I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........ The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal. Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing. It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.
on the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs. When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!! They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution. sewman7
We have about 30 electroluminescent backlights for the 8000 still available .These are not original Janome parts. You will need a Janome service person to install then for you as it requires taking apart alot of the machine to get to the display. We can provide instructions if this person is unsure how to fit. Once the display is out, the process is simple. They are AUD$60 each including shipping. Email at email@example.com
