You might also try replacing the needle with a new needle. Be sure you are using the right needle and thread for the fabric you are sewing. Ball Point (and dull/damaged) needles will make a loud thumping noise when sewing woven fabrics because the needle does not have a sharp point to pierce the fabric. A sewing instructor once told us that it is puzzling why sewists spend hundreds of $$$ on the sewing machines we use and refuse to spend a couple dollars to install new needles.

Have you taken your throat plate off and cleaned that out? You have to take a stubby short screwdriver and remove the throat plate. Sometimes, lint and cloth build up in there and it looks like felt almost. I was surprised when mine had it, I always followed the standard way of cleaning and lubricating until my friend told me about this. I was shocked, to say the least, that she was right. And my machine quieted right down. Hope this solves your problem

Sewing machine isn't sewing at all...got this 2 months ago, used it 4 times, began breaking thread..ready to sell.


Breaking thread could be caused by a couple of things:
1) top tension too tight
2) machine not threaded correctly
3) poor quality thread (don't use bargain thread)
4) needle not compatible with thread/fabric
5) needle installed incorrectly

First thing to try is remove all the thread from the machine, RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk, then re-thread from the beginning--make sure you do not miss any steps.

Usually the factory standard tension setting is with the dial set at the mid-way point between the low and high number. The tension is correct when both the upper thread and the bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

As a reminder, since your machine is a mechanical, be sure that you are cleaning and oiling on a regular basis. Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil (not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the old oil from grandma's sewing basket). Follow the instructions in the manual. If you want to do a thorough job, open the top and free arm cover. Slowly hand rotate the handwheel and apply 1-2 drops of oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Do NOT oil rubber, plastic parts or belts. Be sure to apply a drop on the shuttle race every time you begin a new project. Oiling according to the instruction manual should be done every 40 hours of sewing time. If in storage, oil every six months.

Thread on bobbin does not attach to needle when needle is turned down.


Depends what was causing the noise. It could merely have been the build-up of lint and thread. However, something else could be the cause.

First: Install a brand new needle. A bent, damaged, old needle will frequently cause noise because it is striking something it should not. A dull needle will also make a thunking sound as it tries to penetrate the fabric. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing...a very inexpensive fix!

Also, be sure to following the oiling instructions (if any) in your manual. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil and apply only 1-2 drops in each spot as instructed.

If the top thread still fails to pick up the bobbin thread, it is likely the machine has been knocked out of time. Take it for service.

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

Jams up when attempting to sew, making loud noise. Thread mass under fabric when able to cut loose from machine.


Thread jams underneath usually are caused by top thread tension issues. Things to check:
top tension discs are clean and no thread traces caught in there, tension is set to medium number usually 4 or 5 and that the top thread is running freely from the thread spool, correctly thread through the tension discs, and down to the needle. Lower the pressure foot and pull the thread from just above the needle; it should feel firm resistance if under tension correctly.

As you've had a good jam up, good idea to now remove the bobbin, needle plate and bobbin holder (refer to your manual if you have never done this before) and clean out the hook area well, look for any fine thread remants and brush out any lint etc. Oil the rotary hook area as per your manual. Now reassemble, and rethread everything again checking that the bobbin thread is clicked into the tension spring and that the top thread is through the tension discs correctly.

Also, pop in a new needle, flat shank to the back, then try again.

Good luck with your machine.

Left needle thread breaking


My first inclination would be to change the needle. I could have been defective from the beginning. If it will serge without left needle, then you know that everything else is threaded correctly. Good luck.
