You need to take a drawing of the plug on the machine and go into any sewing machine shop to match it up

How to set up


  • Remove your Janome sewing machine from the box, placing the main machine on a hard surface appropriate for sewing and the accessories and smaller items to the side. Unwrap all of the wrapped items. Remove the tape used to protect the machine during shipment. Set aside the power cord and foot pedal.

  • 2

    Attach the power cord to the machine. The power cord plug-in area is located on the lower right side of all Janome sewing machines and has a series of metal prongs and a power switch. Fit the female end of the power cord onto the metal prongs and push it gently until it no longer moves.

  • 3

    Attach the foot pedal to the machine. The foot pedal plug-in is also located on the lower right side of all Janome machines, right next to the power cord plug-in. Press the foot pedal plug-in into place gently until it no longer moves.

  • 4

    Turn the power switch on. The power switch is located in the same area as the foot pedal and power cord plug-ins and is a rectangular black switch. Press this button. The sewing machine light will turn on.

  • 5

    Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, located on the upper right top side of the sewing machine. Place the thread so that the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise motion, with the thread coming off the back of the spool.

  • 6

    Insert a needle into your machine. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate size and type of needle. Turn the needle clamp screw, located above the needle area, toward you to loosen it. Turn the needle so that the flat part of the upper shaft area faces the rear and slide the shaft of the needle up and into the needle area. Turn the needle clamp screw away from you to tighten the needle and lock it into place.

  • 7

    Wind the bobbin and insert the bobbin into the bobbin case. This procedure may vary depending on the model of your Janome machine, so consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

  • 8

    Thread your machine according to the directions in your owner's manual. Like the bobbin, this procedure can vary widely depending on the model of your Janome machine.

  • 9

    Set your tension, located on the front of the machine, to halfway between three and four. The tension may be a dial or it may be computerized and located on the LCD screen, depending on your model. Consult your owner's manual to find out how to set the tension.

  • 10

    Place a piece of scrap fabric in the machine and sew a test seam before you start to work on a project to make sure all of your settings are correct.

My Janome DC2010 sews after the foot pedal is released, begins sewing by it's self, will stop only if the power is turned off


Mine just did that. After speaking to the tech where I bought my machine, he said when it happens again, remove the cord for the pedal from the machine. If it stops, it's the pedal. It worked on mine, so my problem is the pedal. Hope that helps and leads someone else to a solution!

I can't find my manuel or power cord for my Hello Kitty machine. How can I obtain one?


Hi
I can usually find manuals on Janome no problem but I can't access the one for Hello Kitty.
If you click on the specifications for any machine on the Janome site a PDF appears with a download manual button next to it. I can see the PDF but no download manual button.

This machine does look similar and I could get the link for a free manual, hope this helps. If not contact Janome.

Try ebay for a power cord. A Janome cord should fit more than one machine. Just check the connection pins etc match.
