Question about Janome Sewing Machines
The stitch length varies from 1/16" to 1/2" while making a single stitch line. I've adjust the tension - it doesn't help. There's nothing in the manual to help with this problem. I use the machine for quilts, generally stitching on cotton fabric. I also clean and oil the machine daily as it gets a lot of use.
The machine is skipping stitches and is probably out of time. Change the needle, rethread the machine and try it again. If it still skips stitches, try lowering the needle by about 1/16 inch and see if it works better. If the timing is off you should take it to a technician for a complete service.
