Question about Janome Memory Craft 4800QD

1 Answer

I have a Janome MemoryCraft 4900. My question IS - can I oil my machine? I can not imagine why the needle bar , bobbin area and any other moving metal parts for that matter -- would not require a drop of sewing machine oil from time to time. The manual does not mention oiling anything. I have owned my machine for about 2 years. I know it was a lot quieter when I first go it.

    BUT, you did not say how to oil the machine, so what she asked is how to oil her machine, so you did not help in any way.

Needles lock


Have you hit a hoop while sewing? Is the needle jammed up and will not come down or down and will not go up? You need to make sure that you have no thread in the bobbin area. Even a tiny little piece will lock it up. Have you kept it oiled ? There are several places that need oiling. Bobbin area and needle bars are the two main ones. Make sure your needles are all the way up

sometimes the screws will vibrate loose on the needle bar .

My janome 11000 memorycraft's needle threader has jammed in the down position and cannot be moved


Thanks to floraq803, we have our 11000 working again. The needle threader was stuck in the down position. We turned off the machine, and turned the wheel (which controls where the needle is) until the needle threader bar was straight (approximately 1/2 way between the needle being all the way down and all the way up). Turned on the machine and the threader came back up again. Now back to sewing.

My Janome sewing machine 4900 is showing error E1 how do I fix it.


try these suggestions
change the needle--normally flat side goes to the back of the machine
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is wound correctly & that the bobbin is inserted
correctly in to the bobbin case
also make sure that the bobbin spindle is in the position to the left when not in use
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
if none of these suggestions work then the machine needs to be checked

Janome memory craft 6500 sewing machine...all of a sudden, the bobbin thread does not attach itself to the needle thread...i have taken off the plate, cleaned out the dust, rethreaded both top and bottom...


Has the bobbin case dislodged and moved? there should be two red marks one on the bobbin case and one on the outer holder, are they lining up? Sometimes as these cases are held by a magnet, they will get dislodged and move slightly, especially in a jam up.
Take out the bobbin case and clean under it, then replace it matching up the red marks.

If the bobbin case has actaully been struck by the needle during a dislodgement, it may well pierce the bobbin case plastic, look for burring or marks on the outer flange area. If this has occured, the thread may catch on the burr as it comes over the bobbin and jam again.

You can buy a new bobbin case if yours is damaged or maybe just file the burring with an emery board (remove it from the machine first of course).

Lastly, check your needle hasn't been bent, burred, or put in backwards, any of these can prevent a stitch from forming.

If all the above fails, then it is possible that the timing has been knocked out and you will need to get it serviced by a technician.

What type of bobbin should I use in my Memorycraft 4000.. Plastic or metal..I have been using metal, is this ok?


You should be using plastic bobbins for the MC4000, see: http://content.janome.com/index.cfm/Machines/Accessories/All/Bobbin_-_Plastic . Usually the machine comes with a handful of the correct size and type bobbins. Using the wrong bobbin could result in the needle hitting the bobbin and damage may occur. (Broken needles are the most likely possibility; damage to the bobbin case or timing could occur and would require the machine be serviced.)

When you buy more bobbins, make sure that they are labeled for Janome or a machine that takes the same size bobbin. See this site for a list of machines that also take this size bobbin: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/102261103%20-20pk.php

I hope this helps.
