SOURCE: Oiling a Jonome 6600
Remove the plate and bobbin case, beneath it will be a small round hole in the center. Inside the hole is a fluffy piece of absorbant material called the wick. DO NOT REMOVE IT! Place one drop of sewing machine oil on the wick. While you have the machine opened up, you should remove all the dust. I use the small brush that comes with the machine. Replace the bobbin case and make sure that it is clean too. Replace the plate. Lastly add a couple of drops of sewing machine oil to a q-tip and use it to apply oil to the needle bar above the needle clamp.
If your machine continues to squeek then bring it to a professional sewing machine repair technician and pay for the service to have it professionally cleaned and tune up. It is not worth damaging you machine over a few dollars well spent.

Direct from the Janome workbook E3 error relates to:
"Stepping motor for tension release (MC6500P & MC6600P only)"
Ensure there is no lint or thread trapped between the discs of the top tension unit.........try "flossing" where thread goes down thru tension unit with a scrap of clean fabric.
It may also be the mechanism that releases tension when the presser foot is raised....it is a sensor and may be out of alignment...not really an easy home fix.
Let me know how you get on, just remind me of the issue as I respond to many.
