Hoop attachment

JANE MORELAND
 


I am trying to attach the F10 hoop to my 15000 for the first time. It seats into the hole just fine but the locking knob will not turn. All the other hoops work just fine. Is there a secret to this hoop or is there something wrong with it?

Re: SanDisk

Yes. It's not really necessary, since the machine puts the required folders on the first time it's plugged into the machine.

Can the SanDisk for my Janome 15000 be reformatted?


Re: Question for other HD9 owners

The machine is louder than my other Janome machines however the styrofoam should not be all beat up more than likely you got a used machine

Unfortunately there are some shady dealers out there I had a dealer try that with me with the hd9 and because I know Janome machines and how they're packed I knew it was a used machine I had to end up threatening the dealer letting them know that if my money wasn't refunded immediately I was going to report them to Janome to the Better Business Bureau and I was going to ask my credit card company to do a chargeback if they didn't do it

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Question for other HD9 owners
 
After several months of other distractions, I am finally getting to one of the projects that I bought my HD 9 for.  It seems to sew fine but am really surprised at how noisy it is.  It really seems to have a groaning noise as it sews, which is particularly noticeable at lower sewing speeds.  Checking the troubleshooting in the manual, I did clean and oil it, but the noise is still there.
 
Is this typical of this particular machine or do I need to get it in to my dealer while it is still under warranty?  I am slightly concerned because I had assumed it was a new-in-the-box machine but when I went to oil it, I discovered some lint buildup in the bobbin area and fuzzy red thread fibers in the bobbin case tension spring.  Also, the styrofoam in the box was really beat up (had to pick pieces of styrofoam out of crevices using tweezers).

Re: Auto buttonhole not working

This can happen if the buttonhole sensor is not pulled all the way down. However if you've had it for a while and it worked before, the sensor may need adjusting. This is a pretty simple procedure that your dealer should be able to do quickly.

Re: Memory Craft 11000 auto needle threader not working

The MC11000 does not have a lock function and the needle threader is also very different. Does your needle threader come down to the needle so that you can do your part with the thread? I used to sometimes need to coax the needle threader to enter the eye of the needle by gently pushing it forward - then everything worked after that.

Another thing could be that everything is not lined up so it is protesting. It might be worth your time to take it to your dealer and have the technician look at it. I just wish I had that threading system on my 15000, Skyline S9 and my Continental M7. My 11000 NEVER failed me but my new machines work less than half the time, no matter the brand or size of needle I use. The thread shouldn’t matter unless it is a thicker kind. Anything that is a 30 weight or higher should always thread.

Auto buttonhole not working

Mary Sanerkin
 

I have a Janome 8900 and recently when I use auto buttonhole foot (with a button inserted in the back of the foot) I noticed that when the needle goes up one side (Left)  it get stuck at the back and just keeps going side to side it won’t return back down the opposite side (right).  I think it may be the lever you have to bring down on the left to sit on the back of the foot.  When the foot meets the lever at the back it should prompt the machine to stitch down the other side.  But it isn’t doing it.  I experimented and ‘nudged’ the lever at the appropriate stage when it should have prompted the return phase of the buttonhole and it worked. So I guess I don’t know if there is an adjustment to the lever or another setting to fix this problem.   Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks. Mary

Actually my response about the lock button was more intended for Kathy, who was expressing frustration with the needle threader on her 500e.  It is a different design from the other machines and more sensitive to the position of the hoop.

Kathy,

Are you remembering to engage the lock function from the touch screen and drop the presser foot each time you are wanting to using the threader?  I have found that the hoop position on the MC500e/550e plays a big role in the ability of the threader to function.   Looking at it, you would think everything clears, but it doesn’t and you get what you describe, where it only goes part way down or part way around.  This is why when you engage the lock function from the touch screen and drop the presser foot to use the threader, it will often say to needs to move the hoop to thread the needle.

I don't know anything about a lock button on my 11000. I was having issues till I read or saw this in a video. I do the needle up and down to be sure it is all the way up. Then put the presser foot down. When I hit the threader button, it always comes down. For me, it works well only IF I lightly hold the thread tail to the left and under that white part - very lightly - till I see it is through the needle. If I don't do it, it doesn't get threaded.

When you press lock, the presser foot automatically goes down!

Just read this with interest, my 15000 did this once, and it was because the top thread was trapped underneath the cone on the stand, could your thread be caught up somewhere?  It might be out of sight like mine was.

Make sure you are in normal sewing mode to send files from computer over USB to the MC 12000 from the computer. If you do not have it in that mode it will not let you save it to the Janome Machine. You can also save to the USB by using this method while the USB stick is on the Machine.
