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.

    start on top of machine. Is the take up arm threaded. Is the needle in correctly the scarf of the needle needs to facetowards the hook underneath. next and lastly the machine is out of time. lower the stitch size to zero and rotate the hand wheel. on the needle bar you will see a cut groove. rotate needle bar until groove is even with the bottom of the needle bar guide. th needle is now in the correct position to ck timing. tilt machine up on its rests and look at the hook in relation to the needle. the hook should be 1/16 " before passing the needle. or just in front of the needle depending on what weight goods u r sewing. timing from there is easier if you remove the feeder plate and one screw from the feeders in order to see the relation of the hook to needle. remember the needle bar needle bar groove need to be lined up properly. loosen the three screws and move hook to right position. good luck!

Make sure you are threaded correctly. Also be sure that your bobbin is sitting in the casing correctly. If the timing is right and the hook is catching, the thread may not be pulling through correctly. Clean your machine as well. Make sure your tension spring is clean and doesn't need to be tuned up.

How to fix bobbin tension on a juki


first clean bobbin case loosen thread tension screw and clean under tension spring, hi pressure air is the best. its important to clean under tension part because material builds up and does not allow the flat spring to put the proper pressure on the bobbin thread. tighted tension (second screw) accordingly. all thread tension depends on thickness of goods being sewn. the heavier the good the more tension u need on top.

JUKI BOBBIN THREAD WILL NOT FEED


Most machines require that the bobbin in the case unspool in a certain direction its considered common knowledge I guess because it doesn't seem to be written in the text of manuals... but is indicated in the photos. make sure it's unspooling correctly.

Secondly. Please make sure you have the correct needle for your machine. Some machines do not use a 15x1 (most common needle) Let me show you. (see photo below) Clearly the 241x1 won't fit into your machine. BUT the 15x1 will go into the machine that requires the 20x1.... and the result is it won't pick up the bobbin thread.

Start there. Then check your timing.

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

I have lost the manual and i dont remember how to thread a bobbin. Pleas help me and thank you!


Juki TL-98Q
Loading the bobbin into the bobbin case:
Snap in the bobbin case latch, and put the bobbin into the bobbin case so that the bobbin runs clockwise.
Passing the thread through the **** of the bobbin case, continue passing it under the thread tension spring, and pull out the thread open end about 10 cm from the bobbin case.
Insert the bobbin case fully into the hook, and close the bobbin case latch.

Juki TL-98QE thread comes out of needle, won't pull up bobbin


It can be many things but first make sure the needle is in correctly, follow the manual to be sure, if it still does not pick up the bobbin thread you may want to bring it to a repairman to see if it is out of timing.
