its the sensor on the bobinwinder who are loose. If you are handy. you can remove the top cover of the machine.
And on the left side of the bobinwinder you will find a micro switch. Probably you have to tighten the screw on it..

SOURCE: machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.

I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

If a warrantee job, it will be no charge.
Motor in Australia is $149-00.....plus installation charge.
You could phone or email Janome HQ or another dealer in your country and ask for an explaination of the E1 error to satisfy yourself of what is the likely cause, and a quote to fix it.

step motor error may mean the embroidery arm is out of position gently push it back home towards the machine and see if this helps. If the mother board is gone, they will not be able to replace it as its so old, but you may be able to get an 8000 or 9000 on ebayso you can still use your discs if you don't want to get a new machine

Bobbin winder is engaged and shows up on screen correctly, but sewing mode is still engaged and bobbin winding keeps stopping.


check the drive knob on the end of the machine
it should be loose when winding a bobbin
if it is tight or seized then that will drive the needle

What does E3 error code on Janome MO 200 sewing machine mean?


If you do not have your user's manual, you can purchase another one at several sites for a nominal charge, and download it immediately. I would recommend that you have one, and keep it near or under your machine.

You can also contact Janome customer service, either by email or phone, and here's the link: Janome Contact Us

Memory craft 5200 showing error 3


If your user manual doesn't tell you, and your dealer doesn't know,
you can go to the Janome website, go to tech support , and they can answer your question.
DO NOT use your machine until you get the error corrected.

I have a Janome 1600P QC drags on a Little Gracie 2 frame


Sorry for your headache. It is the frame. If it is not level, balanced, you have hell to pay. Also it there is a nick in the grooves of the carriage tracks this will cause a machine problem. You may be able to repair the frame, or level it about the old level the table trick, put something under that part.

Good luck

Janome 6600p: E1 error



Hi
Direct from the Janome workbook E3 error relates to:
"Stepping motor for tension release (MC6500P & MC6600P only)"
Ensure there is no lint or thread trapped between the discs of the top tension unit.........try "flossing" where thread goes down thru tension unit with a scrap of clean fabric.
It may also be the mechanism that releases tension when the presser foot is raised....it is a sensor and may be out of alignment...not really an easy home fix.
Let me know how you get on, just remind me of the issue as I respond to many.
