SOURCE: Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC

These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.
good luck!

I had the same "problem" with my new machine. I called Janome's customer service and they told me the stitch length dial needs to be on S.S. I did that and it worked!

I can help you with the manual, but you need to provide a model number. "Memory Craft" is a designation used an many Janome models.

Janome Magnolia 7318 suddenly started making a lot of noise, sews a couple stitches then jams, bobbin thread tangles. It is clean, no lint or thread anywhere in the undercarriage.


Remove all the thread. Install a new needle. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Confirm it follows the correct thread path and the upper tension is set at the midway point.

If that doesn't resolve the issue, you may need to take it for service.

I have a a Janome 6260. The thread eVentually splits in half, then breaks. This problem is worse when I use decorative stitching


I'm going to guess on this one; if your stitches are even (no bunching or pulling), you might have a build up of thread somewhere in the machine. Take out the bobbin and, if possible, the bobbin casing and check for any tangled or loose threads. Second guess, check the feeder on top of the machine, thread may be working its way into and catching on that feeder... be very careful when threading through the feeder because thread will often catch. If neither of these 'fixes' work, might be time to take the machine in for a cleaning and tuneup.

Thread is tangling in the bobbin casing


Hello

The feed dogs should be in the highest position for regular sewing. If the feed dogs are not raised above the plate it will do this. With the machine unthreaded and no fabric.. run the machine to see if the feed dogs are moving and are working.

Always make sure you have about 3 inches of both threads before taking any stitches, and both threads are positioned directly behind the needle. ( this machine is fussy about this).

make sure you rethread it exactly as the owners manual shows

Change the needle

Change the thread

Take it in for service

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!


In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

I would try adjusting the tension on the machine - this sometimes causes the bobbin thread to jam while sewing. Re thread the entire machine including the top thread. Also it is recommended to use new thread as old thread can ball up after time. If no luck I would call the store you purchased the machine from.

There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.

Machine makes noises and tangles up then jams from the bobbin side I do not have a manual


The bobbin case,shuttle rack and hook,and or feed dog,are in need of cleaning and oiling. Thread,fabric fibers and dust collect during sewing.
