You might look carefully at a noisy bobbin or one that gets noisy for no apparent reason, especially prewound, to make sure there isn’t teeny tiny thread end sticking out anywhere. I only buy Janome prewounds, which have worked well for me, but for some reason, I have found several having a teeny tiny thread sticking out partway through the bobbin thread being used up and usually near top or bottom of the bobbin.  It’s not a thread end, meaning that it’s not a new, separate length of thread or that it signifies a break in the continuous bobbin thread, so I don’t understand where they come from…guessing it’s some stray bit from a previous bobbin that was wound on the same winder…but even if the thread is so teeny tiny that it looks ‘harmless’ enough not to worry about, I trim it as far back toward the bobbin as possible with tiny pointed scissors and the noisy bobbin sound goes away…at least so far it has.

Cheryl, I am going to date myself...LOL  I learned to sew on a Singer treadle machine (actually 3) back when I was a literal toddler, so I don't even remember learning how to sew...just remember growing up sewing from a very, very young age, and designing and making my own clothes, patterns, etc. well into adulthood when I ran out of time in my day due to my sons' schedules and quit sewing for a time.  I am 67 now, so I have definitely wound a good share of bobbins, different kinds and shapes of bobbins with different kinds of winders...many different machines, including Kenmore made by Janome.  I didn't own a machine with anything but a straight (forward) stitch until the late 1970's. 

The bobbins I wind/have wound do not ever have a thread hanging off from initially threading the bobbin, but the Janome prewound bobbins actually are wound so full that the thread from winding the bobbin initially actually sticks out beyond the bobbin and the tiny thread that sticks out is unseen until part of the thread has been sewn and left the bobbin, and when that happens...when the little thread sticks out, the bobbin gets angry and starts yelling at me.  LOL  My bobbins are always wound to just inside the outer circumference of the physical plastic bobbin. 

I do mean the thread is 'fat' around the spindle on the prewound bobbins...if not held carefully to insert the bobbin into the bobbin case, thread can start to 'spiral' off the bobbin and it's a crazy mess if that happens.  Ask me how I know that...LOL

I prefer the prewound bobbins for my own convenience...not because I lack the ability to wind a proper bobbin...just because I've become lazy enough to enjoy simply opening up a bobbin case, grabbing a prewound bobbin, and sewing again immediately.  I do still wind bobbins, but only for color matching to the fabric/design as needed for sewing and embroidery.

I understand they (the Janome 'winders') cannot cut the initial thread flush with the outer circumference of the actual bobbin...because the thread isn't flush with the outer bobbin edge...it's 'pudgy' and just outside that outer plastic edge.  But, to keep my 15000 sewing without having to wind my own bobbins, I MUST clip that thread off the prewound Janome bobbin.  It's no biggie...I do it automatically without giving it much thought, but I just thought I would tell Kathy about the thread in case that might be a contributing factor to the issue she is having with her 500e.  The little thread doesn't 'look dangerous' but I still trim it off.

I appreciate your kind words...I hope you are having a great weekend.

Re: Thread cutter

Hi Gwen,

It sounds like your dealer made a few tweaks to your machine when he serviced it. Look in your settings and see if there is a place where you can add/subtract length of the cut for the thread. As for your thread cutter: there have been so many issues with the thread cutter that the technician might just automatically check it as it might have become very routine for him to do that, even though yours was working fine. I’ve taken my 15000 in many times to have the thread cutter “fixed” and it threaded 10 out of 10 for me and 0 out of 10 for me and that was immediately after I set it back up on my sewing table - “go figure”. Now I try it twice on any machine and if it doesn’t thread then I do the old way and that isn’t always easy as my eyes aren’t what they were when I started my sewing journey 50 some years ago when thread cutters weren’t even on a sewing machine and we were lucky to have a “zig zag” and a few decorative stitches IF we could afford such a machine.

I wouldn’t make a special trip to have those things adjusted but I sure would make it know that “what worked before” isn’t working now and will they honour the fix for “FREE” if you bring it in when it is convenient to you.

Re: About to toss this machine out the window!

