Re: Bobbin case without part numbers?

Lyn Quine
 

I asked Janome UK the same question, there’s two different numbers for the 15000, one is for the V2 15000 the other one is for the V3 Quiltmaker.  The upgraded machines use the V2 bobbin case.  But I have bought 2 for my upgraded machine both are the V2 case, both jump about so I’ve gone back to my original which I have filed down where it had a needle strike and it works ok.  I have double checked that I received the correct part number for my machine, they are, one was bought from a Janome dealer the second from Janome direct and they aren’t acknowledging that there could be a problem.  One of them (from the dealer) jumped and moved so much it twisted and jammed the machine and a deep groove has been carved in the case by the spring at the front of the bobbin race.

 Thank you Jim, but what if there is no number engraved in the bobbin case???

Even before retiring I found that the part numbers in the part number manuals did not always match up to what I had to order. As long as the case fits easily, and the bobbin thread sensor works smoothly, then the case should to.

The number engraved or printed in the bobbin case is very new - like less than 5 years is my guess. When I really noticed it was when I purchased my Continental M7 and thought - this is a good idea, why didn’t they do this sooner? The bobbin cases have been like those in the 15000 since the Janome 11000 came out and on all machines that have thread cutters. I can’t remember what the one on my 10000 looked like, but I do know that my Memory Craft 6000 had a different looking one. The Continental M7 has yet a different one because it has a laser light to check the amount of thread remaining on a bobbin. You weren’t sold a machine with an incorrect bobbin, just a machine that was made before the numbers were added to the bobbin case.

Happy sewing!

Re: New iPad

Jim Stutsman
 

There are two ways you can do this:
  1. If you made a backup of the old iPad you can restore it to the new one. That will reinstall all the apps, and data such as contacts, email addresses, etc.
  2. If you don't have a backup of the old one, make sure that the Apple ID you are using for the App Store is the same one you used when you purchased the app. Tap Settings -> your name -> Payments and Shipping.
If neither of those options work, tap this link: https://support.apple.com/apps

Bobbin case without part numbers?

Jayni Bloch
 

Hello Jim and Everyone,
I bought my 15k as a store model from a dealer and found that both the red and yellow dot bobbin cases have no part number engraved inside them. I looked online to see what happened if I order new bobbin cases and found that most stores do not show any part number inside the case at all.
Is this a new thing, or is it a cheap version? Also, How on earth am I going to distinguish the different cases on my different Janome machines. I own 3 and they all have different part numbers. Especially the M7 do not even operate if the wrong part is inserted.
Please help.
Thank you in advance.
Jayni Bloch


New iPad

Jim, 

I bought a new iPad.  I need to load My 15000 app. I am not using the old iPad since it will not connect to my machine. When I went to the app store it is requesting the charge. What do I need to do to transfer the app? I apologize if you have addressed this previously.


Re: White piece under bobbin case

Judy, I think I’d try in on the machine that “messes” up the most. That way if something goes wrong you can still sew on the others, because the one messed up might need the service technician anyway.

Re: Duplicate Janome workbooks

Cheryl Paul
 

Hi,

I have the My12000, My15000 and the Footbook Apps. All are wonderful and I use them as references all the time, even if I need to do something on my little 4120 QDC and can’t remember “how” to do something - most ofter it's the binder attachment that I want a refresher on, but there are a few others as well. I think that the Apps are wonderful and definitely I believe EVERYONE that owns a Janome should have the Footbook App because it is SO GOOD, but only if you want it and can afford it. The biggest thing is how you learn. I learn by seeing much better than reading the “how’s” of doing things. These videos are so wonderful, because most us have seen demonstrations and perhaps even gone home and tried them ONCE, thinking that when you needed it you’d remember how it worked. Low and behold the time comes when you need (want) to use it and your mind goes blank, you can’t even remember how to attach the thing to the machine - basic I know but it can happen. Seeing a video even if it isn’t for the exact machine you have can do wonders in refreshing your memory without calling you dealer for a new demonstration and it’s always on your phone, tablet or computer whenever you require assistance. Now as Faviola mentioned, if you can’t visualize anything but your machine screen and adapt to something different that shows in the video, you would be in trouble to rap your head around the concept. I’ve had so many Janome Machines in the last 15-20 years, that have had screens that I do sometimes have to get the instruction manual out to find a very specific task that I might want to do - ie: the page turn icon to scroll through things. I have 3 machines in my sewing room that I use and they are all different for these little things and I must say that I do struggle from time to time, until I realize that this is the S9 NOT the 15000 and so I need a few extra steps to get where I’m going and the stuff is at the bottom of the screen not the side. Those are the things that I struggle with from time to time.

So YES, Jim and Diane, I love your apps and would recommend them to everyone I know that owns Janome machines. Thank you so much for developing them and Diane for taking the time to demonstrate them - you folks are AWESOME!

Re: White piece under bobbin case

My white plastic thing was scratched on my 15k machine too.
It was always that way, I had purchased an "event" machine, so it was gently used.
I had to convince our service guy that I was pretty sure it was causing my bobbins to rattle!
He didn't believe me, but sold me the piece, my husband replaced it and yes!
Now the bobbins don't rattle! (ahem, unless I use a cheap non-Janome-bobbin, which I have a few of with prewound bobbin threads on.)
Which leads me to the ongoing discussions...only use true Janome bobbins, they are superior.

Subject: Re: [onlinesewing-janome] Bird nests created under the bobbin.
 
There are many possible causes, but these are the top 4:
  1. The needle thread comes out of the take-up lever, or was never securely in it to begin with. This is usually quite obvious.
  2. No tension on the needle thread. Normally this would only happen if something was stuck in the tension. It can usually be fixed by "flossing" the tension with a strip of fabric like denim.
  3. Burrs on the bobbin case, needle plate, presser foot, or hook race. Initially the burrs happen because a broken needle and/or bird nest. If not fixed, the problem will continue to happen, causing more damage.
  4. Designs with very short stitches using a needle or thread that is too large. Outline stitches are often only 1mm long. A size 14 needle makes a hole 1.4mm wide. That can lead to two stitches in the same hole, resulting in a loop that doesn't pull up. In no time a bird nest will form. This can also happen using a thread that is 40wt. For really short stitches 60wt is better.

Re: Diane's work book for the 12000

Jim Stutsman
 

I'm not sure where this "book" thread is coming from. We have NOT published a workbook for the 12000 or any other machine. We did have an app for the 12000 for iPad, NOT the Mac. Due to no longer selling it was removed from the App Store by Apple. 


Re: Diane's work book for the 12000

Jim Stutsman
 

Diane does not have a workbook for any machine. That's a Janome product that *may* be available through a Janome dealer. It's been a while, so I can't be sure.


Bird nests created under the bobbin.

Jim I am getting bird nests on my 12000 while trying to embroider. It seems like the threads get caught just on the outside of the bobbin holder. That's where I pull out the threads. Any ideas that I can do or do I have to take my machine in. Thanks! Cathy

My old Mac died and I hadn't saved the workbook on  icloud.  Is there any way I can load it on my new Mac?  Diane's book was so helpful!

How can I get the workbook for the 12000? I would be interested in the app also. Thank you! cnystul@...
