SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

Janome sew mini needle not picking up bobbin thread.


Hi: Is this a needle provided with the machine as new? What type of fabric are you sewing... have you tried a different fabric? Is the bobbin placed into the machine correctly with it unwinding in the right direction?

Janome mini heavy duty sewing machine


when you sew keep a eye on the thread take up lever & see if the thread comes off while your sewing, I've had this happen to me & I've been sewing for over 30 years. if this does happen, take a pair of pliers & very gently close the take up lever just alittle but not enough to damage it.
also check the needle to see if it's damaged--if your not sure change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
always make sure the fabric & needle & thread are compatable--the thread must be able to pull thru the needle with out any problem
also check to make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate or bobbin or bobbin case

Upper thread not engaging bobbin thread...


Hiya Kandie. Usually when you can't pull the bobbin through, the wrong size needle is in, try a different size needle. Hope I was some help for you.

When I sew, the topstitch looks fine but when I turn it over, there are large loops of thread?


clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
also clean in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
also check the top thread tension--try 3 or 4
rethread the machine top thread & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is wound correctly- if it's not wound correctly it will cause sewing problems
also change the needle

Thread keeps breaking


Have you checked any edge the thread might contact for knicks which should be files or sanded down? Also, I had to replace my bobbin case after a number of years as it had kind of stretched out and allowed my bobbin to pop around and consequently broke many threads.

Janome mini sewing machine not picking up thread


Is it under warranty? A dealer should be able to check it out without cost to you. Do you have the bobbin in properly.
