Question about Janome Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Is there anyone who can repair a Janome MC 8000 with the stepping motor error. Mine had been running fine until I sewed over a thick flannel seam with a hidden pin. It knocked the needle out of alignment then this steppingmotor message came up on the screen. Can't get the machine to do anything...dealer time me it couldn't be fixed....so bummed!

    Sorry for duplication of instruction part 2 which appears first, the first is on the bottom showing which buttons to press first to initiate the process. Hope this helps

You might try "resetting" your machine. It is not difficult; however, I cannot get my copy of instructions on here. If you like, you may email me and I should be able to provide the instructions to you.

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 8000 Stepping Motor Error

Bear with me here...
When the Janome 8000 is turned on, one of the first things that it does is run the stepper motors to return the embroidery carriage back to its original position.
The computer in the Janome needs to know when the embroidery carriage is back in the correct position and to do so, it uses a sensor.
If the sensor fails, it does not know that the carriage is back in the correct position.
When the sensor fails, what happens is that the stepper motor keeps running even though the embroidery carriage is fully back, so what you hear is a horrible grinding sound. The grinding sound itself is nothing to worry about, actually it is good news, it means that the stepper motor is fine.
Janome in their infinite wisdom decided that whether the motor failed or the sensor failed, that they would simply say on the screen that the stepper motor failed.
I have repaired a machine with this problem, in my case it turned out that the sensor was okay, but someone had damaged the main circuit board, breaking the track from the sensor to the computer.
Unfortunately, I don't know if this sort of repair is something that the average repairman can take care of. I am an electronics engineer, so thats why it wasn't a problem for me.
I just thought some extra information on what is going on might give you a head start in getting some one to fix it for you.

This is the diagnistics routine for Janome 9000.

Run each test in sequence from 1 - 13, or until you find error

The results of this may not be what you want to hear, and may be why no-one has yet replied....I hope for an easy resolution for you

SOURCE: stepping motor error

From what I've read here, it could be one of two things: a blown motherboard or a scratched bobbin case.


Before you do anything else, I'd remove the bobbin case, clean it and the area around it thoroughly (and check it for scratches or dings -- perhaps a needle broke recently?) and then replace it and see if that fixes the error.

If not, unfortunately, I'll bet it's time for a check-up with a repairman. :(

Best of luck to you!!

SOURCE: Screen dull on Janome mc 8000

There is an LCD Backlight Panel that illuminates the screen, and yes, they do fail.
Before you start, just check the screen contrast dial inside the top cover, front right, they can be easily knocked and this will also cause the screen to go light or dark.
Janome no longer supplies the LCD Backlight, however, we have an after market replacement at our store, and also provide fitting instructions and a good deal more besides.
If you care to contact me I can send a Diagnostic Routine and the Screen Reset instructions for you to check if there is anything else causing troubles.
Please remember to give details of your dilemma as we do receive a lot of requests.

JANOME MEMORYCRAFT 8000 STEPPING MOTOR ERROR


if you ever have this problem, it is because you have had something in the way of the embroidery arm at the back of the machine, so it has not been able to move freely; you'll get a terrible noise as the machine is unable to do what it wants, slips gears or something and then can't bring the arm to its home position. But fear not, i have found if you turn the machine off and gently push the arm back home to touch the machine as it is the start position, when you turn it on, it will work fine and no harm done. just make sure the arm can move freely before you start embroidery!
