Question about Juki Sewing Machines
I have changed out needle, bobbin case. It will sew about a dozen stitches then the bobbin side skips 3+ stitch widths, then sews a few and then skips again.
Sounds like u have the wrong needle or machine is out of time. if its a needle feed machine u might have the wrong bobbin case. try lowering the needle slightly. machine is easy to time. theres a mark on the needle bar which u align with the bottom of the bar guide then loosen the hook (3 screws) and move hook till it just starts to meet the needle. careful of side to side movment. bobbin case has to remain in the finger.

SOURCE: skip stitch
The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:
1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.
2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.
3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

Here are a few things to try. One of these should fix your problem.
* Re-thread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).
* Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.
* Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit
fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).
And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.
* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.
* Change your thread
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for
both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.
* Adjust your thread tension
It may be too tight or too loose.
* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.
* Change your needle plate
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).
* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure. I know you said you checked this already but it might not hurt to double check it.
After changing your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with
this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which
could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide
Hope this helps.

Sounds like the loopers are slightly out of line or the needle bar is twisted. Unfortunately these adjustments are not easily made. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

It is most likely because you have it on a type of stitch but did not switch the didstance that you want the zig zag to be. Just change you stitch or your distance.
