Re: 15000 Thread Coming out of the Take-up Lever

I have had numerous problems with the thread coming out of the take up leaver, even using Jim’s method doesn’t always help. When I took it for a service in January the mechanic said he had done something to help with the problem ( I don’t know what). It did help for a while but recently it has started to happen again regularly.

I do use the looping technique that Jim Stutsman recommends and it happens less often but enough to be annoying.
So I was curious if this could be related to stitching speed thing or just a quirk of the 15000. 

Thank you,

My dealer replaced my takeup lever at my request. It hasn’t happened since.

I had the same issue with my 12000 when I first got it and there is an adjustment the mechanic can do to correct it
 Be sure with your 15000 that you are clearly making sure your thread in both top and bobbin are in the tensions correctly. Do you use a thread stand? That can help give your top thread a little longer path so it stays a little tighter and remember to use your yellow dot bobbin case for embroidery.

I had this problem when I first bought my machine (about 5 years ago now) and opened the cover to watch what was happening.  Finally, I pressed the shiny tab in ever so gently and the problem went away for me.  It's the tab you see that is secured by a screw and under the bar-like thing.  Hopefully the photo will make it clear as I have circled the piece but it looks very large so this may not work.  If not I can email the photo to those who want it.

Interesting, wonder what they did and why it would start up again? I’m going to check with the store’s tech to see if it’s something I can adjust without having to bring it in to them.
Hope your’s gets fixed soon too. 

Thanks,
Marsha

I gave it a little nudge but there’s not much flex in it. I’ll see if that helps. Thank you for the helpful photos. 

JEF + ?

Joyce Daniel
 

I was cleaning out/deleting some embroidery files and noticed several had a JEF + format. I have several Janome machines but all use the JEF format. What machines use this and why would Janome come up with a different format for some of it's machines? Inquiring minds really want to know.
Confused and blonde in Alaska.....Joyce

Re: JEF + ?

Jim Stutsman
 

The JEF+ format originated with the Memory Craft 11000. As the plus suggests, it was an extension to the JEF format. Janome's intent was to use JEF+ only for files saved from the machine itself. The extra data was to be used so you could edit a design, save it, then open it later and change the edits. Unfortunately they never shared anything about the format with anyone outside the company, so third-party companies like Embird had to reverse-engineer the format. They mistakenly believed that the JEF+ format was required for designs that used the then-new hoops larger than 5 x 7. Because they had to guess what the new fields in the JEF+ format were used for, the early conversions were hit and miss. Janome also used the JEF+ format to embed information for AcuFil quilting. With the 12000 and later models they switched to yet another format, JPX. Like JEF+, JPX is used for designs stored from the machine to USB, and also for AcuFil. The later versions of Janome's Digitizer also use JPX as the default export format. JPX has provision for storing an image that can be displayed on the machine screen behind the design. It's an interesting feature, but seldom used.

I have a Samsung computer. Would like to switch all my embroidery designs, to a laptop. I bought one today.
It has 4gb ram, 32 gb. But it has Windows 10 S.  Can this be used with my embroidery designs, 
and my 15000?   Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank You
Maureen

Re: Windows 10 S

Jim Stutsman
 

I usually recommend on finding out what you need before you buy the computer, but in this case I think you’ll be OK. It’s no powerhouse, but it should be fine with your Janome software.

Re: Windows 10 S

Virginia
 

It should be fine however where you only have 4gb of ram your software may take time to open.  Be sure to keep the laptop just for your sewing. Most computers are 64gb and have 8gb of ram so yours may be slow, but it should work.

I should have looked at the requirements, before purchaseing, but I was
looking for something cheap, and, on a plus note, it is the color of Rose.
  I don't have Janome software.  I am using Windows 7, 
with my 3DEmbroidery System, which is an old software.
Do you think my $200.00 laptop with Windows 10 S, Would
still work?

Thank You for your help.

Re: Windows 10 S

Jim Stutsman
 

The problem with cheap Windows laptops is that they are so underpowered that once you've booted Windows you've pretty much maxed it out. It's further complicated by the metric ton of "trial" software that suppliers paid the laptop maker to pre-install. $200 barely covers the cost of the screen and hard drive, so you don't have a lot to work with. I know nothing about the 3D Embroidery System, so I can't say whether it will work or not. Why not just try it? You've already lost $200, and if it doesn't work you can maybe return the computer.

Re: Windows 10 S

I am not familiar with that software.  It usually tells you the requirements for the software on the package.

I am running my 3D on windows 10.  Pfaff said I would have to upgrade but there are drivers out there and instructions.  I am wrangling twin grandsons at the moment but would have time in a week to send instructions if you need them.

Maureen,

I didn‘t follow all the replies to your posting, but an important info might be missing: You’re talking about „Windows 10 S“ which is the „Security“ edition of Windows, mostly for educational usage. As a consequence this version allows ONLY the installation of Microsoft App Store apps, and I‘m quite sure Janome‘s software is not available in the app store, but requires a legacy installation via download / CD and running a setup program.

Please double-check before making a decision...

Mattes

EDIT: It seems to be possible to switch off „S“ mode once, so desktop programs can be installed. But there‘s no way back ... Just google for „Windows 10 in S mode FAQ“ by Microsoft.
