Question about Juki Sewing Machines
Take your presser foot off and the screws out of the plate. Lift the plate slightly and turn your stitch length regulator to the longest stitch that you use. Now set the plate back down on the feed dogs and see if it will sit evenly without binding. Loosen the feed dog screws and see if you can move the feed dogs enough to allow the plate to sit down. Now, retighten the feed dog screws and rotate the hand wheel towards you to see if they will move freely without binding on the plate. If all well, replace your plate screws and then rotate the hand wheel towards you again.
If this doesn't fix it, you may need to purchase a different # feed dog/plate. You might check to make sure that the items you purchased were meant for a Juki. Mostly they will fit different brands but sometimes it is easier to make sure that the combination of feed dog/plate is actually meant for your Juki.
The other thing you can do is to call a mechanic to readjust the machine to make these work (a more expensive option to be sure!). This has NOTHING to do with your timing. If your machine made good stitches before you change the feed dogs/plate. It should make good stitches after you change it. Timing is all to do with stitch formation and not stitch feeding. Good Luck!

You should be able to adjust the pressure on the presser foot. Check your user manual or see an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for assistance. They are usually eager to help.

Make sure bobbin thread isn't laying on top of the bobbin. If you can see the bobbin thread when you look through the plastic lid that fits over bobbin, this could be culprit for sure. Easy fix!! Remove bobbin, put a felt spool cap holder into the bobbin case, put bobbin in making sure thread goes counter-clockwise. Make sure thread goes into tension slots. Pull thread all the way back so it falls into hole at left side of silver piece (stitch finger). Pull thread in needle toward you to raise bobbin thread up. When you begin sewing, the thread should now stay put and not jump out of place. If thread lays on bobbin, machine won't stitch properly. Felt spool holder will take up slack so bobbin stops rocking and jumping which causes bobbin thread to misbehave. Hoe this helps! One more thing: put in fresh needle in case you bent previous one, making sure flat side is away from you. Flat side behind, more rounded side facing you. Jimmy

try the feed dog lever again if you can move the feed dog lever and
the feed dogs respond going up and down then you know that
the feed dogs are working and are not broke
but if they do not respond then they need to be checked to see what's
wrong with them

Testimonial: "Thank you Debbi, I was also in touch with the Pfaff lady who sold me the machine at the Houston Quilt Festival in 2007. It turns out the mechanism which moves the feed dogs up and down was disengaged and I managed to re-insert it myself. Incredibly lucky, my heart was in my mouth as I thought I will either bust it or fix it. I live in Venezuela so fixing it myself was a good option. You were quite right that they were not responding, thanks for the help. Juliet"
