    Got my Janome 6600P yesterday and played all day. I really am impressed with this machine, especially the acufeed system. It's quite spectacular. Very happy I got this.

    I have a small Janome and love it, can't imagine how exciting a large machine would be.

    Oh lucky you....I have one also and just love love it...ok until last night...sewing along on my flanell rag quilt and clang/bang/grind....OMG what is wrong...I threaded, changed the bobbin nope nothing still didn't work...got my book out and started the trouble shooting...It ended up that there was sooooooooooo much lint built up under the bobbin case...whoooo hoooo...followed the directions to take out bobbin case, cleaned really good, put bobbin case back exactly like it says (line up red marks) and Whala it worked...the rag quilt is on it's 2nd wash then into dryer...Yep it pays to read the back of the manual book....

    When you have the bobbin out, look down into the case and you'll see a little white wick kind of thingy. It likes a drop or two of oil to keep it moist! I read about that on the Yahoo Janome 6600 group. Mine had started to sound a little rough but it cleared right up after a good cleaning and a drop of oil.

    You have a wonderful machine, nothing compares to the 6600P in my book, nothing. Take care of it and it will probably be the last machine you need.

    I have the same one...had the same problem tonight...lots of shaking and clanging and had to clean it all out...I noticed it last night that there was tons of lint...I just finished sewing some big seat cushions and the fabric was a velour type so all that fuzz built up in there...

    Now here is another little note about something I learned the hard way...I will pass it on so nobody gets as frustrated as I did the other day...I was trying to do a zigzag/coverlock stitch on my cushions...too thick for the serger..so the night before I tried on and it was great...the following evening I switched the needle plate...to the one for quilting...it has a small hole for FMQ...and then of course I forgot about it and when I went to resume my zig zag it would sew for about 3 or 4 stitches and then not move...wasted an entire day....what really got my ticked is I called the store where I bought it and the clerk said "Bring it in there is something wrong with it." Well I knew that but I was hoping she could troubleshoot with me...she just had no time...so I left it until after dinner and then I went up to my sewing room with a fresh mind and went through all the steps and it finally hit me...then I called my sister...who has the same machine...and said..."You know that stupid FMQ needle plate we bought for the Janome?...don't try to zigzag with it....She had a good laugh...

    I have had mine for about 7yrs. It got sick this spring and cost $120.00 to fix it...it was 2 fuses. So a very simple fix for the workhorse and I truly love my Janome6600. I got a Viking while this one was being fixed and although it is a gorgeous machine, I prefer my 6600. So have fun and enjoy.

    After doing a lot of searching and comparison THIS will be the machine that I am buying...hopefully in April. The store where I picked out my current machine sells Janome, has classes and does the repair work. I have been very happy with my Elna but it just doesn't have the bells and whistles that I need/WANT for sewing quilts.

    I plan on going to the store in a few weeks and checking out everything...of course then I am going to want to bring it home with me. LOL But...I really do have to save the money to buy it rather than "throw it on the credit card".

    The 7700 has a freearm. That is why I ended up with that one. I had the 6600 but bought it back after several days and got the 7700. My husband bought it for me for Christmas without me..the dealer told him that if I did not like it I could trade up. So glad I did.
