Question about Janome Memory Craft 3000

1 Answer

The top thread on my Janome 300E is getting caught in the bobbin. It starts bunching up on the back of the fabric that I am trying to embroider and it gets stuck. When I pull it off all the top thread is caught up where the bobbin is. How do I fix it?

If your thread is getting caught underneath it's usually the UPPER thread is threaded wrong or not correctly through the tension discs. This can also happen if you're using Sticky Back stabilizer. Make sure you have a new needle in case there's a burr on the old one which can also cause this problem.

Why is the fabric bunching into the bobbin when embroidering with the Singer Futura


bobbin thread is too high pressure or too low pressure on teh top adjustment!

remove bobbin and turn tension screw about 1/8turn left (anticlockwise) check if still grabbing, if so - top thread turn about 1/4 turn (at embroidery ir should do automatically, but sometimes need kick...).

check if it is still grabbing on the bottom, do it grab during straight? zigzag? double zigzag? if do not - setting on the pattern need to be look at. if it tangle as well on these three - need definitely servicing...

follow manual how to adjust.

Like the last pair of photos here? http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 Clean the machine, rethread from scratch with the presser foot UP while you're threading the top of the machine, fetch up the bobbin thread, and hold the bobbin and top thread ends together behind the presser foot while you're starting each seam -- just for the first 2-3 stitches of each seam.

The bottom side of the item I am embroidering is showing all of the top thread color. I have adjusted the tension dial and bobbin tension. Any other suggestions?


Normally you will see the about 1/3 bobbin thread and about 2/3 of the top thread on the bottom side of the fabric. If you dont see any of the bobbin thread on the back side turn the upper tension (needle tension) to a larger number.
Good Luck,
Doug

Hi, my thread gets caught and pulls the materal into the foot and i can not sew due to the jamming and the thread get all bunched up by the bobbin


I had similar problems when I first started sewing. Try adjusting the tension in your thread - less tension for lighter fabrics, more tension for heavier fabrics. This will stop the needle from pulling the threads in the fabric.

As for the thread getting bunched up in the bobbin - this is most likely because your bobbin is the wrong size for the machine, or that you did not thread the bobbin properly. Try re-threading, this time making sure you pull the thread into the bobbin container tightly. This should stop the bobbin from jumping around the container and spitting thread.

My top thread gets caught in the bobbin. When I


Hello,
Here are a couple of solutions to try.

* Try re-threading your machine. It may be threaded wrong.

* Raise your feed dogs
If your machine has this feature.

* When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will prevent them from getting caught in your machine.

I hope this helps.

Singer ce350 bobbin thread on top


Be sure when you are threading the top thread that you ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the tension disk and allows the thread to seat properly.

Have you gone back and re-tested on your test fabric? Does it work okay on the test fabric? If so, then there's a suspicion that it has something to do with the fabric, needle & thread of your project. Is your project fabric very dense, heavy... Are you using a stabilizer? A hoop--is it taut, not stretched? Make sure the fabric is not trampolining. Could be an incompatibility. The needle & thread may be having difficulty piercing the fabric. Try a different weight needle, perhaps a microtex or embroidery needle.

Janome Sew Mini bobbin problem


Hi, Usually wrap-ups in the bobbin area are caused by the lack of tension on the top thread. The slack arm ( shinny lever that moves up and down while sewing) has to pull the loop around the bobbin case and it does so only if the tension on the top thread is sufficient to keep it from pulling more thread of the spool.
Try this: Thread the top of the machine all the way just short of the needle eye. When the presser foot is up the thread should pull through easily. Now drop the presser foot (this closes the tension discs) and pull the tread while adjusting the upper tension control.
If everything is working correctly you should feel the drag on the thread change if not something is keeping the discs from closing.
Most Janomes aren't too difficult to remove the nose cover, usually just one screw and you can get a look at the thread path. Look for thread wrapped around the mechanism.
Sorry, no easy answer but I hope this helps.
