Hi, my wife and I just bought a Juki HZL-E80... I love the machine. I had a problem like you discribe...This problem can come from two sources...one the bobin has been installed improperly. ...or been wound incorrectly by not haveing adjusted the Bobbin tension ...I did the tension adjustment with the screwdriver supplied with the machine accessories. Also...this is a biggie...the auto matic needle threader works great...but I discovered that when I preformed this function..that I over looked the thread holder that keeps the thread even with the needle....so, the solution is to thread the needle then be sure to check that the thread coming down from the spool is placed behind the little wire holder above the needle...I hope this helps you ...because it is a wonderful machine.....Bill & Donna Bramble...Caldwell Idaho...

Hi. I have a new overlocker. Fabric got jammed ,got it out but machine now jams at half turn . Could some fabric still be under feed dogs ? How to get it out ?


Hello Jenny hornsey

This may sound traumatic, but there is no easy way to pin point where the tie-up is located. So proceed as follows.
Cut all the threads as they come off the antennas.

Open the front cover and pull-out all the threads by pulling them straight toward the back. If they do not come easily, try moving the hand wheel back and forth by a 1/4 revolution .. this is like a rocking motion. If still not budging, start cutting back the threads and removing them in sections until all the threads are cleared. If this step is still challenging; check that there is no residual fabric or threads still wrapped around the loopers or other part/s of the serger. If so cut them out bit by bit until everything below is cleared.

Great. Now check for threads wrapped and/or jammed anywhere above.

Since the overlocker jammed, it is possible that the needles were bent. This will continue to cause issues in stitch formation. So just to make sure; change the needle/s. Make sure that the correct needle type is being used. Every overlocker is engineered to be used with a specific needle type. The needle type will be specified in the manual and will also appear on the needle package. If the needle types are not the same, do not use those needles.

Re-thread the overlocker and stitch test on a piece of fabric before pressing down on the foot control.

This should get the overlocker back on track and you back to overlocking.

Please let me know how this works out for you.

Happy overlocking

I have a deco 600....it keeps on jamming. The top thread gets entangled with bobbin and the machine jams fast and the needle breaks.


try adjusting the needle thread right up to stop the bunching of thread that is causing the problem

My sewing machine stops sewing and thread gets jammed underneath the fabric


Change your needle, and retread properly. then make sure you are holding the threads when you start a seam.

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.


Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on www.sewing.about.com or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

The first few stitches are just fine but then the machine seems to seize up and stops. When I try to remove the fabric I can barely lift it and then I must cut through a veritable bird's nest of threads on...


You may have a jam under the needle plate. Take it off and have a look.
It is often a simple case of one of the threads not passing through the tension discs correctly. Try re-threading upper and lower, making sure the presser foot is up at the time.

Are you sewing a fine material? Sometimes fine fabric gets pushed down through the universal needle plate hole which is slightly elongated. If this is the case you need a straight stitch needle plate. You cannot do zig zig or anything other than straight stitch with this plate.

If re-threading does not do it and you do have a soft fabric, try popping some freezer paper or similar under the first few centimeters of sewing before buying another needle plate, it might work.

I can only sew a few good stitches and then it starts bunching up underneath the fabric. I have watched the top and bottom thread as it goes around the bobbin case. After a couple of stitches it seems to...


It very well could have a burr in on your bobbin case, If, it was me, I would take it to Sears sewing machine department and ask them what they think it could be. They sometimes have new bobbin cases right there for you to buy, depending how big your Sears is. It won't cost you anything, at least to find out from the saleman.

My old machine has jammed and cannot stitch


You need to take the bobbin case out to check thouroughly for a piece of thread that may be stuck, that is usually the answer.

Thread jams


Hi! I've had this happen to me many times and it is so very frustrating! First, take the bobbin out and also the bobbin assembly and clean the entire area of all lint, fuzz, little bits of thread....get it as clean as you can. Take out the upper thread too. Clean and oil. Change the needle. Make sure you're using the appropriate size and type of needle and thread for the fabric. Take off the needle plate and look for any nicks or scratches. If you've got them, you can get emery cloth from a good hardware store (often in the plumbing department) and polish them out (or mostly out).

Rethread the machine, carefully following the instruction manual. Use your basic, normal settings. Using a scrap of the fabric you're trying to gather, sew a seam and see if everything works ok. You may need to hold the top and bobbin thread firmly behind the needle as you sew the first few stitches (I find this little trick helps a lot to prevent birdsnests).

To gather, sew three parallel lines of long, basting stitches (you really don't need a special foot or special settings other than to make the stitch a long one). Don't backstitch, reverse, or lockstitch either end, and leave the thread long when you cut it. Pull the three bobbin threads and the fabric with gather nicely along them.

Something to keep in mind--if you're trying to gather very sheer fabric on a zigzag machine, you may need to replace the throat plate with the zigzag hole for a throat plate with a single, small hole for a straight stitch. I've run into this situation before, and ended up using one of my antique straight-stitch only machines to do the gathering.

If you don't have a throat plate with the single hole, you might try some light weight interfacing to give some density to the sheet fabric.


Hope this helps!
