I don't know your experience with this machine so bear in mind.

Your "grinding" could be the machines internal slip clutch, but just guessing. Likely you can't make needle move up/down with handwheel or make a full or multiple turns of handweel ?

If yes, then check the bobbin area (hook and race) is not fouled with thread and/or fabric.

If bobbin area is clear, then try changing the stitch selector to see if its jammed as well.

What type of sewing were you doing when this occured?

Comment here and I'll assist further if need be.

Do you have the setting on zigzag? You can check this site to make sure you are placing the needle in correctly. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/514817/Janome-1600p-Series.html?page=16

I hope this helps.

Hello Pat

Refer to this link

to convert between Madeira and Janome embroidery thread. My experience so far is: Isacord conversion charts are very scant and provide a number of possible thread colour option for a particular thread colour of another brand.

Hopefully this chart will be a good start for your purpose.

Happy stitching

It wont turn either direction, not a smidgen? Did it jam while sewing? Can you remove bobbin? Will foot move up/down?

There several New Home models, can you identify the model number?

Please check handwheel clutch engaged (in) and bobbin winding spindle disengaged (all the way to the left).

I didn't find a 360 (free), but a 344 appears to be nearly identical. The only notable difference I see is the orientation of tension control selector. Everything else looks the same.

Make sure top tension is correct for the thread and material. Make sure that the bobbin is wound correctly. Not more than 80% thread. Make sure needle is threaded correctly and the needle is pushed all the way up, flat side at back. I have been sewing for years and I sometimes have not threaded my needle correctly so it?s easily done. :-)

I'm not sure how free motion plays into tension. If you were just sewing regular way with an all purpose foot and feed dogs, what you've described is extreme low top thread tension, regardless of tension selector setting. It's not zero tension as that tends to ball up underside of fabric and break the top thread.

Suggest switching back to an all purpose foot and dogs up, dont rethread or change bobbin or needle. Using scrap of same or similar fabric, see if you can get it to tension correctly with a simple straight stitch.

I suspect its a bobbin tension issue but they're extremely rare.

Please comment here with results.

I've found the manual for sale on line. One source is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-janome-and-newhome-532.aspx . Unfortunately, I don't see an option to download the manual from Janome's support site.

I hope this helps.
