My xl400 singer embroidery carriage has stopped working. Will not move at all when machine is turned on. Also keep getting msg error about hoop size but no hoop attached.


The switch for "sew" or "embroidery" must first be in the "embroidery" position.
Make sure the connections are very firmly pushed in.
If it still isn't functional it may require some small motors to be replaced. The motors are what makes the hoop move.

Janome mb4 embroidery machine-when carriage resets it goes all the way to the right


It sounds like your x-axis sensor is either broken or malfunctioning. When the machine initializes, this sensor tells the machine when it has reached the furthest point in it's range of motion. If it is not working properly, the carriage will extend past it's normal range, and stop when it physically cannot move any further. After a specified amount of time the x-axis motor shuts off, and an error message will appear. For a certain diagnosis and repair, it would be best to take your machine in to a Janome dealer.

Embroidery machine is making grinding noise and carriage doesn't move. Then, screen says malfuntion, turn machine off.


Just because the hoop holder has been moved during transportation. Shut down the machine, manually bring hoop holder in central position in both X and Y, it will restart.

Error 1 message will not leave


Hi - first, check your manual to see if the error is described somewhere. Follow the instructions. If the manual tells you to take the machine in for repair, try a couple things first.

Often when your needle starts to shudder, the thread is caught on something somewhere along the sewing path. Turn off your machine, change your needle, take all of the thread out of the machine and rethread it. Then remove your bobbin to make sure that there is nothing stuck in the bobbin case, or in the area where you insert your bobbin into the machine. Look around the sewing area to see if something looks out of place.

After you insert a new needle and rethreaded your machine, and before you turn the machine back one, try using the wheel to make a few stitches manually. Watch your sewing thread to make sure it is feeding evenly. If the needle does not move up and down correctly, or if you hear a grinding or bumping sound, you probably need to take the machine to be repaired. Otherwise, turn your machine back on. If the error message is gone, try sewing slowly for several inches - if all seems well, increase the speed a little at a time. If anything seems off to you while you sew - stop sewing immediately and look very carefully to see if you can find a problem.

Stepping motor error on embroidery machine


Hi again and welcome back to FixYa.

It is nice of you to remember. To your concern, possibilities are:
  • if the grinding noise is coming from the bobbin case area, then pls ensure that nothing is stuck/caught there, it would only take a small foreign object to trigger the problem; or
  • verify that the embroidery carriage in its parked/original position;
  • there would be a sensor/switch that tells the computer that the embroidery carriage is back. Pls check that if the carriage is back and see if you can check the sensor/switch;
  • worst case scenario is that the controller's circuit board is faulty. In some case, it could just be the wires or connection leading to the controller board.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa again. Happy Holidays.

Loud chirping noises indicate a need for lubrication or something is rubbing against your carriage.
