I have the 8200. It’s because of fluff/thread caught in the cogs that drive the thread cutter. If you slide off your accessory tray, take off your needle plate and from the rear of free arm section remove the 2 screws there (see photo) The plastic top cover will I click and lift/slide off (gently). If you look from the end under the metal plate you can see 2 plastic cogs (wish I’d taken a photo) - the smaller black one will be jammed with fluff or thread. I turned if gently with my screw driver and brushed and scrubbed with a pipe cleaner every time I turned it. Lots of fluff came out. Plugged it in and turned it on .. it worked as normal. Good luck.

Usually because it needs cleaning, lubricating and the timing redone. Take it for professional service.

The Janome 6019QC has the reverse stitch button to the right of the threading path below the thread tension dial. The thread tension dial is under the top cover but the two points help triangulate the button. The reverse stitch button is shown as item 27 on the first illustration of the parts of the sewing machine in the manual (page 2 of the manual, page 4 of the PDF). Janome has the manual on the retired machine page: https://www.janome.com/support/retired-machine-manuals/ . The manual is in the right-hand column under the Other Machines heading. The current link to the manual is https://www.janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/retired/other-models/inst-book-6019qc.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Go to Yahoo or Google and type the name, model, and serial number and manual. You should get a list and you can copy it and print.

Janome has the manual for the Memory Craft 7500 on their retired machines support page: https://www.janome.com/support/retired-machine-manuals/ . Look under the Computer Models in the left-hand column. The Memory Craft 7500 is near the bottom of the list. The current link to the manual is https://www.janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/retired/computer/inst-book-mc7500-en.pdf . You can also find the manual at ManualsLib: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/866820/Janome-Memory-Craft-7500.html . Some sewing machine parts shops online will sell you a PDF or printed copy of the manual. (One shop with the manual is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-janome-mc7500.aspx? .)

I hope this helps.

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.

Make certain that your fabric is the same level and thickness all over and that there are no folds or creases anywhere on top or bottom.
If this continues you should have a technician look it over.
