The shudder bothers me!!
Would suggest take it back before you start messing with it or letting a sewing machine tech near it. Last thing you want to do is run the risk of voiding the warranty.
Best of luck

I have a janome 6600. The stitches started jamming up and breaking.What might be causing the challenge with the stitches?


Difficult to say without really seeing what's happening and which thread is breaking. If the top thread is breaking, check to make sure the thread is not wrapped around the spool pin or a thread guide.

Just some things to try:
Install a brand new needle.
Be sure to clean and remove all the thread pieces, lint, etc from under the needle plate, around the shuttle, etc. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual.
Remove all the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top and rethread the machine from the beginning. Check that the thread path is correct and the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly.

Be sure to use good quality thread--no Old or bargain bin threads!

I have multiple threads coming out the bobin space and making a mess of the back side.


called bird nesting and is a result of too loose a needle thread tension
if you use an automatic tensioner or using the numbers
and you still have a problem, the correct tension is a resistance to you pulling the thread prior to threading the needle

Model 230. Why is it losing the thread at the needle everytime I sew?


The thread sounds like it is not running freely so the upper tension is either too tight or blocked by lint.
If neither of these solutions work then try changing your needle as a blunt or wrong needle can also be a cause

How do I adjust tension on a Necchi Lydia 510 sewing machine?


loops under fabric means top tension needs to be tightened
try cleaning the top tension dial with some unwaxed dental floss and see if that helps. if it doesn't then the tension dial may need to be replaced
also check to make sure the spool of thread is not getting caught on the spool holder
also try a new needle--one that is correct for the fabric being sewed

Try this test, with the presser foot down, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, the thread should barely move, when pulled. This sometimes seats the thread in the tension discs. Hope it helps you.

Sew Cute SC20 Mechanical Sewing Machine: how to thread sew cute machine ...


Place the origin bobbin thread so the thread is coming up (clockwise) extend to the thread tention, to the top thread holder, then down through the arm and then through the bottom thread holder, through the square thread guide above the needle, then through the needle, front to back. Check out a picture on ebay or amazon. That could help you visualize it.
If you are having trouble with the thread breaking, try changing the thread on the bobbins. The thread that comes with the machine is poor quality and jams & breaks. If you still have trouble, and might suspect the needle is dull or bent. Change it, it makes a difference. I had the thread problem with the machine right out of the box. Changed it and it works great!

Simple solution..
take the thread off your machine, set your tension to the middle setting. rethread your machine up to the needle. before threading the needle, put your presser foot down. If your thread pulls hard, then the machine is threaded right. If it pulls easily, you need to chead the thread thru the tension wheel.

Rule of thumb.
Loops on the bottom, problem on the top.
Loops on the top, problem is on the bottom.
