My grandmas's New Home (Janome now) 531 machine

I just picked up my grandmas's machine to use and I was following the booklet to thread it up right however in the book after the thread goes between the tension disks, it says to then go through the check spring. There is a picture of the check spring protruding from the left hand side of the tension dial, however my machine does not have this 'check spring'.

Does this mean hat my machine will not sew properly? I tried sewing a line and it seems ok but not perfect....i think the bottom thread is a tad bit loose....how do i know when the tension is perfect and is it this check spring that is affecting it? Can i use the machine without this check spring?

I have a Finesse new home 23 4 overlocker. How do I start the threading please.


A manual would be helpful:

Instruction Manual Janome Newhome 234

Even if you are unable to find a manual for your particular model, similar models usually thread the same or similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine so the thread will seat in the tension disks.

I have a janome 2049LX. Why doesn't my double needle pick up the bobben thread?


The length of the needle might be too short. Compare the length to your single needles.

if these suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be
checked for a timing problem
Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

My daughter in law's machine won't pick up the bobbin thread. I've never even seen a bobbin that loads like that so I don't know what to tell her. In fact, I've never even heard of a new home sewing...


New Home is Janome.

The bobbin thread may not be picking up because the needle is in backwards.

Refer to the manual for the machine - some require the flat side of the needle face to the back of the machine and some to the left side of the machine.

Will not pick up bobbin thread


Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Bobbing thread not picking


Hi,
Make sure you have threaded the bobbin thread correctly. Also your top thread must be correctly threaded in order to pick up the bobbin thread.
Please let me know if I can help any further.

Best wishes,
Graemevm
