Re: Needle Threader problem

Jim Stutsman
 

This is not an issue of dust, or even living in Las Vegas. The broken thread sensor is controlled by a small rod that is pulled back and forth by the thread as you sew. If you open the door on the left end of the machine you can actually see it in the hole about halfway down. At the bottom of the thread path, where it makes the U-turn, there is a spring. Its purpose is to keep the thread taut as the needle comes up. If that spring is broken or stuck you can get false broken thread messages. If you turn the wheel through a few stitches with the door open you can watch to see if everything is moving correctly. If not, see your local dealer. Odds that it can be fixed are better than they are at the casinos!

Jim.. Good Morning.. I have a question I have a 12000 I keep getting a message that shows up that my thread is broken. Then I "X" out
of it and start again sometimes it will go for awhile then does it again. I have changed my thread and needle. 
Checked for dust there isn't anything what can I do? 
I live in Las Vegas, NV.
Thanks for your help
Barbara

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.

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.

Re: Needle Threader problem

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.

I have been researching and experimenting since I asked about Spanish hemstitch/fagotting. This is what I came up with. I hope the attached pictures will show.  I used both a 1/8" and 1/4" "stick".  The stitch I used was Heirloom 9. I was also able to put a straw on top of the stick to run a cord through.


Re: Hemstitching and/or fagotting

 

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.

I have an old Viking D1 and I am sure somewhere I have one of those forks... but have never used it nor even figured out what it was for. I was doing a little searching online and there isn't much I found about the fork but this seemed to be a quite good explanation of it. Maybe it will help you some.

Several weeks ago a few were asking about the Spanish Hemstitching foot, etc.  well, I found a tool for that made by Viking.  It is a heavy duty bar about 8" long as if folded in half. It's called a Hemstitching Fork.  If anyone has info on how to use I would be very grateful.  I checked Vikings website, found on pg 56 they have a Hemstitch Foot and give directions.  Actually you only need to get the "plates" which snap onto the stitchplate.  May or may not fit depending model, etc.  Hoping someone may know about the "Fork" I have, Claire S.
 


Re: Janome News Email?

Vikki Youngmeyer
 

Yes I paid for all the shipping. The return shipping was attached to the invoice sent to the shop. All invoices, correspondence and machine travel went to the shop, none came out of or went to my home address. I reimbursed the owner of the shop for that shipping expense. I'm saying that it cost me more to ship the machine to Janome using the store's UPS business account - UPS Ground than it did for Janome to ship it back to the shop via their business account UPS Ground. If you have to ship the machine check various options.

Vikkie,

I think you just paid for ALL of the shipping. I don’t think that Janome and probably many companies DO NOT pay for any of the shipping costs once the machine is out of warranty or if it needs going out of the dealer’s shop for repair. However, I don’t know this for sure, but it would be my guess.

Shipping is expensive - my kids own a business and that is a huge complaint they have in getting goods to their stores, the quilt shops I shop at also complain about shipping costs as well. It seems that nothing is free anymore.

Re: Error message installing Digitizer V5.5

Sue Sweet
 

Thank you Jim. I am however in Australia, not the UK and have tried quite a few times over a few days with exactly the same result. Armed with your information I will now contact Janome here and let them seek an answer for me. Thanks.

What's going on here is that Digitizer is sending a message to the Wilcom server in Australia to register your installation. This is done in a message using extended markup language (XML). Error code 500 is for "Internal server error", which means the problem happened inside their server. That could be due to the message getting mangled in transmission, though that is unlikely. It may be due to server maintenance taking place at the time. It could also be due to using Windows 8.1, which was never particularly great and has problems with quite a bit of software. To rule out a network error I would try it again on a normal workday (tomorrow in UK where you are). If the problem persists you'll need to contact Janome for assistance.

Thank you Jim yes I was trying to help someone and downloaded trusizer to see if it would help her as she didn’t have software.


Re: WAS Janome News Email?, NOW Shipping machines for repair

Kaye Lessard
 

I had to pay to ship as my machine was out of warranty/
I paid and shipped myself with insurance and it was shipped back to dealer and I paid them for repair and shipping
To ship back to me was about half what I paid to get it there!
Janome gets a discounted rate and does not insure them!! Dealer said they would just replace if something happened!!

Re: Janome V5.5 icon stitch label change

Jim Stutsman
 

Did you by chance install Wilcom True Sizer? One of the absurdities of Windows is that whatever software is installed LAST for a particular file type (e.g. JEF, PES, etc.) will take over as the icon provider for that file type. You can usually fix it by right-clicking on one of the co-opted icons and choosing "Open with". In the dialog that opens choose the correct software and make sure that the "Always open with this program" box is ticked. Reason #148,326 why I so hate Windows!
