    Does anyone know how much I should expect to spend on getting the automatic thread cutter fixed on my machine? Any guesses? want to make a guess and I will send a prize to the person who comes the closest! IS that allowed here?

    It is not working. Sounds like it is working but nothing moves inside.

    My machine, a Janome 6500 has never had a problem until now. I am really missing it! My hubby took it with him went he went for meetings in the city. It has been gone for 3 hours.

    I hope you get her back soon! I donít know what the price on this would be. So Iíll take a wild guess and say $25.

    $70, unless it's time for her annual checkup.

    I am guessing around $60. I had one for years and never had any problems. Did you maybe hit a pin or anything that could have gotten jammed into the mechanism? Will be waiting to see what the outcome is!

    I'm going to guess on the high side and go for $80. But I hope it's not that high and I hope you get her back before you go into withdrawal symptoms!

    Mine was in the shop not too long ago and they "said" they fixed the thread cutter for $6 by replacing the felt. lol It worked for about an hour....

    I hope your fix lasts longer than mine! I will guess $50. For your sake, I hope it is much less.

    I had mine repaired on my Ellisimo and it cost $68.00! So that's what I guess yours would be.

    Year before last, mine was $89 for the part, but my machine guy didn't charge me for it. I have an elna Quilter's Dream.
