Question about Sewing Machines
Doesn't look like Janome lists that model in their manuals list.
You might try emailing support and asking.

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.

Hi, I downloaded (for free) a copy of the Envision 8006 (and 8007 supplement) manual from the Elna website 2 1/2 years ago. The Envision 8007 is the same as the Janome Memory Craft 5700. I can email you a copy of the manual.

SOURCE: JANOME MEMORY CRAFT 8000 MANUAL
I have an almost untouched Memory Craft 8000 that belonged to my mother-in-law. She was ill for a long time and it was not used. It has every conceivable gadget that goes with it, including primitive scanner, etc. The problem is, that somewhere in moving out her things, we lost the glass cover that goes over the bobbin where the needle enters,so I also have had the machine sitting in my sewing room for 7 years while I used my 30 year old Sears zig zag. Now I need an extra machine in Florida and I am wondering if you would know a good source for the glass bobbin cover. I also do not know it's exact name but do know it is not called a bobbin cover. Any info will be appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org
