    It is no longer necessary. The machine is fixed. I should have posted it before. Thanks for responding.

SOURCE: Thread wound around disc of take-up lever on bernina 1008

Hi, there is no top cover on this machine. First the side cover has to come off then the back cover. Under the back cover there is a rigidity plate with many screws that has to come off and then you might be able to get at the take up lever mechanism. I'm not saying you can't do this but it might just be the time to have a tech go in and service this machine completely.
The thread must have slipped out of the end of the takeup lever and wound in the mechanism. It happens.
If you feel you want to do this yourself feel free to contact me and I can walk you through getting the covers off.
Possibly you can get a tweezers or needlenose pliers in through the front slot, grasp the thread and turn the handwheel bit by bit and see if it will unwind as you pull it out.

SOURCE: thread caught behind the bobbin case holder

Take off the presser foot
take off the needle plate
take off the bobbin plate
take out the needle,
clip bobbin free,
Examine the bobbin carrier on how it fits into place. (important)
Lift out the bobbin carrier.

Each machine is a little different. You may want to take pictures as you do each step for later reference. Use something like an old egg carton or a muffin tin to keep your parts from rolling around or getting knocked off an lost.

Have fun.

My Janome Memory Craft 3600 is locking up and it seems like the main shaft is freezing. Can it be fixed to stop locking up?


check around the bobbin carrier area for fluff and tangled bits of thread
they get tight as they are wound around the shaft and jam between the moving bits acting like a brake
remove all threads and clean and lubricate the area

I just brought home a Juki 8700. The needle went down and now I can't get it basck up. There is thread stuck in the bobbin. How do I get the bobbin casing off


Cut the thread above the needle eye and rock the handwheel back and forth sharply to cut the thread with the sewing hook. If that doesn't work pretty promptly, undo the needle clamp and turn the handwheel, which should raise the needle bar. Then get into the bobbin case area and try to remove the bobbin case, cutting any threads you can. Keep rocking the handwheel and trying to pull out the needle (pliers help!), and eventually everything will loosen up.

Next, clean and lubricate the area under the needle plate and the shuttle, and reassemble. Put in a brand new needle, right way around and fully up in the machine. Load the bobbin case with a well-wound bobbin, and rethread the top of the machine and you should be good to go.

After winding a bobbin on my Juki TS2010Q and releasing the winding lever, my machine will not run, Up/Down needle or cut. The electronic buzz indicates that it is trying but nothing happens.


Have you tried pulling gently on the thread coming up from the bobbin? If this doesn't give, the thread may be tangled around the mechanism (under the machine, where the bobbin fits). Open that section and you should see if there is excess thread wound around. Clear this, and when you put the machine back in place, gently hold the bobbin thread to assist in not having loose thread to tangle again. This sounds like my machine sounds when that happens to mine so I hope this fixes it.

Juki, DNU-1541S: thread was not picking up the bobbin thread. The hook shaft is not moving... After trying to move the needle in a reverse motion... Now the hand wheel will not move it is frozen in place.


You've got something binding in the bobbin area. Open up the entire bobbin/feed dog area plates so you can really see. Get your magnifying glass out and really examine the area for threads wound around things. DO NOT unscrew anything if you can help it. If you unscrew the wrong thing you can knock it completely out of time. (which may be why couldn't get the bobbin thread up anyway.)

If all this is intimidating to you... take it for repair.

How do i fix the tension? i've been playing with the knobs for hours, but the threads are still too loose on the fabric.


Try decreasing your stitch width and this should help. Put your tension dials on 4. Also make sure when you thread your machine your presser foot lever is up to allow you to get your threads through your tension discs properly. To test the tension (usually set at 4 on all 4 knobs) when you thread around the knobs pull the thread on both ends like you're using dental floss around the discs under the knobs so you can feel the pull (tension) on the thread. Let me know if this works for you.
