I just looked over an on-line version of owners manual. You have to put oil to high mark. Some small amount of oil splash seems normal. The machine is going to cause some vibration to the oil tank. As long as you have all adjustment right there should not be problems. Keep a small towel handy to wipe off any oil that comes out. If you don't have enough oil for the needle and machine the motor will lock up (seize) Be safe by always cutting power to machine if you are going to do any kind of service to it. Just as with a child, don't leave it running if you will be away from it for more than a couple of minutes.

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...

Juki DDL-8700 wheel not turning. Initially running fine, after a few minutes, wheel seizes. Machine is oiled, and we can see oil in the viewing window, Machine looks very clean inside. Motor sounds

Have you tried cleaning it? Sometimes a piece of thread or some fuzz gets in between the parts and causes friction. If you have a manual, or can get one online, you should walk through the pages on cleaning and do each and every part of the cleaning. If that doesn't work, call a professional. There are service people who come out to your shop and work on industrial machines. Mine charges $55, plus parts if needed.

How do I stop my Juki DDL-8700 machine from skipping stitches?

set up on quilting table? wheres the oil pan?? if your machine sews fine straight and skips on curves i think you are lifting the presser ft as you make the turn. theres nothing wrong with the machine. you could always change the needle which is always the first thing when you encounter a sewing problem.
