Jeeves has officially been gone for 3 weeks now--not counting the earlier two weeks. So yesterday I called my dealer, and the repair guy said the part is still on back order because they're having to make it.
I bought Jeeves in 2006. I got a good deal on Jeeves because they were phasing him out as the newer version--the 955e--was coming out, which doesn't seem to exist any more either. The repair guy (yeah, the same one who doesn't check his work) said that they haven't had this problem before. So my question is: if they haven't had this problem before, then somewhere there should be a nice full box of spare parts if they haven't needed them. Unless, as soon as the last machine rolled off the assembly line, they burned all the extra parts, destroyed any unsold machines, and then--like whoever it was in history who had his architect murdered so no one would ever be able to duplicate his palace--shot all the people who had ever made parts for the machine to make sure the knowledge didn't fall into the wrong hands. So.....now I'm just hoping to get Jeeves back by the end of August.
Rats....looks like I might have to finally figure out how to do all the cool stuff with the serger....
