You need to do the following:

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.
If it still messes up ,remove the bobbin case and examine it for burrs or scratches. Remove them with and emery stick and fine steel wool.

My stitch length is tiny and will not change


When selecting a stich, there's a button with a triangle with one edge pointing down. There you can select Needle Position and Stitch Length. --PDF manual, page 23

The thread tension has no influence on the stitch length. It just adjusts, where needle thread and bobbin thread 'meet' inside the fabric. A too high tension means, the bobbin thread is pulled trough the fabric and can be seen on the upper (needle) side. A too low tension means, the bobbin thread is not pulled through the fabric and you can see the needle thread on the bobbin side.

I am having trouble with applique on a memory craft janome 4800.


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin case

The upper tension will not tighten on my Janome MC 8000. I have had it since '93 with no problems and all of a sudden when I was stitching the tension became loose on top (it was looping and making a mess...


Check for lint or thread in the top tension unit.....try "flossing" (as you would teeth) with a clean cloth.
Symptoms indicate top tension is being kept slightly open by debris.
Playing with the screw inside the cover on left of tension unit is not a great idea, it is designed for fine adjustment when tensioner is clean, so try to reset back to what it was before fiddling if you can remember how may turns you made.
If you continue to have problems, send a quick email (please mention the model and issue, we get a LOT of requests) and I shall see what else we can do to get you back on track.

Memory Craft 8000 LCD almost non-useable. Are replacement screens available?Is there any way to repair the display?


Yes, they can be replaced, we have them in stock. But first there are some questions about whether there are also issues with stitch selecting IN ADDITION to the dark screen, to ensure you would actually benefit from the repacement.

To find out, I can send you instructions to Reset the Touchscreen and also how to run the Self Test Routine, simply... Contact me. ALSO... Please just be sure to mention specifically what you need, as we do get quite a number of enquiries of various types each day.
This is a Link to LCD Replacement Screen to suit Janome MC 8000 and Janome MC 5700

The sewing advisor screen on a Janome 8000 is getting dim.


When your Memory Craft 8000 or MC 5700 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the LCD screen, or buy a new machine.
Janome no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available.


Full Access and Installation instructions are provided, so you can DIY or have someone else do the replacement for you.


Check this Link


Also includes advice, links & contacts to be able to Reset your screen and do a Self Diagnosis Routine to test your machine BEFORE you purchase a replacement LCD backlight for either the Janome MC 8000 or MC 5700, so you can check that there are no other troubles.
