The red plastic is a device to assist clearing lint build up and is not critical for the operation of the shuttle (esp if you perform normal housekeeping and clean this area regularly, as you should)

Check there is no damage to the surface of the red plastic, as this will cause problems if not smooth (jamming)

It fits between the fixed half moon metal shuttle and the outer body.

There is a small notch which locates it into position.

Tilt the machine back 30 - 45 degrees to make the insertion easier, then fit the hook then the collar....flick the retaining clips to secure.

I always find this easiest with the machine tilted back......reduces the chances of bits falling out while you put the next piece in.

This is for front loading bobbin..........

The Shuttle hook will look very much like this, and marries this to the "half moon" of the fixed shuttle.

The retaining collar ring that holds it all together has a plate like protrusion (like bull horns), this faces to the top and to the back.......there should be a small lug (or two) with corresponding small hole or slot on the fixed housing (hook race) that locates the ring tightly in the correct position.

There should be 2 swivel arms (black plastic at 4 o'clock & 8 o'clock)) that move to hold the whole thing together by clipping onto a small lug on each side of the ring.

If you tip the machine on its back while you do all this, it makes the process easier, as things are less likely to fall out.........support the back with a soft object for convenience (tissue box, pillow etc)

The bobbin case goes in after the housing is assembled, if you try to do it first, it will prove more difficult.

If this is not quite accurate for your model a photo of the bits would be helpful

I got as secon hand sewing machine Janome my style 20 , but it has vertical spool holder , but it is given seperatly , i donno how to fix it, and cant even find any other accesories to fic or hold it.


Find a small piece of round plastic about 1/4 inch. The piece that you have can be filed so it fits in the hole. Get some felt and place it on it. The holder on top isn't so important. If you want that you can get a piece of plastic (very elastic style) and carefully drill a hole to fit. An easier way is to make a small hole in an eraser and push it on top.

The LCD screen on my janome 9000 sewing machine has gone blank, but i can still sew it's just i can't see the screen, can it be fixed?


Either the bulb has burned out or you have accidentally turned the control to darken the screen. Look in the top where the feet are stored. You should see a half moon shaped valve on the inside edge of the top front - that is the control for the brightness/darkness control of the screen.

What type of bobbin does the machine use. I checked the book but cant seem to find a number. Janome memory craft 9000


they are called janome bobbins, but need to be flat ( there are some out there with a curve). the best place is to try an janome store as i have had a few that will not fit

Machine is very loud and jumpy


Hi,
Usually this problem occurs on machines with a front load bobbin case. If so, remove the bobbin case, the shuttle hook cover (two levers to the sides of the bobbin case area cover and shuttle hook (part the bobbin case goes on and it is ½ mooned shaped). Then clean and oil (with Q-tips and sewing machine oil NOT 3 n1 oil) the round outer area where the hook rides. No lint at all and squeaky clean. Then 3 drops of sewing machine oil in rounded groove where the shuttle hook rides. Then replace the pieces:
Replace hook:
Identify the the hook driver (still in machine), it is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you lay the machine on its back,( it's easier). Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed to you. Needle gaurd on hook cover to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place, replace the bobbin case and viola!

Bobin casing


Look in the bobbin area to see where the screw fell out. Check your manual. Sometimes they have a good picture of the bobbin area.
