How does it handle going over fleece, and zippers?
This machine will sew fleece and zippers.
Is there a button to adjust speed?
Yes there is a slide button on the front of the machine which adjusts speed and top speed is pretty fast! Hope this helps.
is this a 2020 model?
The original order details lists 2020 "New", and I am not sure how to tell on the actual machine. I am very happy with it's function, since my old machine was a Kenmore Brother and needed to be replaced after 25 years.
How does this machine differ from the Janomme HD3000?
The 3160 is a computerized machine vs the HD3000 which is fully mechanical. This means there is a needle up/needle down button, thread cutting button, and start/stop button. The 3160 comes with a 1/4" foot and a walking foot, as well as an extension table and the HD3000 does not. Hope this helps.
does this machine have metal or plastic gears?
I ordered this machine but since have read it has bobbin issues that Janome is aware of. Is this true?
Since my eyesight it not what it used to be, the hole in the bobbin is a little small. But it certainly is a wonderful machine, I love it. My answer to this is just keep a lot of bobbins full.

Your machine needs assembly? Mine came fully assembled. Just plugged it in.
Broke after 2 uses, $600 piece of pure plastic garbage. No better than the $89 one I got for a child. So, there's that. Never got a response from Janome, it's in the garage awaiting the dump truck.
Does it come with a walking foot?
Yes, it is part of the included quilting attachment accessory kit. It is very well designed walking foot.
