1 Answer


reading here on a similar model the E1 code can be a blown fuse becouse of a jam up on the bobbin or spoolcase somewhere
you need to take it too a dealer who will replace the bad fuse
and service the machine looking of any bent metal etc that may have occured in the jam state

SOURCE: LED display on Janome Sewing Machine reads SP

SP means Spool Pin. It is currently in position to wind a bobbin. Move the bobbin winder pin to the left and SP should disappear.

SOURCE: janome e1 error

The erreor 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 ......

SOURCE: buttonhole jams - 'bl' what do I do?

Have just had the same thing. Found out that the BL stands for Buttonhole Lever. On pg 22 of your manual you will see at step 3 that you need to pull down the buttonhole lever as far as you can before attempting to sew. On your machine it is a black lever tucked up under near the needle. Hope this helps. Cheers

If a warrantee job, it will be no charge.
Motor in Australia is $ installation charge.
You could phone or email Janome HQ or another dealer in your country and ask for an explaination of the E1 error to satisfy yourself of what is the likely cause, and a quote to fix it.

SOURCE: Am I to oil the Janome DC3050? If so, where?

Hi Betty:

The only place I am aware that the user can oil their machine is in the bobbin race. Take our your bobbin and look for a tiny white wick usually right in the center. Apply ONLY 1 drop of oil.

Won't sew, the fabric stays in one spot

is the problem the fabric is not moving forward but staying in one spot? which would mean the feeddogs need to be checked to see what position there in --up for sewing---down for darning
or the thread is not feeding into the machine?
