If it's out of alignment then it will have to be fixed at a sewing machine repair shop

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

Hi
I can usually find manuals on Janome no problem but I can't access the one for Hello Kitty.
If you click on the specifications for any machine on the Janome site a PDF appears with a download manual button next to it. I can see the PDF but no download manual button.

This machine does look similar and I could get the link for a free manual, hope this helps. If not contact Janome.

How can I open the Janome Sewing Pretty with Hello Kitty machine to put in bobbin?


There is a removable tray on the front. Pull it to the left. This will expose the bobbin door. Lift the clip on the bobbin case to remove and replace it on the hook.

Why does the needle keeps getting stuck in the bobbin


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on. Take the bobbin and bobbin case out, take the needle plate (=throat plate) off the machine, and clean all the lint and bits of thread and other gunge out of there. Reassemble. Rethread with the presser foot up. Fetch up the bobbin thread and pull bobbin and top thread ends under and behind the presser foot. Then start each seam like this:
1. Fabric under the presser foot; lower needle with handwheel or needle up/down key into the beginning of the seam.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the ends of the bobbin and top thread behind the presser foot while you take the first 2-3 stitches
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally.

Handwheel stuck


most likely the bobbin thread is wound around the components.
remove the bobbin and check for a mass of thread cut it all away and remove every last bit then it should work

Janome hello kitty 525 won't feed fabric or needle does not move up and down. Everything seem to be thread correctly and clean.


Hi Thi: make sure the machine is not set to wind the bobbin. Turn the handwheel towards you and see if the needle moves. You may have a belt that has come off. Does the machine make noise like the motor is running when you press the foot control?

The underneath threat doesn't come up


double check the needle hasn't moved as if its not in the correct position it will not go low enough to pick up the bobbin thread.
Make sure you have threaded top properly and the bobbin in put in the right way, each machine has its own direction the bobbin thread should come out ( eg clockwise)

Fabric feeding, then jamming


Hi,
If you are getting loops on the bottom side of your fabric then it is a TOP tension problem, usually the thread is not between the tension discs.
Here is a simple check: Thread the upper path and stop short of the eye of the needle. Drop the presser foot. Now if you pull on the thread you should feel the drag of the tension discs. Increasing the tension setting should make it harder to pull. Now while your pulling raise the presser foot. All tension should be gone and the thread will pull thru easily.
I have worked on a few Hello Kitty machines and usually there is a single screw to remove the nose cover, exposing the needle bar and slack arm assembly. The slack arm does just that, it takes up the loop and the tension discs keep it from pulling more thread off the spool. Look for some thread wrapped up in the mechanism and clear it if you can.
This is were I find most of the problems
Good luck!

Thread tension?


I own this little gem of a machine. It definitely sews a perfect stitch. I'm assuming you own the green 3/4 size machine as denoted by your product number. The half size blue one pictured is incorrect.

Anyway, this machine sews a perfect stitch, due to the oscillating bobbin. Most sewing machines with rotary (drop in) bobbins don't have an easily accessible bobbin tension screw, which means your fabric is usually slightly puckered. Fiddling with only the upper tension helps very little. This frustrates me to no end for sewing long curtains, clothing side seams, etc. Wrong tension causes them to hang with puckers, making them look awful. With the Hello Kitty 3/4 size Janome, there is a screw on the bobbin case which allows you to adjust for every thread diameter perfectly. Always a perfect stitch, if you take the time to adjust this screw.

To adjust the bobbin for a perfect tension, load the bobbin into the bobbin case and thread it through the guide. Holding only the thread between two or three fingers, let the bobbin case dangle below. This will be slightly difficult, because the bobbin will want to fall out of the case. Don't worry, just don't move it around too much and it will stay in long enough for this test. If the metal bobbin case slowly drops lower, unwinding thread as it goes, the thread is too loose. Tighten the screw on the side of the bobbin case a little (about a quarter turn.)

If the bobbin case seems to be dangling firmly, give the thread a gentle tug, lifting up fairly quickly. If it doesn't release a couple of inches of thread, it's too tight, loosen the screw. You know the tension is perfect when a quick, light tug of the thread releases a couple of inches of thread.
