Re: Tips to check automatic needle threader?

Lyn Quine
 

Sine i upgraded mine to a Quiltmaker and returned i to Janome for he upgraded threader pin and had it serviced at the same time, I do sometimes have problems threading, but have found that when that happens, if I hold the thread at the top firmly and pull it through, I don't let go until its in the threader and it is pulled in tight, then it will thread most times.  It gets problematic if i have a thread break when in embroidery mode, sometimes it doesnt matter what i do it wont thread.  Then after a couple of colour changes its fine again.......  until the next time

Do you think you may not have the needle in right. I find if I use Schmetz needles or a different brand than Organ or Janome brand my needle threader will not thread. I have to do them by hand.

Jim: Just tried your suggestions and it still won't work. 
When I lock the machine, thread and if I move the hand wheel ever so slightly counter clockwise, the light goes out on 
the needle threader button. If I move the hand wheel ever so slightly clockwise, it still does not thread.
Time to schedule an appt with the dealer. 
Thanks for the suggestions.

The post was regarding the screw in the needle clamp, NOT the one that attaches the foot. While the ends of the various needle clamp screws may vary, the actual threads (on the screw, not in the machine) are consistent across the Janome line.

Thanks I will check with him.  Since they all have the same thread it means one for a newer machine would work too.

Within the Janome brand all needle clamp screws have the same thread. Your dealer can probably order another screw, but only if Janome makes the screws available as a replacement part. If you happen to have an old yarn embroidery attachment from the 9000 era, that needle clamp screw might also work.

Speaking of parts. I’m missing the black cap which fits in the circle foot.  Can it be replaced.

Not true my 7700 had a different type than my 12000 and my 15000. In fact the screw on my 7700 bent my needle bar it was so hard to remove and attach the even feed.

Screw with Sliding Guide Foot

Pixey
 

Hi Jim,

I had previously purchased the 7mm Sliding Guide (SG) foot and changed out the needle screw with the one provided. I have now acquired a second Janome 6600P, but it has the original needle screw. Is there any way to buy an additional compatible needle screw so that I can use the sliding guide foot with either machine? Is this something my dealer is likely to have? I was not sure whether the needle screws are threaded differently on different machines.

Re: Tips to check automatic needle threader?

One thing to try is to turn the hand wheel slightly before hitting the threader button. A dealer friend of ours has found that sometimes the sensor for when the needle is all the way up gets off slightly, leading to the needle eye being out of position. Turning the wheel SLIGHTLY in one direction may allow it to thread. If one direction doesn't work, try the opposite. If that does get it working you can have your dealer adjust the sensor. It's a fairly simple adjustment that can be done in a short time.


Tips to check automatic needle threader?

juliadlf.ny@...
 

The automatic needle threader on my QuiltMaker 15000 has again stopped working.
Last summer it stopped working after I was doing multiple thread changes on a project.
Took it to the dealer and they ended up replacing the needle threader.  It has been working fine and now it again will not thread
the needle. I tried all my needles but none of them will work with the automatic threader. I know it isn't user error so before I lug this heavy machine
to the dealer, wondering if anyone has any tips for me to check as it seems odd that it would just stop working?
Thanks,
Julia


Re: Embroidery unit

Jim Stutsman
 

That film barrier will need to be replaced, but it shouldn't cost a lot. Your biggest problem will be whether your dealer has it in stock. In any case, the film cannot be saved. You can pull it out and cut it off with scissors in order to get the carriage to move freely. Once you've done that you can either turn it on to "park" the carriage or you can also push the piece that the hoop attaches to back toward the machine until you can unlatch the arm and fold it in.

The black film that's beneath the carriage arm has come out of the groove and I am unable to close the carriage arm and detach the unit.  Any suggestions of how to get the unit off. Please help.

I live in Melbourne south of Port St John. There is a wonderful quilt shop in Rockledge, The Quilt Place. We have a Wades Group of embroiders that meet there once a month. This group started about 20 years ago for Janome enthusiasts. Some of us still have Janomes, but many of us have migrated to other machines, all are welcome. We meet the second Monday of each month at 10:00 AM. Come join us.

Welcome to Florida.  I moved here a little over a year ago from Texas and love it. I live in Land O Lakes which is 2 hours from you on the other side of the state. I’m still learning where everything is. I have a Mano e 14000.

Hi Pam,

Welcome to Florida!   You will be about 20 minutes from the Quilt Place in Rockledge, Fl.  https://www.thequiltplace.com/
We have been in Fl for almost 3 years and I do not miss shoveling snow or the ice.  There are many quilt shops on the east coast and you will have fun exploring them all.  I cannot help with the Janome dealer because I am about 2 hours north and west of you.

Hi, Pam.  I am in Florida but north of Orlando, so not very familiar with places in the area you are moving to.  The "Row By Row Experience" should be coming out with a list/map of participating shops, so that may be a good start for you, even if you do not participate in "Row By Row" at all.  We end up traveling quite a bit to go to sewing shops...there is not a lot in this area...also we go to quilt shows in Daytona, Jacksonville, The Villages, etc.  The Jacksonville show is a big one, coming up in September, and Daytona...also big...and The Villages shows just happened not long ago...their websites list vendors that participate in their shows, so might be helpful in finding sewing shops.

Welcome.  I live in Lynn Haven which is about 30 miles west.  Unfortunately our Janome dealer was destroyed in the hurricane but said they are starting to rebuild this week.  Quilting by the Bay was also destroyed but is partly open.

Hi all, it’s Pam from Central NY, but moving to to Port St John Florida in April if all goes well. I was hoping my Florida sewing friends would know where the great sewing stores are in that area. We are excited, nervous, scared and more nervous! I know it will be fine, but letting go of 40 years plus is going to be hard. I am hoping there will be some great sewing stores to lead me on new adventures. We are selling most everything, but not my Janome 15000 or featherweights. Also taking my Koala quilt sewing table and squeezing it in a little room. Can’t wait to see what is available since most of my stash will go to my daughter. Thank you for any input about what might be in my new area. (Near Merritt island)
