Re: Auto threader for Janome 11k special edition

The part you need is item 15 in the photo. We used to order batches of them. However at some point they stopped sending the individual plates and instead sent parts 14 & 15 already assembled. That made changing easier, since you can just pop it off by pressing down on it. You still have to loosen the screw to line up the hook with the needle eye either way. If you do find the plate by itself you'll need to remove the screws. Before doing that, put a piece of fabric over the arm of the machine to avoid the screws taking a dive down into it. It's a tedious process, but with care and patience you'll manage it. You'll most likely need to find a sympathetic Janome dealer to order the parts, which are inexpensive. Part numbers are listed below the picture.