Cat, A tiny bit of thread ALWAYS remains when you wind a bobbin. It is impossible to not have this IF one follows the exact directions of winding a bobbin and now there are 2 ways. On the new machines, in the videos I have you wind the thread on the bobbin counter clockwise and use the cutter blade under the bobbin to cut the excess thread off, or the old way of putting the thread through the little hole on the top of the bobbin, winding several rounds and cutting it off with a good small scissors. Either way there is always a wee bit of thread poking out. I try to cut it off as close as possible and that works for me. Maybe my many machines in the past 35+ years have just been good to me as I’ve not had problems. When I did have problems was if I didn’t remember to cut the thread and that was with my 11000 - don’t know what the memory lapse was there but …

Lynn, I don’t know if you are aware but the new Continental M7 has a yellow bobbin case and it is very different from the “yellow dot” for embroidery on the 15000, S9 and a few other embroidery machines made by Janome. It doesn’t have that little metal part on the top and has a hole through the side for a light to check for the remaining thread on the bobbin. If you by change got those bobbin cases, that might be the issue. You’ll have to check the part numbers on the Janome website. I can see why you would be confused as all your other bobbin cases seem to work just fine. I’m sure that from time to time a “bad batch” do get out for sale. I was told by our former Janome Educator who has been through the factory many times in Japan that there are very stringent controls and checks made before things leave the factory, but small parts may not get the same checks that the machines do.

I hope everything on this particular thread gets solved soon, as we seem to have tried almost everything imaginable to get us all up and running and happy again.

 I have noticed that occasionally the bobbin winds to the bottom and then somehow goes to the top and then evens out to a more consistent wind.  
 
Lyn,
I have noticed the bobbin winding this way on my MC10001. That is the way it always winds and I feel like that will affect the way the bobbin lets out thread or maybe the tension. I just lightly hold the thread just in front of the bobbin as the machine winds it and move it up and down as evenly as I can to wind the bobbin evenly. You might try that to see if it makes any difference. I do not have the issues described here but my machine is totally different so that may be why. 
I hope you and Kathy can figure out what is causing the bobbin to bounce around.

Thread cutter

William D Lawson
 

Well, I got my machine back from my dealer.  I took it in to be cleaned and checked out. I was not having any issues with it at all.  Just thought it needed a spa day.

Now when I use the thread cutter, the thread cuts so short that the needle comes unthreaded every time!  I did notice that the thread is very taut and it stretches out when cut and snaps up to unthread the needle. What do I do?  Should I loosen the top thread so the needle stays threaded? Or just not use it.   I never had this problem before. I loved my thread cutter.  I did retread the machine but it didn’t make a difference.

He also said he adjusted my needle threader. There was nothing wrong with my needle threader.  It was working just fine. Now it gets caught just a little bit while threading and makes a little click. 


My dealer is an hour away so I don’t want to make that trip if it is not necessary.  Thanks in advance for all your assistance,  
‘Gwen Lawson.

Jim I take your point about the race, I’ll make sure to check it again carefully.  I had the needle strike back in December, filed it immediately, checked for any damage.  Had no further problems until I installed the new bobbin case.  I have used the red case, and the blue case since as well, no problems, only the new yellow dot cases.  I put the old yellow dot back and again no problems.  If it was the race surely I would still have problems with any of the cases not just the new ones.  I’m wondering if there was a bad batch made.

Re: About to toss this machine out the window!

When you have a needle strike on the bobbin case, it frequently penetrates the case and hits the hook race supporting the case. This part is aluminum, so it's reasonably soft and can be damaged by a needle. In such case replacing the bobbin case does not solve the rattle, due to the fact that it is the hook race supporting the bobbin case that has the burr, pit, scratch, or other damage. The needle thread goes under the bobbin case to make a stitch. If there is anything that hinders smooth passage, it will pull up the bobbin case slightly. This creates a rattle, ticking, clicking, or other "wrong" sound. Service technicians are not trained to look for damage in that area. I was fixing machines for a few years, and did not realize it until I had some intractable problems that resisted diagnosis. The rim of the hook race is quite thin, and it takes very little damage to cause trouble. It cannot be made of more resilient material, since any iron-based metal would disrupt the pull of the magnet at the bottom of the case.

The way to detect hook race damage is to use a strong light, and magnification if possible, to inspect that narrow rim while slowly turning the hand wheel. Passing a piece of silk or nylon stocking around the rim will also snag on even small burrs. Once the damage is found, it can usually be fixed. At my request, eons ago, Janome America produced a polishing stone with the part #OILSTONE. It fits perfectly in the hook race, and can be used to buff out surface damage. You can't remove it with an emory board, which works on the bobbin case, and a file is also not very good. Before I had the Janome tool I would use industrial stones made for polishing. A medium fine grit and a lot of patience restored many a hook race. The ones that couldn't be saved were usually so damaged that the edges of the rim looked like a cheese grater. That comes from ignoring the problem, continuing to sew as if nothing happened, and then having even more needle strikes and damage, due to the hopping bobbin case.

It might help to slow the wind.  I was told by a very experienced man who does incredible embroidery that winding at half speed gives the best stitching.  I assumed my 15000 was preset at its optimum.  But I’m going to try slowing.  Another tip I got was when seating the bobbin for winding turn the bobbin until it clicks.  The wire on the spindle clicks into the groove in the top of the bobbin.  It does give a more even wind.  

