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: Bobbin winding message

Under the top cover, on the right hand side where the bobbin winder is, there is a small switch which is activated when the bobbin is being wound. You will need to remove the cover and reposition the switch (it's located towards the front of the machine) to make it work properly.

SOURCE: We need a repair manual

Janome stopped supplying the Back Light for the MC8000 some years ago. An enterprising fellow in Sydney, Australia does have some that he had manufactured especially to replace the Janome version.
What region do you live ?
I can give you the contact details and you can see about international freight etc. if applicable
As far as the Service Manual, they are given to Janome Trained Technicians and you will find it very difficult to persuade one to let you have a copy, it is their livelihood afterall.

SOURCE: jANOME MEMORYCRAFT 8000 STEPPING MOTOR

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!

Memory craft 8000 how do you take it apart to replace light


When your Memory Craft 8000 or MC 5700 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the LCD screen, or buy a new machine.
Janome no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available.
Full Access and Installation instructions are provided, so you can DIY or have someone else do the replacement for you.

Check this Link
Also includes advice, links & contacts to be able to Reset your screen and do a Self Diagnosis Routine to test your machine BEFORE you purchase a replacement LCD backlight for either the Janome MC 8000 or MC 5700, so you can check that there are no other troubles.
