    I have the Janome 1600p QC. It will straight stitch without a problem. I just can't get a balanced stitch for free motion quilting. If I can get the bobbin thread to stop shwing through the top the needle thread is to loose. Bought a new bobbin case

How to wax a hardwood floor using a Electrolux floor cleaner and polisher

There are basically two models, but both are similar in waxing floors. I've just uploaded the manuals for each.
The instructions for the Floor Pro can be found on page 12 of the manual. The B-8, or 2101, is the same.
Clean the floor.
Prepare a spray bottle of wax solution.
Spray an area in front of you, and back away while "swinging" the shampooer from side to side. Repeat.until finished.
