I’m fascinated by this conversation about the knee lifter as the way my machine is situated it is actually in the way some times! You might just try adjusting the position of the machine or your chair and see if that helps. It might also be the height of the table or cabinet your machine is sitting on/in…
Does anyone know anything more about this adjustable knee lifter and whether it works (fits) on the 15000 and whether it indeed means you can get the point to push against further to the left?
It would be good to see pictures of both comparing. I'll have to have a search on the web.
The knee lever that comes with the 15000 actually is the adjustable one. It allows a small amount of movement by loosening the screw at the end that attaches to the machine. It does not allow for a lot of adjustment, so the pool noodle fix is often still needed. Previous posts have also referred to the knee lift socket itself being adjusted on a different Janome model, but I don't think this is possible on the 15000 due to the way it is attached.
