hi there
im currently using my mini janome machine and ive had no probs with it
last night it was working fine and ive just gone to use it but for some reason is just not making any stitches, ive checked the bobbin and its all threaded right the other bit of threading is correct too i dont know what else to do with it, ive had a look on google but it seems other people with this prblem their questions are left unanswered so im totally frustrated big time now
does any one have any knowledge of tis kind of thing
any help much appreciated

tried putting in a new needle? you'd be surprised at how many things that fixes.

from my own experience on the weekend, don't just check the threads, rethread it. i checked mine a few times when the machine started skipping stitches and all was good. nothing worked and when i finally gave in and rethreaded the machine it fixed it. i have no idea why..   seriously though, try changing the needle. maybe there's something in the bobbin uptake that isn't working correctly. try having the bobbin case open and hand wind the machine a few times to see if it's all looking like it should. sorry i can't be more helpful Smiley

I agree completely! I once thought I'd messed up the timing on my machine (a fifty dollar fix!), and the repair guy said "Clean, oil and change the needle; If that doesn't work, bring it in." I changed the needle and EUREKA! It worked fine, but I cleaned and oiled it too, because it was due for some maintenance anyway.
