Question about Janome 4623 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

Janome 4623 LE Plus: The feed dog does not advance the fabric during the sewing cycle. Even though the feed dog appears to move through the cycle as expected, ie a reciprocating up/down forward/back movement. The machine is serviced regularly, so it is not due to any build up of lint, etc. and the feed dog is engaged, ie in the raised position not lowered. The initial symptoms were a gradual stiffness in the handwheel, when rotating by hand. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated ...

SOURCE: Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC

These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.
good luck!

SOURCE: needle movement

It sounds like the needle bar of the machine has come loose inside. This will need setting in the correct position height wise or you risk damaging the hook. Sorry but it may need to go to the repairer.

SOURCE: Feed Dogs on Janome 1600P

I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

SOURCE: Janome MyLock 634D serger won't

if the handwheel won't turn, i'd double check nothing is still stuck. also, make sure you didn't half disengage the blade as they have several positions ( so you can disengage it for rolled hem etc) If you can't find anything I'm sorry to say something may have been damaged when the fabric got caught.

Why when I sew the fabrics not advance even if the claws are raised and the machine does not stop sewing. I have to close the switch


With the issues you are experiencing, it may be wise to take it for service.

Even though the feed dogs are raised, are they actually moving forward and back as you stitch (remove the thread, raise the presser foot, rotate the handwheel, and watch the feed dog action)? Check that the stitch length is set long enough that the feed dogs will be moving the fabric rather than sewing in place. Another thing to check is whether there is a pressure adjustment for the presser foot. If you are sewing light weight fabric, sometimes the pressure needs to be increased so the feed dogs are able to grab the fabric.

As for the machine running on, it could be a multitude of issues, ie the foot control, electrical... This may be something that a professional should evaluate.

Fabric not advancing


run you finger over the feed dogs under the foot - can us feel them above the surround? if not, you have placed your machine into free style sewing, and the feed dog does not advance the fabric in this mode. Look in your manual and see where the feed dog gets lowered/raised - raising it again should solve your problem.

if your talking about the feed dogs that they are not up and the fabric is not being feed, then check in your manual to see if you can manually move the feed dogs to the up position so the sewing machine will sew. here is a link for a manual if you don't have one
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-janome-decor-excel-5018.aspx
if the information about the feed dogs is not in the manual then you'll have to contact a sewing machine repair shop about having the feed dogs checked to see if there is somthing wrong with them.

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

My fabric wasn't moving so I lowered the feed dogs and now I cannot raise them. The button in the back of the machine moves both ways but the feed dogs are not moving. They are staying in the down...


Hello

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.

Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.

Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.

Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.

Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.

The feed dog will rise as soon as you turn the handwheel one time. Just put the fabric in it and sew. It will come up automatically as long as you have moved the lever to the correct position.
