Good catch Lucy! There are 3 PDF links on the page. The 1st and 3rd will open, but the 2nd one just presents a bunch of coded PDF information. To view the 2nd page right click on the link and choose the download option. Save it as anything, but be sure to include the PDF extension. This download is a 2-page brochure.

Here's a link to the new 9900 that is working as of this morning.
http://www.acesewvac.com/janome-memory-craft-9900.html
Don't know how long it will be up once Janome discovers it.
Looks quite impressive but probably not enough for me to replace my 12000.
I made a pdf file of the page if anyone is interested.

Re: Noisy embroidery arm

I have found that keeping my Acrylic extension table attached to my machine has made a world of difference in not only my embroidery but for keeping my hoop level.  The AQ (quilting hoop) has the magnets which are much heavier than the ones for our SQ hoop and can cause weight on the hoop and arm.   
 
You might want to take your arm off of the machine to be sure that nothing is interfering with it perhaps a thread or something else may be interfering and then slide the arm back on.
 
You should not hesitate to take your machine to your dealer it may be something minor and trying to use it as it is may create more problems in the long run.

Janome Memory Craft 9900 Sewing & Embroidery Machine

As unique as you!

The Memory Craft 9900 includes 175 built-in embroidery designs, most of which are brand new! You'll also find 200 built in stitches with a maximum width of 9mm, 6 automatic buttonholes, 3 built-in lettering fonts plus 2 and 3 letter monograms, and two standard hoops (5.5" x 5.5" and 6/7" x 7.9"). Many of the 200 built-in stitches can be combined, elongated, adjusted in width and length, and even mirrored or fl ipped horizontally. In addition, the machine has an advanced editing package for embroidery, including the ability to rotate, resize, duplicate, flip, arc, monogram, color grouping, drag & drop, zoom, and tracing. All of these features add up to an amazing range of creative control.

Great design is in the details. Janome engineers have found a way to offer large, solid, professional style embroidery and still keep the embroidery unit as compact as possible. No other brand can offer so much embroidery space, with such a small machine footprint. The attachable embroidery unit snaps right into the back of the machine � you don't have to worry about giant sewing spaces to accommodate a bulky attachment! Plus, this innovative embroidery unit placement means you can use the free arm, even when sewing embroidery. It's the kind of smart engineering that Janome owners have long known to expect!
One Step� Plate Converter

Using the right tools at the right time is important in sewing. When using lightweight fabrics, or piecing quilts, a straight stitch needle plate makes all the difference. Our One Step� Plate Converter allows you to easily switch and use the perfect plate for your project. Simply press a button to release one plate; then snap a new one in place � it takes only seconds, with no screwdrivers required! This system also includes a sensor that will only allow a straight stitch to be sewn when the Straight Stitch Needle Plate is in place, so you never have to worry about breaking a needle! Both needle plates are included as standard accessories.
Sewing Applications

The Sewing Applications feature makes it easy for beginners as well as advanced sewists to find the stitch for the technique they are using. There are 12 different applications available for techniques like gathering, rolled hem, basting, applique, patchwork and more.
Bobbin Thread Sensor

When embroidering or sewing large projects, it is sometimes difficult to keep track of how much bobbin thread is left. The bobbin thread sensor alerts you when your bobbin thread is running low � so you're never caught in the middle of a seam or embroidery color. The Memory Craft 9900 has an advanced sensor system which allows you to set the level of sensitivity for the alert � customize it for large scale embroidery projects, when you want to make sure you always have plenty of bobbin thread, or small projects with short seams. This feature is also very helpful for sewing with different thread thicknesses. You can increase the sensitivity when using a thick bobbin thread, and lower it for thin threads.
Linear Motion Embroidery�

