Sure there isn't a knob for speed that you moved by mistake. my machine has a speed control. also if there is a foot pedal, check it out.

actually e2 is the button hole lever being down. e6 means that the thread is tangled and to prevent the motor from overheating the machine automatically stops. All you have to do is re-thread the machine and take the bobbin out, untangle it and put it back in and sew. This usually works. If it keeps happening, there could be a few things wrong.

1. if you are using thick fabric your tension should be lower. normal tension is 5.

2. your machine is out of alignment. take it in to a service center, they can fix it in 5 minutes. to find a service center near you go to

3. your needle is old or bent and should be replaced.

4. Your needle is too thick, standard is 80. The thicker the fabric, the thicker the needle.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

SOURCE: Sewing machine sews only in reverse.

To all the people with this problem. What has happened is the reverse mechanism has stuck, this is often due to not being used for a while or the machine has not been oiled properly, which is hard to do for a user as you virtually have to remove all the covers.
If this particular machine has a screw on cover at the end where the handwheel is, remove it and look inside, you will see the mechanism, what you need to do is push it back out, then oil it but make sure you work the reverse button in and out while you oil it and check it works freely, then just refit the end cover.

Foot pedal slow +Janome 9700

There is an adjustment on the machine itself that controls how fast the machine is able to run. It is just about the center of the machine, right above the work surface of the machine. It has one arrow, two arrows and three arrows. When the slider is at the one arrow, it is at the slowest speed. You can move that back and forth depending on how fast you want your machine to run. I hope this helps.

Last year I changed the machine engine (PfaFF 1222 E). I noticed immediately that the machine sewed too slow and I thought it was a problem of the kind of engine the repairer had put into the machine. But...

If the machine did sew fast the the replacement motor, then the problem might be that the machine is getting gummed up somewhere. Pull off the top cover, remove the 5 screws from the bottom of the base plate, (4 large screws, 1 small screw), remove the base plate remove the 1 screw from the bottom of the free arm cover. Now you can see most of the moving parts. Spray a little WD 40 on all the areas that you see metal to metal rubbing together, both on the bottom side of the machine and the top side. Don't flood the machine and stay away from the motor area. Plug the machine in, lay it on it's back and run it full speed, or at least till it runs full speed. After you free it up, blow out the machine with compressed air, and reoil with tri flow all the areas again. Run the machine again, and you've started your own tail gate repair shop.

Speed is too fast when i use the pedal . I need to slow it down when sewing scallops on a quilt.

Put the pedal backwards so you are pressing on the big open end of the pedal. It gives you greater control. Practice a couple of times first because it feels awkward,
