SOURCE: raising bobbin thread

These machines are timed by belt and go out of time a lot. Check and see that when the needle passes through the plate and travels upward 1/8" at this point the rotating hook should be right behind and above the eye in the needle,my guess is that it is out probably 1 tooth on the timing belt and can usually be corrected by removing the bobbin case and holding the rotating hookk with on ehand and forcing the handwheel with the other hand which will cause the belt to jump a cog and should put your machine back in time I hope this helps

Sounds like you need to put a drop of clear sewing machine oil in the raceway of the hook. Then sew on some scrap material to soak up the excess oil.

Have a juki tension top and bottom loose,top tension mechanism tight what do i do?

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and re-thread from the beginning. Verify that the thread follows the correct path. Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number.

Re-install the bobbin (make sure it turns the correct direction in the bobbin case). Thread the bobbin thread through the bobbin tension.

Test your machine.

The Bobbin Assembly will turn in reverse but not forward Juki LU-563

Most likely the bobbin retainer has been bent. Turn it over by hand with the power off and look carefully, you will prolly see it.

After winding a bobbin on my Juki TS2010Q and releasing the winding lever, my machine will not run, Up/Down needle or cut. The electronic buzz indicates that it is trying but nothing happens.

Have you tried pulling gently on the thread coming up from the bobbin? If this doesn't give, the thread may be tangled around the mechanism (under the machine, where the bobbin fits). Open that section and you should see if there is excess thread wound around. Clear this, and when you put the machine back in place, gently hold the bobbin thread to assist in not having loose thread to tangle again. This sounds like my machine sounds when that happens to mine so I hope this fixes it.

Juki dnu-1514s The machine is threaded and and the bobbin is loaded. When I sew, the machine does not make any stitches. It's as if the machine is not threaded and I'm just running fabric...

Your bobbin system isn't engaged. this can happen for several reasons, mostly when things are a little out of whack.
The 1541 has a 'clutch' it located near center on the bottom surface and is a silver circle below the 'arm'. Bring the needle all the way down, now push the clutch and hold while you turn the wheel back (top away from you) eventually the clutch will click when everythings aligned and engage the bobbin system again.

My Model # 1120 Singer sewing machine needle will not go up and down when motor is pressed. The bobbin winder, however, spins.

It sounds like your machine is set to wind the bobbin right now, so the drive is disengaged. That would explain why the bobbin winder pin is the only part moving. Check your manual for how to reset the machine when you are finished winding the bobbin.

Most machines have a way to disengage the drive for the needle while filling the bobbin. Then once the bobbin is filled, you re-engage the drive. Some machines have a separate, smaller hand-wheel that turns and clicks into place. Some machines automatically reengage the drive once the bobbin pin snaps into place away from the drive belt.

I hope this helps!

I have a Juki LU-562 sewing machine I was sewing thick leather it made this clunk noise and a spring flew out of it underneth it now the hook just turns and it doesn't sew.

Like most of the older sewing machines, the lu-562 is usually an easy fix when it comes to issues of timing and even broken parts. First determine where the spring came from and that should point you to the parts that need replacing and/or readjusting. But, by all means DO NOT continue operating the machine until its fixed. Without actually seeing the machine, it sounds as if the needle bar spring failed.

I have a juki industrial machine when i try to fill bobbin the machine just carries on normal sewing the wheel to fill bobbin just dosent move

so many different versions to disengage the drive, but all are located on the right hand side of the machine on the part that allows you to rotate the sewing mechanism by hand. there is likely a button or that part will pull outwards

Bobbin filling

The handwheel may have a pull out/push in action to disengage/engage the clutch, or it may automatically disengage when the bobbin winder is moved to the right for winding........hold a short tail of thread to get it started and you should be away.

Move the winder to the left for sewing, or push handwheel in, according to the mechanism.
