    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 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.

    My guess is $75 because that's what they would charge around here to look at it. Hope it's cheaper for you...

    Sorry,

    I believe my repairman said something about my part would be $90, and if you have someone look at it and put that part in . . . Maybe,it would be a small extra fee and even it out to $100.

    It would be great if you have a cheaper bill and a quick return! I would miss mine too!

    Best of luck!

    I'm not going to quote a price, but I dropped my machine off today because I did something to the bobbin area. :cry: :cry: $80.00 just to drop it off.

    I don't know what it will cost to fix it, but for me the thread cutter is priceless :)

    I'd say $99, mine is broken but didn't take it to the dealer yet. Let us know.

    I am enjoying this little guessing game. My baby is in the shop now and hubby is picking her up tomorrow after his meeting. The repairman/shop owner is returning it tomorrow if he has to order parts and we'll send it in when the parts arrive. As much as I miss the cutter I can't have the machine gone for two weeks.

    It might be awhile before I announce the winner, but I have already picked out the prize!

    Keep those guesses coming! Closest without going over!

    It would be wonderful if it were still covered under warranty! I've had lots of trouble with mine on my Baby Lock. :? Best of luck to you.

    I am going to guess "no charge" because I'm hoping they look in and say "Oh, this gizmo needs a little assist - there, that's that", no charge!
