Janome Sewing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Likely there's a size limit to the USB memory stick. It doesn't say in the 200E manual but a search on "usb stick" on the Janome site would indicate some earlier USB capable machines may have a 2GB limit.

No the feed dogs aren't dropped on the Janome 1600 series sewing machines. Instead, you cover them with the darning plate. I haven't found the darning plate sold separately. https://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/jan-767-827-009.php is a source for the darning foot and darning plate. As far as I can tell, the darning plate is not among the original accessories for any of the Janome 1600 models. The manuals for two of the Janome 1600 models are on the retired machine page: https://www.janome.com/support/retired-machine-manuals/ . The manual for the Janome 1600P-QC is on that machine page: https://www.janome.com/machines/sewing/1600p-qc/ . The direct link to this manual is https://www.janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/professional-series/inst-book-1600pqc.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Sounds like your tension is too tight for one, and the timing is off . That's why you hear a click. The gears aren't in sync.

the sensor must not be working. I thought the 9000 lowered feed dogs automatically when embroidery option is choosen anyway. There is a manual as well as on screen drop feed dogs method for this machine
