20 Most Recent Janome 6260QC Computerized Sewing Machine Questions & Answers

Here's Janome LO error;

LO: Replace the foot controller.
  1. Check for a tight or stuck clutch by the hand wheel.
  2. The machine may be jammed. Remove the timing belt to locate whether the bind is on the upper shaft or lower shaft. If it is the upper shaft, there may be thread caught in the take-up lever or crank pin. If the lower shaft is binding, check hook clearance, hook backlash. Check the lower shaft rear bushing for any black 'gunk'. If there is, replace the lower shaft and rear bushing.
  3. Clean the sensor on the DC motor and check if the shield plate on the motor is not loose or hitting the sensor. If either the sensor or shield plate is damaged, replace the motor.
  4. Check the upper shaft sensor. Make sure the shield plate is going perfectly thru the middle of the sensor. Replace the sensor and/or shield plate if damaged.
  5. If you still get the error, replace the DC Motor or upper shaft sensor (in this order).
My first thought is if you're running nearly non-stop for an hour the motor is overheating. Not sure what the maintenance schedule is for this machine <?>. May need a good cleaning/lube. Then foot pedal, then other.

New needle, clean under bobbin case and look at this.......Looping thread underneath is a top thread tension issue...

I have written a 5 page illustrated Tutorial on overcoming this problem....HERE

I've had the Lo come on my screen of my sewing machine also, but normally when I turned it off it corrected the jam up.
Lo- A button is pressed when the machine halts due to a overload
wait 15 seconds to recover
if thread jamming causes the overload, remove the tangled thread
check the bobbin area for lint & loose threads
also check to see if the bobbin is warped
check you needle to see if it's bent-roll on a flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if it's blunt it makes a popping sound when going thru fabric
let me know if these suggestions help
