Janome 5124 timing adjustment

Threaded View
I tried to sew a double layer of fleece the other day, and the machine
jammed.  Tried to sew some strapping yesterday, and it seems the
timing is off now.  Being newly unemployed, I'd like not to be
shelling out a lot of bucks to get the timing set on this thing
whenever it goes out (second time in 11 years, but, what the heck).

Can anyone tell me how to adjust the timing on this?  Or a source for
a manual.  I tried finding a manual online, but, when I drilled down
to the actual document, it said it was no longer available.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

First, put in a new needle and then compare it to:

Most of the "out of time" machines I see are either dirty, bad or backwards
needle, or misthreaded.

Put in a new needle the correct way and try it on some normal fabric. If it
sews then there is no timing problem just you asking to much from the
machine.
