Question about Juki DDL-8700

1 Answer

I have a JUKI DDL-8700N. I recently moved the machine and the movers turned the machine on its side. Now the sewing speed is very fast and it doesn't stop when I take my foot off the pedal.

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.

Juki DDL-227 won't spin


:) welcome to the world of industrial machines. The good news is they are typically simple machines.

It is a good habit to take a few minutes to clean and oil your machine before you start sewing. Look for the oil points and give it one drop of quality sewing machine oil in each port.

Now let's try to determine why the hand wheel isn't turning. Loosen and remove the belt from the large reducer wheel under the table to the sewing machine. Try to turn the hand wheel. If it does turn.... Good! If it doesn't turn... we know the problem is in the the machine head and not the wheels below.

Make sure there is no bobbin thread or upper thread. Try to turn the hand wheel again. Anything?

Look carefully at the machine... is the take up lever bent? (personally had this happen with friends helped me move a big machine like this.)

Keep working this way... inspecting the machine until you find the problem. Good luck

I still don't understand this. I have acquiured a juki DDL 553 recently to discover I have no idea how to change the stitch length and that there is no reverse stitch. I have pressed the black button and have tried to turn the side?( the wheel?) but when i push down on the black button there is no way to turn the wheel it doesn't move, maybe there is some other part I'm supposed to be moving??
