It sounds like you might have a piece of thread in the bobbin case. Locate and remove the thread. Hopefully that will make it so the machine no longer finds the broken thread.

Hello, Sauban -

The needles you will use will depend upon the kind of sewing you will be doing and the fabric on which you are sewing.

The Instruction Manual for the Janome Memory Craft 6000 lists the needle sizes on page 22 of the manual:

The website SewingParts Online sells a variety of needles for use with the Janome Memory Craft 6000:
(TinyURL link): https://tinyurl.com/yb3oy2wo
The company is located in the USA.

If you do not reside in the USA, then, I suggest you use your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc.) and the following search phrase, with quotation marks as shown to find needles for your machine from a business in your country of residence:
Janome "Memory Craft 6000" needles

Best wishes.

Janome has the manual for the JD1818 on their retired machines site: https://www.janome.com/support/retired-machine-manuals/ . The current link to the manual is https://www.janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/retired/other-models/inst-book-jd1818.pdf . If you prefer a printed copy, you can purchase it here: https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-janome-jd1818.aspx? . Alternatively, put the PDF from Janome's site on a USB flash drive. Take it to a local print shop (Kinkos, UPS store) and they'll print and bind the file for you.

I hope this helps.

Humm, sounds like the needle change sensor is telling you that the machine is not properly centered on ANY needle position. It is between needles. There should be a knob to turn that move the head from needle to needle. once the needle position has been centered.

when I pay for the CDKeys on M8X.com, how can I get it? and how to use it?

Janome Sewing... | Answered on Dec 18, 2018

So far I haven't found a free download of the manual. The 802 wasn't listed on the Janome Manual page, https://www.janome.com/support/manuals/ , or the retired machine page (link at the bottom right of the preceding link). I did find two sites, http://www.sewingshop.com/802MANUALPDF.aspx and https://ifixmachines.com/index.php/component/hikashop/product/2406-janome-802-sewing-machine-manual that sell the manual as a PDF. If you want a hard copy, you'll have to print the manual yourself. Alternatively, take the PDF on a USB drive to a print shop (Kinkos, UPS store) and pay them to print it for you.

I hope this helps.

You can download the Artistic Designer program from Janome, https://www.janome.com/products/software/ . However, it will not work unless you have purchased a license key from a dealer. For other Janome software, only updates for supported software are available: https://www.janome.com/support/general-support/software-support/ . You'll either need the program to have been installed on your computer or to put the CD in an optical disc drive. If your current computer doesn't have an optical disc drive, you can get a USB optical drive from Amazon or any other shop that has electronic/computer parts. USB DVD read/write drives are under $50 even at most shops that don't discount accessories. You may need the USB type C (M) to USB type A (female) adapter with some of the newest models (laptops and tablets).

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the name and version of your software for further assistance. If your software is no longer supported by Janome, there are some third-party embroidery editing software packages. One is https://www.embird.net/ .
