Question about Juki DDL-8700

1 Answer

I have a walking foot model. The main problem is it goes around about 5 revolutions and then stops. I can turn the hand wheel back and it will do another several revolutions and comes to a complete stop again and I imagine it is in the same place where it is stopping. It is rattling in the area of the bobbin mechanism. I just got it back from the timing being adjusted and the mechanic made some minor other adjustments. What do I do now?

It is still a timing problem. Hopefully the mechanic that worked on it will warranty his work. Because this is a timing issue.

My needle stopped going up and down- what can I do?


Hello Lauri, If your hand wheel rotates when you press the foot or knee controller but the needle bar nor the feed dogs move, You may have a problem with the thumb knob at the end of the hand wheel. Turning the thumb knob to the left (counter clockwise) disengages the main shaft when you wind the bobbin. Turning the thumb knob to the right (clockwise) engages the main shaft when you want to sew. Not all sewing machines have this feature so it may not pertain to your model. If you list your model number I may be able to give you better information.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    I purchased an Elna 7000 on E-Bay.Wonderful machine. I also purchased a 492000-20 walking foot for it. I can not find instructions on how to attach the walking foot to the machine.


    I'm assuming that this is a generic style walking foot for low shank machines and it will fit your Elna?
    To attach it, you will see a long lever arm at the front of the foot and the little curved bracket at the back of the foot.

    Remove your usual foot and the clip on foot holder by undoing the thumb screw. Now fit the walking foot on instead by putting the lever arm around the needle bar and the curved bracket around the pressure bar and then putting the thumb screw back into place and screw up tight to hold the foot in place. Now lower the pressure foot and manually wind your machine forward a few stitches. As the needle bar goes up and down, it should move the long lever arm too which works the walking foot teeth gripping the top layer of fabric with each stitch.

    Trust this helps.

    Not really a problem. Just trying to attach the walking foot. I removed the shank and screwed the walking foot on. However, there is a white, plastic, two-pronged gadget on the right side of the foot that...


    That would be the drive arm of the walking foot. It goes around the needle bar clamp and when the needle goes up and down it makes the foot work. Take off the presser foot screw, attach the arm around the needle clamp, and reset the screw. Many feet are made from plastic so be careful not to break when tightening. It needs to be fairly secure though, lots of movement when it sews. Use at 1/2 speed or less.

    Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

    3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
    4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
    5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

    6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
    7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
    Note
    • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
    • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

    8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
    Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
    If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

    9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
    (For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
    10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
    11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
    12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
    13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


    Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.
    woundbobbin3.jpg ac0993.jpg Wound evenly ac0994.jpg Wound poorly


    Note
    • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
    • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

    Elna walking foot


    If your SU is an Air Electronic model i.e. 80's model, Elna didn't make a walking foot to fit. However, if you've got a walking foot that is the same height from sole plate to the screw fitting as a standard Elna foot then you could give it a try. The walking foot connects to the presser bar with a screw but the needle bar also needs to hook into a secondary lever on the side of the walking foot to make the foot actually move. Probably sounds very confusing . Check the movement of the foot manually by hand turning the fly wheel to see how it works before you actually use with the motor to minimise any problems if the foot doesn't fit.

    Also you'll probably only be able to do straight stitch with this foot due to the clearance around the needle plate.

    Almost all home sewing machines are a fixed presser foot type - the cloth is fed by the serrated ratchets on the bed under it. Expensive walking-foot sewing machines do have a walking foot in addition to the lower serrations. Those usually start at $1000and up.
