    Thanks I will take this advice on board
    I think I have a few things to check
    another suggestion was that the thread should be janome top and bottom not inferior threads
    what do you think?
    Also does anyone know how the automatic thread cutter is supposed to work
    Sorry about this but it was an early Christmas present and I am keen to get into it

    Problem solved thank you all so much

I have a Janome 1600P and the top thread keeos breaking

There are several common reasons for upper thread breakage.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.
All About Needles

Remove the upper thread from the machine, install a brand new needle, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

JANOME 300E thread jamming & breaking when embroidering over previously embroidered section.

It's too thick in that area. this happens sometimes when you get designs made for one of the larger or professional machines. Not much you can do unless you have a digitizer and can reduce the amount of under stitching.

I am having trouble with applique on a memory craft janome 4800.

Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin case

After that reboot the machine and used it....first try is persisted but when you used it continuously for at least 10 minutes your machine is OK...

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine

A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.
