    Yes I had that problem. After removing the screw, grab the BOTTOM of the faceplate and it comes away easily.

You have to take off the cap to the screw on the side of the cover. It is just bellow the foot tension. and then unscrew the side. It will then come right off, you may have to tug a little. Then, you can take the bulb out and replace it.

I have been given janome 525s the material not feeding through the foot. Unless i pull material it wont move


Make sure the feed dogs have not been dropped, ie for darning or free motion quilting. Also, make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually create a forward stitch.

No knob to adjust presser foot pressure. Space between feed dogs & presser foot is too tight to pull a piece of fabric out with foot down. Diagonal seams get pushed out.


You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.

Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.

Problem with feed dogs and thread catching


Hello Emma,

Hope this helps.
When the feed dogs are lowered they will not go up with just the switch. Try this, move the feed dog switch to the up position, then turn the handwheel 1 complete rotation. Voila they should be up. Let me know if it is solved. Chris

Attaching quilting foot


Can tell you how this works on my sewing machines that have the snap-on feet.

You have to remove the adapter for the snap-ons and then the attach the darning/quilting foot with the screw that holds the adapter to the shaft.
