My right needle (and sometimes the middle needle) is not locking with the looper thread at the start of stitches. Can’t even make a starter/hitch-hiker!
I’m using a Janome cpx2000. Elx705 SUK needles in 2 layers of soft shell fleece with tissue paper under it to assist movement through feed dogs. Diff4. Stitch length 4. Settings at 188.8.131.52. -Just like the guide suggests for heavyweight knits. It wont even catch in a single layer.
I changed settings to 4441 tight. SL4. DIFF0.6 but the right needle still wont catch. I can sew a perfect double row with left and middle needle alone.
I changed to a single layer of knit fabric and STILL the right needle wont catch the looper.
