I think that your needle may be in backwards (flat side should face rear of machine) or you do not have your bobbin threaded right, such as the bobbin thread feeding the right way. Check your manual.

How to bring up bottom thread


Be sure you leave a 3-4" tail on the bobbin when you insert it. Hold the end of the top thread, turn the fly wheel toward you until the needle goes down into the bobbin, grabs the bobbin thread and pulls it up. Take both threads toward the back of the machine and pull out about 6". Hold both threads as you take the first stitch in your fabric.

Thread wont loop, it doesn't sew?


It loops, it's just that your shuttle isn't catching the loop. The loop is formed on the upstroke of the needle on the back or "scarfed" side of the needle. If the shuttle point doesn't catch that loop, no stitch.

First make sure you have a fresh needle. If still no stitch... take it in for service. (clean, lube and time)

Why will my machine not pick up my bobbin thread?


Bobbin or needle threaded wrongly? Is this a new machine? You need to make the first stitch by hand perhaps. Lower the needle into the needle plate by turning the hand wheel and raise carefully. It should bring up the bobin thread on a loop. catch and pull to back of machine. Now you can sew. I hope.

The top thread is looping every 30 or 40 stitches on my Juki DDL 8700. I put in a fresh needle, cleaned thoroughly, fresh throat plate and re-threaded. Any ideas? Thank you!


hi there
please check bobin case spring maybe need t adjust or rplace.
please check if you are wind bobin by correct way not too much titght or not too much loose. thread insaid bobin must be littel soft.
the last reason maybe the tip of stoper for hook id damaged and need to rplace.
best regards

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!

My machine is locking and apparently tangling up inside of the bobin case


You also need to adjust the pressure foot on the top of the machine. This regulates how much pressure is put on the fabric and the feed. Sounds like it is wrong somehow-maybe you need more pressure. Check the pressure adjustment is screwed in properly if it is this type which unscrews.The pressure adjuster Im reffering to is generally a silver colour and looks a bit like a basic tyre pressure guage or pressure cooker valve-it just got a cuple of lines on it and sits on the top left of the machine above the needle bar. The other thing which could cause problems is the bobbin tension-make sure it is running thru smoothly but not too loose.
