Setting the Thread Cones or Spools of Thread
q r w e w
Use the 4 spool pins in the front row for sewing, and second row spool pins are for the standby spools. Use the rear most spool pin for bobbin winding. Felt rings of two sizes are provided to accommodate various types of spools of thread and thread cones. Use the large felt rings for large thread cones. For small thread cones or spools of thread, insert the small felt rings into the large rings. q Spool pin w Felt ring (large) e Felt ring (small) r Small spool of thread t Spool pin for bobbin winding
Setting the thread cone Attach the spool rests on the spool pins. Place the thread cones on the spool pins. Cover the thread cone with the spool net if the thread is shaky or kinky when sewing. If the net is too long for a spool, fold the net and place it on the spool. y Spool rest u Spool net
Setting the spool of thread Place the spool of thread on the spool pin, with the thread coming out from the left backside. Attach the spool cap and firmly press it against the spool. i Spool cap

c Insert the power supply plug into the properly grounded outlet. r Power supply plug t Wall outlet (grounded) v Turn the power switch on.
Grounding Instructions: This machine is equipped with a grounding cable and plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded. If a properly grounded outlet is not available, contact a qualified electrician to install the properly grounded outlet. Refer to page II for more instructions.
The MB-4 can be connected to the PC with the USB cable included as standard accessory. You need Digitizer MB for multi-needle software (optional item) to operate the machine via direct PC-link. Connecting the Machine and PC Start up the MB-4 and PC, and insert the type A USB connector in to the PC. Insert the type B USB connector into the USB port on the machine. q Type A USB connector w Type B USB connector
Transfer the embroidery pattern data files between the machine and PC by using optional Digitizer MB for multi-needle. After the data transfer is finished, the LCD screen will show the Ready to Sew mode display or return to the previous screen, depending on the setting you have made on Digitizer MB for multi-needle.
Do not turn the power switch off or disconnect the USB cable while the data transfer is in progress. Otherwise the data will be lost or the memory will be damaged. NOTE: Refer to instruction book of optional Digitizer MB for multi-needle for further details.
Cotton or spun rayon threads sizes 80 to 120 (74 to 100 dtex/2) are recommended for bobbin thread. Do not use poor quality prewound bobbins.
Use the DB x K5Q1-NY, size 11 needles (Janome part number 770811000).
To obtain the best quality embroidery, it is important to use stabilizers. Types of stabilizer Tear-away stabilizer: Use tear-away stabilizers for stable woven fabrics. Iron-on stabilizer: Fuse it to the wrong side of the fabrics with an iron. Cut-away stabilizer: Use cutaway stabilizers for knits and all kinds of unstable fabrics. Water soluble stabilizer: Use this stabilizer for cutwork or lace embroidery, and also for the right side of looped fabrics such as towelling to avoid loops coming through the embroidery. Sticky stabilizer: This stabilizer is a sticky paper used for securing a small fabric or work that cannot be secured in the hoop. It is also used for velvet and other napped fabric that would be permanently marked by the hoop. Usage: The stabilizer should be attached to the wrong side of fabric. More than one layer may be required. Felt or stable fabrics do not need to be stabilized and you may embroider directly on them. For firm fabrics, you may place a thin paper under the fabric. The non-adhesive type should be used when embroidering fabric, which cannot be ironed or for sections, which are difficult to iron. Cut the stabilizer larger than the embroidery hoop and set it on the hoop so that the entire piece is fastened within the hoop to prevent looseness of the fabric.
Adjusting the Thread Tension
Adjusting the needle thread tension Adjust the needle thread tension by turning the tension dial so that a small amount of the needle thread shows on the wrong side of the fabric. q Tension dial NOTE: If the thread kinks while stitching, turn the pre-tension dial clockwise slightly to eliminate kinks. w Pre-tension dial
Tension is too tight If the needle thread tension is too tight, the bobbin thread shows on the right side of the fabric. Reduce the tension by turning the tension dial to a lower number. e Bobbin thread Tension is too loose If the needle thread tension is too loose, the needle thread forms loops and the stitches look shaggy. Tighten the tension by turning the tension dial to a higher number.
Adjusting the bobbin thread tension To tighten the bobbin thread tension, turn the adjusting screw clockwise. To loosen the bobbin thread tension, turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise.
After the adjustment, test the tension by jerking the bobbin case with the thread end held by hand. The bobbin case should be falling slowly. NOTE: When adjusting the tension, turn the adjusting screw slightly since the adjustment is sensitive. q Adjusting screw
Replacing the Needle
Always make sure to turn the power off before replacing the needle. Checking the needle Check the needle regularly and replace it with new one if it is bent or dull. To check the straitness of the needle, place it onto something flat. The gap between the needle shaft and the flat surface should be consistent. q Gap
Do not use the bent or blunt needle. The bent needle can cause it to break.
Replacing the needle
Loosen the needle clamp screw with the small screwdriver included in the standard accessary. Pull the needle out from the needle clamp. w Small screwdriver e Needle clamp screw
Insert a new needle into the needle clamp with the long groove facing you. Push the needle up as far as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw securely with the screwdriver. r Long groove
NOTE: Use the DB x K5Q1-NY, size 11 needles (Janome part number 770811000).
