The machine was working and then it had no power to it. I have taken the switch apart and there is power to the switch and the switch does work. Have been hesitant to take the machine further apart. But it does have power to the machine and throught the switch. HELP!

Re: Machine does not power up
The fuse is located in a little black box underneath the base of the
machine, but it is not an easy job to take the box out, disassemble it,
replace the fuse, and then reassemble the whole machine. I suggest you
take it to a service center.

Inside the machine there are many parts that have wires connected together. If one of them have been taken apart by accidental bumping it may cause this. By carefully opening up the machine and looking you may see the problem. However, touch yourself to some metal before messing with it. It is a better idea to let a pro take care of it.
the only fuses ive ever seen inside a sewing machine was located inside the foot switch assembly and ive taken apart a few dozen now , but now ive seen quite a few broken power cords and sockets in that few dozen , seems the power cords sure take a beating on these ?
Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.
Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.
The machine does not run. 1 A thread is caught in the hook race. 2 The control circuit is not working correctly. Turn the switch off and turn it on again. 3 The machine is not connected to the power supply. (I know duhh...but maybe your plug into the machine itself was loosened during your repairs.
Go to Janome.com and ask the professional Ask Jan, if none of these solutions work. Hope this helps
The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.
Find a local dealer who sells Janome. This machine and most Kenmore's are made by Janome. However I know theyb will charge $80 or so to ven lok at it. I have this same machine also refurbished and no big issues as yet except buttonholer foot was broken when I got it. Am still awaiting a new one a month later.
Have you taken the foot control apart yet? What have you got to lose. Possibly something came loose that you can put back in place? There are small carbon contacts that may be put back in place. Just remember to put it back togeather the same way you took it apart.
Or keep an eye on eBay and ask questions. Mostlikely a generic footcontrol will work.
