Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.
The automatic needle threader is stuck in the up position and the machine won't sew. I hear a clicking sound. How do I get the threader to lower. The instruction manual only tells how to raise the threader. I'm in the middle of a big project and need help!

Re: Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up...
You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.
Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of
the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the
machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.

You may have a thread stuck in your bobbin area. Remove your bobbin, brush gently with a clean soft brush to remove dust and/or thread bits, then gently wiggle your hand wheel back and forth, and brush again. This should free up your machine.
Thanks to floraq803, we have our 11000 working again. The needle threader was stuck in the down position. We turned off the machine, and turned the wheel (which controls where the needle is) until the needle threader bar was straight (approximately 1/2 way between the needle being all the way down and all the way up). Turned on the machine and the threader came back up again. Now back to sewing.
High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop
I have this machine also. Make sure your needle has been placed the right way around w/flat of back needle to back entry port. Also raise the needle up to the highest point it will go, sometime the alighmnet is off and if this doesn't work then you may need a service call.This machine is made by Janome for Kenmore, so most Janome parts will fit yours too.
