Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
There are 2 stepper motors, in this machine. One is for the embroidery arm (the one you attach the embroidery frame to), and the other is inside the top (under the cover/which is under the spool holder) for the side-to-side/front-to-back motion of the needle (during embroidery stitches). If these get ANY debris/lint in them, they cannot return to the correct point, so the machine (sensing this) stops you, as incorrect positioning could break your machine. I have had my son clean 2 of these, so far, and then they have worked fine. The shops tend to want you to dump the machine, or pay for a complete new part, when my experience is that you just need someone, who is mechanically minded, to open it up, and carefully clean it.

If it really is your motor overheating, you either
need it serviced, or replaced, possibly with another machine which is
more suited to the type of sewing you do.
