Question about Juki TL-98Q
I am currently using a Juki TL98Q machine on a Gracie quilt frame with a Gracie Sure Stitch regulator. I can quilt for approx 30 seconds and then the needle thread breaks. I've adjusted the tenion in the bobbin, changed needles, adjusted the stitch length on the Juki, as well as the stitch regulator. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.

Are you threading it correctly? I've had this problem twice, the first few times the thread was wrapped around different items (below the spool holder and then around the needle) the other times I threaded it wrong. Double check that the machine is threaded correctly with the manual. I've missed a step here or there and it does make a difference.

Are you sure the needle is in the right way? For an industrial machine, the groove in the needle should be facing left.
