Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
Why does my memory craft 9000 keep stopping after 5-6 seconds of manual stitching culminating in an error message - after checking bobbin threads, press start button?
It continues to do this indefinitely.
It has been a good machine for 7 years (or more) enjoying much success with embroidery and normal sewing but wonder if it is wearing out? Has any one else had or overcome this problem.
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.
