The feed dogs are the parts which move under the fabric to move it back after it has been sewn.
If you need to drop them for free motion work and there is normally a lever in the area on the machine below them to move to drop them when needed.

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.

We need a repair manual


Janome stopped supplying the Back Light for the MC8000 some years ago. An enterprising fellow in Sydney, Australia does have some that he had manufactured especially to replace the Janome version.
What region do you live ?
I can give you the contact details and you can see about international freight etc. if applicable
As far as the Service Manual, they are given to Janome Trained Technicians and you will find it very difficult to persuade one to let you have a copy, it is their livelihood afterall.

Janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog


I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

Quilting on Janome MC 4000


I have a MC4000 and a manual. To raise or drop the feed dog, remove the accessory box and feel at the back of the free arm there is a lever that will slide left or right to raise or lower the feed dog. I am not a quilter, but the manual says to use foot A (zigzag foot) and accessory L (quilter) which appears to be a guide. Cheers, Deb, Townsville, Australia

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!

Janome 8000 memory craft embroidery/sewing machine


on the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs.
When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!!
They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution.
