JUKI BOBBIN THREAD WILL NOT FEED


Most machines require that the bobbin in the case unspool in a certain direction its considered common knowledge I guess because it doesn't seem to be written in the text of manuals... but is indicated in the photos. make sure it's unspooling correctly.

Secondly. Please make sure you have the correct needle for your machine. Some machines do not use a 15x1 (most common needle) Let me show you. (see photo below) Clearly the 241x1 won't fit into your machine. BUT the 15x1 will go into the machine that requires the 20x1.... and the result is it won't pick up the bobbin thread.

Start there. Then check your timing.

The upper thread will not pick up bobbin thread


Make sure the needles are the correct size, fully inserted into the needle bar and oriented correctly for your machine. If that doesn't work check the timing. The hook should arrive at the needle scarf when the needle is at the lowest point in it's travel. If it doesn't... go have it timed by a pro.

Needle won't pick up bobbin thread


check to make sure that the needle was put into the needle holder correctly
all the way up into the needle holder--flat side of the needle to the back side of the machine
if the machine still doesn't up the bobbin thread then
it's possible that when the needle broke that it caused the machine to go out of time which means it has to be retime at a sewing machine shop
