Change your needle and take bobbin out to see if you have a thread jam.

SOURCE: E1 Error

If your sewing machine show's the E1 Error, then you have to open your sewing machine and replace the fuse.(you have to open the right Cover on Front where the Display is placed, because there is the circuit board placed!) There are 3 Fuses in the Sewing machine and they are placed at the printed circuit board. It should be the Fuse in the middle. (not those with the wire in it!) It's not easy at all to open the machine, the best thing you can do (if you have a Digicam) take some Pictures of the wiring so it will be much easier to put it back together. I'm NOT an Expert; but a passionate hobbyist. ;) If you are too; just save yourself further trouble with the helpdesk, and fix it yourself. I hope this post could help you!

Take out your bobbin case and examine it for nicks, scratches and or rough spots.If the problem is not too bad it may be possible to buff out the bad spot with an emery stick or emery cloth. If that isn't possible or it makes too much noise after you buff it you will have to replace it. Look especially along the edges and underneath.

SOURCE: janome 5700 handwheel stuck/inside pulley stuck

The error message relates to the motor sensing that it is working unusually hard.........the extra strain will have a physical cause, generally in the hook and bobbin region.......something blocking or slowing things down, so....... 
Remove needleplate and bobbin case. 
You will probably find an accumulation of lint in and around this area, also possibly in the feeddog channels. 
Use a small brush and vacuum with crevice tool to remove the lint and wipe the hookrace with a tissue moistened with methylated (denatured) spirit to remove any dirt deposits. 
Also check that the bobbin case is not damaged on the top surface by needle strikes or on the underside rim by the hook gouging as it spins. 
If damage is present but mild, you can use very fine emery paper to smooth surface, if more severe, replace the bobbin case. Don't forget to change needles regularly too. 
Best of ......

Slacken the stop motion as if to wind a bobbin and press on the foot control, if the motor runs really fast then you have either thread stuck in the bobbin case area or you may need to oil the machine

Janome 6600 bobbin will not wind error "stop for safety purposes"


I have a feeling the sensor has been jolted just enough to make it stop. Pretty sure this can be adjusted by the dealer quickly. Worse case scenario, you'll have to replace a sensor.

The Yamata sewing machine isn't making any stitches. When a press the peddle the machine makes a spinning sound and nothing happens. If I keep working with it and adjust the controls sometimes it will sew...


Hold the wheel at the end of the sewing machine, and then tighten the hub that is in the middle of that wheel. It is purposely designed to tighten and loosen, so you can wind bobbins up with thread without running all the parts of the sewing machine when you do so.

My 6003 Elna machine stop and says stop for safety purposes How do I get it unlock from that It wont do anything


This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

Janome New Home mx3123 reverse button not working


1/28/13 - I have Janome Harmony 2049 that was initially sewing forward with no reverse and then after about 12 inches of sewing would ONLY sew in reverse. After spending an hour getting the plastic housing off...I was able to locate the shaft that made the reverse. It needed lubrication and after working it in and unjamming the part from the down position, the forward and reverse now work!
Huh, right? Hope it continues to work well. It is a smooth running machine, otherwise. Good luck!

Stop for Safety Purposes ?


I have had this happen to me many times. It really does feel as though the problem is in the bobbin, but it's not. After much aggrivation I took it into the repair shop and found out the thred was comming unhooked on the top not in the bobbin. It still happens all the time but I know what it is now so I just rethred the top.
