Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a janome 10000. I bought a new bobbin case, which I bought a couple of times. Broke the tips off. I put it in my machine and it wont sew, the bottom stiches are not catching the bobbin thread. Do you have any ideas what else my problem could be? I have tried changing all the tension but still the same could I have broke something else in the bobbin case? I hate to be with out it if its something I can fix myself. thank you crystal

Hi

The upper thread could be tangled. Remove the thread completely from the machine. The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool. Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual. Remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
One Point Advice Installing a bobbin into a bobbin case

  • You could be holding the needle thread too tight.
    Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
  • The needle could be thread incorrectly.
    Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
  • The needle could be bent or improperly inserted.
    Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
Hope this helps...

Daniel

I have a Janome Memory Craft 4900. I broke a needle while sewing in a zipper. I replaced the needle,but now the machine makes a medal scraping noise when I sew. I took off the needle plate and bobbin...


did you find the tip of the needle? Also you may have a nick in the metal where the needle hit and broke.It can catch on other parts and need to be sanded or replaced.One time I had this issue and I found the tiny broken tip under my bobbin case.

Janome MC11000 - my bobbin case becomes dislodged


My bobbin case was jumping all the time...had it in for repairs and would bring it home and even though the tech had attached a test sew piece with different colored bobbin and top thread I could not get it to sew without the bobbin jumping. I thought that he had lied about that being sewn on this machine...finally, I found that you should start with plenty of thread in your hand when threading machine...so that once you feel it click into the tension...DO NOT PULL the thread, it pops it out of the tensioner...just loosely thread and hold tension with your thumb and forefinger while using the needle threader.

Thread keeps breaking


Have you checked any edge the thread might contact for knicks which should be files or sanded down? Also, I had to replace my bobbin case after a number of years as it had kind of stretched out and allowed my bobbin to pop around and consequently broke many threads.

Needle not picking up bottom thread. Whilst sewing thick fabric my needle broke.i replaced the needle but it was not picking up the stitches evenly. I put it away got it out today cleaned the bobbin race...


Remove the needle plate and the bobbin case.

Ensure that the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle clamp.

Set the machine for straight stitch, center needle position.

Slowly turn the handwheel in the normal sewing direction and observe the following hook timing setting:

When the needle reaches it's lowest point and travels up 3.5mm, the point of the hook should be directly behind the needle, or at least within 1 or 2mm.

Another view is as the hook passes the needle, it should pass the needle slightly above the eye of the needle.

If the timing looks good, use some alcohol on a bit of cloth to clean the hook, careful around the tip of the hook as it is very sharp.

If the hook timing is off, you will need to take it to a knowledgeable service person as there are several possible solutions and several other related adjustments which will need to be made.

Bobbin problems


Are you using a size "A" (Class 15) bobbin? If you are using pre-wounds and they are not this size... they will jump around alot. The size of an "L" is very similar, but they are not as tall (height off the table when laying flat on the round side... like when sitting in the bobbin case.) There are tricks to using the thinner bobbins... See if you have a "taller" size "A"/Class 15 and if that corrects the trouble. tjsews2008@gmail.com

Janome 9000


I have a Janome 9000, was sewing and broke needle, replaced and broke another. I didn't have machine threaded, took out bobbin and would sew a little and stop saying thread broke. I took off top plate and started machine again, sew a little and stop saying thread broke. So I took out bobbin case and sewed again and stopped repeating the message. Everything looks OK, bobbin case and top plate. I guess I want to know if the timing could be off or do you think it is the computer part of the machine...Should I take it to the Sewing Machine Shop??
