I just tried the regular HP foot using the fabric guide that I have never used before. It worked really nice and I can see how  the HP2 would really be nice! I think I will see about getting one.

Re: Thread problem? Photos

I use quality poly threads and, other than Glide, have not experienced shredding as mentioned. The Glide thread settled part through the reel. I do use a cotton or prewound matching colour (not Glide) in the bobbin. Changing needle size is a good tip. Is there a tension issue? Also try slower sewing speed and see if that helps.

If you aren't using one, try putting a thread net over the spool and it will even out the tension and prevent the thread catching against the spool base as it unwinds. You "may" need to adjust tension just slightly for this. 

To determine if it's really mechanical/physical or just that particular spool of thread, try another poly thread on sample fabric, batting and backing to see what happens. It can be devilishly difficult to figure out sometimes.

I did get one help request from someone who could not get WiFi to work at all, even with Janome's help. It turned out that she was using the picture in the 15000 manual to set up her machine. Specifically she used the picture on page 107 to set the IP of her machine to 192.168.0.1. That's probably the worst example Janome could have picked, because that IP is the address of a ROUTER, not a device. Doing that would cause all other devices on your network that tried to get an IP using DHCP to fail, because they would be trying to get the machine to act as a router. If the IP of your machine shows .1 at the end that's the problem. Just change it to use DHCP and it should work without shutting down everything else.

Yes the 12000 came with one and the 15000 has its own.  Both are a different size.

The plastic extension table,
I have one for the 12000, but it doesn't fit the 15000.
Is there one for the 15000?

I just ordered the 5.5 upgrade to version 5 from my dealer for $224.70 including tax.
My dealer is in Indiana.  Janome said they will not be supporting the upgrade.
Thanks to everyone who has talked about this.

Carole did you install the HL for the quilt maker or upgrade your existing HL. I had to contact Janome for a code to upgrade to the quilt maker HL

First - I had to reinstall HLSuite on the 15000 QuiltMaker and I think it erased all my HLS settings.  Now, when I open AcuFil the dimensions boxes are in mm. How do I set them to inches?  

Second - I am showing a WiFi signal on both computer and 15000, but when I try to SEND, it asks me to connect to USB.  I opened a dialog box and my options were USB or WiFi.  I selected WiFi and message said I had to connect to WiFi.  

Where am going wrong?  

TIA,

If you look in your manual it shows the table. If you purchased from a dealer you should have received it

It must be your provider. This is the first I have heard of this. Interesting.

There are some settings in the WiFi  unit itself that deal with allocation of bandwidth. I had a similar issue in that the first device logged in to access the WiFi that day basically inhibited other devices from getting access to them until I logged out of that first device.  I would check with the internet provider – there are some checks and adjustments they can do remotely to fix this issue.

I often have problems with WiFi on the 15000, rarely able to connect with the iPad.  Is your computer near your machine, I wonder sometimes if you’re too close it has problems.  I also think the 15000 is very greedy with the WiFi channel.  If I turn the WiFi on, on the machine other devices in the house can’t connect to the WiFi, I have to turn the WiFi off on the machine so that husbands Mac can get out onto the net or my iPad etc.  Normally our phones iPads and computers are all on the net, but 8nce the machines on it, the rest struggle to.

I had the same problem when I moved my sewing room downstairs. The WiFi signal worked perfectly when it was about 800 ft from the router, but once the 15000 was moved, I got the same message you’re getting.  I called my cable/Wi_Fi company and had them upgrade the box. It now works perfectly. Either that or try moving them closer together.

There is one for the 15000, I got mine included with the machine.

The thread is spooling off fine and I’m using Glide thread which is a 50 wt. in top and bobbin. Been using Glide for over a year with no problems until now.

I am Ruler template quilting so I can’t change the foot. I have to use the high sided ruler foot to do this.

Yes there is, in the UK it came with the machine, it’s needed as with the 12000 for the bigger hoops with embroidery.
