Use a thicker needle.
Release the looper screw and move it back and close to the needle, but without touching.
Tight the looper screw.
Adjust the needle through (left and right) wider.

Juki industrial sewing machine. Machine will start sewing but after three stitches it stops.


You may need to adjust your tension dial with your fabric you are using and kind of thread, also adjust to thickness of fabric. Always use good sharp needles with your sewing and keep machine clean and oiled.

Juki Bar Tack Machine Cutter not working


I can't help. But I would recommend calling your local Juki Dealer for the name of a good repairman. Juki's are expensive you don't want to be futzing about if you aren't an expert.

What is a walkimg foot machine


A walking foot is a foot with feed dogs, or a similar fabric moving mechanism. This is useful when there are many layers of fabric or slick fabric. Then the top layer of fabric can be made to travel at the same rate as the lowest layer (the feed dogs) or an slightly different rate. Then the fabric layers will stay even for the entire length of the seam.

A walking foot sewing machine has this feature built in. Thus you don't need to adjust extra hardware to keep your fabric aligned. (On some, specific feet are needed to use the feature. However, it is easier to adjust than the separate walking foot that I have for my older Singer sewing machine.)

I hope this helps.

Needle keeps breaking when sewing


Make sure the needle is in correctly. On most machines the flat part goes towards the back of the machine. Also make sure you are using the correct size needle for the type of thread and fabric you are using. Thicker fabrics such as denim and upholstery fabrics will require a thicker needle, like a 100 (16).

Sewing with drapery material


Switch back to regular thread. Upholstery thread is used for seams that will get lots of stress (as in upholstery; although I use regular thread in upholstery and have no problems). For draperies, regular thread is fine.
