Question about Janome Sewing Machines
I had just changed out the bobbin during an embroidery project when this happened. I have turned the machine off multiple times (even overnight) and the problem has not resolved.
Try taking the bobbin out and see if the machine will turn by hand movements using the flywheel or running the motor, you will feel and resistance if there is any but do not force the machine! if the machine turns without getting stuck then try a different bobbin as this might indicate a problem with the bobbin. I am also assuming you have placed the bobbin facing the correct way meaning the thread which is an easy mistake to make. Next, try eliminating different parts of the machine like turning it on different settings or without a needle, open the front part of the machine where you would normally replace the light bulb and watch as you hand turn the machine for any knocks or places of resistance, also unscrew the very backplate at the flywheel as the machine is usually connected by a rubber belt going from the motor to the machine and check that it is not caught up or broken. On older machines that did not have an onboard computer made it more easy to solve problems because if there is a problem the machine wouldn't just shut down, So elimination should solve the issues.

This is a protection mechanism of the machine when it believes there is too much strain on the motor.
Check the hook race/bobbin area...for lint or thread jam....also check the couterweighted cam that drives the needle up & down, as ofter thread will catch and be wound around the shaft near the take up lever.....open the door on the Left (Face Plate) and where the shaft comes through the body is where to look, move the handwheel slowly and watch for threads....remove them gently by unwinding, be patient as they may be well jammed.........DO NOT pull and break them !!
If you are convinced there is nothing jammed & if all appears clear, there are 2 possible scenarios, and I am afraid you are not likely to be too pleased by either of them.........please don't shoot the messenger.
The DC motor is failing, or
The "A" board has problems.
Janome have a 5 year warantee on the Circuit board and will replace it if it fails within this period.
This is a complex and valuable machine and may need the services of a well qualified Janome Trained Service Technician, not just any old hack repairman.
Protect your investment.
Best Wishes and hopes it's just the thread jam.

I've been having the same problem with the error message. I finally took my machine to the shop Monday. They called me a couple hours later and said I needed a new motor. I picked it up this afternoon. I've only sewn on it a few minutes, but no messages. That hasn't happened in a long time. I'll test it some more tonight when I do some embroidery. It does sound smoother. We'll see!

SOURCE: my material gets stuck in
check and see if the feed dogs are above the needle plate when the needle is in the upright position, then check and see if you have tension in the upper and lower tension units, check this by putting the foot down and gently pulling on the upper thread and pull the lower thread up through the plate and see if it pulls easy or hard if hard then it is good one last thing are the feed dogs in the raised position
