Janome Memory Craft 9000

by D. Reed
(Muncie, IN)

Purchased in 2000 and used infrequently because I have another Elna SU.

In 2009, upon my retirement, it began to malfunction, in which case, I took it to the repair shop. I was told that it was one of the circuit boards which cost $500.00. The cost of all 4 new circuit boards would be $1500.00 which I cannot afford. I am very disappointed in the service and longevity of such an expensive toy.

My Elna SU is about 30 yrs old and never had any problems.

Note from the Editor: This has got to be so frustrating for you. To finally have the time to enjoy sewing and quilting, and then have the machine go KAPUT! like that. I know I had to replace a cracked foot pedal on my Viking Design I and it was over $100.

Have you written to Janome to see if they can offer some alternatives? Or maybe take the machine in in trade?

Readers, if you have experience with this machine you are invited to share them using the 'Comment' link found just below.

Thank you!

My Janome MC 9000 is the best machine EVER! The smoothness of the stitches and ease of use cannot be beat by any of other machine. I have looked to upgrade and even test drove many other machines. No Can Do, none of them can even compare. If you get the chance to get one GET IT.
