Question about Janome D'cor Excel Pro 5124 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I ran out of bobbin thread. I reloaded the bobbin. I replaced the bobbin in the exact same spot it always goes, threaded the thread according to the diagram as always, and now the bobbin does not move, not even to catch up the thread with the needle-thread. It just sits there looking stupid. I've now taken the whole damn apparatus apart, but I cannot figure out what *ever* made the bobbin move when it was working! The only previous symptom was an occasionally loud "chunka chunka" sound from the bobbin along with botched lower stitches. Any ideas?
The bobbin will not move unless the thread is being drawn up by the top thread. If the top thread is not bringing up the bobbin thread, but was doing so just fine before it ran out of thread, then most likely the needle has somehow been bent.It may not look bent, but change it anyway. If it was sewing fine before running out, most unlikely that the timing is out. If you removed the black plastic bobbin holder, it may not be seated correctly. Check it for ANY scratches or needle strikes as well. The slightest mark on it will cause dramas. Good luck!
