Janome MC 9500 error message "Lower presser foot"

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

SOURCE: presser foot control -- Viking Husqvarna #1 sewing machine

There is a presser foot pressure dial on the left end of the machine, make sure it is on 3 or higher.

SOURCE: MC 11000 janome stops reading presser foot "p"

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.

SOURCE: Presser foot will not stay atached

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

Unfortunately you are probably not going to be able to fix this.
It needs a sensor adjusted (probably), or a component replaced.

How to sew buttonholes


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.

HOW DO I ATTACH PRESSER FOOT G TO MY MACHINE??


there are 2 type of presser bar foot clamps
one allows you to snap on the foot--raise & then lower the presser foot holder until the cut out is directly above the pin on the foot,,as you lower the presser foot holder the presser foot will automatically engage when put down on the pin area

the second is a shank & foot combined & there is a screw on the presser bar,,unscrew it some & put the shank up around the screw & retighten the screw

How do you set the tension on a janome 6260 sewing machine?


Refer to the manual.

You turn the tension knob - the higher the number the tighter the stitch.

First, thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control for the thread to properly enter.

Then, when you lower the presser foot, the tension control closes to the setting you have selected.

Quilting on Janome MC 4000


I have a MC4000 and a manual. To raise or drop the feed dog, remove the accessory box and feel at the back of the free arm there is a lever that will slide left or right to raise or lower the feed dog. I am not a quilter, but the manual says to use foot A (zigzag foot) and accessory L (quilter) which appears to be a guide. Cheers, Deb, Townsville, Australia
