You need to change the bulb.
Most light bulbs in almost all sewing machines are located inside the face plate on the left hand side of the machine.
The faceplate is usually hinged at the back and it opens a bit like a door. It should open fairly easily and close with a click.
Open the faceplate and unscrew the bulb, it should be in plain view.
Look to see if it a screw or bayonet type.
Replace it the same way you would an ordinary bulb.
You can get sewing machine bulbs on ebay but you'll need to know which type of fitting it has before you buy.
Hope this helps!

We replaced the bulb and it doesn't work


If a new bulb does not work, then it is most likely something else, perhaps the wiring or a connection. You can probably have your machine serviced to get it fixed, or go purchase a light that you can place close to your machine to light the sewing area. There are lights available with attachment clips and a bendable neck that well let you get the light in the right spot. There are also strings of LED lights available on eBay that you can attach to the upper part of the throat to light the work area. I replaced my regular sewing machine bulb with an LED bulb and was surprised how much better it lights.

Would a broken bulb stop an Lena machine from working?


Normally the light bulb function should not affect the machine's ability to operate, however, it could be if your machine is a computerized model. Try replacing the bulb and then test.

What's a fair price to repair a light bulb on 440QE?


Linda, The light bulb can fail for a number of reasons. If the power board has had the output transistor for the lighting circuit fail the 600.00 is reasonable. I would get a second opinion. Impossible to diagnose by email.

Light bulb keeps blowing


The light from a light bulb is caused by the metal filament being white hot, over 1000 degrees Centigrade, so touching hot isn't too much in those circumstances! However there may be a ventilation problem in the bulb area but our machines are just the same in the bulb area. A bulb that has gone black has had an air leak into the glass envelope and this it may well be a just poor quality bulb.
Are you getting the correct bulb? Some shops will supply one for a normal light which has a weaker construction and is not suited to vibration and working in an enclosed area. If you (or the shop) use a bulb with a higher wattage than specified with the good intention of supplying a better light it could also be supplying more heat....
A genuine Janome bulb - if you can get one - may cost more but should last a lot longer. I don't want to say your sewing supply shop is not providing the right bulb but ....

The other possibility is that you have just had a run of bad luck to counteract someone else's good luck of not having a bulb blow. Sorry (but thanks!).

Finally, try to avoid touching the bulb with your bare hands when you fit the new one. All peoples, everybody's, hands have a natural layer of oils on the surface that can cause hot spots on a bulb surface and make it blow. If you have any acetone type thinners (nail varnish remover) give the bulb a wipe over with that before fitting to make sure it is thoroughly clean and use a piece of new clean cloth to hold it when you are fitting the bulb.

Good luck

I can't find a button to turn on the light on my Designer 1


There is no button to turn on the light. When the machine is turned on, the lights come on. If they are not working it means that one of the bulbs needs replacing. If one bulb blows, neither light works. The bulbs are readily available from auto spare parts shops. See page 110 of your manual for instructions on how to replace the bulb.
