Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine

2 Answers

I have a Janome 9700, and when ever I break my needle whether it is my fault or not 99% of the time I have to replace the bobbin case, if I don;t my bobbin jamms up badly, I clean the bobbin case every week and am so careful with it. I just find it very unusual that with this machine I go through so many bobbin casea and yet my other Janome, I have had it for 3 years and never ever had to replace it. I still have 1 month warranty with this machine should I mention this to the dealer as I have many times. thanks Evita evitaw1@yahoo.com.au

I cleaned my machine, inserted the bobbin case and now there is a wire on the right sticking up. Where does it belong and how do I put it in place?

My Janome harmony sewing machine is totally jammed


1. Try to take out the needle. If this doesn't work take out the bobbin carefully so you don't get stuck by the needle. Also remove the bobbin case. (thing that the bobbin sets in)
2. Once you have the two out try to turn the hand wheel. It should turn.
3. Replace the needle. Clean the bobbin area thoroughly. Oil the race where the bobbin case rides. One drop is all it needs.
4. With the needle inserted and no bobbin inserted turn the hand wheel.
5. If it turns ok then insert the bobbin case and bobbin.
6. Does it turn? If it is a problem turning then you will need to get it timed from a maintenance person.

Full rotary hook does not fully rotate


The hook timing is probably off. Needs to go in to the shop.

Bobbin case problems


Oh wow. That's definitely not good. Well you'll need to replace the bobbin case, and needle plate. Even the slightest burr can cause havoc. you could try smoothing down burrs with some fine sand paper but you'll need to replace the case eventually if you can't get this problem identified and fixed.

Next look for a build up or stray threads under and around the needle plate/bobbin area. Make absolutely certain you have the right needles for your machine.

Thread breaking


The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle


Bobbin thread breaks

1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly

2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder

3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly

4. Lower thread tension is two tight

Upper thread breaks
1.needle may be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
4.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin

also check the thread take up lever to make sure the thread has not come off of it cause that can make the machine jam up also

Needle jaming and thread gathering under bobin case


when this happens to me (the needle breaking) I make it a thing to do and that is to use a qtip with a bit of oil and clean the bobbin holder and then use canned air and blow out the lint from area and this may help you. You may have a tiny tiny piece of needle left in the holder and this will play havoc with any kind of sewing machine. I have suffered through it many times before I made this a practice when needle breaks
