arm at the bottom. Push the lever to the right and that will lower the feed dog.

My Janome Memory Craft 4800 is skipping stitches. I've cleaned the bobbin race, replaced the needle and re-threaded both top and bobbin. Any suggestions? it also feels as if the thread is getting caught on...


Here are some things to check.

* Thread tension is too tight.
* Needle is bent or blunt.
* Needle is wrong size.
* Needle and thread does not match.
* Light pressure on presser foot.
* Incorrect setting of needle.

I hope this helps you.

The sewing advisor screen on a Janome 8000 is getting dim.

When your Memory Craft 8000 or MC 5700 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the LCD screen, or buy a new machine.
Janome no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available.

Full Access and Installation instructions are provided, so you can DIY or have someone else do the replacement for you.

Check this Link

Also includes advice, links & contacts to be able to Reset your screen and do a Self Diagnosis Routine to test your machine BEFORE you purchase a replacement LCD backlight for either the Janome MC 8000 or MC 5700, so you can check that there are no other troubles.
