Question about Janome Sewing Machines

Open Question

My Janome Harmony 8100 will occasionally stop and give me a System Error #1 - I cannot find anything about this error. It is a computerized machine with 70 stiches and attachable embroidery hoop. I first started getting this error with the hoop and now get it when I am just sewing. As soon as the needle goes down to the bobbin, I get the error. The machine freezes and the only way to get rid of the error is to turn the machine off. Sometimes I can get the machine going again, but now it will not run. Can you help?

The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.

This is the diagnistics routine for Janome 9000.

Run each test in sequence from 1 - 13, or until you find error

The results of this may not be what you want to hear, and may be why no-one has yet replied....I hope for an easy resolution for you

Hi - first, check your manual to see if the error is described somewhere. Follow the instructions. If the manual tells you to take the machine in for repair, try a couple things first.

Often when your needle starts to shudder, the thread is caught on something somewhere along the sewing path. Turn off your machine, change your needle, take all of the thread out of the machine and rethread it. Then remove your bobbin to make sure that there is nothing stuck in the bobbin case, or in the area where you insert your bobbin into the machine. Look around the sewing area to see if something looks out of place.

After you insert a new needle and rethreaded your machine, and before you turn the machine back one, try using the wheel to make a few stitches manually. Watch your sewing thread to make sure it is feeding evenly. If the needle does not move up and down correctly, or if you hear a grinding or bumping sound, you probably need to take the machine to be repaired. Otherwise, turn your machine back on. If the error message is gone, try sewing slowly for several inches - if all seems well, increase the speed a little at a time. If anything seems off to you while you sew - stop sewing immediately and look very carefully to see if you can find a problem.

SOURCE: Janome sewing machine Harmony 2139 The

A common problem is if needle is in backwards. The small groove side should be toward the operator. As the needle starts back up after going clear down, a small loop should form on the side of the needle away from teh operator. The shuttle has a point that goes through this loop to snag the upper thread and carry it over the top of the bobbin. Also verify that needle is propely seated.
If an accident has happened with the machine that MIGHT have disturbed the timing, then that could be the cause and one would have to take it for repair.
Slowly watch for the loop, with covers off, and manually cycle to watch for the operation I have described.

Which parts on my Harmony 8080 (Janome) sewing machine do I oil.


Do you have a manual? Most Janomes have a sealed oil system meaning you don't ever oil anything besides the little wick under the bobbin case, just one drop now and then.

I am having trouble buttonholling on my Janome, it is new. It starts sewing and then stops and blinks 6L. What have I done wrong


Check your manual and follow the instructions. The error message may be listed in the trouble shooting at the back of the manual.

Probably will need to put on the buttonholing foot, pull down a lever which guides the machine to sew the length correctly and choose a buttonholing setting on the stitch selection.

Also, for good buttonholes, always interface the fabric to give it stability.

Janome New Home mx3123 reverse button not working


1/28/13 - I have Janome Harmony 2049 that was initially sewing forward with no reverse and then after about 12 inches of sewing would ONLY sew in reverse. After spending an hour getting the plastic housing off...I was able to locate the shaft that made the reverse. It needed lubrication and after working it in and unjamming the part from the down position, the forward and reverse now work!
Huh, right? Hope it continues to work well. It is a smooth running machine, otherwise. Good luck!
