Thread tension dial has come off - Janome Combi 10

Hi,

I've foolishly taken the tread tension dial off my machine, and now I can't get it back on!

I've included a picture of the parts that came off.

Thanks

    The tension knob came off (with all the other parts) and I don't know how to put it back together.

If you put a number in your picture like this
1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12

Its easy but you must do it exactly like what i say
A - put (1) into the handle so that the pitch goes in to the gear of the handle -make sure that (1) goes in to the handle like this shape 9
after instalation of this "check spring" , u need to bend twist it clockwise little bit so that u improvise the spring in its place (approximately 45 degree)
from now u need to hold the (1) with something so that doesnt move (screw driver or long needle )
B - (12) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (12) which is callled thread controler ( because im not familiar with terms so i explain- haha - it has two Rod, small and large Rod) small rod must go into the hole

c - (10) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (10) it goes through the handle - make sure its top hole goes into the black rod which comes out of the sweing machine - note that u must embed it in the manner that bigger peripheral put in the right hand side.

d - (5) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (5disk) goes through the handle
e - (6) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (6disk) goes through the handle
f - (11) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (11) goes through the handle
g - (9) while u hold the "check spring" with needle , u need to open up its legs so that number (9) goes through the handle - make sure its top half circle hole goes through the black rod which came out from the sewing machine.
h - (7) here you dont need to open the check spring needle . so release its leg and put the plastic male into the handle while males go in to the hole of (9)
I - (2)
J - (3)
K - (8)
ll - (4)
Done. Great Is The Lord

I would look for a dealer who has been working on machines for about 20 years and ask him to reassemble everything. I think it is going to be hard to find a tension assembly for this specialty New Home Janome Combi. It's not that hard to reassemble everything when all your parts are in your hand. Of course, once everything is reassembled your tension will need to be recalibrated.
Why did you disassemble this part? It's possible you may need a service to make the machine work properly and the dealer I described to you earlier should be considered. Talk to your friends and see how they have been treated by this dealer and if they were happy with the work that was done.

How do I clean thread tension plates ?


you can try cleaning them with thread or unwaxed dental floss
and maybe a can of computer air and if that doesn't help then it
would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see if the tension dial needs to be replaced.

I have looping underneath. Top stitch looks great.


top tension is too loose,check threading up and tension dial. should be on 4-6. read manual and if possible clean tension device. if it is accessible you turn dial to zero and "floss" between tension discs using selvage edge of clean piece of cotton fabric. you can moisten it with denatured alcohol if very dirty. thread sheds dye particles, especially black or cheaper threads. needs to be removed regularly to keep tension discs clean. turn back dial to 5 after and thread up again. often this will resolve the problem

Lower thread breaking on lower looper ( green code) It won't sew over seams breaks everytime I rethread it


has the cone of thread at the back got caught up? this sounds like your thread is being caught and not feeding freely through the tension guides. Check the thread cones are okay and that the thread is pulling freely off the most right hand cone (lower looper). Also this thread dial should be set to the same tension setting as the next dial to the left for the top looper. Other possibility is that the tension disc itself has become gummed up or dirty with thread lint or dirt. Turn thread dial to zero and clean between the discs be rubbing the selvage edge of a piece of fabric between the discs gently. Now return tension to 5 or normal setting and try again.

Tension dial on my sewing machine is not working


Hi, Liz. When you adjust your tension, be sure the pressure foot is down. The pressure foot needs to be up when you thread the machine so the thread will slip easily between the tension disks, but when you adjust the tension the disks have to be tight (pressure foot down).

There are other possibilities, but this is the best place to start running the problem down. Please let me know if this does the trick, ok, and if not, we can try something ele.


Happy Sewing

Top tread bird nesting.


When you say top thread nesting, I supose you mean that the thread is messed up at the top of the needle plate.
If so,
1st, either your bobbin thread is completely loose, or the bobbin thread is not held under the bobbin case spring,
or lint has been accumulated under the bobbin case spring.
2nd, the top thread is very tight,

or both.

Tension Problems with Janome DC3050


If your machine is binding. It sounds like you have a threading problem. Check your manual and rethread the machine. The A is for Automatic tension I would not change that. I would also notify your dealer and see if you have thread under the bobbin case. All sewing machines should be serviced each year.
