Question about Juki DDL-8300
I purchased a Juki ddl 8300n about two weeks ago. I have had nothing but problems. The dealer that I got it from isn't any help. First, It does not want to feed the fabric from the edge. It just sets there with the feed dogs going up and down but not moving the fabric. I can't sew close to corner of fabric , like sewing a tote strap as it does the same thing.
I can be sewing down the middle of the fabric and the machine again will stop moving the fabric and just go up and down. Thank you, I hope you can help. Dianne

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.

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:
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

Sounds like as the machine builds up friction from extended use, some vital part is lacking lubrication and is seizing up. A good service person will remove ALL of the covers and thoroughly air clean and oil every moving part. Sometimes these dry points are hard to find and patience is required.
You can get a sewing machine oiler with a long applicator and put a drop of oil on anything that moves, but over oiling can be messy.
