SOURCE: MC 11000 janome stops reading presser foot "p"

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: my janome memory craft 9000 sews without pushing

Inside the foot control is a component called a supressor.......it is there to reduce or stop the "crackle" interference you may have on TV & Radio when using the machine.
It is not necessary for the functioning of the machine, but when it fails, or burns out, there is generally an acrid smell of burned plastic.....then it runs on by itself and you need to turn it off at the switch to stop it.
Best suggestion if you are not comfortable about opening electrical items, is to take it to a Janome service centre and tell them exactly what is wrong, as described above.. "a burned out suppressor, and the machine now runs by itself"
They ought to be able to do this for very little money really, it is a 2 minute job.......if it has been a while since the last service, you may wish to consider having it all done at the same time, depends on usage and budget in the end.
Let us all know how you get on.

SOURCE: I have a Janome 6260. My machine sewed great, but

I've had the Lo come on my screen of my sewing machine also, but normally when I turned it off it corrected the jam up.
Lo- A button is pressed when the machine halts due to a overload
wait 15 seconds to recover
if thread jamming causes the overload, remove the tangled thread
check the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
also check to see if the bobbin is warped
check you needle to see if it's bent-roll on a flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if it's blunt it makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
let me know if these suggestions help

Slow sewing regardless of speed setting


I'm thinking that the problem is in the foot control
take the foot control to a sewing machine repair shop and have it checked out
you say it appears aftermarket--probably is to replace a faulty OEM unit

My janome feedomatic compact sewing machine gone's wild. As soon as i plugged it on,itautomatically runs at full blast! Can anyone tell me what's wrong? I cant see any auto buttons on


unplug the foot controller to eliminate it as the problem ,however if the machine does not run like mad as soon as you switch it on
without the foot pedal then you have isolated the problem to the foot pedal,it could be stuck on full speed .

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.

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

Timing serger needle


If machine speed is not controllable with your foot controller, you probably need a new controller. These items should be covered by a 2 year warranty from Janome.

I find my janome overlock machine is very slow ,i would like to know how to increase its speed


There is no speed seperate control on overlockers other than the foot control but most sew at 1500 stitches per minute, very fast compared to sewing machines.

What is your stitch length set to as this could be the problem. For normal four thread stretch seam you would want the length set to beween 2 and 3 so double check this - the length knob is usually a knob on the right side near the flywheel.

Hopefully, the above solves the problem for you but if not, please message again.

How do you set the tension on a janome 6260 sewing machine?


Refer to the manual.

You turn the tension knob - the higher the number the tighter the stitch.

First, thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control for the thread to properly enter.

Then, when you lower the presser foot, the tension control closes to the setting you have selected.

Janome 5124 keeps running after I depress foot


Greetings, I experienced the same problem. Mine only ran a few stitches. Foot pressure on the foot feed was always "tension" problem in my foot.

I turned the foot feed around and upside down.
I press on the foot feed at the open end not the pivot (cord) end. This has given me much better control. Janome had no options for foot feed adjustment or replacement, but this has helped greatly. You may have to practice to get used to it

Motor is sluggish, Necchi Model#4795


Set machine to wind the bobbin to check for how fast the machine will run. I believe it will run fast or slow according to how hard you depress the foot control. If it runs fast and slow you have a problem in the machine. Most likely the machine, if turned by hand, is hard to turn and it needs to be professionally serviced. before it is ruined.
