12000 embroidery arm

sscharra <sscharra@...>
 

I tried to embroider with the 12000, the arm would not move into the correct position. After rebooting and putting the embroidery unit on and off several times it finally went into position. But when the embroidery wanted to go back to another position I had a horirible gringing noise.

Anybody having problems with the Embroidery arm?

new open toe foot for the 12000

sscharra <sscharra@...>
 

I hear there is a new open toe foot for the 12000. Anyone else hear this.

Anyother new hoops of feet out there?

You may have made a discovery. The 11000 had an available external CD-ROM drive that allowed designs to be read from CD. There is nothing in the 12000 to indicate that it would support a CD, even after the first update. However you seem to have made it work by just plugging the CD drive into the USB port. I'm at a conference this week, but will check it out when I get home.

She also can use a usb stick. However she was wanting to clear off some of the saved designs from her computer but have them readily available to her machine.

Hope that make sense or at least a little bit.

My question is this (the Cd reader box) something that is available for the 12000 or perhaps could be in the future? Zoe

Re: Janome MC1100SE presser foot P embroidery error

Hi Jim thanks for your reply I managed to fix the sensor myself as I found a MC11000 Service Manual online & followed the step by step instructions in there & it worked a treat. Thanks for your help :-)

That's a common problem on the 11000, especially new ones. There is a sensor that needs to be adjusted under the top cover. It's simple, but your dealer needs to do it.

Hello I have only just got my machine & I have an error message already :-( I tried embroidery for the first time today but I had a reoccurring error message saying attach presser foot 'P' even though I had that fooy already attached correctly. I checked & rechecked every possible setting & everything was right but it still showed the presser foot 'P' error which I could not over-ride at all so the machine would not even start! Has anyone else had this issue & if so how did you fix it? Thank you Emma :-)

Re: flat fell seam foot?

gbmko
 

thanks for the link! I never press, and never trim...I start out by having the bottom fabric (wrong sides together) extend out a bit, take a few stitches, and then bring the bottom extension up through the slot, and over the division on the foot, and the shape of the foot folds the fabric over. then lay the fabric flat, right side up, and do the same thing with the fold you just made...perfect evey time! I did notice on the tutorial of using the foot, that she has the same issue I have with my Bernina 165...the bobbin and top stitches don't look the same, no matter how much adjustment I make. I have a very narrow flat fell seam foot for my old Bernina 830, which I use almost exclusively because the stitch is so nice on both sides. My janome 12000 also has a beautiful stitch both top and bottom, which is why I want that foot!

I do not understand how I would use the jean a ma jig gadget as a substitue for this foot. Can someone explain that? Thanks. Barbara Jean

I was curious about this foot and googled it. This site has two pict tutorial.One with flat fell foot and one how to make flat fell seam with out foot. There didn't seem to be much difference in number of steps to make with or without foot. Here is the one without the foot.

Re: Sewing Machine Cabinet

I bought a new Horn cabinet that has an electric lift (no more pushing and pulling on the machine to raise and/or lower it), it's just like a ququilters dream with the big extension on the back. In addition there is a plate you put on the drawer when you pull it out that gives you lots of room to the left and in front of the machine. I LOVE it!!

Since you can plug your laptop into the machine, put a CD in it and you can read it in Link-So much easier and clearer than the CD reader.

Thanks Jim, that would be a wonderful addition if it was possible. The designs did not have to be put into a special folder or the CD formatted. We put the CD into the 'CD reader' first, which was hooked to her machine and turned on. We checked the CD by going into 'my computer' and looked at the CD it had nothing on it. So I presume no special folder needed. Big plus I would think.
Will look forward to hearing what you find out. Zoe

Re: embroidery compared to Bernina

Alice Cromer <acromer@...>
 

How does the stitch quality of the 12000's embroidery compare to the Bernina 830? I have found that the Janome MB4 has better stitch quality than the 12000.

Thanks,

Jim,
I think Zoe meant the Brother machine used the CD drive. I’ve just tried one on my 12000 and it came up with an error message “ the USB flash drive cannot be used”. I had previously used the same CD drive successfully on the 11000.
