Janome Heart Truth

Dear Expert,

I really need your help. I had presented my wife a Janome HeartTruth 2008 sewing machine, purchased in US (120 V). Out of excitement, she plugged the sewing machine socket in Bangalore, India (230 V). There was no noise or smoke, however, I am unable to get any help from other sewing machine service provider. We have also tried with adapter and step down transformer, however to no use. Since it is difficult to ship the machine to US again, appreciate if you can help me fix this problem pls.

Best Regards

You need to replace the fuse inside the transformer/power supply. It requires an 800ma 250 Vac Bussman fuse that is 1.25 inches long. You more than likely blew that fuse plugging it into the 230V supply. With a new fuse it should work with a voltage stepdown to 120V.

I have the exact problem.

Janome guarantees the machine, not the individual dealer, so phone your new local dealer and explain the will need proof of purchase, receipt or Visa statement etc, .....remember, no dealer wants an unhappy customer, they want to know how they can help find a give them a chance before the year is up.

There are three circuit boards in the 7500. You should be able to get the correct board from any Janome dealer and if you need help installing it, I can help. It's very simple.
