Janome MC 9000 Embroidery/Sewing Machine

My Janome MC 900 has a problem that when I touch the up/down needle button to bring up the bobbin thread, it shuts off. Won't sew another stitch. Have had it at a Janome dealor and he said that he fixed it, but when I got home with it, still same problem. Help!!
What happens and how can I get help?
I bought it new in 2000. The dealer that I bought it from is no longer in business.

    Once the machine finishes sewing the first step in making a buttonhole it sews a straight stitch for the second step but never goes back to do the zigzag stitch on that side of the button hole.

Janome 9000 bobbin thread ends up on top of fabric


change the needle--
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

rethread the top thread--top & bobbin
check the bobbin to make sure the bobbin is not damaged
reinsert the bobbin in the case correctly

I am new to this machine & would like to know how to use metallic embroidery thread. Every time I try the thread breaks


check the tension
if the thread will not easily pull thru the needle eye you need one size larger needle
also keep under the needle plate clean of lint
& also the bobbin area

Does this machine have a low shank --- or high shank?


High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop

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.

Thread keeps breaking


Have you checked any edge the thread might contact for knicks which should be files or sanded down? Also, I had to replace my bobbin case after a number of years as it had kind of stretched out and allowed my bobbin to pop around and consequently broke many threads.

Bollocks just calibrate.

Error; after checking bobbin threads, press start button


This is most probably solved by an adjustment to your bobbin thread sensor, and not something for the home handy fellow......especially without a manual.

Be sure that there is no lint build up in or under the bobbin case as a first measure, and give this area a good clean anyway as normal housekeeping.....this will probably make little difference, but may let you finish any urgent job over the weekend.

When was your machine last serviced ?
2 years or more ?
When was your car last serviced ?

Your best solution is to take it to an authorised Janome Service Centre (make sure they have the Service Manual for this model) and make sure to tell them about the bobbin sensor issue so that it can be specifically targeted during a full service.

This MC 9000 was expensive and the top of the range in it's day and deserves good regular care to work to its optimum for many more years.

Janome 9000


I have a Janome 9000, was sewing and broke needle, replaced and broke another. I didn't have machine threaded, took out bobbin and would sew a little and stop saying thread broke. I took off top plate and started machine again, sew a little and stop saying thread broke. So I took out bobbin case and sewed again and stopped repeating the message. Everything looks OK, bobbin case and top plate. I guess I want to know if the timing could be off or do you think it is the computer part of the machine...Should I take it to the Sewing Machine Shop??

Fabric doesn't Feed


I have a Janome, and when switching from embroidery back to sewing, I must touch a button that electronically moves the mode from embroidery to sewing. In some cases, I've also had to turn off the machine for a few minutes and then turn it on again.

I used to own a Viking - it had a little door covering the attachment link for the embroidery arm. If it wasn't perfectly shut, the machine wouldn't convert to sewing mode, regardless of what button I pushed.
