Memory Craft 6500 code BM init error

Allegedly is a code for a blown thermal fuse.

Where is the fuse located? Where can it be purchased?

The local people are not very trustworthy for warranty repairs.

Thank You Much!

SOURCE: I cannot find out how

About all you can or should need to do is remove the bobbin case and clean the lint and stuff out from under it. There is a wick in the center of the hook( the part the bobbin case sits on). Do not mistake this for lint and pull it out. Put a few drops of sewing machine oil on it. For anything more the machine should probably go to a technician as it involves splitting the case and there are some hidden screws. The machine should be serviced once a year if you use it a lot or less often if you don't use it that much. In no event should you go more than 5 years without a professional service.

Remove the top cover by taking the two large screws and the small one under the handle, LHS.

Remove the left side cover. The hidden screw is a 2.5mm allen accessed through the vent.

Lay the machine on its back and remove the four large phillips screws on the bottom and the small screw for the side, paying extreme caution with respect to the embroidery arm.

CAREFULLY move the bottom to the left and out of the way.

Inside the body of the machine you will see a black box held in place by three or torx/slotted screws. Remove the screws and, as you slowly pull the box out MAKE NOTE OF WHICH WIRES PLUG IN WHERE.

SOURCE: I need a replacement power cord for my sewing

I can't see this cable for sale on the usual sewing part websites.

So I would suggest that you contact Janome head office in your country to see if this part is available.

If you are in the USA contact details are here

If you are in another country then start here and choose your country on the right of the page to then go to that Janome site and then search for "contact us".

Ring or send an email asking for price and availability, they should be able to help you.

Why would my Bernina 880, 10 months old, not boot up?

While the surge protector is an excellent thing to use, BERNINA sewing machines also have a set of fuses in the power supply. There is a chance that one of these fuses has blown. My recommendation would be to take your machine into your local BERNINA dealer to get it checked out. As long as you have checked the cord, the surge protector, changed plugs on both, and checked the circuit breaker in the house, it is probably an internal issue that is best fixed by a certified BERNINA technician.

You can find a nearby dealer, at the enclosed link or go to the store where you purchased your machine.

How do i take apart the Kenmore 19606 to fix the fuse?

The first time is a little difficult; but it get's easier every time. I found after mine blew its first fuse, it blew more and more often; then almost any time it got jammed; while sewing real heavy material; and when I tried to sew real fast. So might as well buy several fuses when you go to buy one. I had a hard time finding a fuse locally, until I just happened to call Radio Shack and they had them. There are usually 2 fuses, so check to see which one is blown and take it with you. Make sure you buy fuse that does not blow as easily -- think they called it a slow blowing fuse. Radio Shack helped me to buy the right one. I purchased a higher rating the last time and it seemed to do better -- but I could not find where this was recommended and I am no expert on fuses, so let Radio Shack advise you. Just do not buy a lower rated fuse.

Make sure you note where each screw goes back at, I didn't and had some screws left over the first time I finished. Take masking tape and write on it where the screw goes, then use that piece of tape to stick the screw to a piece of paper or aluminum foil. Trust me, it will help. Now how to to do this:

I didn't remove the top cover, I just loosened the screws enough to get the side panel off. I don't recommend taking the top off all the way, because my dimmer knob came lose when I took it all the way off. If you want to take the top off you can by removing the 2 large screws, plus the small one under the handle.

Remove the small screw on the bottom that screws into the right side. Remove the right cover, where the power plug is.

Lay the machine on its back and remove the screws on the bottom. Make sure when you take these screws out you do not move the embroidery arm; or you will have to adjust the feed dogs before it fits back together.

CAREFULLY move the bottom cover out of the way.

Inside the body of the machine you will see a black box held in place by three screws. Remove the screws and, as you slowly pull the box out. One of the wires on mine was not removable. One wire was real short and it was tricky to make sure I had it plugged back in when I put it back together. MAKE NOTE OF WHICH WIRES PLUG IN WHERE.

