    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.
    Here is the skinny! They will probably charge at least $35 to look at it and maybe more. They will apply that to the charge for parts and labor required to fix it, which will probably be heaven only knows how much, but it won't matter because you've got a great machine and if it can be repaired, you will get it repaired because you want it back!

    I'm going to guess $112 will get her home and into your sewing room. froggyintexas

    Depending on the brand of machine anywher between $35.00 and $60.00 dollars. There is usually a 10 to 20% markup, depending on the shop.

    I think you pay a higher price in Canada for everything but I have a Janome 6500 as well and I have had to have it in the shop a couple of times and it is still causing problems. One shop was to call me back after they got in touch with the factory. Never heard a word. I didn't have to pay on that one. Another guy looked at it and cleaned it up-lots of lint and thread in the mechanism. The problem was that after you took your foot off the foot pedal it woul continue to run. Well it is doing it again and I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I do have a Jem Gold back up so I am not totally without a machine.

    My guess is $95. No matter what machine or what's wrong with it, my repair guy starts out at $95. From my FW to my computerized machine it always starts out at $95 and goes up from there.

    Just picked my machine up becasue the power went off. Wrong fuse! Since I have only taken it to authorized Janome service shops, I wonder who did it! That cost $35.00 for that and recalbrating my screen. It was in the shop in December for the recalibration and that cost $70.00. The prices are all over the place, so I wish wish you well. I have no idea what your repair will run.

    I guess I am lucky because my repairs sre free via my hubby. It amazes me how cheap the parts and how expensive labor is. Makes you want to take a sewing machine repair class.

    If you have a mechanical machine (not electronic) we have the virtual vintage sewing machine shop here on this board to learn how to service your own machines. Billy and helpers can show you how to take your machine totally apart and re-assemble it so it is all oiled and ready to sew! Check it out on the main page at the very bottom. There is so much we can do ourselves on the older vintage machines.

    Don't like to be a kill joy, but I think it will be about $100.00. Used to know a lady who had the same thing go wrong, don't remember what she was given for a price. But she didn't get it fixed. Good luck and I hope I am WAY OFF and it's only $10.00. Holding a good thought for you

    Did you know if you ran the thread down the needle's groove it will go right in the needle's hole if the thread has a clean cut?

    Depends on your repair guy. My friend was quoted $500 to repair a machine, and told she would be better off replacing it with a new one.I took it to my repair guy and he charged $40 to clean out the lint and it works perfectly...

    I'm guessing around $175 for service and parts. I do hope that it isn't this much though. Best of luck.

    I've seen one in my supply catalog for around $20 + shipping. This is a side cutter which can be attached to your machine. In fact, I have one. This makes you project look like it has been sergered. Is that what you need?
