Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
Hi, I was in the middle of sewing a garment using straight stitch, suddenly the needle shifted to the right as if it tried to sew zig zag... I stopped immediately as I knew the needle would break. I tried changing needles, re-thread, cleaned underneath the throat plate, nothing looks amiss, but the same thing happened again & again, I couldn't get pass the second stitch... What is wrong? I also switched off & re-stated the machine several times.

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

when this happens to me (the needle breaking) I make it a thing to do and that is to use a qtip with a bit of oil and clean the bobbin holder and then use canned air and blow out the lint from area and this may help you. You may have a tiny tiny piece of needle left in the holder and this will play havoc with any kind of sewing machine. I have suffered through it many times before I made this a practice when needle breaks

make sure the pattern selector is set for straight stitch first. If it is set correct then the machine may be "stuck" is zig zag mode. May need to be de greased and then re lubricated.
