"Can this machine be mounted in an older sewing machine cabinet or is this only a portable sewing machine?"
Janome would make these machines for Sears. Unfortunately, Sears has discontinued having Janome make these machines for them, and Janome does not offer these machines anywhere else. So I've gotten as many as I can for my sewing school, for the students to use. But they are no longer available....

I am a hobby seamstress - making everything from simple kitchen curtains to wedding gowns. I've used many sewing machines and this is one of my favorites. I especially love the automatic needle threader. Truly a heavy duty workhorse. Excellent value, easy to use. One of the best investments I've ever made!Read More
I've had this machine for a couple of years now and it does way MORE than my skill level. I purchased it that way to hopefully advance my sewing skills. Although I haven't had time to learn about or use all the tricks this machine can do, for my simple sewing projects it has been easy to use. It's attractive looking, heavy in a sturdy way-but not too heavy and really easy to use. I still hope to take an intermediate sewing class and learn more about the many things this machine can do. It's awesome!!Read More
This is a really nice, light weight sewing machine. It works well and easy to use.Read More
I think I prefer mechanical over electrical. The machine was very easy to use and super quiet. However, I worried about whether it could handle heavier material. In the end, I replaced it with a heavy duty sewing machine.Read More
I am an experienced seamstress and sewing teacher. I own another Janome at 10x this price. I also own a top of the line Viking sewing and embroidery machine. I love this model! It was well worth the price. As others have mentioned, I like a mechanical machine for a back up. If the computers go down on my other machines, I am out of business until they can be fixed. This particular machine is easy to operate, sews beautifully, and even sounds great. You will not regret buying it. This is the best machine you can buy at this price point. It is certainly superior to any machine you could buy in a discount super store.Read More
I almost bought this exact machine, new, as a Kenmore for $100 more. When I discovered that the reconditioned Kenmore was sold as a Janome, I decided to give it a try. The machine arrived quickly and in excellent condition.. I tested all the features to make sure they worked correctly and was not disappointed. I have used it for over a month now and am delighted with it. What a great value - thank you Overstocked.com!Read More
This machine is as good as a new one. It sews smooth and quiet BUT it will not sew jeans. It doesn't have the power needed for that even tho it is listed as Heavy Duty. So........ if you want to sew anything besides jeans, I would recommend this reconditioned Janome. I feel like I got a good deal regardless.Read More
A friend of mine has this model and I liked it so much I purchased one for me and my sister. I have not had any problems, though the button hole isn't my favorite. It sews smoothly and the stitches are great. To date I have had no tension or other problems with this machine. One reviewer mentioned these were Kenmores. These models were actually sold under the Kenmore name at Sears but are Janome made. When Sears discontinued this model they were sent back and "refurbished", they literraly just removed the Kenmore label and put the Janome label on. Most of the units are brand new off the shelf, though one of the two I purchased had some scratches on the plate which indicates it was either used and returned or was a floor model, but it works like a charm.Read More
I am a quilter and novice seamstress. I bought this machine after my crappy Kenmore finally gave out after 10 years of abuse. This machine is SO smooth! It is sturdily built, easy to use, and of high quality. Perhaps I'm just really impressed after "making do" with my Kenmore for so long, but I actually look forward to learning more about sewing because this machine opens up so many options with the craft that I couldn't do on my Kenmore! I was skeptical about the price (I'm cheap, I'll admit that), and I wasn't sure whether a refurbished machine would meet my standards, but I am really pleased with the machine and I can't find anything that would set it apart from a new machine. If you''re on the fence about purchasing this machine, I would suggest that you take the plunge. You'd be hard pressed to find something of this caliber or better in this price range.Read More
