Unless you are a qualified service technician, take it to a technician for repair. Trying something yourself may cause more harm.

Why doesn't it sew?


Check to see if the bobbin case is in correctly. Jamming occurs when something isn't in machine properly. Try taking out the needle & manually turning the hand wheel slowly. It could be just a bent needle too.

My Janome magnolia is 3 years old. Last week I was sewing and everything jammed, needle went to side and broke. It was trying to run but couldn't. I took bobbin out and cleaned it, oiled everything, where...


Try the process of elimination. Take out the needle, take off the needle plate, take out the bobbin case. Run the machine. Does if run full speed? You might have to let the machine run for about 5 minutes. If it runs slow or you hear it slow down, you might have a bad connecting link between the needle bar and the main shaft counter weight. They seize up sometimes. (Shop Repair).
