judging by the picture, it loolks like the machine is the same as the 9000 and 8000, in that there is a slot for the disc roughly near the on/ off button. When the disc is in all the way, a button pushes out and that;'s how you get it out again

Cannot catch bobbin thread

try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is threaded correctly & inserted into the bobbin
case correctly
change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

if these suggestions don't help,, then the machine may need to have
the timing checked at a sewing machine shop

Where is the disc you speak of? My Janome has no outside disc as there is on most machines.

The discs are the located "within the dials" that you see on your machine. If it's a computerized machine they are "invisible" to you, but the machine's memory recognizes when you don't have your tension set correctly.
Now it's a good idea to set the tension at 3. If that still gives a problem. set the tension just a tad less. Try machine again. Not satisfied? Increase your tension MORE but no more than 1/2 until you try it. Usually, too, it's because needle incorrectly inserted. It has to go all the way UP in the needle bar groove as far as it can go, flat side toward the back, and tighten the needle bar screw securely. Keep the presser foot UP when threading; otherwise, the thread won't fall into the tension discs (yes, there's that word again, Mary Lou!) and hold that thread taut as you go from disc to disc when you thread it so that it can locate the slots. Keep going! Make sure you clean out the feed dogs (the silver plate located under your needle where the "teeth" are. these move the fabric when sewing so you never need to pull or push the fabric; however, sometimes pieces of broken thread get caught in there. Gently sweep out with the bristle ends of your small sewing brush). I sure hope this helps. You can read all about the parts of your sewing machine. Got to just to view the tips and tricks section to the left of the web page. It's difficult explaining how to fix the machine if you aren't familiar with the sections of the machine we are specific about. Much success to you.

Don't worry! I'll try my best to help out here. Problem is most likely in bobbin area. Remove bobbin, clean with brush to remove any threads caught in tension discs. Brush the feed dogs (teeth area under your needle plate).Rethread with presser foot in UP position so thread can locate tension slots. I recommend new needle and remember to push it up into needle bar shaft flat side back a's far a's it will go. Tighten needle clamp screw. That press foot must stay raised now while you insert needle And thread it. Tension: Set at 4. Just a very short turn of tension if 4 is not giving desired results. I hope this helps. It's probably very frustrating, I understand, but I know you can remedy this easily. Follow above steps SLOWLY! Jimmy

My sewing machine stopped sewing. I changed the needle cleaned out the bobbin area. It looks like the top thread is not picking up the bottome thread (changed bobbins too). the pressure feet are working...

Hi, Nancy! You obviously know how to look after your machine, but sometimes we get so excited about a new project we forget some of the basics...I know I do! Is the bobbin in the bobbin case correctly? There may be a diagram on the machine showing you the correct placement. When you replaced the needle, did you make sure the groove in the needle was facing the front of the machine? That groove is actually another thread guide and it's important that it be inserted correctly. You might check for lint between the upper tension discs. I hope one of these suggestions helps!

The stitching is good on top, but on the bottom it bunches.

Rethread, I know that you think that you have it threaded right but it is not catching on the tension discs somewhere along the way. Do this test, with the presser foot down, pull on the the thread, it should barely move, now put the presser foot up, pull on the thread, it should feed smoothly. Now, insert a new needle if it still does not sew right. Good luck

There are two types of discs - single and double.
For the thinner single discs do as follows:
1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the single disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch length or width you wish. I usually try "3" for the width and 1/2 for the length to start.

For the thicker double discs do as follows:

1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the double disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch width.
7. The stitch length must be put on "A" - this is the difference between the single and double discs!
I hope this helps!
