Make sure the thread is in the tension disks and also in the take-up lever.

There should be a small screw on the side of your bobbin case adjust it little by little until you get the correct tension.

When I start to sew, the thread gets bunched up around the hook race unit

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...


douche the hook with oil wait a day and use hand force to get machine to turn. u have thread deep inside hook and its binding the machine. u can spray with wd-40 too but use alot and let it sit.

My problem is between the needle and the bobbin. The tread continues to get caught just below the needle- inside of the machine. The bobbin seems to be lifting up and thread gets caught beneath the needle


Hi. So is this a horizontal hook? Where is the thread getting caught beneath the needle? Maybe on the hook? Check your upper threading to make sure the thread passes through the thread take-up lever. If thread is not through the lever, it wont get pulled up , which can lead to multiple thread loops getting caught on the hook, not pulling off after the rotation.

My machine keeps jamming, what happens is that the top thread gets caught in the hook how do i solve this


Be sure there are no thread tails hanging from the bobbin when it's inserted into the bobbin case. They can jam the machine and cause the upper thread to break. And note that there's no such thing as a generic bobbin. Always use a bobbin designed for your machine in order to avoid skipped stitches, loose threads, and noise, as well as permanent damage to the bobbin case.
Clean your bobbin case and open the race (what you insert the bobbin into) to clean that out as well as the feed dogs. Excess lint can cause a lot of trouble when you're sewing so cleaning and oiling often can save you frustration and damage. Also use a quality thread that will not add to the lint build up.
Your race might also have a small burr that needs to be gently rubbed off. Do not use sandpaper as that will cause more burrs to form.
Hope this helped.

I cannot seem to thread the lower loop properly,am getting very frustrated


Have you been able to do it successfully in the past? What is the model number of the sewer in question, is it indeed a 644D? Are you following the procedures in the manual, or maybe you don't have one?

Let me know, just reply here.

Thanks
Tim

My brother PE-400 sewing quit sewing


The "race" on your machine needs adjusting. Remove the bobbin cover, bobbin, & case. What you have left is the race, it moves when you turn the large wheel on the top right of machine. The needle also moves up and down. There is a hook on the race that catches the needle thread. Try moving the race to the line up with the needle. It may take a couple of trys but it should do the trick. Also clean any threads that may be caught on or arround the race. Hope this helps!

Machine moves normally but does not sew


Okay, I know that you are an experienced sewer and have probably already checked, this but I had the same exact problem today and cleaning the shuttle race fixed it.
