Hello Emma,

Hope this helps.
When the feed dogs are lowered they will not go up with just the switch. Try this, move the feed dog switch to the up position, then turn the handwheel 1 complete rotation. Voila they should be up. Let me know if it is solved. Chris

Depends what was causing the noise. It could merely have been the build-up of lint and thread. However, something else could be the cause.

First: Install a brand new needle. A bent, damaged, old needle will frequently cause noise because it is striking something it should not. A dull needle will also make a thunking sound as it tries to penetrate the fabric. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing...a very inexpensive fix!

Also, be sure to following the oiling instructions (if any) in your manual. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil and apply only 1-2 drops in each spot as instructed.

If the top thread still fails to pick up the bobbin thread, it is likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

I would say your tension spring is shot on your tension assembly. replace it.

Make sure the feed dogs have not been dropped, ie for darning or free motion quilting. Also, make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually create a forward stitch.

If, as you have noted, this is a mechanical machine, my suspicion is that it has not been cleaned and oiled recently and possibly the old oil has solidified preventing the parts from moving.

You may not need to go to the extent of removing parts and soaking them in cleaner, but certainly cleaning the dust & lint and then oiling with a fresh good quality sewing machine oil may be the ticket to your resolution.

possably the timing is off take it to a repair shop

Janome Sewist... | Answered on Nov 07, 2015


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Bring it to a Pfaff certified service center. Might be a circuit board or transformer. Nothing you can fix yourself.

try another bobbin, that one might be warped
use a can of computer air in the bobbin area for lint
if the problem persists then the machine should be checked

Janome Sewist... | Answered on May 07, 2014


Check he tension on thread and on the bobbin. If you can see THE KNOT ON THE FACE OF MATERIAL then try loosening thread tension on top or tighten bobbin tension so stitch meets in the middle. May take a couple of tries to get it straight.
