I just got a new Janome Mini Compact machine today, and I have followed all the procedures and steps for winding the bobbin. But, for some reason when I am pressing the foot switch, the tension disk is not moving. And the sewing part of the machine is, do I have to use the Thread tension dial, or change anything to enable the winding process?
Most of the entry level machines will have either a clutch knob or an automatic release when the bobbin winder mechanizm is engaged (put a bobbin on and more the unit to you right). If it does not disengage the clutch automaticly then either loosen the clutch wheel by turing or pulling. Sometines you have to grab the whole clutch wheel to disenage the mechanism to free wheel while winding the bobbin. Now press you foot control to wind the bobbin.

Take a look at this video. There are others too. That is a really unusual way and nothing like the Singers, and Pinnocks that I have used. If you want to see other videos, there are a few. Google 'Janome 7330 bobbin winding', and then click on the Video tab. Let me know how you get on?
You are not exactly threading the machine when you wind the bobbin. So follow the directions for winding the bobbin, make sure the thread fits under the little revolving wheel, and make sure that the stitch part of the machine is disengaged.
Under the top cover, on the right hand side where the bobbin winder is, there is a small switch which is activated when the bobbin is being wound. You will need to remove the cover and reposition the switch (it's located towards the front of the machine) to make it work properly. sewman7
