    I have the same problem. I've had my new Janome 15000 for a month and this is the second time it's done it. The first time it cleared immediately. This time I followed the instructions lowering and raising the needle and foot control then turning off / on the machine at least a dozen times. The machine is locked up and no buttons work. I got this message after seemingly doing nothing...I went to do the needle threader and then was going for the lock button. I am annoyed to think a $15000 machine needs repairs after a month! that's not acceptable.

Try lowering the pressure foot and the needle and then raise them
again and then restart the machine, and if that doen't clear the
error message then it's time to service the machine.

SOURCE: Janome 9000 willl not work when turned on

My Janome 9000 has always done that. I can prevent it by raising the needle when I first start the machine, getting it to sew quickly or raising the needle and letting the machine sit for a few minutes. I think my computer wants to warm up a minute. As you can see I.m not a technical person but it works for me.

SOURCE: Screen says that needle is in down position but it isn't

Look for an optical sensor that the needle mechanism blocks when down. It's a small plastic rectangular package with a slot through the middle that the needle blocks with a vane of some kind. This slot can pick up lint and dust which makes the machine think that the needle is down. Clean the slot with a vacuum and a fine needle. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pressure foot not raising

It is a presser foot. And a presser foot lever.

There is no lock - look to see if there is packing that has not been removed.

SOURCE: my sewing machine model no

First, I would make sure the embroidery unit is unplugged if you r trying to sew and check the bobbin winder to make sure it is off. Also look for thread in the guide, these machines are very sensitive and when the slightest bit of thread gets caught in the tension of the threading format, the computer will automatically turn on error message.

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

I have a Janome 1600P and the top thread keeos breaking


There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Diplays #8 to raise foot and needle and restart but then just displays same thing


My gut instict is to say that you may have a faulty presser foot position sensor. If this goes bad, even if the presser foot is raised, the machine thinks that it is down, no matter what. There are few other issues that could cause this problem, but they are all tied to faulty electronic components. I would earnestly suggest taking your machine in to a Janome dealer or another reputable sewing machine repair shop.

How do I fix the following problem with my Janome MC9000 sewing machine?


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

How do I turn corners with the overlock foot for a Janome 2049?


Sew to the end of the fabric, slowing right down to within a stitch or two of the end, manually turn wheel to complete last two stitches, stop, raise needle, raise presser foot, turn fabric so the back edge of the fabric is just under the needle, drop needle, drop presser foot and resume.
