Believe me, that money is well spent.
I found this on the internet, because the pausing seems to happen at the same height, and if you are using Cura see this. Maybe you activate it.

I dont know if people still encounter mid print pauses from the Anet A8. I had a issue with it and found out for me it was caused by the Cura software which came with the printer. It had a plugin activated called, Pauze at Height, under the plugin tab. After removing it from the active plugin list my Anet did not pauze mid print anymore.
Currently running the latest Marlin firmware, stil without pauzing mid print."
