I went to start a new project and noticed I didn't' return the carriage when I finished the last project. It has happen a few times before. When I started machine the carriage made a few strange noises and I was prompted with a warning. I think it stated. Raise needle and foot and restart. Set up new project when I went to hook up the hoop I seen that the carriage was loose? What did I do? I have unplugged my machine and restated with no results. When i went to trace the design the carriage will move to the left and right but not forward or back?
When my janome 350e did this I had to take it in to be calibrated and one month later it did it again and I had to take it back it has not given me any problems since but it would be nice to know how to do this myself it only took 5 minutes for this and takes me 3 hours there and 3 hours back. Hope this helps.
See if the embroidery arm is bent, that will jam the unit as it trys to move. If is bent you may be able to straighten my bending it gently. The arms get bent by tilting the machine to the back while the arm is exrended.
Is this where the belt would be also, because my arm bumped the wall because it did not have enough clearance and it jumps and clicks when returning to home.
