    Thank you for your response geeemarie. I actually ended up taking the sewing machine back to the store for an exchange. It was a manufacturer's defect. My new machine is running great!

Either your sewing machine needs to be cleaned of lint and dust in this area or your needle is bent. I would do the cleaning and install a new needle. Also make sure that your bobbin is sitting properly and tight in its case. Good Luck!

Skipping stitches on bobbin thread Juki DDL555-5. any suggestions?


sounds like u have the wrong needle or machine is out of time. if its a needle feed machine u might have the wrong bobbin case. try lowering the needle slightly. machine is easy to time. theres a mark on the needle bar which u align with the bottom of the bar guide then loosen the hook (3 screws) and move hook till it just starts to meet the needle. careful of side to side movment. bobbin case has to remain in the finger.

Needle hits bobbin case


The bobbin case has to be positioned properly in the race. When the stitch plate is removed the bobbin case can be inserted in the wrong orientation to the stop finger. So if I can the presser foot location 12 o'clock, the tension screw for the bobbin case should be at 6:15 and the stop, which I think looks like a little nose, should be at 5:45. This little nose like projection should nuzzle up against the stop. If the needle hits the bobbin case when the bobbin case is inserted correctly, go see a dealer, your machine is broken.

I have a hyundai 8 stitch sewign machine been working brillant but last night it kept missing the tread and the thread breaking or jabbing . today looking at it i see when it jabs the Bobbin Case Inner...


The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread


Bobbin thread breaks


1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly


2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder


3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly


4. Lower thread tension is two tight

if the sewing machine has a top loading bobbin, you may have to have the sewing machine checked to see if there is something wrong with the bobbin case or the hook and hook race.
I suggest try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed
also try another bobbin
rethread the sewing machine top and bobbin, using every thread guide.

It wont stitch tee/shirt material it misses stitchs


If machine misses stitches consistently, it can be several things.
Needle not installed correctly, not threaded correctly, Bobbin case not installed correctly, make sure the bobbin itself is inserted correctly and spinning in the correct direction.
Finally, machine may need service the timing is off. All actions of a sewing machine are carefully "timed" to form a stitch while sewing. Sewing things that were too heavy for the machine or you hit the bobbin case while sewing can knock the machine out of adjustment.
Let a professional do the maintenance on your machine. Some may opt to show you how to do more in depth maintenance yourself at home.
Cheers,

Needle breaks due to bobbin case slippage. How do


The maintenance section of your instruction book shows how to install the bobbin case. Be sure the needle is at it's highest position to do this.

The bobbin case should never slip once it is properly installed.

If the needle continues to hit the case, the machine needs to be serviced by an authorized Brother dealer if you are the original owner to prevent invalidation of the warranty.

If you try to adjust the timing you could run into additional problems.

Picking up bobbin thread


First easy thing to check, are you using the correct length needle.
If this is not the problem then somehow the needle bar has moved and the the needle depth is to high or the timing is wrong..
Unless you really know what you are doing then I am afraid a sewing machine tech needs to reset the needle depth and subsequently the timing.
