Question about Juki TL-98Q
The top thread keeps breaking. should the tension be adjusted higher or lower?? What else could cause this problem? I already changed the needle.
Change to larger needle. heavy goods need at least a #21 needle. lower your needle and see if its centered in middle of presser ft slot. you have two rubber plugs on side of mach. the top plug when open exposed presser ft screw lower ft and loosen screw and tap ft to center needle. retighten. always use long screw drivers with sewing machines also. they give xtra leverage and a set of drivers should be ground to fit the feeder plate and feeders etc.

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?
