I cannot get the stitching correct on my coverpro. Its new like one week old. I went through 3 thread rolls on this last week trying to get it right. I took it back to the dealer thinking there is an issue. She re-adjust everything to 6-6-4 for mid-lightweight fabric and seemed to have it ok. I thought this was too much for my type of fabric and that maybe there is an issue but I got home and tryed with my binder attachment and its still not right. Am I correct thinking that maybe this machine was not right from factory and that it should be replaced?

Make an appointment and take your project fabric, project thread, binder, and whatever else you're using to the dealer and see if they can make it work properly... while you are there watching and taking notes. You have to have the same exact scenario you've got at home. Give the dealer a few more chances with the machine before you ask for a replacement. Most states' lemon laws say after three failures to correct something, then action has to be taken. YMMV
Good luck!

I went through the same "dance" and did have the machine replaced, and finally went to the 900 and love it.

I have the 1000 and have never had problems that couldn't be fixed with adjusting the tensions. However, there is a giant thread here on the Janome cs and there were several people who had difficulties that were definitely due to having a lemon. I agree take your material etc and your thread and take it into your dealer.

I too have the 1000 and had some issues with the tension. I spent quite a bit of time messing with the tensions. Finally got them right and haven't had any problems since.

Some of these machines are lemons. I bought one 2nd hand, spent 2 years and a fistful of money (tune up, needles, etc). It skipped stitches constantly. I used it to trade in for a Babylock and never regretted it.

I'd like some more info. What exactly is not right? The looper? Are the needle threads not sitting right?
