Janome 300E

I joined this group thinking it was something that could help me with my Janome 300E embroidery machines when I run into a problem. But I have noticed that the machines you are talking about are different models. Do you know if here is a group that focuses on the 300E?

Re: Auto threader for Janome 11k special edition

Jim Stutsman
 

The part you need is item 15 in the photo. We used to order batches of them. However at some point they stopped sending the individual plates and instead sent parts 14 & 15 already assembled. That made changing easier, since you can just pop it off by pressing down on it. You still have to loosen the screw to line up the hook with the needle eye either way. If you do find the plate by itself you'll need to remove the screws. Before doing that, put a piece of fabric over the arm of the machine to avoid the screws taking a dive down into it. It's a tedious process, but with care and patience you'll manage it. You'll most likely need to find a sympathetic Janome dealer to order the parts, which are inexpensive. Part numbers are listed below the picture.

Auto threader for Janome 11k special edition

Prudience Lewis
 

I know this has been addressed many times before, but I was not able to find any information on the Janome 11000 special edition concerning the threader.  All I would like to find out is what is the part so I can order it.  Most needle threaders are for the Janome 12000 and other Janome machines.  All of which use a different type of threader.  All I see is the needle threader plate available and this item does not look like the threader that would go on my machine.  Any information would help.  Can the threader be used like the Janome 12000 or other Janome threaders.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Prudience

Thank you. I was trying to figure something out for the GR hoop. Really wanted the larger quilting area. Hope you both are well. Still think of you every time I drive down Gaylord

I'll try that, thanks!

One thing you might try and that is to thread the machine using both parts at the thread stand - it means that you have to loop the thread around the top.  It just adds a little extra tension.  I’ve started doing this with ALL my sewing on this machine - not because of skipped stitches, but because a friend suggested this to me and another friend (we always sewed together as often as we could before COVID and we all have the M7).  I’m not sure that is necessary for everything, but you might find it helps.  I’m not a free motioner but I’ve read and been told that the direction you move the fabric can make a difference and moving things too quickly or not at a steady pace, but that is only hearsay as I don’t do this technique.

Re: Janome 6000 belt change

Jim Stutsman
 

Your best hope for the belt may be a grizzled dealer fighting against retirement. The 6000 goes back quite a ways - it was on its way out when we started in 1987. Janome typically does not keep parts forever on older models. For example, parts for the Memory Craft 8000, which debuted in 1990, were becoming unavailable well before we retired in 2011.

Skipped stitches with Janome M7

barbarabailey4gk@...
 

I am having skipped stitch issues when FM quilting on my new Janome M7. Piecing is fine, but when doing FM with the PD-H foot, it will quilt for about about 5 inches then a big skip occurs.  I've adjusted speed, tried quilting with and without foot pedal, changed thread spools (I use Aurifil), triple checked my threading of the machine and bobbin, rewound the bobbin, changed the needle twice (once Janome purple and once Superior 90/14), purchased a blue dot bobbin case, adjusted my presser foot height, placed a drop of oil on the bobbin case felt. Anyone else having a similar problem?


Janome 6000 belt change

Thanks for the add. I am a vintage sewing machine enthusiast  and tinkerer. I am looking for the service manual for a MC6000 and part number for the cogged belt. Is there anything complicated about changing the belt in one these that a person needs to be aware of? Thanks, JimAbCan

Thank you! I do have a new pedal ordered but my husband will be looking at these instructions and checking out my old one! I LOVE this group!


Bobbin speed

mah_jongg
 

Checked Janome's website for info on bobbin speed (rpms). All I found was that Janome bobbins should be wound on med speed. Being that each machine is different, my question is:

On machines with numbers for bobbin speed does: 1= 1000 rpm, 2= 2000 rpms, and so on?

Can't find this info in any of my books or online search. I would like to know what speed I'm winding my bobbins at. Different threads sometimes need a different speed and knowing this would be my guage.

Thanks


Re: MC15000 foot peddle error warning

About a year ago I had the foot pedal error...same deal...sew a few stitches then power cycle...repeat.  Took the 15000 to the dealer who had no trouble with the foot pedal but replaced it anyway.  Last week, I started getting an error that the cutter cannot be used but the machine still sews once the error is cleared from the display.  Here we go again.  Dealer is about 100 miles from here.  Ugh.  Would be nice if the foot pedal was more reliable.  Not sure if there is anything I can do to help it and haven't had time to unplug, etc., or call the dealer about the issue.  I rarely use the cutter, but would like everything to work even if I don't use all the bits and parts all the time.

I saved this file that I saw at one time with someone having trouble with their foot pedal.  Don't know if it will help, but before you purchase a new one, you might want to see if it is something that can be easily fixed.

Thank you all for your suggestions and your experiences with my issue. It’s always good to know I’m not the only one! Sounds like a new peddle is in the future!

Re: MC15000 foot peddle error warning

My 1500 was doing the same thing. After each time I would do the unplugging and turning off and on I would get a few stitches and it would stop with the error warning. I took it into my dealer and had to get a new power supply and foot peddle. I had to wait about 6 weeks because it took that long to get the parts from Janome. It works beautifully now.

But it was an expensive fix.
