I turned off my janome and it won't turn back on. Did I turn it wrong.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Check where your power cord goes into the machine. It can look plugged in but actually can be loose. Push it in all the way and try again.
Is the end that goes into the wall in firmly?
Do the rest of the things plugged into that outlet work or might a circuit breaker have popped?
Is the outlet that it is plugged into a switched outlet (one of the places you plug into is connected so that the light switch to the room has to be turned on for it to work?
Is it plugged into a surge protector and has the off switch on the surge protector bar accidentally gotten turned off?
I left it sit for about 1/2 hour and tried it and it came on.
Thanks for your help
When I purchased my Janome 9000 year ago, the shop owner advised me that I must wait at least five minutes after turning the machine on before I turn it off. It's some sort of safety program. You don't say how many minutes passed before you tried to turn it back on, but this is something to keep in mind.Originally Posted by beccaabug
BTW, how do you like your 9000? I LOVE mine and wouldn't trade it in for the 10000, especially since I would have had to purchase a devise to use my 9000 embroidery memory cards. Lately I've been using the embroidery part to embellish the blocks I've made for the Row Robin exchange. Belles
How long ago have you had it serviced? I've got the 9000 also and it's never done that. I would watch it closely as it may be a sign that something's wrong.
I have the 9000, this happened to me a couple of times following a power cut while living in Spain. Apparently the machine has an overide built in, after leaving for quite a while switched off, it came on again and worked perfectly... Hope yours does too!
Could it have blown a fuse in the plug? Just a thought.... :wink:
