Question about Juki TL-98Q
I am still having problems with my Juki 98qe. I use it exclusivley to free motion quilt and use my walking foot for bindings. No problems when using the walking foot but major probs using free motion. I took it to repair shop because it was making loud clacking noise. He fixed the timing. I took it home and it worked for a little while and then the clicking was back. I bought some oil from my repairman and he showed me where to oil near my bobbin case and in other areas--even though I had just done it. Now, the clicking noise is back and while quilting it is as though the fabric is dragging and it is difficult to pull through. I have been quilting with this machine for over a year with no problems until now. I noticed there is a disc between the tension knob and the machine and it looks like it is loose. I didn't notice it before so I don't know what it should look like. Please help as I want to try to fix this myself or avoid it again if at all possible. Like I said I use this machine without problems for over a year, so I think it is a problem with the machine. Thanks

am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?
Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.

I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.

Janome now has a darning foot ie it looks like an embroidery foot with a spring designed for the 1600 models. It is metal with a ring where the needle goes down through it. I removed the plastic lens inside the ring and this seems to have resolved the problem.
I usually pull my threads to the top so I can see where they are and not getting tangled underneath.
There are several good groups on Yahoo groups which offer support for starting out on quilting

Are you threading it correctly? I've had this problem twice, the first few times the thread was wrapped around different items (below the spool holder and then around the needle) the other times I threaded it wrong. Double check that the machine is threaded correctly with the manual. I've missed a step here or there and it does make a difference.
