Question about Juki TL-98Q
I have the Jukie 98Q and problem with needle breakage. After inserting needle I check to be sure needle clears the plate and is in tight. After stiching for awhile needle starts hitting the plate. Machine is dedicated to quilting frame. Can the vibration from stitching cause the needle to shift.
Ok Ladies I think I have another solution. I just spent 7 hours unpicking the loopy thread on 4 rows of my quilt. I tried again and it did it again. so I got that scrap piece of quilt sandwich and started testing. (I was a machinest for 10 years and was gonna figure this **** out) I did all the typical things that have been suggested.
1-Check to see if it's threaded Right
2-Check the upper thread tension
3-Change the needle
4-Check the bobbin tension
5-Use silicon on a sponge and have the thread drag thru it.
6-??? #5 helped me figure out my problem. as your threading your machine... when you get to the last stationary loop before you go down to the loop on the needle shaft...... Mine was jumping out of that thing enuff that even tho it looked like it was threaded thru there is WASN"T!!!! so as you r going along it shreading itself on the out side and that where those dang loops on the under side come from.. then it just breaks.
SOLUTION--- 1st I opened the door that covers the light and you can see a tiny screw that holds that particular loop in place. If you losen it just enuff you will notice it will swivel some. Mine was laying back against the body of the machine so I tipped it up as far as it would go and tightened it. Then I began to sew some more. Seamed to work and then WALLA out again.
2nd you know thos type of paper clips that are like jaws but if you flip their little handles over they will lay against your paper??? I got a tiny one of those and clipped it in such a way that the thread is untouched but it can't get out of that loop any more. Time to chage the thread? Remove the paper clip change the thread and put the clip back. Hows that!!! Need a picture email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Carol

I am having the same problem. I think either the thread gets caught around the bobbin or the cloth is pulling the needle over to the plate, like the hole is too small for these shifts. I bought a "hand made" quilt from the store a few years ago and thought I'd add more quilting to it for fun. I have gone through over 30 needles on it. I'm going to try oiling it and I'll post it if that works, if not I'll post something when I find the solution. Oh, the heavier duty needles (jeans/leather) last the longest.
