I have been given an old Janome sewing machine. The cord looks unsafe and it doesn't have a presser foot. Is it worth getting parts for?

If, you go to www.sewingpartsonline.com , they sell cords etc for Janome, just know your model number and you probably can buy a manual too. They usually run about $35.00. Another suggestion, would be to take it to Sears sewing machine section and see if they have a Janome there, and will they let you try their cord. If, they will, you know that it is the problem and more than likely worth putting the money into it because you cannot buy a decent machine for that.

Janome dks 100 se - it keeps beeping when I press the foot pedal and I have to do this several times before it starts sewing. It doesn't beep when using the stop/start button and is sewing fine


Same machine and model and same problem. It’s really irritating. It’s not the bobbin as the screen flashes worth the foot pedal. I’ll look at the tension but given how often it beeps and on so many different projects with different thread and tension it seems to be a fault of some kind... searching for a fix...

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Where would i get a zipper foot for 40 year old janome sewing machine


fortunately manufacturers take a long time to change walking feet so go to a janome sewing machine repair shop and they may have one that covers a range of years

How can I find accessories for an old machine?


Sewing shops are loaded with this stuff. You can order online too. You'll need the make & model number. Do a little research, I think Kenmores are simply repackaged Singers.

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

Raising presser foot on Janime 2212


http://content.janome.com/userfiles/file/Inst%20book_%202212%28En_Sp_Fr%29.pdf

See p. 10 of the manual.

The presser foot lifter is on the right side of the leftmost part of the machine, towards the back of the machine. Press up to raise it.
