Janome sewing machine can't get it to sew the thread isn't pulling the bobbin thread through

Install a brand new needle. If it still does not pull up the bobbin thread, then the machine is probably out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Why does the thread from cloging needle after several stiches?

I would think it is not chatching the bobbin thread or the tension is to lose.

4052 How do I take the plastic case off to service

Be careful if you have a two piece body machine because once you have taken screws out of the back there are plastic lugs on the inside of the casing that you have to locate, my advice is to oil all the parts that you can see or take it to a sewing machine shop

Needle keeps hitting bobbin case when trying to

If the needle is hitting at the low spot when its lowered, the needle is bent or not fully pushed up into the needle bar, could be timing of the needle bar as well.

Where do you oil this

Welcome to FixYa! on the list below is the steps to oil your sewing machine.

  1. Remove the screw from the top of the Janome face plate with a small flathead screwdriver. The face plate is on the top of the sewing machine directly above the needle.

  2. Pull the face plate up and away from the sewing machine gently.

  3. Face the sewing machine as if you were about to start sewing.

  4. Locate a small cylinder attached to the side of the sewing machine facing you that had been covered by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil to the top of this cylinder.

  5. Locate a small square that is directly above the needle of the machine, also previous hidden by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil directly above and below this square.

  6. Replace the face plate and tighten the screw.

  7. Open the hook cover of the sewing machine as if you were changing the bobbin. This area is located directly under the needle.

  8. Remove the bobbin case by grasping the lever on the case and gently pulling the case out from the machine.

  9. Remove the hook ring and the hook. These two parts are behind the bobbin case and should come out easily.

  10. Apply one drop of oil to the center of the hole the bobbin was removed from.

  11. Replace all of the parts you removed from the sewing machine.

Good luck

I have an old Janome Mystyle 30, which is still

Unfortunately Janome don't provide links to their user manuals, so the only option is to buy one. I cannot find any free examples elsewhere, but this supplier has what you need at a reasonable price. If you find that you cannot eventually get the tension correct, then your machine is worn or out of adjustment and will need servicing. A smooth running machine is vital for consistent tension, so make sure that you have cleaned out the lint from the mechanism and applied sewing machine oil as advised in the owners manual.

Hope that I've been of some assistance and that you quickly solve your tension teaser! Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Question edited for clarity. Question moved from Computers to Janome. There seems to be different versions, perhaps country versions USA and Australia. Some have 'New Home', some don't. There is a manual in the link. https://www.google.com/search?q=JANOME+NEW+HOME+MY+EXCEL+18W-MW3018 ..

I would like to know how the tensioner assembly parts fits together on an old Janome sewing machine please?

Unfortunately that is the serial number not the model number. The videos in the link might help, but all the parts schematics work on Model Numbers. https://www.google.com/search?q=janome+upper+tensioner+replacement+parts ..
