Perhap bobbin in wrong so it runs in the reverse direction to what it should? Also, check the needle is in the correct position and not too high or low?
I would carefully go though the threading instruction

When the bobbin thread shows on the right side, the needle tension is too tight or the bobbin thread, too loose, as shown in the middle drawing at right. When the needle thread shows on the wrong side, the needle tension is too loose or the bobbinthread, too tight, as shown in the bottom drawing at right.2 Nov 2008

I am doing something wrong in threading my Juki MO 2516. Help!


I don't own a Juki but I know with my
Bernette to always thread in the order shown on the diagram inside the front cover, usually upper looper, lower looper, then the right then left needles. Then raise the pressure foot and draw all four threads under it and out to the left rear of the sewing platform, lower the presser foot, press the foot pedal and hopefully, chain off.

Also check that you are getting the thread into the tension dials correctly, pull downwards and there should be resistance on the thread, if this isn't there at all, then take thread out and try threading around the dial again to seat thread in fully.

Sometimes, walking away, having a cup of tea, then coming back and starting fresh works. Clean and oil it, change needles, rethread from start to finish and hopefully it behaves.

Tangled thread on wrong side of fabric, I did the remedy as per manual but problem still exist


Unthread the machine fully. Remove the bobbin. Is the bobbin thread the same as the top thread? Is it a Quality thread (yes, cheapie thread can give big issues!!) Do you have several different threads wound onto the bobbin?? Is the bobbin thread wound on quite tight? If you push your finger nail into the thread wound onto the bobbin, it must not feel soft or spongy. Check if there is any roughness / burr on the any part of the shuttle hook. If so, remove it with 800 grade wet and dry abrasive or similar. Put in a NEW needle as per user manual specs (not a 'new' one you used before 'just for a little bit'.!) REPEAT - put in a NEW needle - amuse me!!. Place the bobbin into the bobbin holder (the CORRECT direction - yes there is a Right and a Wrong direction!), thread it ready to put back into the machine. BEFORE you do, hold onto the thread tail and let the bobbin and bobbin case dangle. Thread should slip thru when you give a gentle pull upwards. If no slip, loosen the tension on the tension finger a LITTLE. If it slides down easy, tighten it a little. Fit the bobbin into the machine. Lift the presser foot (this releases the top thread tension discs) Check there are no bits of thread or fluff between the tension discs Rethread the top thread - check the thread path is 100% correct. Hold onto the end of the needle thread and draw up the bobbin thread. Hold both threads, start to sew - check the result. Tip : If you use a different color bobbin thread (same brand etc etc) it will help you to see more easily what is going on. You should be seeing some of the bobbin thread color on the top side of the sewing. If not, INCREASE top tension a little - retry.If there is a lot showing, decrease top tension. Good luck

When I try to draw up lower thread, the upper thread will not catch the lower thread no matter what I do. I have cleaned the machine by brushing all the fuzzies and dust away.


Try a new needle, make sure that the flat side faces away from you. 90% of the time, the needle is the problem, the other 10% it is the timing needs to be reset by a repair shop because it requires special tools and expertise

Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
Then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle)
& use the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine to slowly
Lower the needle in the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick

My brother vx1125 won't draw up the lower tread


The most common reason why a machine won't pick up the bobbin thread is because the needle is inserted wrong. Check to make sure that the flat side of the needle shank is facing away from you. Another thing you might check is that the needle isn't bent.

Hope this helps!

Drawing up the lower thread


Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side to the back of the sewing machine.
