Are you threading the bobbin in correctly? the right size thread and needle for the fabric?

Janome Harmony... | Answered on Oct 05, 2017

It is very possible that the timing is off, which often occurs with broken needles. A common symptom is that the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. Missed stitches aren't necessarily timing related--be sure to install brand needles often and use the correct needle for the fabric & thread you are using. Using the wrong needle will often cause skipped stitches.

Good evening to you and your sewing machine.
If you have the manual there is probably a certain program for doing the hem this way in the machine.
If you are a little nervous of using the machine to do the hem you could do it by hand with what was called in my younger days " invisible stitch" or you can practice on a piece of cloth in the machine, take a look here Magic Invisible Closure and here

Usually when you pull old bulb out on the base it is printed on there might have to look real hard

Look on the back of the machine behind the bobbin area. See if there is a slide switch. If not, your manual will tell you how to drop the feed dogs. If you can't drop them, you may have gotten a neede plate that will cover the feed dogs so you can do free motion embroidery and quilting.

Try resetting the bobbin. Also check if bobbin is over-wound. Open hatch and watch to see what is going on down there. See if threads are wound around base of bobbin.

If you remove the accessory box and look carefully behind it, you'll see a feed dog drop sliding button. Just slide the button over to the other position, take a few stitches, and voila, the feed dogs pop up again! Hope this helps...

if these suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be
checked for a timing problem
Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

Try a new needle. The needle may have gotten bent and that would cause those problems. Also, make sure your bobbin thread is threaded properly.
