So I have a Janome coverpro 900cpx. After sewing a couple of lines, I noticed after pulling out the fabric , there was a total of 7 threads attached. Basically each needle thread is pulling down an extra set of thread. When I go to remove the extra thread it's like it wasn't attached to anything--I hope this makes senses because I really need help--- THANK YOU!!!!!

May I suggest that you carefully re-thread the machine, check for dust-bunnies, and try again? Perhaps that'll help.

I stop with the needles in the top position, use an awl or something similar, lift the pressor foot. Run the awl under the foot, back to front and pull the needle threads forward, clip these about 1in from your fabric. THEN pull your fabric out of the machine. The under thread pulls the top threads to the back and locks them, and you should only have one thread attached to your garment to clip.

I had the same problem . I look at the diagram that is in the book You have to do some loops. Once on top and once on the bar and then put the thread threw the tension. Here's some pictures
the first one is cone to bar make sure you get the loop like this one in there.


The second picture is from the first loop to the bar make sure you get a loop here. Then put it through the tension.


Once you get it threaded up do a test. Make sure everything is through and threaded like it should be.
Hope this helps you.

In pulling out the fabric I just lift the foot up which loosen the tension and turn the wheel backwards just a bit this get the thread out of the looping chain.
pull back not forward. gently hold the stitches on the fabric so they don't pull out.

Yes I do much the same as Skae but slightly differently. I lift the presser foot up to release the tensions. I then use something like an awl or tweezers to get in behind the needle threads above the needle eyes pull the needle threads forward towards you until they're quite long. Keep the thread in place with your right hand still using the awl or tweezers, this stops the threads tangling in the next step. With your left hand gently pull the fabric away from the back of the presser foot until the needle threads have travelled back through the needle eyes and then you can take the awl away. You will notice that there are extra threads now coming out of the needle plate. Now turn the handwheel back away from you and with one more gentle pull the threads will release and separate. I find if I do the first step I have longer thread tails and no problem with the coverstitch unravelling on me.
