SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 8000 Stepping Motor Error

Bear with me here...
When the Janome 8000 is turned on, one of the first things that it does is run the stepper motors to return the embroidery carriage back to its original position.
The computer in the Janome needs to know when the embroidery carriage is back in the correct position and to do so, it uses a sensor.
If the sensor fails, it does not know that the carriage is back in the correct position.
When the sensor fails, what happens is that the stepper motor keeps running even though the embroidery carriage is fully back, so what you hear is a horrible grinding sound. The grinding sound itself is nothing to worry about, actually it is good news, it means that the stepper motor is fine.
Janome in their infinite wisdom decided that whether the motor failed or the sensor failed, that they would simply say on the screen that the stepper motor failed.
I have repaired a machine with this problem, in my case it turned out that the sensor was okay, but someone had damaged the main circuit board, breaking the track from the sensor to the computer.
Unfortunately, I don't know if this sort of repair is something that the average repairman can take care of. I am an electronics engineer, so thats why it wasn't a problem for me.
I just thought some extra information on what is going on might give you a head start in getting some one to fix it for you.

on the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs.
When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!!
They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution.

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

Hi, I downloaded (for free) a copy of the Envision 8006 (and 8007 supplement) manual from the Elna website 2 1/2 years ago. The Envision 8007 is the same as the Janome Memory Craft 5700. I can email you a copy of the manual.

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

Will a memory craft 4000 work without a foot pedal


Most machines require some sort of foot or knee pedal. There are, of course, treadle machines that you actually "pump" with your feet. There are also hand-crank machines available. Some of the newer machines that have a free motion capability can be set to stitch only when the fabric is moved under the lens, however, that is probably best only for free motion quilting and not for actually stitching seams, etc.

If your machine is lacking the foot pedal, check to see if a replacement can be found. Frequently, a sewing repair shop can either locate a generic or wire one for your machine.

Here's a manual for your machine:

My Janome memory craft model 9000 sewing machine is now sewing at one slow speed. The quality of the stitch is good but too slow what should I look for?


Your speed slide sensor is bad. Your local repair shop can fix it. There is a chance it's the foot pedal. If it's still slow when you sew without your pedal, then it's the sensor.

Will only do straight line stitching and will not stop when foot taken off foot pedal


could have a short in the wiring since the machine will not stop when your foot is taken off foot pedal.
could be a damaged part or the machine may need some type of adjustment because of the straight line stitching.
it would be a good idea to have the sewing machine checked.

My janome memory craft 9000 sews without pushing the foot control. It's like the foot control is stuck even if I haven't pushed it. I have to shut the machine off to get it to stop.


Inside the foot control is a component called a supressor.......it is there to reduce or stop the "crackle" interference you may have on TV & Radio when using the machine.
It is not necessary for the functioning of the machine, but when it fails, or burns out, there is generally an acrid smell of burned plastic.....then it runs on by itself and you need to turn it off at the switch to stop it.
Best suggestion if you are not comfortable about opening electrical items, is to take it to a Janome service centre and tell them exactly what is wrong, as described above.. "a burned out suppressor, and the machine now runs by itself"
They ought to be able to do this for very little money really, it is a 2 minute job.......if it has been a while since the last service, you may wish to consider having it all done at the same time, depends on usage and budget in the end.
Let us all know how you get on.
