Question about Janome Sewing Machines
The machine may have been knocked out of time and the safety device activated.
Make Model error E5
As a suggestion, when you thread the top thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This allows the thread to fully seat in the tension disk which will help prevent that "thread nest," or as I call "thread-barfs," at the beginning of your stitching. It also helps to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric and then gently holding both thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Replace the needle.
The tension on the bottom may be too tight(loosen) or the top tension may not be tight enough (tighten). Try to fix with the top tension being tightened first.. Move the hand wheel first for a couple of rounds. If it is still a problem the bottom tension will need to be loosened. Always make sure all of the old threads are cleaned out thoroughly. Now, here is a problem chart to look at if this isn't a fix.
E5: The machine is jammed or the foot controller is defective. A. Replace the foot controller. B. Check for a tight or stuck clutch by the hand wheel. C. The machine may be jammed. Remove the timing belt to locate whether the bind is on the upper shaft or lower shaft. If it is the upper shaft, there may be thread caught in the take-up lever or crank pin. If the lower shaft is binding, check hook clearance, hook backlash. D. If you continue to have the problem, loosen the screws that hold the metal, lower shaft supporter. While the machine is running slow-to-medium speed, tighten the screws. E. Clean the sensor on the DC motor and check if the shield plate on the motor is not loose or hitting the sensor. If either the sensor or shield plate is damaged, replace the motor. F. Check the lower shaft sensor. Make sure the shield plate is going perfectly thru the middle of the sensor. Replace the sensor and/or shield plate if damaged. G. If you still get the error, replace the DC motor or lower shaft sensor (in this order).
