Janome Memory Craft 9000
by D. Reed
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?
