Question about Juki TL-98Q

1 Answer

My down needle and cutter are not working and though the motor runs, it suddenly will not sew. When I turn the wheel forward it will click once and when I turn the wheel backwards it will catch and stop. I cannot find any threads caught even with a flashlight. What are your thoughts?

Looks like you have spun your hook basket, unless you are familiar with the hook assembly you need a technician.
sorry!

How can I fix the needle assembly on my Bernina 930 Record...it all of the sudden doesn't move up and down?


There is a screw-in "hub", a round thingie, to tighten on the end of the machine, in the middle of the big spinning wheel. Hold the wheel and turn the hub clock-wise to tighten it ("Righty-Tighty, Lefty-Loosy).

It may be a bit tight to start with, they can "jam" open. Just turn it firmly as needed.

The reason the hub tightens and loosens is so you can run the machine quite fast when filling a bobbin up with thread without having all the gears and werkin's clatter as you do so.

Here is a VIDEO (better than just a photo, yes?) on how to operate your very model sewing machine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drLD66Wa7U0

Hyundai Sewing Machine not sewing all of a sudden


Does the light work? Does the motor make noise? Does the hand wheel turn? If the hand wheel turns does the needle move up and down? As you can see you need to be very specific before we can help you. There are another dozen questions you could save me asking with a better description of your problem. Have a great day.

Annoying solution, but works every time. Remove the ENTIRE bobbin casing from the base and then turn the wheel. The needle should lift right out. Reassemble bobbin casing and oil very well.

This generally only happens when you are sewing through several layers of fabric or though a thick fabric. If you are doing neither, the timing in your machine may be off and you will need to get it repaired.

First, in order to get the bobbin thread up, you have to turn the wheel backward, not forward. If you try this, and it is not the problem, keep going.

Next you need to check the needle. There is a screw on the right side of the needle carriage right underneath the underside of the top...unscrew this and the needle should come right out. The flat side of the needle shank should go towards the back of the machine. If it isn't, switch it so that it is and try again.

If this doesn't solve your problem, what has happened is that the gears in the machine have gotten out of alignment. There is an easy fix:

Take off the plate that covers the bobbin chase...there are two screws one on each side. Remove these...you need a stub screwdriver, because regular ones will not fit under there.

Remove the bobbin carriage and the bobbin, making careful note of how they fit back in. Take a picture before disassembling it so you have a reference.

The part that carries the thread around the bobbin is still in the machine. Turn the wheel and you will see it rotate. What has happened is that the needle is not going down in the machine at the right point because someone kept sewing after it jammed and one gear kept going while the other one didn't and now it is out of alignment. These machines have plastic gears and the can slip past each other if you aren't careful not to stop immediately when they jam.

To fix it, you are going to have to do some trial and error. Grab the rotating part of the bobbin chase and hold it firmly. Rotate the wheel forward until you hear it click once. Then rotate the wheel backward again and see if it grabs the top thread. If it doesn't, repeat holding the bobbin chase and turning the wheel forward until it does.

Once you have the gears basically aligned, you will need to reassemble everything. Put the face plate back on and put at least one of the screws in all the way. The face plate holds the bobbin chase in correctly and if you don't fasten it it will not work correctly.

Now try sewing. If it starts to jam, stop immediately, cut the threads and look at the back. If it's a loopy mess, you are going to have to dissamble as before and again grasp the bobbin chase and turn the wheel forward one more click, then reassemble and try again. Eventually, you will find exactly the right alignment and the machine will sew perfectly.

I just had to make this fix on my own machine...I didn't want to take it in for repair because the bench fee alone would cost as much as the machine did!

There are some great video's on YouTube for help with threading the machine...look for StampTV and you should find them. Good luck!

DO NOT LUBRICATE THE MOTOR!! The machine needs to split, ie the outer casing needs to be removed, inspected, and CAREFULLY lubricated. It also might be that as you have been sewing heavy fabric you could have knocked the timing out.

Wheel won't turn


Hello,

The same thing happend to me with an older model (Singer XL 10). I have been sewing a decorating stitch and the machine stopped suddenly. Now I am not able to turn the hand wheel anymore like I should (I can move it a little bit, but the needle does not move up and down and the wheel is getting stuck). When I try to use the pedal the motor makes a horrible noise and stops. The needle is not moving up and down.

Is there a solution for that problem? I moved from Europe to Australia and have not used my machine since. Today is the first day, I was cleaning and oiling it and it first sewed perfectly. In case that there would be thread stuck somewhere, how could I possibly clean that? I already took off the plastic from the head, but I can not see where the problem is.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Best regards,
Nelly
