My bobbin thread tangles when I sew. I have re-threaded upper & lower threads, taken apart the bobbin housing & put it back together but nothing is working. Any suggestion?

I have a Janome Memorycraft 7000 machine. The display has gotten progressively darker and now I cannot see it at all to select stitches. What do I need to purchase to fix this and where do I get it?

This could be a symptom of a backlight issue for the LCD screen. The entire screen may need to be replaced. If your sewing machine is under warranty, take it to the shop or contact the company. For contact info see: . I do not see a MemoryCraft 7000 listed on their site. The 9000 is listed as a retired model which came with a 20 year warranty (except for the electrical/electronics which have a 2 year warranty).

Unfortunately, Janome doesn't sell repair parts to non-dealers to the best of my knowledge.

I wish that I had better news.

Janome Memory Craft 7000 Sewing Machine- When I turn the machine on it moves the needle position slightly and message comes up Err 4, then it freezes. Any clues ????

My Memory Craft 7000 sometimes does the same thing, if it's very cold. Try warming it up by placing it near a heat source, a vent or a floor heater, for a few minutes. Then it works perfectly.
I've used these machines for over 20 years now, and they're my favorite!

If this doesn't solve your problem, you need to take it in for servicing.

They are work horses, but they do need their maintenance from time to time.

I hope this helps you.

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!
