    There is nothing caught in the bobbin area -- it is more with something with the hand wheel

  • Catherine Burkett Apr 04, 2011

    My husband & I took the machine entirely apart and found nothing caught so we ended up taking it to a repair shop.

    Thanks for the help

    I think I will have no further problem once the repair man looks it over

    Thank you

    EXACT SAME PROBLEM - SIEZED UP SOLID WHILE FREE MOTION QUILTING - TOOK OFF THE FOOT - UNSCREWED THE NEEDLE - SNIPPED NEEDLE IN HALF TO PULL IT OUT OF THE QUILT - REPLACED NEEDLE - PROBLEM FIXED - PROBABLY CAUSED BY A DULL NEEDLE

    loosen the hand wheel, remove the bobbin , and see if it turns.

    its knida impossible for us to guess a problem on the head without actually being there to see whats happening. The suggestions we give are actually troubleshooting steps that we go through, sometimes the first one is the solution and at other times we need to go through a bunch of steps. Basically we arent on location and depend on you as our eyes on ears , so the next best guess is based on your previous response. I'm sorry you guys took the whole thing apart so quickly and without a service manual. as well. Well at least the shop will sort it out. regards.. let me know it it doesn't..

While trying to free motion quilt on my juki TL-98Q, it becomes very hard to move the quilt whenever I come to a seam. I have already turned the pressure foot dial to the lightest setting. I simply


I have never used a machine to free motion quilt. That said, I have had issues sewing over thick seams. Since your machine runs smoothly otherwise... I think it is the thickness of the seamed area that is causing your problem. It may be too late but you could try trimming your seams so the layers fabric graduate to full thickness. Or you could use a chop stick or popcicle stick to press down on the thickness as you guide the machine over the seam. I also suggest that you Fan your seam allowances where your blocks come together. You can see how that is done here. http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/videos/v/62207505/machine-minute-bulky-intersections-fanning-seam-allowances.htm

Bobbin does not stitch


Have you changed your needle lately? Have you checked the needle/shuttle timing?

Started machine quilting; first pass went just fine, rolled up quilted portion, then started machine again but the bobbin thread broke and continues to break. Took out bobbin, reset it in case, etc. N


from what you said about the bobbin thread continues to break
check for burrs in the following area--even the smallest burr can cause problems
bobbin
bobbin case
needle plate
needle could be damaged
or bad thread

I was recently given a TL-98Q Juki. I have it set up on a long arm quilting machine. I have put two sheets with cotton batting between on the machine. Everything is set up. I started the machine and...


Be sure you have installed a brand new needle. If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, the machine may be out of time.

If the presser foot does not set firmly on the fabric, then that is what you want for free motion quilting. However, if you mean the presser foot is sloppy (wobbly), then the attachment may be loose or the presser foot is worn.

Juki TL98Q long arm quilting machine: can sew perfectly then all of a sudden a series stitiches are skipped. Why?


Using a long carpenter's level, level up your frame. Low areas in the frame can cause skipped stitches. Also, check the wheel sensor wheels-are they making good connection? These can lose connection when you quilt in certain directions.

I am having problems with my Juki TL98E skipping stitches when I free-motion quilt. I have cleaned it well, put in a new needle but still having problems. When I stitch forward, it's ok, but when I try to...


It is a timing issue. I have a TL98E. The needle bends a bit when free motion quilting, moving the needle away from the hook, thus missing the thread. Try to put in a larger needle, or have the timing changed so that the hook "kisses" the size needle that you want to use. Tammy

Needle thread breaks while quilting on machine frame


My friend and I both have the Juki 98Q but on different frames - we were both having problems (needles breaking, thread getting tangled) we removed the thin metal thing inside the bobbin case and have had no problems since (over a year now!).

Tension


Several things to try, I have this set up and after six months I'm still trying to get some issues resolved.  First make sure the machine is treaded correctly, the Juki doesn't thread like most machines, make sure you have the bobbin going the correct way.  After the machine then it has to be in the frame which means that the fabric is most likely to tight, this is a common problem, if you are bending the bars then it is too tight.  Also, look at how the quilt is in relationship to the frame, is it level?  As you quilt and roll, you will need to adjust the frame up, the quilted part should not drag on the machine and the to be quilted part should not be below the machine.  It is a critical that the frame and the machine be even with each other, if not the machine will try to pull and won't sew correctly.  Also, another tip, after each quilt change your needle, the reason is that free motion is technically bending the needle.  Hope all this helps.
