New Home Memory Craft 7000 won't run when pressing on foot contro

When I turn my Memory Craft 7000 machine on, it displays Err in stitch width window and 3 in stitch length window. When you press other stitch buttons, nothing changes in display window. When you press on foot control, machine does not even try to turn the wheel. It's like the lights are on but nobody's home. My mother got this machine at an estate sale. It has the books with it and is in a very nice cabinet. I just can't get it to run

    My dealer told me this means the A board is dead. It could be fixed but the parts are not available any more.

How do you change the default stitch length for the straight stitch.


A setting change while you are sewing should not happen. Sounds like you will have to take your machine in for service.

Seams pucker, I have increased and decreased the tension, I have changed the needle, I have lengthened and shorted the stitch width and length - none of this has helped. Any suggestions?


I dont have a fancy machine but any time Ive experienced this problem I do 1 of 2 things. First I check for bits of thread stuck inside till I removed the bobin case again and discovered the thread way underneath there. Second, if that didnt fix it I rewind my bobbin. Dont know if either would work in your situation. Good Luck.

Sewing a topstitch


Top stitching is usually done with straight stitch, ie stitch width on zero and stitch length on 2.5 but it depends on the application and the effect you are trying to get. Normal top stitch is where you might be stitching a facing down on the outside of a neckline, so you might want to stitch about 5mm away from the edge of the fabric. Always stitch from the outside of the garment, the finished side so you can turn on corners and control the fabric. If you have a clear pressure foot, then this will make watching the stitching easier. Not sure what your problem is with this technique so feel free to add more in comments if I've missed something.

My Elna SP suddenly stopped making the normal stitches regardless of whether I turn the stitch guide to "normal," "zigzag," or "overcast" mode.


Have you also turned the stitch width lever to 3 or 4 to form a swing needle type stitch?

Is this a Lotus SP or a Star Series SP? They should both have a stitch selector, a stitch width dial and a stitch length dial. Stitch width usually 3 or 4 and length usually at least 2 for a zig zag or overcast stitch. Also check the needle position dial, have you perhaps moved this off centre and not moved it back?

What settings for doing zig zag for satin stitch around applique. I have used 3.5 width and 0.2 length but the fabric has a tendancy to pucker and the stitches sometimes bunch


It depends on a couple of things. Depending on the fabric you're using you might want to use a stabilizer like an iron on tear away. If the stitches are bunching the stitch length might be to tight. Try going to 0.3. if the stabilizer doesn't work. With the stabilizer on, it will keep the fabric firmer so it won't pucker. Make sure you have the decorative stitching foot on the machine with the little indentation for the satin stitch to ride in. If you have the wrong foot on, this will cause bunching too. Let me know if this helps.

What are the settings for regular sewing, I do not have a manual. It has 3 knobs on the front and 1 on top? This might have something to do with my problems.


The three front dials are as follows....left to right-Stitch width, type of stitch, and stitch length. The dial on the top adjust the top tension.

For straight stitch you want 0 stitch width, straight stitch, 3 for stitch length.

For zig zag you want turn your stitch width to how wide you want the zig zag, choose zig zag stitch, and choose how close you want the stitches to be on the stitch length dial. Practice on a piece of fabric. Usually for zig zag you will want to loosen your top tension a little bit.

Have a 1970's elna su supermatic but cams don't work


There are two types of discs - single and double.
For the thinner single discs do as follows:
1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the single disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch length or width you wish. I usually try "3" for the width and 1/2 for the length to start.

For the thicker double discs do as follows:

1.Turn stitch width knob to "0"
2. Turn stitch length knob to "0"
3. Insert the double disc
4. Turn the top selector to "A"
5. Make sure the needle selector is in the centered position.
6. You may now choose any stitch width.
7. The stitch length must be put on "A" - this is the difference between the single and double discs!
I hope this helps!

Janome Memory Craft 7000 Sewing Machine- When I turn the machine on it moves the needle position slightly and message comes up Err 4, then it freezes. Any clues ????


My Memory Craft 7000 sometimes does the same thing, if it's very cold. Try warming it up by placing it near a heat source, a vent or a floor heater, for a few minutes. Then it works perfectly.
I've used these machines for over 20 years now, and they're my favorite!

If this doesn't solve your problem, you need to take it in for servicing.

They are work horses, but they do need their maintenance from time to time.

I hope this helps you.

Changing stitches on a White 1418 sewing machine...


I have a White 1418. Here's how you do it:

1. Attach the buttonhole presser foot (should have come with your machine) and place the fabric underneath.
2. Set the stitch length knob to 0, the zigzag width knob to 5, and set the needle position to center. Sew 3-5 stitches.
3.Change the stitch length to 0.5, the zigzag width to 2, and the needle position to left. Sew to the entire length of your buttonhole.
4.Set stitch length knob to 0, zigzag width knob to 5, and needle position to center and sew about 3-5 stitches
5. Set the stitch length knob to 0.5, zigzag width to 2, and set needle position to the right. Pressing the R button (reverse button), sew up to the top stitches.
6. Remove the fabric and open the button hole with a button hole cutter.

Sounds complicated, but it's really easy. I love this machine, you just have to know how to use it!
