Question about Juki DDL-8700
The machine head is tilted and the belt had come off. The is belt back on, but i cannot figure out how to get the machine head balanced. The belt seems to be pulling one side of the machine down.
Carmen, Your belt is either twisted or is not down in the groove in the hand wheel or in the pulley that is on the end of your motor. Use a flashlight to look at the end of your motor (under your table). That is a common problem. Once you think it is probably on both the hand wheel and the pulley, start turning the hand wheel towards you about 10 times. Sometimes that helps it settle in. When this happens, the hinges sometimes get crooked and you will need to try to straighten them by jiggling the head of the sewing machine until it settles in. Good luck.

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.

On the motor where the clutch is you will see thge large pin with a nut on it, as you press on the pedal the pin engages with the motor, if you loosen the nut and unscrew the pin bit by bit and try the machine you will get to a point where you will have absolute control on the speed.
