Adjusting the Feed Dog Height on a Janome HD 3000?

I have a Janome HD 3000 and I need to adjust the height of the feed dog. I think there is an error in the service manual on the internet, because for the setscrew (A) there is no way to loosen it and I guess it confuses (A) and (B) in the diagram attached?

Could you let me know the correct procedure to avoid breaking everything.

Thank you.

Actually that is the correct screw to use to adjust the feed dog of the machine. If the screw is not moving it is because it is already so tight it can not be screwed in tighter at all. If this is the issue and you are not being able to adjust it correctly there could be a problem with the screw being too tight or that it is rusted in place and can not move. I would call the service department and talk with a rep there to ask for help. You may need to buy a new feed dog for the machine so you can adjust the foot on the machine so it feeds correctly for the material you are using.

It seems you are referring to the information on page 17 of the Janome HD 3000 Servicing Manual (not the regular manual) and this manual is mostly used by repair shops so the language will usually be short and not much in explanations.


You will have to follow the limited instructions to the letter and it clearly states that after completing numbers 1, 2, and 3 to loosen setscrew (A) and then nut (B). then follow through to finish.

If your setscrew (A) is not turning then it may need a little sewing machine oil loosen the grip. That is probably all you need to do.

Here is a link if you wish to contact support at Janome but very likely they will direct you to the Janome sewing store in your area.
