Question about Janome HF-107
My Janome Sw-2018E hasn't been used for some time. I just tried to stitch and it is making great loops underneath of the top cotton (using two different colours to test). I tried removing the needle plate and cleaning the feed dogs, hook race and bobbin holder but there is no change. I have re-threaded the machine several times. I notice the feed dogs did not move when I pushed the lever at the back of the free arm bed. I don't know if they should. When I start to sew it goes for a while and then stops with a clunk. Underneath there is masses of cotton. Help as I want to put new zips in my baby granddaughter's sleeping bags. Linda

Take out your bobbin case and examine it for nicks, scratches and or rough spots.If the problem is not too bad it may be possible to buff out the bad spot with an emery stick or emery cloth. If that isn't possible or it makes too much noise after you buff it you will have to replace it. Look especially along the edges and underneath.

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.

SOURCE: won't stitch properly
ever tried adjusting the thread tension control? clean if possible
tighen it more, loose tension adjustment causes loose stitch and tangling of the thread.

Take out the thread. Now cut the end of thread using a pair scissors. Now try that again. Once i had the same problem and later found out that the uneven end of the thread caused problem by refusig to move around freely hence preventing the stich formation
