Hello,

I've been sewing all day and no problems. Until now, I started to sew a zipper and lowered the pressor foot and received the beep and message Lower Pressor Foot.

Troubleshooting done:
-Powered machine off & on several times
-Rethreaded it
-Cleaned the dust bunnies out.
-L-ooked at the inner section and the gadgets are working for the up & down motion for the pressor foot.
-Switched stitching style
-Raised and lowered Feed Dogs

Any other thoughts ...wisdom to share????

Thank you!
Ta'melle

Hi Ta'melle,

I think that a sensor is not working correctly and a trip to your dealer may be what you will need to do to correct the problem. This has happened to me on my MC11000 and it was because the sensor telling the machine that the foot is lowered was not working correctly.

Thank you Cheryl,

That's what I was afraid of. Unfortunately, the ONLY Certified Janome Dealer is NOT certified on this model MC 9500, ONLY the 11000 model. I purchased this product in Portland, OR & I live in Boise, ID. Guess I'll have to figured something out.

That happened to me on my 10001. I raised the presser foot up like you were going to put bulky stuff under it. It worked for awhile; but, eventually had to have it fixed.

Hi Ta'melle,

Your dealer should be able to fix your machine if he is a certified technician (or has a tech hired) for the MC11000. As the MC9500 is much less technical than the 11000 I would think he could fix it for you or do the adjustment needed. I'd ask again if I were you.

Have you checked to see if you have threaded the machine correctly? Also take off the needle plate and see if the bobbin case is seated where it should be - it may have shifted forward and this means a new bobbin case and perhaps taking it to your dealer for a check-up to see that the timing is correct. Also, knots happen if the thread comes out of the take-up lever in the upper thread path. If none of this is wrong you may need to take it in for a check-up. Oh, while you have the needle plate off, clean out the bobbin area and put one (1) drop of sewing machine oil on the little felt in the middle of the bobbin case. Also try a different spool of thread and bobbin as well - just to rule that out as a problem.

Also check the top thread path, make sure the thread hasn't come out of the take up lever-that's what your symptom suggests

Any machine that has that sensor should be able to be fixed by a Janome tech no matter which machine he or she is "certified" in.
