If you ever have this problem, it is because you have had something in the way of the embroidery arm at the back of the machine, so it has not been able to move freely; you'll get a terrible noise as the machine is unable to do what it wants, slips gears or something and then can't bring the arm to its home position. But fear not, i have found if you turn the machine off and gently push the arm back home to touch the machine as it is the start position, when you turn it on, it will work fine and no harm done. just make sure the arm can move freely before you start embroidery!

Janome MemoryCraft 6500. What does error message "BM init error" mean? What does it take to fix it?


That's an initiation error. I would call Janome direct and ask them.

My Janome memory craft 8000 will only sew backwards and the screen shows step motor error. the machine is 19 years old. Is this fixable?


step motor error may mean the embroidery arm is out of position gently push it back home towards the machine and see if this helps. If the mother board is gone, they will not be able to replace it as its so old, but you may be able to get an 8000 or 9000 on ebayso you can still use your discs if you don't want to get a new machine

Stepping motor error on janome mc 8000


From what I've read here, it could be one of two things: a blown motherboard or a scratched bobbin case.


Before you do anything else, I'd remove the bobbin case, clean it and the area around it thoroughly (and check it for scratches or dings -- perhaps a needle broke recently?) and then replace it and see if that fixes the error.

If not, unfortunately, I'll bet it's time for a check-up with a repairman. :(

Best of luck to you!!

We need a repair manual


Janome stopped supplying the Back Light for the MC8000 some years ago. An enterprising fellow in Sydney, Australia does have some that he had manufactured especially to replace the Janome version.
What region do you live ?
I can give you the contact details and you can see about international freight etc. if applicable
As far as the Service Manual, they are given to Janome Trained Technicians and you will find it very difficult to persuade one to let you have a copy, it is their livelihood afterall.

Stepping motor error


Turn off the machine, pull the embroidery unit to the left a couple of inches and to the back a couple of inches. Don't force it if it won't go. Turn on the machine and see if it will reset. If does everything should be okay. If the problem is not solved, it's time for a trip to the Dealer.
