Question about Sewing Machines

2 Answers

Janome 10001 Machine sounds like it is straining when either sewing or doing embroidery. The red light comes on stating to check if needle is bent, material too thick or something is stuck in the machine. Have checked the above, and it is negative. What could the problem be? Thank you.

    thank you for your expertise. I believe you are right on this. I have since taken my machine in for service and the janome repairman stated it sounded like the thread was stuck. Hopefully that is the problem, as I hope it is not the DC motor or A board problems.

    Thanks again for responding.

This is a protection mechanism of the machine when it believes there is too much strain on the motor.

Check the hook race/bobbin area...for lint or thread jam....also check the couterweighted cam that drives the needle up & down, as ofter thread will catch and be wound around the shaft near the take up lever.....open the door on the Left (Face Plate) and where the shaft comes through the body is where to look, move the handwheel slowly and watch for threads....remove them gently by unwinding, be patient as they may be well jammed.........DO NOT pull and break them !!

If you are convinced there is nothing jammed & if all appears clear, there are 2 possible scenarios, and I am afraid you are not likely to be too pleased by either of them.........please don't shoot the messenger.

The DC motor is failing, or
The "A" board has problems.

Janome have a 5 year warantee on the Circuit board and will replace it if it fails within this period.

This is a complex and valuable machine and may need the services of a well qualified Janome Trained Service Technician, not just any old hack repairman.

Protect your investment.

Best Wishes and hopes it's just the thread jam.

Thread is knotting up on bottom of fabric causing it to stop


1.check the needle & see if it's bent--if so replace
2.lay the needle on a flat surface & roll the needle over if it doesn't roll true replace
3.check for blunt needle-if needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates fabric
4.needle is not all way up in holder
on my mechanical sewing machine sometimes the threads come off the take up lever, that causes the thread to bunch up under something I'm working on
also check thread in bobbin

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

Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.


You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.

Are you checking the simple things such as making sure you have the presser foot up when you thread and the tensions set between 4 and 6, bobbin in the correct way round and tension enough to pull the thread through with some resistence.

The memory card cannot be over 128 mb. Also the files need to be .jef format and stored in an emb folder on the card. I hope this helps.

Cannot get Janome 10001 to read via USB direct link from computer


here's how I do it.
1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files.
2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts.
3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable.
4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software).
5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth.
6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one).
7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar).
8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C).
9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing).
10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.

To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.
