Check the available user's guide for info on this issue here:

It may not contain it but timing problems are normally caused by slippage of a cog belt and may require some work to get right again.

My Janome hd1000 is not picking up the bobbin thread. Can you help

Be sure to use a brand new needle. If that does not resolve the issue, your machine probably has a needle/hook timing issue. There are many web sites & videos on sewing machine timing. Or take it for service.

Attach the arms and legs on Raggedy Ann, do I fill them 1st or sew them 1st

You could do it either way but sewing 1st would be my choice. Leave a little opening on the side of the arms and legs to stuff and hand sew it closed.

I need a repair manual for a Blind Hemmer model BH600. The timing seems off and the chain stitch won't work. The owners manual has the problem solving page in every language but English. Thanks

Had the same problem, and after much anguish and coming close to throwing the thing out on the street, resorted to taking it to a competent sewing machine repair person. Seemed it was a combination of upper tension, and the lower arm for threading the chain. Cost me $50, but the machine works like a dream now!

I was serging some heavy material and I think something bent. I can't roll it forward by hand, the two arms that you thread as 1 and 2 hit each other,.

Looper timing is not for the novice, if you get it wrong and break one or the other it will cost the same as a replacement .
Pay someone to do this for you.

Kenmore 385 timing answers

the needle/ hook timing is achieved when the needle is in the lowest position and just starting to come up and the shuttle hook is at or close to the needle eye
there is a clamp on the vertical shaft the the needle is attached to so loosing of the clamp and moving the needle arm up or down to achieve that desired position is required
retension the clamp
if you machine is belt driven between the needle operation and the shuttle operation and it keeps altering timing it is possible that that belt needs replacing as the tooth sections of the belt may be worn off and jumping the teeth of the drive sprockets
it may be advisable to find another repair and get quotes first now that you have some idea of how it works

Timing if upper and lower loopers

if you look closely at the components of the machine they should have small marks on them that line up with each other or marks on the case. most sewing machines are timed this way the marks have to be lined up on both arms and that should work.

Machine foot will not work

Have you taken the foot control apart yet? What have you got to lose. Possibly something came loose that you can put back in place? There are small carbon contacts that may be put back in place. Just remember to put it back togeather the same way you took it apart. Or keep an eye on eBay and ask questions. Mostlikely a generic footcontrol will work. Good luck. Rick
