Re: Making adjustments to a Janome made Kenmore

In 24+ years of working on Janome machines, it was very rare to have to set needle bar height, needle to hook clearance or hook timing. The single biggest cause of problems, such as shredding, was burrs on the hook or hook race. Damage to the bobbin case also was a culprit. One item to check that is nearly always overlooked is the state of the white plastic base that the bobbin case sits on. Every stitch has to be pulled between that base and the bobbin case. If either is scratched or burred, shredding can happen. Those are the areas I always look at first.
