Thank you, Jim for the video and information to prolong our machines.  I watched the YouTube video about winding bobbins which is exactly the way I wind a bobbin on my 15000 with one exception:  I was told when you put the bobbin on the winder, to turn it counter-clockwise until it clicks and then start winding your bobbin.  I’m not sure what this does, but I’ve done it every time.  Sharon

Your machine cost a lot of money, so you naturally want it to last as long as possible. To that end we offer this:

Questions about monofilament thread

J Fraker
 

I just finished reading the information about prolonging the life of machines.  There's a bit in there about the use of monofilament thread.  I use a lot of it.  I use the Superior Threads brand of polyester monofilament.  How do you feel about it?  I use it in both my longarm and my 12000 and other than it being difficult to see when I'm threading, I've never had any problems.  Is this brand okay to use or is there something better?

I am "a little old lady" and I can assure you that my 15000 is lucky if it is NOT used once a month!


Re: Embroidery Unit Hours 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

Sounds like sales talk - If it works that’s all that matters. But it sounds good. I’ll bet the machine was owned by a little old lady that only used it once a month!

oh....when i bought the machine i was told by dealer that they checked the embroidery unit and it had no hours on it....so that leaves me scratching my head....i was thinking that like the old machines ( i have an 11000 also) that maybe you pushed certain buttons to see how many hours it had been stitching in embroidery mode or something....


Re: Embroidery Unit Hours 15000

Jim Stutsman
 

The numbers on the Help screen are all that is available. They don't break out the hours on the embroidery unit, as it has no processor or memory inside it.

Is there a way for me to see the Embroidery Unit Hours?  On the "?" screen you can see machine hours and stitching hours. TIA


Re: Using a USB extension cord

Jim Stutsman
 

No. The square hole is the only one that supports direct connection. It expects anything plugged into the USB port to be a USB flash drive.


Re: Using a USB extension cord

Jim Stutsman
 

This is the right cable, but you're using it wrong. The cable that came with the machine STAYS plugged into the machine. The end of that cable that would normally go into the computer now goes into the female end of your new cable. Then the male end of the new cable goes into your computer.


Re: Error message on 11000

Try giving your machine a good cleaning especially in the bobbin area at times it is a small piece of thread in your cutting option. I had the same issue and it was foot pedal. You probably should take it into your dealer if this does not work.  Virginia.

Hi Jim - I just read your response to the 15000 error message regarding  "Raise Presser Foot and Needle Bar, then turn power on again."   I am getting this message periodically on my 11000.  If I turn the power off and then turn it back on, the message usually disappears and it is working ok again.  Does your advice follow the same path on the 11000?  Is there a procedure to find the sensor or will I have to take it back to the service person. I just had it serviced and I think I failed to mention this problem.

Thanks in advance for your advice!


Re: Resume setting 15000

Carol you have to go to your setting and after you set your stitch in favorite settings save it.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Resume setting 15000

I had the 12000 until recently, now have the 15000.  When I shut down the 12000 and turned it back on, there was a message asking if I wanted to resume last setting.  If I clicked OK, it went back to the last setting with all changes I had made to the width and length of the stitch.  If I 'Xd', it defaulted to straight stitch.  On the 15000, I made some changes when I used the HP plate and foot.  I reduced the default stitch length to 1.8 (from 2.4).  When I shut down the machine and started it up again, it automatically defaulted to that last stitch, but did not save the change in stitch length and did not ask if I wanted to resume that stitch.  Is there a way to make changes and have the machine resume the stitch with the changes I had made?
Thanks,

Can I use male to male and go into a USB port on my machine instead of the square end?

Thank you,

Re: Using a USB extension cord

This is what I bought. The cable that came with the machine (the one with a square end) doesn't fit into the female side. The description is:

INSTEN USB 2.0 Extension Cable - A Male to A Female M/F Extender Cord

INSTEN USB 2.0 Extension Cable - A Male to A Female M/F Extender Cord - 25 Feet(7.62 Meters), Black
Back to the drawing board. 
Thank you,

Re: Error message on 11000

Jim Stutsman
 

On the 11000 that message nearly always is due to the presser foot height sensor. Over time the knee lift linkage gets slightly out of adjustment and causes it to stick. You can sometimes get it to go away by lifting the presser foot and then “slamming” it down. It’s easy for a technician to fix it. Just have him or her adjust the knee lift as referenced in the service manual.


Re: Resume setting 15000

Those settings are only remembered when the “Favorite Stitch” option is turned on. It’s in the Settings for Ordinary Sewing.

Re: Photo album

Carole O'Mara
 

Thank you, Julia.  I visited their site and found a couple of designs that I like—single run and can use some sashing and border designs.  I’ve signed up for their emails, too.  I’ll look for their sales.  I’ll be interested to hear how your Star Edge to Edge using monofilament thread in top and bottom of machine.

Carol: The quilt I did in the Photos section called Acufil Quilting Project was showing how I set up the Acufil on my 12000 and was done back in 2014. I think when Jim transferred the files over to this site, it updated the dates to 2018. I can't remember where I got the pattern from to do that edge to edge since it was so long ago.
 
If your interested in doing this type of design, ie single run or no backstitching, I buy patterns now from a site called My Creative Stitches. which is a mom and daughter business.Great people to work with.
They do long arm type design but if you send them a note and tell them what machine you have and if they could convert a particular design on their site to jef format along with  what size of hoop you want to work in. You may have to make size adjustments but it works great for me. 
I'm working on one now that I got called Star Edge To Edge using monofilament thread top and bottom on my machine.  They have many designs and run sales quite often.
Hope that helps.
