Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Janome MC8000 Machine makes a grinding noise when turned on, and then I get a "stepping motor error". Machine will not sew. Husband is an engineer and will likely be able to repair the problem but we need to know where the stepping motor is located and how to fix it. Nothing is mentioned in my owners manual.

Hi again and welcome back to FixYa.

It is nice of you to remember. To your concern, possibilities are:

  • if the grinding noise is coming from the bobbin case area, then pls ensure that nothing is stuck/caught there, it would only take a small foreign object to trigger the problem; or
  • verify that the embroidery carriage in its parked/original position;
  • there would be a sensor/switch that tells the computer that the embroidery carriage is back. Pls check that if the carriage is back and see if you can check the sensor/switch;
  • worst case scenario is that the controller's circuit board is faulty. In some case, it could just be the wires or connection leading to the controller board.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa again. Happy Holidays.

Help with noise problem


Hi,
Any strange noise like excessive clicking, grinding, some weird sounds etc. actually indicate a failing hard drive.
Failing hard drives often show warning signs of their imminent demise. If you're lucky enough to see or hear one of these signs, stop what you're doing and immediately back up your data. They say prevention is better than cure so if your computer's hard disk is making some strange clicking sounds, BACK UP YOUR DATA IMMEDIATELY (As the drive is not operating smooth and may fail anytime).
After making backup of your important data on CD/DVD or External Drive, you may scan the drive for surface errors, format it and see if it works properly or not. It would be better if you seek professional assistance for examination of the disk.

Hard drives are mostly under warranty for at least one year. Claim warranty, if possible.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!
