If trial and error by adjusting knobs gets you no where, double check that a piece of thread isn't catch in any of the guides, holding them fully open. Pull a thread through all the guides towards the needle, by cutting at the reeel end, and look for a snag; good luck

Hi I just purchased a used Juki DDL-555. 1) It will not catch the bobbin thread. 2) it will not sew forward and feed the fabric along (it sews in reverse just fine). Can someone please help?

the material movement is set by the forward/ reverse knob or lever
not picking up the thread can be needle thread tension too loose
it can be needle hook timing

Why is the thread very easy to pullout of a seam?

Your thread tension is too loose OR you are using a too long a stitch eg Basting stitch. Try gradually tightening the upper tension first.

Thread in bobbin assembly catching.

Could bee a few things, need a size 14/16 in needles. LONG stitch length. Also make sure you the threads in the top tensions correctly ie: one thread in each disc.

Loose upper tension

Before you play with any tension dials... check your thread spool. If you are using an ordinary spool with the tread end catch cut into the rim of the spool and you don't orient that away from the direction of the thread travel... it can catch and cause you issues similar to what you mention.

So rethread the machine... making sure that catch is pointed toward the bottom of the spool pin and make sure that presser foot lever is up when you thread the machine.

Then do a nice long test stitch on the same type of material. If it is still giving you issues tighten the upper tension by small increments then re-test. If after a few times you still have this issue... examine the entire thread path for burrs and make sure the needle is the right type and size for your material and thread.

Good luck.

My model 2335 white sewing machine jams, and the the tensions are off. The thread clumps up on the bottom of the material, and the bottom thread is too loose.

here are some suggestions
change the needle
rethread the machine using every thread guide
check to see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever
clean under needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint
adjust the top thread tension one number or letter higher until
the stitches look normal

What causes the bottom stitch to look like it's catching the material when I sew?

try changing the needle--flat side to the back of the machine
the needle & thread & fabric have to be compatable
light weight fabric requires a different needle than medium to heavy weight fabric
if you do not have a manual check with bernina customer service about one
try a top tension of 3 or 4
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread or lint

Bobbin thread is not entering material. Upper thread is in large very loose loops around bobbin thread on underside of material.

Sounds like top thread is not under tension at all. Rethread machine referring to your manual threading diagram and ensure the thread is passing between the tension discs.

If you lower the pressure foot and pull the top thread just before the needle, it should feel firm and not pull easily. If not, its not under tension.

What number is your tension dial set to, if you turn the dial while pulling the thread as above, can you feel any difference in the resistance?

Also a good idea to clean the tension discs regularly, turn number to zero, then run the selvage edge of a piece of clean cotton offcut between the discs. Thread sheds fibres and dye particles and this can build up with time so good practice to clean this regularly.

It is possible that the top tension device has broken, they sometimes have a little spring in there which may have failed.

But try these things first, then if no luck, might be time for a service technician to take a look.

The tension is off, thread very loose and loopy underneath. How do I fix the tension? I have misplaced my manual is there a free one on line? Betty

Download a free one at under customer support. Just enter 3116. Your top threading is not right. Try pulling the top thread with the presser foot up, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, the thread should barely move. This will seat the thread in the discs.

Thread jamming at bobbin

Check to be sure the thread is not catching on the bottom of the bobbin. If it is, replace the bobbin because it is sprung. If it is not catching there, then you need to check your tension to see that it is working properly. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}. Pull the thread through the tension assemblyand test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 orsomething in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through thetension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. Itshould pull noticeably harder.) If it doesn't do this, you need to remove the thread or lint that is stuck between the tension discs. Open them with a small screwdriver and clean them out.
If this doesn't solve your problem, remove the bobbin case and check the hook for rough spots.. If you find some, buff with an emery stick until smooth.

Stitching to loose

There are many websites from were you can download manuals. Just type "sewing machine manuals" in gooooooogle and they will list them. The cheapest option is 10 US dollars in pdf. format.

Your looper tension is not correct. Make sure the cotton is between the tension disks by pulling down on the thread when you thread the machine.
