Jim —

I hadn’t had my 15000 very long when it jammed and put a scratch on the white part under the bobbin.  I took it to the dealer (luckily 5 miles away) where he said he could just “buff it out.”  My machine is now 5 years old and I can still see the scratch where he supposedly buffed it out. I’m now wondering how many of the issues I’ve had over the years were caused by this scratch.  I personally have a love/hate relationship with it that may mostly be caused by a scratch!

Your technicians are probably concentrating on how the threader is engaging, and ignoring why the thread is breaking.

Help!

Hi Jim. First of all, thank you so much for all your wonderful apps. I have all of them, including your newest ThreadBook and I love them. I have a 15000 and a 6500 P and my problem today is with the 6500. I am trying to sew a jellyroll rug and I am having problems with the zigzag stitch continuously missing stitches on the right side. I will attach a photo showing you what is happening. 

I have changed my needle, my bobbin case, re-threaded, cleaned and restarted the machine, etc.   The 6500 is less than a year old. If I  sew the stitch on just regular thickness two pieces of cotton, there is no problem. However as soon as I have the thickness of the jellyroll rug which has the batting in the tube I get the missed stitches. I have tried switching from my regular zigzag foot to the walking foot and it still does exactly the same thing. I am at a loss for what to do.  Do you have any suggestions? Thanks again for all you do.

Jennifer

Thanks for replying so quickly Jim when I've told techs of the sequence I'm told one does not have any thing to do with the other...
The threader works fine if I'm just changing thread colors.... I will mention this to them Tuesday when I take it in (120kms)....
Really appreciate your input!

I have been experiencing a problem with my 15000 In that when I'm seeing along my thread breaks (not the problem) then when I rethread using the threader it brings threader down then jams.... I take the little motor off reseat the unit and I might be good to go for several retheads but will be sewing along get a snick (thread breaks) rethead then jam! I don't bother to put the two screws back in the decorative cover .... the local dealer techs have had it do it to them but they have no ideas what it is... they thought a good greasing of the shafts would fix it.... not. I asked them to cast a wider inquiry but they just say no answer back. has anyone had this problem and is there a fix?  My 15000 is upgraded but is about 6 years old.  I thought maybe it was a worn part as the part that slips out is metal slipping from a white plastic bracket... thanks for listening to my tale of woe....

Unfortunately the removal and replacement of the stitch plate did not work.  Off to the technician.  Hopefully not back to Janome.  Thanks for the suggestion.

The message telling you to raise the needle means the power-on self-test failed. There are many possible causes for that, which requires having the machine to diagnose. One thing you might try is to remove the needle plate, then replace it being sure to press down on the circle on the plate. If that doesn’t fix it you’ll need to take it to a technician.

Hello. I am new to this Janome Group. Since the shake-up in Yahoo Groups, you will probably be getting a lot of new members in the near future. I believe some of the Yahoo Groups will also be relocating here.  

I have 2 Janome machines; a sew-only Skyline S7 and the MC500e embroidery-only.  I also have 2 other "not Janome" machines that I keep at the ready on my sewing table. Each one of my machines excels in several things, and I tend to use all four of them for specific sewing/embroidery tasks. Machines like to be used and maintained. MY embroidery software is Embird.

I am looking forward to scrolling through the many topics and messages already on this Group, and adding a comment or question occasionally.   I have found lots of help on this type of platform. 

Happy stitching and sewing to all

I was cleaning out boxes and found this piece that goes with my Pfaff creative vision 5.1. I have no idea what it is. It doesn't look like a foot....  Anyone know what it is for?

The Apple App review process is getting faster. I submitted ThreadBook 1.2 this morning and it's in the store this afternoon. The highlights of this update are:
  • Yet more bug fixes, which hopefully only happened to me
  • More brands - 163 so far
  • Browsing can now show threads arranged by number or color
  • Numbered browse listings are now in proper numeric order
  • Browse listings can now be printed, saved as PDF, emailed, etc.
  • Question & Answer section has more content, including some "How to" videos
  • Updates to the Library will now be nearly instant if you are connected to iCloud, within 24 hours if you're not
We've received several submissions for missing threads that we could not use, because they were variegated threads. As it stands today, the app cannot match to variegated threads. However now that the initial bumps and bugs are dealt with I am beginning another, bigger update that will include the ability to match variegated threads, as well as add them to the Library.

Many, many thanks to all the early adopters and testers who patiently endured bugs and shortcomings, while providing us with precious feedback!

I see what you mean now.  I did purchase 2 free designs today in Acudesign and they auto saved there and in my drop box, however the one I had purchased previously is no longer in Acudesign and just the title is in my dropbox but no designs.  Perhaps there has to be an update coming.  I do have an Ipad update today for 13.1.2.  I am doing that now.  Perhaps that will help.  What version do you have.  I have the Ipad Pro.

I buy sweatshirts from jiffyshirts.com.  They carry all qualities from very inexpensive to better quality.  They ship very quickly.  There are so many price ranges that it’s sometimes hard to pick out which you want.
