Janome 9000 will not turn on

Power cord is OK. Both the main switch and the light switch won't power up.

    I solved my own problem after calling my local Janome dealer to find out where the fuses were located.
    These steps should help save you a repair bill and down time. This is for the Jamone 9000 only.
    If you can service the inside of your computer than this procedure should be easy.

    1. Unplug both the power and foot speed control cords and carefully lay the machine on its face.

    2. Remove the four large Phillips screws from the bottom assembly and lay the assembly down next to the main unit as the wire leads connecting the bottom assembly are just long enough to allow this.

    Note the black plastic power box held in place by three screws inside the main assembly. Two fuses are located inside this black box. Access to this black power board box is blocked by the metal rod which can't be removed so the side cover must be removed first to gain additional access to the black box.

    3. Three screws attach the side cover. Remove the two small Phillips screws; one at the top of the side cover under the carrying handle and the second at the bottom of the side cover. The third is a 3mm socket head cap screw hidden behind the center vent ribs of the side cover inside a plastic support pillar. A 3mm allen wrench just fits between the vent ribs, Once these three screws are removed care should still be taken to maneuver the side cover to disengage the plastic tabs along the front edge of the cover.

    4. Now you can remove the three screws to dismount the black box but it can't be removed until its three leads are unplugged. These are three 2-wire leads that plug into the black box from its top side. Carefully unplug these leads and the black box can be removed. The power switch assembly can be removed first to facilitate the black box removal.

    5. Remove the two screws attaching the black box cover. Remove the two screws retaining the
    power board inside the black box and you'll find the two fuses on that board. Replace the needed fuse(s) and reverse the procedure for reassembly.

SOURCE: Janome 9000 willl not work when turned on

My Janome 9000 has always done that. I can prevent it by raising the needle when I first start the machine, getting it to sew quickly or raising the needle and letting the machine sit for a few minutes. I think my computer wants to warm up a minute. As you can see I.m not a technical person but it works for me.

On the bottom of the machine is the base plate, remove it. You will see a black box (the transformer) that needs to be dismantled. Once inside you will see 2 fuses, one will be blown.
Replace the blown fuse, do not remove both fuses at the same time and get them confused.I bought replacements at Radio Shack. Good Luck

Your fuse is blowing because there is a bind in the machine. Did they service the machine when they replaced the fuse? If yes, it should be under warranty. Best guess is that it is tight from lack of lubrication, usually at the bushing nearest the hand wheel.

I'll bet it's the fuse. I had the same problem about a year ago.

I was embroidering on my janome 9000 it jammed and went dead and won't come back on!

Be sure that it's still plugged in and not on a plug in that is controlled by a switch that got accidentally turned off.

Other than that it is likely that a fuse got blown or the power supply died. In that case take it in for repair.

I have no power going to the machine. It's as if there is a blown fuse or something inside the machine. Does the Janome 9000 have a fuse inside the machine? If so where.

Used/new motherboard for MC 9000

This can be ordered from a Janome dealer only and he will have to order it from The Janome Company. They are not cheap so get the price first. It will be better if you can get him to install it for $70-80 dollars more because there may be some adjustments which need to be made when he finishes. It should also be cleaned and lubricated.That being said, I have a few questions for you.
When you plug the machine in and turn it on, does it light up at all? If the answer is no, then you need to check the lead cord.If the lead cord is okay,Then you need to check the fuse wich is located in a black box inside the bottom of the machine. Be sure you diagram the way the wires are before you disconnect them. Disassemble the black box and you will find 2 fuses in it. Usually only one is bad and it will be a 3.0 slow burn fuse. You will probably not find this at Radio Shack but you can find a 3.15 slow burn which works very well.. Be sure to reassemble everything the way it came apart. While you have the bottom of the machine off, blow it out wih air and lubricate every part that moves and rubs with a good quality sewing machine oil (not 3 in 1)

The first thing to be checked is the fuse in the bottom of the machine. Have a different dealer do this check. If the screen lights up it is not a burned out fuse. Find an Authorized Janome dealer that you trust and let him check this machine.He is the only one who can get circuit boards from Janome. The machine does have built in diagnostics for some problems.
