Winding the bobbin?

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.

Re Janome 7330 bobbin winding problem. Thread jumps out of the top guide when bobbin is winding. I've tried everything; different speeds, main spool upright,tightening the screw on the thread guide.


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?

How to Wind Bobbin on Janome

Bobbin winder is engaged and shows up on screen correctly, but sewing mode is still engaged and bobbin winding keeps stopping.


check the drive knob on the end of the machine
it should be loose when winding a bobbin
if it is tight or seized then that will drive the needle

My Janome 3018 will not wind a nice tight bobbin. They are loose and spongy. This machine is brand new. I have double checked that it is threaded properly and the thread is in the correct place and


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.

I cant remember how to fill the bobbin with thread :(


Insert the empty bobbin case onto the bobbin winder in the sewing machine.

Step 2 Set the spool of thread onto the thread peg. Use the same thread you want to use on your material to obtain the best finished stitch.

Step 3 Follow the arrows or guides to take the thread from the spool to the empty bobbin.
Step 4 Start the thread around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.

Step 5 Push the small lever against the bobbin spool to hold it in place. This disengages the needle so it won't go up and down while winding the bobbin.

Step 6 Press the foot or knee pedal to start the winding process. Stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin for your project.

Step 7
Cut the thread between the thread spool and the bobbin. Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case so you can begin sewing.

Open to clarifications.

Bobbin winding message


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.
