Good Luck, hope you can find an answer, I have a Baby LOck ESE2.
Thankyou but its not easy getting information that is useful
I have a Janome 350E. It sewed perfectly until I changed my brand of bobbin thread. I was told Janome machines only like Janome bobbin thread, but it is rather expensive compared to other brands. For the same price as a 1,000m cone of Janome I bought a 10,000m cone of Barnyarns own make. I experimented and found that by loosening the bobbin screw just half a turn (like Undecided descibes) every thing now works fine.
I haven't even found where the screw is yet. Bit worried about pulling it apart...
There is no reference to this in the book or on the net which makes me wonder
I was hoping to see more posting for you, as I don't kow a thing about a Joanome 200e. *4U
Thankyou! Hopefully with a few of the suggestions & ideas I can test them with some success
up front i am relatively new to this and getting help myself
what i have been told is that you should not need to adjust the bobbin tension--and to leave it alone, and adjust only the top tension. that said, there is a screw (tiny) on the side of the bobbin case--lefty loosey, righty tighty-- a little goes a long ways--same as any machine.
and check out this link on tension
I have checked out the site you have suggested & downloaded the test file. My problem with the tension is I have to have it on 0 as tightening the tension makes it worse which is not correct but thankyou for your help
