It worked! Words can not express my gratitude. I unplugged the router, replug and hesitantly went to my machine. It worked! I sent a design via wifi to my Janome. Back in the world of the sane.
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

 Does your machine show that it's connected to wi-fi?  Mine takes a minute or two when I first turn the machine on but then the little wi-fi indicator turns black to show that it's connected.  Also make sure that your password is still in the machine.  My machine dropped the password at some unknown point for some unknown reason and I kept trying to put it back in not realizing that the machine was either set to caps or not caps and it took me a while to get things to work.

Make sure something new has not been added to your sewing space that is metal.  I have found that it doesn't even have to be a big item to block the signal.  I worked and worked on mine and I had a light blocking it.  Took the lamp away and everything worked fine.

Guessing the blue and yellow dot bobbin cases became available after the 11000 was introduced...see this Janome paper:

Re: WiFi

WiFi problems are super difficult to solve over the phone. I doubt you are being ignored, but things in the NYC - NJ area are in turmoil right now with all the new COVID restrictions, and that’s likely why you have not heard anything. Since your machine has not had any problems up to now, it’s almost certainly not a machine problem, or even the configuration of the computer. The first, and simplest, thing to try is to simply restart the router. Unplug it, count to 10, then plug in again. This will refresh the software inside and reconnect everything. It’s not unusual for a router to lose one device, while still working with others.

If that doesn’t work it might be a signal problem. Where I live every house has wireless Internet, and our patio homes are very close together. From my computer I can see a dozen different networks in addition to my own. If a neighbor has installed WiFi, and it’s close to the room your machine is in, there might be enough interference to cause problems. Temporarily take the machine into the same room as the router and see if it will connect. If it does then you know it’s a signal problem. If it still doesn’t work then try reconfiguring the network settings on the machine. If it still won’t work, take the machine to your dealer if possible. I think some are operating with limited number of people at a time, all wearing a mask. Try connecting to the dealer’s WiFi. If that works you know it’s either your computer or the network. If your router came from the company that provides your Internet, then you could place a service call.

WiFi is tricky, because it is essentially a radio. The antenna is embedded inside the machine, surrounded by an aluminum chassis. This inhibits the signal quite a bit. Other things in your home can also disrupt it, such as cordless phones (landline, not cellular) and microwaves. It can take time to find and resolve these issues.


Re: formating a usb

Jim Stutsman
 

USB flash drives are not forever. There is a chemical process used to store the data, and each cell has a “life” of 100,000 - 200,000 write operations before it quits working. The drives are designed to spread the use over all the cells to maximize the usable life, but when it hits the limit it’s like an expired battery. Try a different flash drive, preferably a new one. If it also fails you may have a machine issue, but it’s far more likely to be the drive.


WiFi

Joanne Smoker
 

After many years of using the AcuDesign with my 15K I can no longer send designs via wifi to my machine.  Lost the connectivity.  When I try to send, the circle keeps going around and I can't access my 15K. It does not acknowledge my machine.  Plenty of bars on machine and ipad.  I called Janome and they promised to get a technician to get back to me. That was well over a week ago.  Am I too impatient or being ignored.  It is so long since I used a USB to transfer designs I will have to look up the directions!


Re: Oiling my 500e

SewingRose
 

I would if it was my machine.  In fact, when I bought my 500E and it arrived in the original sealed box, I started to stitch one of the small built-in designs and quickly noticed the machine 'sounded' dry, so I did the oil/clean as per the owners manual and stitched the same built-in design with great results, the machine ran much smoother and has never skipped a beat since.  Deciding to do this oil/clean prevented future problems as I discovered a very long piece of white poly thread tangled in the machine, around the bobbin winding spindle (I use prewounds exclusively, so not mine) and through the top thread guide to the takeup lever and the end of this thread was then trapped in the needle bar.  It took some time to remove all the fragments and I know it was from factory 'testing' because I hadn't used white thread during that test stitchout, I had used dark green with a bright yellow prewound bobbin.  I placed the pieces of this white thread on the table and estimate it was well over a metre long.

Have you attempted to stitch a design?  what did it sound like?  If you do a test stitchout, use light and dark thread in top and bottom as this allows you to spot any tension and stitch formations problems easier.  Don't have the manual in front of me just now, but it's in the last few pages.  Hope this helps?  ;-)


formating a usb

Joyce Daniel
 

Use to, I could pop my usb into my 12000 and the correct folder for designs would just “show up”. For some reason this is no longer happening so I can not load designs into it to embroider. Is there something I need to “do” to get this folder again?

Thanks!! Joyce in GA

Roberta, I have the 15000 and the 11000 updated to v.3.10. To the best of my knowledge, the bobbin cases for the 15000 fit the 11000 and vice versa. 

Here’s an ad from a Janome dealer that says it fits both, and some other Janome machines, too:

Oiling my 500e

Hello all, 
My Janome 500e has been idle and covered with its plastic cover for 1 full year. Should I consider oiling it or any other precautionary care before starting her up? 
Thanks.

Re: Download designs to MAC

Mattes
 

Hi Linda,

My specific question, I guess, would be if I’ve created a design in AcuEdit , can I move it into Stitch buddy so it will show up and be shared to my other iPad?
I have to admit that I‘m not very experienced with AcuEdit. Actually I have version v3.21.001 installed, but hardly use it at all. AcuEdit seems to run a very closed shop with regards to its designs: Other apps are not allowed to access its local storage and it provides neither any sharing option nor supports iCloud storage.

This having said the only way I would envision exporting designs out of AcuEdit is a transfer via your machine - unfortunately I cannot test it myself, maybe someone else can confirm or correct me?

Long story short: There is not a thing StitchBuddy could do to access AcuEdit‘s designs without Janome‘s app cooperating...

Re: ISO 6600 Janome feet

Cheryl Paul
 

Hi Martie in CA
Here is the website page of the MC6600P.  It lists all the accessories that come with the machine and also optional ones that you can purchase.  You have a very good machine, but the Acufeed feet are very different from the machines that have a built-in system that are made today.
You really should talk to a dealer about the feet.  They didn’t used to be very expensive, but I’ve noticed all sorts of things went up considerable in price since COVID-19 came upon us.

There are several feet, the regular straight stitch foot, a foot that allows for zigzag and decorative stitches, a 1/4” foot and a stitch in the ditch foot.  I gave my machine to my daughter in law with all those feet minus the straight stitch foot (I wouldn’t have used it so didn’t buy it).  That machine is about 15 years old and still working like a trooper, with her children also using it to sew.

You will enjoy sewing on that machine and hopefully you find the feet that you need.

Actually, the 6600 was the first machine to use the built in Acufeed system.  This is the foot style that goes with it.

Re: MC11000se

Lyn Quine
 

I don’t know if it would work with the 11000, but I would suggest if you’re going to mess with the tension on a bobbin case you buy another so that you have the correct tension in one and Mark accordingly.  No default setting for the case so difficult to return it to the correct position.  If I have a problem with the bobbin showing on top, I change the top tension, at least I can return it to default.  Personally it would be a last resort for me to mess with the bobbin tension.  


if you want a yellow dot I would suggest you ask a Janome dealer or email Janome and ask if it would work in your machine.

Second that, Meridee!

There is no need for any additional software to transfer embroideries to a USB pen drive: Simply drag 'n' drop with the macOS Finder will do. Unfortunately Janome machines are somehow picky about the USB folder structure and design location, so this PDF might help. StitchBuddy - as Jim mentioned - guides you selecting the correct location and is adding preview and editing capabilities to your Mac. There is a free trial available to check it out - and for transparency: I'm the developer of StitchBuddy...
