Sewing club member starting sewing with a metal bobbin.
Our club owns Janome computerized machines and one of our members sat down and started sewing with a metal bobbin used in mechanical Kenmore machines. The machine died and yielded the Stop of Safety message. Does a certain problem occur when a metal bobbin is used by mistake?

hi there do you mean the bobbin race or just the plastic bobbins
both are avaliable from janome direct also plastic bobbins avaliable easily from any sewing store selling janome accessories or try e bay mary h
are you sure you have the thread over the right place? it should be from the spool to the small metal wheel on the top of the machine and nothing else, also make sure your using a janome or s-class bobbin ( also it should be a plastic bobbin if it loads from the top of the machine and not the front ) when i fill a bobbin i also start out slow sometimes keeping my finger loosley on the thread itself before it winds on the bobbin to give it more stability.
I have a Janome 9000, was sewing and broke needle, replaced and broke another. I didn't have machine threaded, took out bobbin and would sew a little and stop saying thread broke. I took off top plate and started machine again, sew a little and stop saying thread broke. So I took out bobbin case and sewed again and stopped repeating the message. Everything looks OK, bobbin case and top plate. I guess I want to know if the timing could be off or do you think it is the computer part of the machine...Should I take it to the Sewing Machine Shop??
