Simple Fix for Janome E1 Error

Janome Sewing Machine FuseToday I am working on a customer’s Janome 6600. She brought it in because the machine was unusable. When turning it on, the screen said “E1 Error”, and it would not sew. Actually, it wouldn’t do anything.

The fix was quite simple. There is a fuse on the main board that needed to be replaced. This fuse is kind of a weird one, a 3.15A ~ 250V slow burn fuse. Unfortunately, to access the fuse required that a good portion of the sewing machine was disassembled. I’m only mentioning that because it’s not something that a person could do unless they had experience with sewing machine repair.

So, if you get this dreaded E1 error, don’t fret. We keep these fuses in stock, and can have you back to your sewing in a short amount of time.

I'm on the other side of the country, so I can only recommend going to Janome's website and using their dealer locator.

Fredy, tendrá que llevar la máquina a un distribuidor autorizado de Janome para el servicio. Estoy usando un traductor, así que me siento por problemas con la gramática.

Hi, I have just been given a Janome XC50 (it came without lead & foot controller & hadn't been used for some time) When I switched it on, the E1 error came up, but also a strong burning smell! Any suggestions (other than unplugging it, obviously!) could it be just the fuse? Many thanks, Anita

I've never heard of a blown fuse making a burning smell, but I suppose it could be. You really should take the machine to a qualified sewing machine technician.

I replaced the ceramic fuse and the clear fuse in my janome machine. Worked for a minute the thru the E1 code again. What else could b the problem

Might be a bind in the machine. Might be a bad motor.
