Shes Back!!!!!!! She's Working!!!!!

I got a call a while ago that my sewing machine is ready. What great news, I have been without it over 3 weeks and am definately having withdrawal. I was doing my applique stitch and the machine just stopped running, electricity was on but machine was DEAD and I couldn't turn the top wheel. I couldn't begin to imagine what was wrong. Took it to the sewing center where I bought it, ( its an authorized Janome repair shop). The owner picked it up, plugged it in and went to turn wheel that makes needle go up and down and said, my god when was this serviced last? I said never and she explained the cam shaft across top must be serviced 12 - 18 months. It would take week to 10 days as they were busy. After 10 days I called, was told they were waiting for a new cam or something like that. well I lucked out as the day they were going to work on the machine the Janome rep was there and looked the machine over and told them to put in a new motor. He saw how clean I kept bobbin and sewing area and believed I didn't know about the rest so gave it to me, no cost. I only have to pay the normal service cost of 85 dollars. Can't wait to get it back. I am very appreciative as Pat C lent me her old Singer work horse, so I did a little sewing, but I want mine!!!!!!

  2. worth a try! LOL I clean bobbin case and all that area under the needle once a week, I really didn't know about the rest. I do now and believe me it will be serviced around every 15 months. I oil as needed but check it weekly also.
