Question about Juki DDL-8300

2 Answers

Juki 8300N I purchased this machine about a week ago and am pulling my hair out!! It works fine for a little while, and then when it comes over a seam (denim OR light cotton) or for just no reason at all, the thread gets cut or unthreaded, etc, it's no longer in the eye of the needle. Help would be SO appreciated, thanks!!

    Yes, new thread, even super strong thread, and threaded correctly....hmmm

  • fablesbybarr Jan 28, 2009

    I've noticed it does it a lot more when it is in reverse...does this sound familiar??

    is the tension set too high, or the thread thru the machine correct?

    is the thread new?

While trying to free motion quilt on my juki TL-98Q, it becomes very hard to move the quilt whenever I come to a seam. I have already turned the pressure foot dial to the lightest setting. I simply


I have never used a machine to free motion quilt. That said, I have had issues sewing over thick seams. Since your machine runs smoothly otherwise... I think it is the thickness of the seamed area that is causing your problem. It may be too late but you could try trimming your seams so the layers fabric graduate to full thickness. Or you could use a chop stick or popcicle stick to press down on the thickness as you guide the machine over the seam. I also suggest that you Fan your seam allowances where your blocks come together. You can see how that is done here. http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/videos/v/62207505/machine-minute-bulky-intersections-fanning-seam-allowances.htm

Dear Rosemarie,

Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:

  1. Lower Looper
  2. Upper Looper
  3. Left Needle
  4. Right Needle
Is there a diagram for how to thread on the inside of the door ?

Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.

Cheerup and Be Happy always

Your needle probably bent and got jammed. clip threads top and bottom of the fabric and remove... then get in the bobbin area and look for issues.

The race and needle of my Juki 8300N is jammed. There was a thread caught but it's gone as far as I can tell now. The needle won't move even if I turn the wheel by hand - it can just barely jiggle...

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.

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.
