Question about Juki DDL-8700

1 Answer

Thread Breaks I just set up my machine and threaded it according to the video. My thread keeps breaking. I tried adjusting the tension but for some reason it keeps breaking. I doubled checked my threading and it seems to be fine. This is frustrating since I am not familiar with this new machine

Tilt machine on bed and run you finger around the hook checking for burrs. use emeory paper to remove any burrs. rub around the hook not across!! your thread could be cheap and not bonded, it may be splitting when the hook grabs it. also loosen the tension on the bobbin case so u will not need so much tension on top. is your take up spring in the right position with just a little tension?

SOURCE: the top thread keep breaking. should the tension

Thread breakage is usually due to the needle in backwards, upper tension too tight or old/weak thread.

When replacing the needle, make sure that the flat side is to the right (3 o'clock position) and is pushed all of the way up before tightening.

What brand and weight of thread are you using and are you sewing with the foot or free motion sewing?

SOURCE: janome sewing machine thread breaks while quilting

Check for burrs. Even the tiniest burr can break thread. Check the needle throat plate, the bobbin area...

Get out your magnifying glass and really inspect it. If you find a burr... carefully smooth it down with some very fine (1200 grit) sand paper.

SOURCE: I have a Juki DDL 227. Top thread keeps breaking instantly

Well, you've not checked "Everything" but you have checked the common things.

Do you have any idea of where it is actually breaking? Re-thread your machine and see if you can determine exactly where the break occurs.

Sometimes a damaged needle throat plate will break threads... as will a burr on the hook in the bobbin area. Also if there is a burr or rough spot on the thread spool it will sometimes catch and cause breakage.

Good luck

My thread uptake lever keeps coming unthreaded. It causes stitches to be skipped and eventually the thread breaks. I have adjusted the tension, it doesn't help.


take up lever--try putting some tape on it to see if that will stop the thread from coming off.
also change the needle--make sure is the correct one for the fabric
