Something is jammed further then you can see. stop. be patient here. if unplugging and plugging it back on does not fix. just take a deep breath, you do not want it to break. its just a machine. i would suggest taking it to a shop to see if they can clear your jam by an adjustment, for free at your local store. or a tune up of $50.00 bucks . this machine is well worth it! its a bizarre thing that has happened, but to force it you could really hurt it more then you know.

i have the same machine, what do you mean the top thread is breaking off? exactly where do you see it breaking off. is your tension soo tight that it breaks? is your thread soo old that it breaks? explain a bit more.
1/28/13 - I have Janome Harmony 2049 that was initially sewing forward with no reverse and then after about 12 inches of sewing would ONLY sew in reverse. After spending an hour getting the plastic housing off...I was able to locate the shaft that made the reverse. It needed lubrication and after working it in and unjamming the part from the down position, the forward and reverse now work! Huh, right? Hope it continues to work well. It is a smooth running machine, otherwise. Good luck!
place spool of thread in , route it towards your bobbin holder, take thread and put through one hole about 4 inches hanging ontop. press it in and slide it to the right where you hear a click, hit the peddle, should be winding, it will automatically stop on its own when full. click it to the left when done, snip it and then drop that into your bobbin holder , cover your plate, thread your upper thread and presto you are now sewing with your threaded bobbin, always remember these steps. #1 material choice #2 thread weight #3 needle size. you got to match those 3 for beautiful perfect stitches.
Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.
Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.
Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.
Sounds like the reverse mechanism has jammed...either with lint or lack of use and oil/lint has frozen the mechanism. Unplug the machine and remove the base. Clean all the lint with small brush and vacuum. Try the reverse lever to see where the connecting rods are and identify the collar around the bottom shaft....try to move manually, use a little lubricant where the collar moves on the shaft. In extreme cases it may take several applications over several days to rectify this.
