Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
After lowering presser foot the error message is still on the screen. The machine refuses to sew!!
A few weeks ago the machine was running on after I stopped sewing, but it seemed to fix itself. Now this has happened.
What could the problem be?
Any help please, Thankyou
There is a presser foot pressure dial on the left end of the machine, make sure it is on 3 or higher.

Testimonial: "Thanks--Don't know how the wheel was moved, but that fixed the problem. Now if I could only find the owner's manual!! "
This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

If you have snap on presser feet sometimes they can wear very quickly on the snap on part or the gap at the snap on part is too wide due to either wear or manufacture, replacement is the only answer

First thing you'll need to do is switch the presser foot.
Your machine should have come with a specific button hole foot.
(might have an R on the bottom)
To snap off:
Raise the needle and presser foot.
Press the red button on the back of the foot holder
and the foot will drop.
To snap on:
Place the presser foot so the pin on the foot lies just
under the groove of the foot holder.
Lower the foot holder to lock the foot in place.
Select which buttonhole style you would like to stitch.
This can be done by selecting a mode (buttonholes are 06-08)
and then adjusting to the desired length and width.
After you do this, lower the presser foot and hold the foot pedal down.
The machine will automatically sew the buttonhole and stop when it is finished
All you'll need to do is just cut the thread after.
Hope you found this information helpful.
