Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine

Open Question

Janome 9000 could not sew straight stitch!

Hi, I was in the middle of sewing a garment using straight stitch, suddenly the needle shifted to the right as if it tried to sew zig zag... I stopped immediately as I knew the needle would break. I tried changing needles, re-thread, cleaned underneath the throat plate, nothing looks amiss, but the same thing happened again & again, I couldn't get pass the second stitch... What is wrong? I also switched off & re-stated the machine several times.

try adjusting the thread tension control! a loose setting would cause the problem! try increasing tits tightness!

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

SOURCE: needle jaming and thread gathering under bobin case

when this happens to me (the needle breaking) I make it a thing to do and that is to use a qtip with a bit of oil and clean the bobbin holder and then use canned air and blow out the lint from area and this may help you. You may have a tiny tiny piece of needle left in the holder and this will play havoc with any kind of sewing machine. I have suffered through it many times before I made this a practice when needle breaks

SOURCE: only does zig zag stitches, no straight stitches,

make sure the pattern selector is set for straight stitch first. If it is set correct then the machine may be "stuck" is zig zag mode. May need to be de greased and then re lubricated.

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?


Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

Loose stitches every 1


test it out on 2 pieces of material by rotating the wheele by hand. pay close attention to the 1" area. when you turn it by hand you can feel the area of question. is your bobbin spooled correctly. if all fails read the directions.

Touch screen not responding


Hi, my dealer told me mine might be going and it would cost $500 to repair it and it would have to be sent back to Janome for the repair.  
He said when it goes, it will be stuck on the last stitch you used.  You can still probably keep it for a straight stitch machine if you did not want to send it for repair.
