Stepping motor error and the fix is not in the manual. Please help.

The machine makes a weird noise when the power is turned on. When I step on the peddle nothing happens. I can not find any help in the manual.

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 8000 Stepping Motor Error

Bear with me here...
When the Janome 8000 is turned on, one of the first things that it does is run the stepper motors to return the embroidery carriage back to its original position.
The computer in the Janome needs to know when the embroidery carriage is back in the correct position and to do so, it uses a sensor.
If the sensor fails, it does not know that the carriage is back in the correct position.
When the sensor fails, what happens is that the stepper motor keeps running even though the embroidery carriage is fully back, so what you hear is a horrible grinding sound. The grinding sound itself is nothing to worry about, actually it is good news, it means that the stepper motor is fine.
Janome in their infinite wisdom decided that whether the motor failed or the sensor failed, that they would simply say on the screen that the stepper motor failed.
I have repaired a machine with this problem, in my case it turned out that the sensor was okay, but someone had damaged the main circuit board, breaking the track from the sensor to the computer.
Unfortunately, I don't know if this sort of repair is something that the average repairman can take care of. I am an electronics engineer, so thats why it wasn't a problem for me.
I just thought some extra information on what is going on might give you a head start in getting some one to fix it for you.

SOURCE: Bernina Activa 131: buttonhole problem

There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: stepping motor error

Turn off the machine, pull the embroidery unit to the left a couple of inches and to the back a couple of inches. Don't force it if it won't go. Turn on the machine and see if it will reset. If does everything should be okay. If the problem is not solved, it's time for a trip to the Dealer.

Why riccar a303 sewing machine just stop running?


Difficult to advise. Can you operate it manually by turning the handwheel clockwise? Does the motor make noise when you step on the foot control but the needle does not move?

It appears to be a mechanical machine. If so, it could need a good cleaning and oiling. That is probably a good place to start. (Consult your owner's manual and use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil.) Could be a multiple of other things, ie loose/broken belt, foot control failure, carbon brushes or capacitor, electrical problem, motor problem... Probably best to take it in for service.

Step Motor Error...what does that mean


The stepper motor or motors control the needle position. If one is reporting an error that just unplugging the machine and leaving it off for 15 minutes won't fix, it's time for a repair shop.

I have a brand new Pfaff GrandQuilter 18.8 and am having a ton of trouble with the tension. Also it makes terrible banging noises. Is it a lemon?


For a brand new machine, your dealer should help you get it set up properly and give you lessons. Every machine is slightly different. You may just have something as simply as an ill-fitted bobbin case or wrong needle inserted. If it is making a "banging" noise, don't force it to sew. Walk through your instruction manual step-by-step for threading and call your dealer for more help.

JANOME MEMORYCRAFT 8000 STEPPING MOTOR ERROR


if you ever have this problem, it is because you have had something in the way of the embroidery arm at the back of the machine, so it has not been able to move freely; you'll get a terrible noise as the machine is unable to do what it wants, slips gears or something and then can't bring the arm to its home position. But fear not, i have found if you turn the machine off and gently push the arm back home to touch the machine as it is the start position, when you turn it on, it will work fine and no harm done. just make sure the arm can move freely before you start embroidery!
