Question about Janome Sewing Machines

2 Answers

I have a janome 8050 sewing machine. It has started making loose stiches underneath and making a noise. I have changed the needle, bobbin, thread, cleaned the bobbin area. It will not make any stiches at the present. It was sewing and just started sewing incorrectly.

Sometimes the thread does not go into the take up lever properly. It happened to me and the machine made a terrible noise.

The key to proper stitches is that tension on the bobbin must equal the tension on the upper thread spool as well. The bobbin has a tension screw that may have come loose or the thread is not properly in the tensioner. For example, the bobbin could be in backwards. Or the tension of the top could be too light and allowing the tension on the bottom to pull the thread down too much.
Open the bobbin tray and watch while you slowly rotate the hand control to see it make a stitch.
You will probably be able to figure out what is wrong.

My Janome 8050 bobbin case is jumping out of place. The thread is wrapping around the bobbin case and getting stuck, bunching up, and shutting down my sewing progress. It ties the needle up.


check for the retainer action of the bobbin case to see in there is a part broken off that holds the bobbin in the case or carrier
from what you describe , with the thread bunching up etc, I suspect that the needle thread tension is too loose and causing the problems
if so then the bunching and problems can be from the bunched thread pushing the bobbin out of position
take it in for a service and if necessary , repair

Bobbin case


Try these suggestions


1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed


2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide


3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case


4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever


5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads


6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged


7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem


8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Bobbin thread is jammin up after about 3 rotations of wheel on my janome 8077 - is this a timing problem?


try changing the needle
make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not over filled
make sure the bobbin is not damaged
it's very possible that the machine could be slightly out of time

I am having a problem with my Janome Decor Excel 5018. It was working fine, until the bobbin thread won't gather with the top thread. And the top thread is binding up underneath the fabric. Kim


try a new needle

rethread the machine top & bobbin, that way you make sure the thread is not caught anywhere

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted in the machine

clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread & lint

always keep a long thread tail of 3 to 5 inches long, & keep the tails pulled back behind the needle
before sewing

if none of these things help the problem,, then it may need to be serviced

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.


Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on www.sewing.about.com or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

My sewing machine is not working properly - i think i have loaded the bobbin correctly but after about 3 stiches the cotton all jams - what have i done wrong - it is not a new machine I have used it before...


put a new needle in the machine
clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
clean in the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
also rethread the machine, make sure you get every thread guide

Everything was fine and then there was a noise and the thread got all bunched up underneath. I oiled it and it happened again.

I think I've bent something!


when you have the foot down ready for sewing,the needle thread , pull on it slowly and make sure there is resistance through the top tension, if there isnt any then the tread will ball up underneath
