Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
While i was using the embroidery feature the thread got tight and the needle got pulled onto the foot and broke causing the machine to just stop
The 9000 has a safety fuse which blows to protect the circuit board from overloading. It is a simple 3amp fuse available at Radio Shack or automotive store.
If you are mechanically inclined, give it a try. If you are not, take it to a dealer who knows how to repair it.
Remove the top cover by taking the two large screws and the small one under the handle, LHS.
Remove the left side cover. The hidden screw is a 2.5mm allen accessed through the vent.
Lay the machine on its back and remove the four large phillips screws on the bottom and the small screw for the side, paying extreme caution with respect to the embroidery arm.
CAREFULLY move the base unit to the left and out of the way.
Inside the body of the machine you will see a black box held in place by three or torx/slotted screws. Remove the screws and, as you slowly pull the box out MAKE NOTE OF WHICH WIRES PLUG IN WHERE.
One of the wires will not remove.
On the other side of the box, remove the two screws that hold the cover on.
Inside, remove the two screws that hold the board.
Inside you will find two fuses. One will be blown. Replace with new fuse and reassemble.
When refitting the base unit, make sure that the knee lifter is on the correct side of the lever. Also, orient the base so that the accessory bin fits properly.
After securing the base unit with the four large screws, test the knee lifter to make sure that you got it right.
You will then need to recalibrate your clothsetter if you have one.

It seems that when the needle broke it overloaded the machine motor which has caused a fuse to blow.
the fuse is not user accessable so take it to a tech.
