Re: transfer files from stitch composer to USB stick

Having you USB attached to the machine look for de Emb folder, maybe your design is in there.

I'm having the same problem.  Are you talking about a thin wire-looking thing that is sort of a U shape?  If so, mine looks fine, but I still get that message occasionally.

I just had my needle threader jam in my 15000. I turned the machine on, changed the thread colour, locked and threaded the machine. I got to the needle hit the button and she jammed. When the message came on the screen to “Raise needle bar slowly, raise the presser foot, Power off/on” I did that, the machine did its song and dance that it does when turned on, and it got to raising the needle and then it whirred away for a second or two and was jammed. I did that a few times as I couldn’t really believe that it was messed up, before I gave up and went to bed - it was about that time of day. In the morning I tried again, phoned the dealer and took it right out to Humboldt for a service call. Apparently in the 15000 there is a little plastic piece that goes between things in the needle bar and it can jump out of it’s spot and then one is left with a repair bill. In my case it was a part of a regular service which my machine was due to have anyway. Brenda (our technician) showed me and my friend, whose machine is in the same state as mine was, what the problem was. However, if it happens it requires “a Brenda” to fix it as we can’t or shouldn’t do it on our own.

Now back to needles, The local technician - Eric and also Brenda at a dealer, in the next city 70 miles away, both use Schmetz needles when servicing our machines. They do however, set the machine up with a size 14 Schmetz needle and that might be some of the issue that we have when we get home. I tend to use #12’s mostly, as I don’t normally sew heavier fabrics. Brenda says she almost always sew with a #14 - even her quilts. I’ve used the threader for #11’s but I’m not sure if that is a good idea as our manual says NOT SMALLER THAN a 12. Jim also mentioned a few days ago to someone to ask to have their machine set for a #11, so it must be possible to do that or he wouldn’t have mentioned it. Unfortunately, I’d already got my machine home by the time I read that message. Brenda did make me thread the machine before leaving the shop and it worked just fine, so hopefully, I’ll be good for a while or forever as long as this machine sits in my sewing room. It is just too heavy to need to leave its home very often.

Happy sewing.

Janome 15000 light has a hum to it.

Cynthia Dickerson
 

Has anyone had the problem with a hum in one of the lights on the Janome 15,000?  Does anyone know if there is a way to make it stop?

Re: Needle Threader problem

Cynthia Dickerson
 

I also only use Janome or Organ needles which are Janome.  When I had a check up done on my sewing machine, the service man told me to bring the needles that I usually use.  He set my machine exactly for the organ needles, so I use nothing else and it sews like a dream and the needle threader works great!  This is Sew N Save in Westerville, Ohio.

I really appreciate the feedback. Nice to know it isn't "just me". Actually, I didn't have trouble with Schmetz either.

Re: Needle Threader problem

Seems every machine has its own quirks. Think I'll stay with the Janome needles and bobbins.

Re: Needle Threader problem

Thanks for the help. Looks like the hook is bent. My husband's mechanically inclined and has ordered a replacement part. Will try fixing it before taking it in. It must have been set for 11's because it always hit the mark.

Re: Needle Threader problem

To be honest with you I find the threaders on the Janome machines work the best with either Organ brand or Janome brand needles.  I find that when switching to another brand like Schmetz and Klasse the length of the needles are different and the threader seems to miss the hole. This I found with the 11,000. 7700 , 12000, 9400 and now my 15,000.  You can also check to be sure that the needle is high enough in the shaft and be sure to do needle up and down one time before trying to thread.  After finding out that nothing else works with most of my now and former machines I just stick to mostly Organ and my threader never misses.  

It might be just a minor adjustment by your dealer or repair person.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Needle Threader problem

In the process of changing to a stretch needle (Floriani Chrome) my threader hit the shaft and broke the needle. I was able to remove the broken tip and the threader continues to operate, but does not thread the needle. Is there any adjustment I can make or does this require a visit to the tech? Thanks for any help. Up until now the threader has never missed it's mark, and, of course, I'm sick about it.
I have the 15000.

Re: Needle Threader problem

Jim Stutsman
 

The 15000 threader works by pushing a tiny hook through the eye of the needle and using it to pull the thread through. What's most likely happened is that the hook hit the needle shaft and either bent or broke. With strong light and magnification you can probably see what state the hook is in, or if it is missing entirely. A technician can replace the hook and adjust it so it clears the eye both above and below. Ask to have it adjusted for a size 11 if possible. The eye on size 11 is a little smaller than 14. It's more fiddly work for the tech, but better for you since a threader that was adjusted to 14 can be damaged when trying to thread 11.

Hi everyone, I am from Mexico and my english is not good but for those who like hemstitching I would recommend the vintage singer fagoter attachment.
