Yes, My dealer also told me that the remote thread cutting pedal attaches to a remote thread cutter port. i wonder if the port is on the larger foot pedal that I also ordered so that the remote thread cutting pedal would work on the MC12000. This is my first Janome and there is no mention of it in its manual.

Does anyone know how the new remote thread cutting pedal will work on the MC12000 (how it looks like, where it connects on the MC12000, etc.)? There is nothing specifically on it on any Janome site or even how it will work on the MC8900QCP.
Thanks!

You should also change the needle. A dull or burred needle will cause all sorts of trouble. If this doesn't resolve the situation, please provide more detail, such as what type of fabric you are using, what stabilizer and what thread. Keep in mind that very short satin stitches (1.3mm or less) will loop when using a 14 (red tip) needle. That's because the needle, at 1.4mm, is wider than a stitch of 1.3mm or less, so both ends of the stitch are in the same hole. This will make a loop.

Hi Norma,

Have you slowed down the speed of your machine? That may help.

Remote Thread Cutting Pedal

Hi, Thanks for trying to help but the problem is there is no folder called "Program Files(x86)". There is only my original "Program Files" folder. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice but still no "Program Files(x86)".


Re: AcuFil Tool Kit

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

You won't have "Program Files(X86)" unless you are running a 64-bit operating system like Windows 7. Otherwise you look in "Program Files".

I can't take credit for that - thanks to jsm1144 for the tip. Seems like a little bit of a fail for the machine to loon out when a connected computer goes offline, but at least now you have a fix.

Re: AcuFil Tool Kit

When you open Program files (x86) there should be a file in that folder that says Janome.  Click on the Janome file and in there should be a folder called Acufil.  Your files for the Acufil are in that file.\\
