Make sure the little hook is lined up with the hole in the needle and that your needle is not inserted backwards. Flat side should face the rear of the machine,

I have a Juki TL98E and when I got it forgot to put the presser foot down and obviously the needle broke several times. Now the thread keeps breaking. Thoughts?


Remove all the thread from the machine. Thoroughly check that there are no stray threads or lint stuck anywhere. Oil your machine per the instructions.

Make sure you are using a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine. Verify the thread path is correct. Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded correctly.

Set the tension to the midway point. Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric. Gently hold the thread tails while you take a couple of slow stitches.

If it is still not sewing correctly, it's quite possible the timing is off (which is common when a needle breaks). You'll probably need to take it for service.

Thread is being shredded and breaks


have you checked that you are threading it correctly? I have found that even one missed step can cause major problems. If it is threaded correctly then you can try oiling the machine per the manual instructions. I have also found that my machine works best when using Maxi-lock thread. Some of the cheaper threads are not able to hold up to the commercial speed of this machine.

Janome 1600p-DBX is not taking the bobbin


have you checked to see if the needle is inserted correctly into
the needle clamp,,all the way up into the needle clamp
& that the needle is turned the right way
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the
bobbin case.
if you have checked for this then the following is possible
it's very possible that when you broke the needle that it caused
the machine to jump time, & it would have to be taken to a sewing
machine shop to be retimed.

Clanking noise & won't sew


Are you sure you put the correct type of needle in? Normally, if you have any problem, cleaning and oiling will fix it. It sounds like you either didn't tighten the needle screw or you put the wrong type of needle in.

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

My needle broke. I replaced it. Now when I lower the needle to grab the bobbin thread it is hitting something. I have taken the bobbin case out and put it back in but it still wont work. Any suggestions? ...


It sounds to me like you have replaced the broken needle with one that is too long (wrong size).Check your manual for the proper needle size and look through your collection, or head down to the local sewing shop and pick up a new pack of proper sized needles. Now if the needle you replaced the broken one with is the same size, you most likely didn't loosen the set screw up enough and therefore didn't slide the needle up far enough before locking it in. Double check this.

Good Luck!
Chris
