After readind the comments it indicates that the problem of not sewing is because of the needle positioning and if after the new needle it still does not help.then its definately the timing problem that needs to repaired and checked by a technician.accurate timing of the needle and base clap mathing results in proper stitching or else it wont stitch.if timing problem is sorted by a tech it will be fine.nothing much to worry.thanks and do rate the solution.

Hi!

Is the bobbin case pushed all the way in?
The upper thread could be tangled.
Remove the thread completely from the machine.
The correct size spool cap should be used for the size of the thread spool.
Re-thread the machine according to the directions in the manual.
You probably need to insert a new needle.

    Is your needle up too high or down too low in the needle holder? Try lowering it a little and see if that helps. And as mentioned before use a scrap of material to test it out.
    Make sure the flat part of the needle rests on the flat part of the holder.

I have an 8700 juki industrial machine and as I'm sewing the thread will not catch on the bottom bobbin. I'm frustrated.. It was fine the last time I've used it.


machines do not just go out of time. Is the top threaded correctly. did u miss threading thru the take up arm or take up spring change needle too.

Juki, DNU-1541S: thread was not picking up the bobbin thread. The hook shaft is not moving... After trying to move the needle in a reverse motion... Now the hand wheel will not move it is frozen in place.


You've got something binding in the bobbin area. Open up the entire bobbin/feed dog area plates so you can really see. Get your magnifying glass out and really examine the area for threads wound around things. DO NOT unscrew anything if you can help it. If you unscrew the wrong thing you can knock it completely out of time. (which may be why couldn't get the bobbin thread up anyway.)

If all this is intimidating to you... take it for repair.

My juki hzl35z will not pick up the bobbin thread suddenly! Help!


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

My Juki DL 5555 won't pick up bobbin thread


It is possible that you have the bobbin in backwards. Try inserting the bobbin so that the thread pulls in the opposite direction than it currently does. Also, sometimes you have to really push the bobbin case in to make sure it snaps into place. Other than that, you may have a dull needle...try replacing it, or it just may need an overhaul.

My thread is breaking when I'm sewing on my Juki DDL 555


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)
