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.

The RCS Unit powers on but I cannot use any functions. When you press the buttons, nothing happens

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.

My brother LS 1217 sewing machine under thread is very loose. I tried all options like adjusting the wheels, tension, rethreading and played with the machine. No use.

Brother CS-6000 E1 error message - my presser foot is not up!

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.

Janome 9000 won't turn on

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 and ask the professional Ask Jan, if none of these solutions work.
Hope this helps

Shuttle alignment and assembly

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.

19606 sewing machine

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.

Machine foot will not work

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. Good luck. Rick