There are a lot of people on various pages on fb all saying similar things about bouncing bobbins, and nobody in Janome seems to notice.  Perhaps there’s not enough emailing and posting on their pages to get their attention to the problem.  They deny all knowledge.

 I’m having similar problems on my 15000.  I had a needle strike on the yellow bobbin case, and although I had filed it down, I felt I should replace it, so,   I’ve purchased 2 new yellow dot cases.  The first from a dealer via ebay, this is a dealer I’ve use before for other items, both via EBay and their website.  I installed the case, with a full bobbin, one I wound myself using 80/2 wt thread.  Got to about half way through the bobbin and it started to make a noise, then it jumped enough to pop the bobbin cover, the case spun round and was jammed in the race.  It was jammed up and I had to ease the needle up, remove it, which then gave me more room to get the case out.  On closer look pieces of the case had been gouged out.  I put the old yellow case back in and did a test stitch both embroidery and sewing, all was fine, I checked the race for any damage, all seemed ok.  I purchased another case from Janome UK direct, installed it when it arrived got half way through the bobbin and it started to clatter.  Replaced it with my old one all fine. 

 

Contacted Janome UK, they asked for photos which I sent, and they say they can’t see anything wrong with either of the new cases.  The old case is fine, the new cases bounce and clatter.  I’m using Janome bobbins, I never buy anything else, I always buy the janome pack not loose ones.  

 

In the past I have used prewounds, they made a similar noise when they were half empty, and I think it is because they were slightly smaller than the Janome bobbins.  I did manage to get a quantity of Janome bobbins which worked a lot better (as you would expect).  I’m starting to come to the conclusion that this is more to do with the bobbin being half or under half full, the thread coming off is lifting the bobbin.  When it is full the weight of the thread is possibly holding it down, but when half or lower it’s lighter and possibly tighter, or uneven and is adding to the lift.  I have noticed that occasionally the bobbin winds to the bottom and then somehow goes to the top and then evens out to a more consistent wind.  Perhaps a slower wind is required to get a more consistent wind.  I know I can change the wind speed in settings, but on my other machine the speed is on the slider on the front of the machine which will limit the foot pedal speed as well.  I tend to wind bobbins in bulk, so I fill my embroidery bobbins 20 at a time at the top speed, I’ll try it slower.

 

For the record, the only bobbins I now use are Janome, I wind the bobbins myself and never use prewounds anymore. The non Janome prewounds are awful, and the bobbin thread is not good thread imho.  They tend to be very tightly wound so much so the thread curls once cut when it gets beyond the half way point and coils back, and then it’s difficult to pick up with the top thread.

Hi Kathy and everybody, 

Is it possible that you are ordering the wrong part number? Just a thought. 

I have had the same issue with the bouncing bobbin, but I then realized that I was using generic bobbins rather than Janome. That improved things a lot.

Also, could there be a problem with the bobbin winder tension? 
I have also noticed that sometimes, with Janome prewound bobbins, the bobbins are not wound properly, which changes the tension on the thread. Even with winding my own bobbins, I have noticed that the same thing can happen.

The 9400 is not an embroidery machine , and that was the first machine that I realized the newer bobbin cases were available
 My 9400 had to have the hook race replaced and so did my 15000. Both returned with the newer bobbin case with the number printed on the inside metal part.  Virginia.

I have been embroidering on Janome machines since 2004 when I started working at a Janome dealership.
I personally own the 12000 and 15000. I have embroidered on virtually every Janome machine beginning with the 9400 and have never encountered such a severely bouncing bobbin that causes the stitching problems that you’re getting, Kathy.
But I have seen that the Janome prewounds are often so overfilled and tightly wound that they can cause bad stitching.
Have you tried to rewind them onto your own bobbin?
We once had a 500e in class have a lot of noise we thought was coming from the bobbin and the bobbin thread looked bad. On close inspection it was only because the plate wasn’t screwed on tightly. Have you checked that?
There have only been two reasons that I have encountered bobbin issues on my own machines and it was these two things:
The white plastic piece under the bobbin case had a deep scratch. Once replaced the rattling bobbin was eliminated.
Using non Janome brand plastic bobbins, they are nominally okay for regular sewing but not for embroidering, I think because of the speed, so why bother trusting them at all?!!

re digitizing, auto digitizing in even the best of software programs is at best usually mediocre, and a good digitizer will rather use the tools in a program to make a higher quality design.
Looking at the pictures of your design it’s difficult to determine if you have a bad design or if you’re having a machine problem. I have come across designs that even though they don’t look too dense or badly digitized they will have places where the stitching just doesn’t run smoothly.
 I hope you find a solution to your stitching woes soon!
