Question about Yamata FY811 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Needle won't move

I recently purchased a yamata 8500 industrial machine. The motor, machine and table were seperate. I thought that I had installed everything correctly, however when I power on the machine, the needle does not move when I press the presser foot.

Make sure the clutch motor is powering up. make sure voltage toggle switch is on 110v and not 220v. Also rotation set correctly. Independently, make sure the motor runs. With your hands and motor belt disengaged, attempt to turn the handwheel toward you. If it is moving, then make sure motor is running. It handwheel does not turn it could be the machine. Make sure the stitch length dial is set at 2 or 3 and not 0 or 5. That could be that problem as well.

I am a swimwear designer and just got a juki ddl 8300n did I pick a good machine? How can I adjust the machine for a more stretchy stitch?! What number should my stitch dial be on to get a stretch?


Perhaps a manual would be helpful:

You should probably contact the manufacturer with questions. Hopefully, you did some thorough research before purchasing this machine. From the info I found, it appears to be a straight stitch only machine. I don't know anything about this machine, but I would be hesitant to purchase a straight stitch machine for sewing swimwear. Usually, swimwear needs a stretch stitch or zig-zag capability. Just my thoughts...

Broken feeder plate


It would be called a Needle plate or Throat plate. Good luck finding them, I've never seen anything in the domestic machines... and industrial machines are just as difficult to find. Check with whomever you purchased it from. Perhaps they can direct you to a parts place.

My grandmother recently gave me her industrial singer 49 d200ga machine, and i love it because it works fine. However, when I brought it home, the foot pedal stopped working properly. How can i get it


Is your industrial machine one that has a big motor mounted under the table? If so make sure the power cored is plugged in. Also if your pedal is not installed properly it will sometimes flip forward get bound up and won't allow the proper throw to run the motor. Since the pedal doesn't supply power check the linkage to the motor.
