This is tech crazy

The most important element of a stitch mechanism is the shuttle hook and bobbin assembly. The bobbin is just a spool of thread positioned underneath the fabric. It sits in the middle of a shuttle, which is rotated by the machine's motor in synch with the motion of the needle.
so either there is rotational problem in the motor or the needle position is altered .just check out for it

Kindly rate me on the above said solution

Hand wheel & needle very stiff


Hai, I think your machine timing is changed. So you can't sewing properly. Please check the timing and put the oil everyday all oil parts properly.

Juki DDL-227 won't spin


:) welcome to the world of industrial machines. The good news is they are typically simple machines.

It is a good habit to take a few minutes to clean and oil your machine before you start sewing. Look for the oil points and give it one drop of quality sewing machine oil in each port.

Now let's try to determine why the hand wheel isn't turning. Loosen and remove the belt from the large reducer wheel under the table to the sewing machine. Try to turn the hand wheel. If it does turn.... Good! If it doesn't turn... we know the problem is in the the machine head and not the wheels below.

Make sure there is no bobbin thread or upper thread. Try to turn the hand wheel again. Anything?

Look carefully at the machine... is the take up lever bent? (personally had this happen with friends helped me move a big machine like this.)

Keep working this way... inspecting the machine until you find the problem. Good luck

Hand wheel won't spin?


Something is binding up inside. Clean and check under the presser foot and bobbin area. Really examine under there... look for threads wrapped around and in between moving parts. Also check in the slot for the take up lever... sometimes threads get balled up inside there can cause problems.

could also be a bent upper arm inside the machine (lets hope not) Get professional help if cleaning doesn't free it up.

Motor is fine, but won't sew


since the machine has been setting for 20 years, it needs to be serviced
the old grease & oil have probably turned the gunk. the servicing can also tell if any parts are damaged

The hand wheel keeps falling off and now when i try the sew nothing happens, the needle does not move. all i hear is the sound ofthe motor but nothing happens


If the balance wheel is coming off which it should not do because it is held on by the belt then you have not tightened the stop motion in the middle of the balance wheel, make sure you have not lost the little screw in the middle if the balance wheel.

Hand wheel loose


In the middle of the stop motion screw wheel there is a screw, undo the screw and unscrew the stop motion wheel all the way off, you will now see a three pronged washer, take it off and put it in a different position, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight, tighten the small screw all the way, now loosen the stop motion wheel and press on the foot control gently, the balance wheel should move with moving the machine, if the machine turns then start over again, you can put the three pronged washer upside down if you wish.
