SOURCE: question==>JUKI dnu 1541 or ddl 8300n

Might I be so bold as to disagree with Allmakes.
Why would a manufacturer build different models of industrial. They are designed for differnt jobs. The 8300 is a high speed garment machine, the 1541 is a compund feed upholstery machine. The motor is the same HP and does not affect the ability to sew heavy. The garment machine will sew garment weight leather just fine but you will have problems getting the fabric to feed properly particularly over seams. The other issure you may find with a garment machine is it's ability to handle heavier threads. I suggest that the 1541 would be a better choice for making bags and purses.

SOURCE: How do I attach a walking foot

Okay let's get started.

  • First let's look at the walking foot.
  • Turn the bulky body so that it's away from you.
  • On the left you see a groove that is going to be where you attach the foot to your machine.
  • On the right is a u-shaped arm which you can move up and down. It will go over the needle clamp
Now, let's remove your present foot from the machine and look at it.
  • Loosen the foot screw until it almost comes off. (if it does come off, screw it back on a bit.) The screw is on the left of the foot-bar.
  • On the right you'll see the needle bar with a needle clamp (what you tighten when you replace a needle) on the right of the needle-bar.
Okay the walking foot business.
  • slide the walking foot into position so that the foot screw is in the slot on the right and the u-shaped arm is over the needle clamp, with the needle clamp in the middle of the u-shaped opening.
  • Tighten the foot screw securely, it's going to be under more strain than normal.
  • While you're at it, check that the needle-clamp is nice and tight as well.
Okay, then! There you go... Happy sewing.

SOURCE: Elna walking foot

If your SU is an Air Electronic model i.e. 80's model, Elna didn't make a walking foot to fit. However, if you've got a walking foot that is the same height from sole plate to the screw fitting as a standard Elna foot then you could give it a try. The walking foot connects to the presser bar with a screw but the needle bar also needs to hook into a secondary lever on the side of the walking foot to make the foot actually move. Probably sounds very confusing . Check the movement of the foot manually by hand turning the fly wheel to see how it works before you actually use with the motor to minimise any problems if the foot doesn't fit.

Also you'll probably only be able to do straight stitch with this foot due to the clearance around the needle plate.

Is this a Janome MemoryCraft 9000? (I ask because the models seem to get mixed up in the threads)

If so, you can more than likely find accessories for the MC9000 either on eBay, your local Janome dealer (you can find the closest one to you @ Janome's website using the "Dealer Locator" feature) or even ... SEARS!

Sears contracted Janome to make several of their sewing machines (I think Janome might still be the actual manufacturer, but aren't 100% sure) and so the parts are compatible. You can even use a Kenmore Memory Card with a Janome MC9000.

As for oiling, if it's the MC9000 (much like practically all newer models) they don't need oiling. Though sometimes, you can dab a teeny-tiny amount of oil on the bobbin case if it needs it.

Why does my needle keep breaking and bobbin case makes a clicking sound and locks up on me?

I'd guess the bobbin case is not firmly in place with the locking tabs. I believe the click is the needle striking the out of place bobbin. Your Owner's manual may give you some better understanding.

I have juki 1541 industrial machine needle want pick up bobbin thread??

Is your needle inserted correctly? Try taking it out and inserting again. Is your bobbing threaded correctly? Try taking it out and re-threading. You might also try cleaning the bobbin area. The only other think I can think of is that you may have the wrong needle in.

I would like instructions on how to set different stitch lengths on my Juki 1541-S.

Puckering is typically NOT a tension problem. But rather a bad needle or not the right needle for the project and thread. Sometimes it's uneven feed but since your 1541 is a walking foot you might have to get the feed timed. I know little about that.

I would first look at the recommended needle thread combo for the fabric. Then the presser foot tension.

Good luck.

Upper thread keeps shreading on juki 1541

Without seeing your manual it's hard to tell for sure, but it is likely that your needle and thread combo is causing the problem. Another thing can be a burr or nick on the presser foot or needle plate. First change change the needle to a different one in size 18. If it still shreds we no it is probably the needle... size up to a 20. If it works... you are good to go.

If that doesn't work... take off the presser foot and examine the needle plate for burrs, stab marks, chips. Also examine the presser foot.

If you find a defect carefully smooth that with some very fine sand paper. and try sewing again.

Good luck

Need threading instructions for JUKI DNU1541S Threading Diagram

I also have a Juki DNU-1541S and I'v had nothing but problems. My bobbin will not feed out thread. The Pressure foot needs a wrench to lift it, the knee pad will not work due to the pressure foot being so stiff. YES, I've turned the knob at the top so much it's near comming off !!
The so-called "Instructional Manual" appears to be a "UNITED NATIONS" resolution in all languages. The English portions is barely enough to fit 1/4 page. A Manual ?? A JOKE is better.
