It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)
Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.
Let me know if this helps, ok?

Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.
But to change presser fot:
If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.
If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.

If you go to the Janome website of your home country they will have a dealer locator page where you can find your nearest dealer.
Explain the problem and they will be able to order the replacement part for you.
You may find that parts availability at this time of year will be restricted as many businesses and suppliers close for several weeks.

You have to be sure you have the correct foot on the machine and that it is put on correctly. You can't use a regular foot - you need to use the embroidery foot P, which require you to remove the foot holder altogether, and put on the P.

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.
