I have a Janome SX2122 sewing machine. It powers up but pressing the foot pedal, all the red lights light up then go back to only one red light. Nothing otherwise works although it sounds as if its trying to. Any ideas?

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
