If you mean irregular length it may be the arm that holds the feed teeth ha sworked loose slightly to see if this is it the faster you go on a max stitch length the shorter it gets. If this is the case tilt the machine head back and see were the arm is fixed at the rear sholud be 2 screws that go on to a long arm running the length of the machine and make sure these are tight. This should help.

Why wont my Juki DDL-8700 form a stitch?


machine is out of time and u probably have burrs on the hook since you broke the plate with a needle probably from pulling fabric and bending the needle. you instruction manual will tell u how to time machine and its really very simple. all u have to do is take off feeder plate, loosen the 3 screws that hold the hook then lower the needle with the wheel until the needle just starts to rise. bring the loose hook point to i/16 " fron the needle and tighten hook screws. machine must be tilted back to do this whole operation. it helps to have a short screwdriver to tighten the hook screws. remove burrs with lite emory paper stroking in the sale direction as the hook.

My juki 8700 h frays thread while trying to sew


Hello Daniel, I suggest you start with a new needle. Back off the needle thread tension and the bobbin thread tension to a minimum and see how it sews. If it does not ravel the thread, you can increase the tensions until you acquire the stitch you want.

I have a Juki DDL 227. Top thread keeps breaking instantly


Well, you've not checked "Everything" but you have checked the common things.

Do you have any idea of where it is actually breaking? Re-thread your machine and see if you can determine exactly where the break occurs.

Sometimes a damaged needle throat plate will break threads... as will a burr on the hook in the bobbin area. Also if there is a burr or rough spot on the thread spool it will sometimes catch and cause breakage.

Good luck

My machine won't stitch, and the tensions seems to be very high, even after adjusting it.


Hi, if your bobbin has thread, check to make sure the bobbin is inserted into the shuttle correctly. If it is loaded correctly, check to see if the needle is able to pull the thread through the throat plate.
If it doesn't have thread, then all your sewing machine will do is make little holes because the bobbin thread is what catches the sewing needle thread to form the lock stitch to sew the material together . Check your manual on the sewing machine for where it is and how to put thread into it.