Janome pioneered the home embroidery market with an X-Y movement in the 1990s with the Memory Craft 8000. As the world's largest manufacturer of industrial desktop robots, we implemented and perfected this technology. This expertise now comes back to sewing. The Embroidery carriage on the Memory Craft 9900 contains a thicker axis on the X carriage for greater strength and improved stability while a double linear motion guide on the Y carriage provides greater stability and more precise movement. Carefully selected parts and precise assembly process control contribute to quality advancement.
AcuGuide� Cloth Guide

Now your seam allowances can be as accurate as our precision embroidery system. Simply snap the cloth guide into onto the carriage arm of the embroidery mechanism and enter your desired seam allowance. The guide features a long; raised lip, for perfectly guiding your fabric, and seams can be set between 1/16" to the left of the needle to 5 �" to the right of the needle. The carriage moves every 0.1mm for finely-tuned settings.
Jam Proof Top Loading Full Rotary Hook System

Smooth, quiet operation while stitches form perfectly and consistently. This configuration also makes changing the bobbin fast and easy. And the full rotary system will never thread lock.
Quick Change Face Panels

To be really creative, you have to be in the right frame of mind. The Memory Craft 9900 comes with three Quick Change Face Panels so your machine can match your mood.
New Generation Fast Processor

The new generation of processor inside the Memory Craft 9900 (the brains of the machine) is four times faster than its predecessor. You get everything done more quickly.
High Resolution Touch Screen

Our high resolution touch screen contains large dimensions and vivid colors, so it's much easier to see what you're creating.
Machine Setting Personalization

Many of the machine's functions can be personalized in the Set Mode of the machine. This means that the sewist can refine machine settings to their preferences, and includes items such as background color, thread cutting, bobbin sensor sensitivity, and more. It also includes popular options like Favorite Stitch, which allows the user to save edits on specific stitches.

Re: Noisy embroidery arm

With the machine stopped, check the embroidery arm for wiggle. It should be rigid and not move at all. If there is perceptible wiggling have your dealer check for loose mounting screws inside. This should take very little time and effort.

Re: Skipping stitches

Anne <csarina43@...>
 

Thanks Jim,

We are away for the next few days but when I get back I will be calling the shop and take it back in. I have had more trouble with this machine than any other I have owned.


Re: Skipping stitches

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

As the needle is going down, the thread should be tight against the back of it. If you are seeing a loop, then there will be problems for sure. If you are stopping with the presser foot up, turn that off. Then, when you see the large loop, stop immediately and pull on the thread just above the needle. If it pulls easily, then you have a tension problem and it needs to go back to the technician. If it is tight, then the check spring may not be doing its job, and again it needs to see the tech. A problem like this that is easily reproduced should be easy for the service technician to diagnose and correct.

The needle threader works so it must be in far enough, cleaned out the bobbin to make sure there was nothing there. I have noticed sometimes when the thread is going from the needle down into the fabric a rather large loop seems to appear as if the thread is not being held tightly enough in the discs.

The machine has just come back from being serviced so it should be fine.

Re: Janome 9900

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

Not at all! You (and now I) are not Janome dealers, so we're not bound to Janome's rules. And this happens with every single Janome product release. When the 11000 came out it was supposed to be a big secret until the release date, but a website in Australia posted it early. The argument for keeping it quiet is that dealers need time to become familiar with the product so they can be prepared to sell it on the release date. This is a weak argument, because you can't really learn about a product you don't have, and most dealers don't have the time to pore over literature. I've always thought that Janome should release new products like Apple does. They announce the product, and word spreads like a California wildfire. In many cases the last line is "... and it's available in stores now."

In the pics, the bobbin itself looks the same, but they have that little channel doodad to run the bobbin thread through on the left side, like Brother/Babylock have.

Bummer about the hoops. Thanks for replying though.

I wanted to send this to a friend and tried the link this morning before sending it to her but it is coming up "not found".   Could someone else try it so I am sure it is not my browser  ( Firefox)? 
Maybe Janome made them pull it down!   Sometimes they get rather picky about someone releasing things before they think it should be released.
