IF IT STOPPED WORKING AS IN WOULDN'T GO UP OR DOWN WHILE SEWING THIS IS WHAT I THINK. TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU, FORCEFULLY IF NECESSARY. ONCE THE NEEDLE IS ALL THE WAY UP TAKE YOUR BOBBIN AND CARRIER OUT AND CLEAN THIS AREA AND BLOW IT OUT. PUT A DROP OF SEWING MACHINE OIL ON THE RACE WHERE THE CARRIER SITS. FIRST, CHECK THE TENSION BY HANGING THE BOBBIN AND ADJUST THE THREAD UNTIL IT WILL EXTEND A LITTLE WHEN YOU BOUNCE THE BOBBIN THREAD SOFTLY. AFTER YOU HAVE REPLACED THE CARRIER GO AHEAD AND PLACE THE PLATE ON. NOW, RETURN THE BOBBIN AND BE SURE THAT YOU REPLACE IT WITH THE THREAD GOING AWAY FROM THE BOBBIN CUT. NOW, LOAD YOUR TOP THREAD AND SET THE TENSION AT 3. TEST THIS AND ADJUST THE TOP TENSION AS YOU NEED TO. AFTER YOU ARE HAPPY THEN SEW. GOOD RULE...REPLACE YOUR NEEDLE OFTEN. CLEAN YOUR BOBBIN AREA OFTEN.

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 7000 Sewing

My Memory Craft 7000 sometimes does the same thing, if it's very cold. Try warming it up by placing it near a heat source, a vent or a floor heater, for a few minutes. Then it works perfectly.
I've used these machines for over 20 years now, and they're my favorite!

If this doesn't solve your problem, you need to take it in for servicing.

They are work horses, but they do need their maintenance from time to time.

I hope this helps you.

mine had the same problem... If you can take it apart...the part that should slide back and forth inside just needs to be oiled with machine oil.  Slide it back and forth a couple of times after oiling it and it should start to work,

Hiya Kandie. Usually when you can't pull the bobbin through, the wrong size needle is in, try a different size needle. Hope I was some help for you.