On the other side of the box, remove the two screws that hold the cover on.Inside, remove the two screws that hold the board. Be careful not to touch anything on the board

Looking into the machine from the right side (where the plug is) you will see two fuses. One will be blown. I used some real long needle nose pliers to take them out. Use the tweezers to replace with the new fuse and reassemble. Make sure it touches the metal on both sides or it will not work.

When refitting the base unit, make sure the feed dogs are in the right position -- this is what I was referring to when I said embroidery arm.

I didn't replace all my screws in the bottom until I made sure it worked. If it doesn't check the short wire where you took the box out; and check to make sure the fuses are in the slot correctly (these are some errors I made the first time.)

**ALSO DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN YOUR SCREWS. I did and mine got stripped out.

The local sewing shop wanted $120 to replace the fuse; which is about all you can get for the sewing machine if you try to sell it. I am a retired single 62 year old lady so if I can figure it out so can you. It took me almost an hour the first time, but now I can do it in 15 minutes. I still have my machine, but purchased a newer model and only use this one for straight easy sewing.

Good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

My machine shows an error number E1what is it

The error code 1 indicates the fuse on the A board has blown. The fuse should be replaced with a part number 000182177 fuse. The original fuse is a 2.5 amp fuse and the replacement fuse is 3.15 amps.
You should take the sewing machine to a Sears service center or a retail store for repair.

hi,when fuse blown out there's a possibility that internal wiring were also short circuited..that's why even you replace it with a new fuse in the plug still it will blew out because large current will flow within the circuit . It is much safer to have PCB check or if your expenses in having that PCB see by a technician is higher , then it is better to purchase a new one.It is much safer to use a warrantied PCB and at the same time it has a much longer life span.

Hi, My Bernina Artista 180 sewing machine stopped working last night - during a storm - and I would like to check the fuse before taking it in to be serviced. We have exposed the Mother board but can...

There are two fuses on the 'L'-print power-supply module - this is in a separate compartment on the back panel, secured by a single long screw. These are both glass fuses and you MUST use the correct type if one has blown. Unfortunately, I have had a couple of this family of machines that have been subjected to mains glitches during local storms and it has taken-out the secondary power-supply on the main processor board 'S'-Print, which requires a very expensive replacement of the whole board. Symptoms of this type of damage range from intermittent 're-booting' of the machine, to complete failure, usually identified by the backlight on the display still being on without any displayed data, but the sewing light is off.

E1-Error message is apparently the fuse were is


The E1 error message. This is due to the fuse having to be switched from the 2.5 amp to a 3.5 amp. they did not recall the machine because of the low cost $2.99.

The Fuse is Located on the Board itself.

I guess the Part Number for your model is 000182177.

You could Purchase that from :-

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Blown electrical board

If this is a new machine you still have a warranty.

Contact Brother with the date of purchase and what happened.

During our last storm my Bernina 170 just died. I had it on a surge protector, but it just doesn't turn on. While I love this machine, I also have a B 165, so I thought I would try my hand at fixing it...

If this is an older model, the power supply module is a little sensitive to mains spikes - I've had three that have suffered a similar fate and all have required replacement power-supplies - the switching transistor gets blown and this is a job only for the qualified service engineer. My suggestion, I'm afraid, is to have it checked-over by a service engineer. There is a glass fuse on the circuit board, but if blown, it's usually for a reason and 9 times out of 10, just replacing it results in a second blown fuse !!!

Fuse keeps blowing.

We just found the fuse!! You need several kinds of screwdrivers and loosen the bottom. Then the side piece has one screw that holds it on and we had trouble getting that off but eventually I just held it differently from my husband and it came off so easily. We finally got to the black plastic box that is held on the bottom with two screws and 3 clips of wires. Once we got that loose there were two more covers to take off until we finally found the two fuses! My husband is on his way to Radio Shack now to get a couple 3 amp fuses. It's obviously blown - so we trust this will work once we get all the screws back in the right place!
