Question about Juki TL-98Q

1 Answer

The needle broke with a large noise, and went into the bobbin casing area. I could not find the broken needle at first. After gently moving the wheel back and forth the needle fell through and I was able to remove the broken needle. Now There is a dragging sound and feel when the wheel is turned several times. Could this be a timing issue or is something bent inside that is causing this rubbing dragging sound and feel?

It sounds like the needle did some damage in there. Hopefully, it only shifted something around, but if you can't find a loose part that needs to be tightened back into place, look for a rough edge or surface somewhere. This may require a trip to a repair person.

Why doesn't the machine pick up the bobbin?


You may have fuzz in your bobbin case or under the plate. If you have canned air, spray it out. Are you using a pre-wound bobbin or one you wound yourself. I've found pre-wounds to be the best. Make sure your thread is pulled thru the bobbin case correctly and your needle up top is threaded correctly too. It's real easy to miss either one. Also, be sure to use a good backing when using fuzzy fabric. What size needle are you using. Too small of a needle may cause this also. For standard embroidery or sewing usually use an 11. Hope maybe this will help. Kindest regards,
Jody

Thread jammed in the bobbin area and unable to move the needle


Switch off machine. Snip as much thread away as possible, take tweezers and pull out all loose thread; remove bobbin case if possible; remove needle plate and work from the top; turn crank wheel by hand gently to move needle up and down. It should shift in time if you work carefully to remove all jammed threads.

I have a singer sewing machine 247 . I broke the needle and have replaced it now the bobbin will not turn.


CHANGE THE NEEDLE. TAKE OUT ALL OF THE BOBBIN CASING. CLEAN IT AND PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (THE INDENT AREA THAT EVERYTHING RIDES ON AND CAN'T BE REMOVED). LOOK FOR A BROKEN NEEDLE PART AND THREAD AND ANYTHING THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE. PUT EVERYTHING BACK. TURN THE HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU AND OBSERVE IF THERE IS ANYTHING TOUCHING THE NEEDLE. IF THERE IS THEN THAT WILL NEED TO BE FIXED.

Hi. I have a Juki DDL-5550N. While I was sewing the needle broke so I replaced it then the was a noise like a click and the the froze. ..I cannot move the wheel that moves the needle holder at all, it's...


first did you find the broken needle. A lot of times the part that broke off will fall down in your hook assembly and lock up the machine. That is what it sounds like. If its the drop in bobbin the take your needle plate off and check your bobbin case. It probably has popped out of where it should be. Take it out make sure there is nothing in the hook area and put the bobbin case back in. That should fix your probalem

Main motor lock, inappropriate needle position, after broken needle


The broken needle may be lodged in the bobbin housing. If you cannot locate, take it in for professional servicing. You may have put the timing out of whack.

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

Have you pulled apart the bobbin race area and checked for any bits of broken needle?

Is the clutch disengaged on the flywheel?

Otherwise, was the loud cracking noice coming from inside the machine case in which case it could be a gear internally that went and the needle breaking was just the result of this, in which case, time for a road trip to the service tech.

Untangle any mess under and around the needleplate very gingerly trimming threads as you go if necessary....remove and clear.

Undo the needle clamp and remove the remains of the needle.

Open the door for the bobbin and bobbin case and undo the clips holding the hook in place......don't force anything, just ease any tangle loose slowly.

You may want to take a photo of how it goes back together if unfamiliar, or lay the bits out sensibly, so you can replace easily later.

Inside the bobbin/hook area is the most likely region for thread jamming the motion of everything, so make sure all is clear and clean, then.......

Without replacing the bobbin or hook, test the handwheel after cleaning before re-assembly.

You may also want to check the take-up crank for thread jams........the small arm in the top cover that moves up/down to "take-up" the top thread has a cam attached to the top shaft and often tangles thread around the shaft, open the L side cover to access.......remove thread by unwinding handwheel manually ....again be patient and careful not to break threads.
