Identifying Janome sewing machine

Hope all you folks have a safe and happy xmas
Now for my problem
My wife has owned for 20 plus years, a Janome sewing machine with these
numbers and such. Made by Janome in Thailand 73103309, on the it has Appr No
The machine is still in good working order, but my wife needs a idea as to a
maintenance program to carry. At the moment, the machine sews but the thread
seems to double up and comes out to fast when sewing.
Can any one help with a manual of any description.
Thank you
Queensland, Australia

When was it taken in to the dealer for a good check-up and cleaning? Any machine need to go in for this routine work at least once-a-year or more often if it is used a lot. A dealer would be the best person to tell you the ways to solve this particular problem, and he/she could also set your wife up with a good maintenance plan for that type machine.

After years of usage this is a very good idea. Just the thorough cleaning and lube they provide may be all that is needed.

:Hi Peter
We are Janome Dealers in NSW.
Routine maintenance is sage advice from the previous respondents.
You have a Janome Model 360 as the "V" code is the indicator of this for Janome model identification.
Top Tension "normal" is set at 4
Try "flossing" with a scrap of clean cloth between the tension disks to remove any lint/thread caught there.
Remove the Needleplate, Bobbin Case and Hook..clean all around this bobbin area with small brush, finish with tissue moistened with methylated spirit (or rubbing alcohol for US readers) use a small tissue wrapped probe (jewellers screwdriver etc) to get into the tight corners.
Finding a Replacement Manual is difficult on the web, but they are still available as a Janome Spare Part,
Order Code IB-360 priced at $22-00 AUD (+ any p&h)

Hi. How do you ID a machine? My wife has a Janome sewing machine about 30years old. The only thing it has on it is New Home and a serial number 629021671. Any clues? We need to find a manual for it. Thanks.
