Question about Juki Sewing Machines
On a Juki DDL 555-5 it is skipping stitches and then breaking the thread.
SOURCE: My thread is breaking when
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT NEEDLE FOR THE THREAD YOU ARE USING, AND THAT THE SAME THREAD IS ALSO IN THE BOBBIN. CHECK UPPER TENSION, BY PULLING SLIGHTLY, IF IT'S TIGHT, LOOSEN THE UPPER TENSION.YOUR THREAD MAY BE THE WRONG SIZE OR TYPE FOR THE SPEED YOUR SEWING., and the needle your are using( sorry about the caps lock)

Hi. Skipped stitches are usually caused by a mismatch in your thread and needle. Wrong thread type, wrong needle size, or even old thread can cause skipped stitches. If all else fails, change the needle. If that doesn't work, clean the machine. Sometimes just getting rid of all the lint and giving her a good oiling does a world of good.
Let me know if this works.

SOURCE: Needle not catching thread
im no expert, just been sewing for many years, i use 2 different juki machines, i suggest looking at the needle, are we sure you have the rite size? 135/ 140? did the needle just get changed? it could be the correct one, but if its in backwards, there isn't a dimple to let the hook behind the thread, to catch it, feel free to call me, 239-895-4845, my name is devin, shop is Quality Auto Trim Inc., ill try to help you over the phone if necessary, good luck
