As many of you may remember I had significant trouble with my new Janome 7700. It jammed so badly that it damaged my bobbin case. It went back to the dealers and I was so upset as I had just gone through months of trouble with a new Pfaff I had purchased (Pfaff came through and gave me a new one but I opted to go with Janome)
Great dealer BTW.
The machine is back, the bobbin case, and housing was completely replaced, the machine was timed.
I think the problem may have been the housing or something was not tight as it should have been.
But now it is. It is sewing beautifully. It is quieter and smoother, even the the thread cutter is quieter. I am so pleased.
I tested fmq. on it and it is doing a very good job. I think I will order the blue dot bobbin case and see if I can get a slightly better back side stitch. It looks a little flat. I like to keep my tension on auto if at all possible.
I experimented with needles, type and size, and all looks good while FM sewing.
Also tested buttonholes, satin, deco stitches sewing over thick to thin and all seems great.
Im so happy.
I love this machine again!

I am glad to hear it so often you hear of the problems but don't hear much after its working again. I want to upgrade to the 7700 and I am really hoping it works out all its issues befoe I get one.

Whew... I was holding my breath... I am sooooo happy this came to a positive resolution.

I have the blue bobbin case but really it is not necessary... you can probably buy a second regular case and loosen the tension on it slightly for less money. That is essentially what the blue case is anyway. But if you don't want to fiddle then the blue bobbin case works like a charm. I am happy I have it.

It is so good to hear that your 7700 is back and that the company and the dealer handled this well.Happy sewing for a long long time to come!

Sewing machines make me happy. I like sewing with them, cleaning them, petting them, gazing longingly at them.
