How do I clear a cotton jam in a Juki Frou Frou HZL-11 Sewing machine

Try removing the needle and the presser foot from the machine. If there are threads above the needleplate, gently try to remove those. Then go below the needle plate and, using tiny scissors, try clipping and gently pulling out threads, if necessary, with tweezers.

Can you use a smaller bobbin on a juki du-181n?

You should use the bobbins recommended for your machine. Anything else could cause havoc and, at the very least, will not sew properly.

Why is my juki sewing machine sewing loose bottom stitches?

How thoroughly have you cleaned out the hook race area? Take a clean piece of cloth, and wipe it out. Look for fluff, bits of thread, etc.... You might need to tighten up your bobbin casing. If there's a screw there, get a flat edge screwdriver and very gently tighten it a little bit, then try sewing a scrap of lamb. You also may need to interface your lamb, so it's more stable.
List the model number of your machine, so anyone replying will know exactly what you're dealing with.

Thread caught in bobbin feader -Juki

Try a different thread. Did it act ok on that thread? Usually it is because the shuttle is only catching part of your thread because it is set for a different diameter of thread.. The other possibility is that you changed the size of your needle. Were you using a 16 X 231 in a size 18? The 16 X 231 is the needle length and the 18 is how big the needle is and the proper size for the thread and material you are using. E mail me through fix it and I can give you a couple more things to try.

Juki dnu-1514s The machine is threaded and and the bobbin is loaded. When I sew, the machine does not make any stitches. It's as if the machine is not threaded and I'm just running fabric...

Your bobbin system isn't engaged. this can happen for several reasons, mostly when things are a little out of whack.
The 1541 has a 'clutch' it located near center on the bottom surface and is a silver circle below the 'arm'. Bring the needle all the way down, now push the clutch and hold while you turn the wheel back (top away from you) eventually the clutch will click when everythings aligned and engage the bobbin system again.

When the needle goes down into the bobin area below, it catches on the "round about", so the whole point is that it misses the thread, and doesn't catch it, what can i do to fix this??

It sounds like your problem is as simple as either a bent needle or a bobbin casing that is inserted improperly. First, change your needle being mindful of the type of fabric (and thread) you are using (e.g. Size 11 ballpoint for a light knit or a size 18 jeans needle for denim). Make sure that the bobbin casing is set in correctly, and that the bobbin goes in the correct way. (i.e. Counter-clockwise for a drop-in style bobbin). This should solve your issue. Happy sewing!

My bobbin stitch is loose. I have tried adjusting tension and have changed the needle.

A. To correct loose stitches, try the following: (1) Balance the thread tension. If the stitches are loose on top of the fabric, decrease the tension to the next lower number. If they are loose on the underside set the tension to the next higher number. (2) Make sure the needle/upper thread follows the threading path. (3) Check to see that the bobbin case is threaded properly. (4) Use a different size needle. For fine fabrics, use a smaller needle (size 9, 11); medium-weight fabrics require a size 14 or 16. And use a size 18 or "Denim" needle for heavy corduroy or denim.

I just bought a used juki DDL 8500 industrial sewing machine. It didn't come with manual. I also can't find a bobbin casing. I feel very foolish. There appears to have a bobbin winder on the side....

I just bought the same machine and mine came with a photocopied manual. There is indeed a bobbin winder on the side, there's a flat section on the side of the bobbin winder closest to you, if you push that forward it connects a wheel attached to a bobbin spoke, to the belt that runs between the machine and the motor. To wind the bobbin, put the bobbin on sideways onto the axis of the wheel that is on the inside of the machine, and push the bobbin winder forward.
If you're looking for where the bobbin case is located on the machine, if you look underneath the machine on the left hand side, there should be a metal belly, on the left side of the belly is an opening, and in there sits the bobbin casing.
I think you were asking for either one of these answers, I'm on here troubleshooting for my Juki DDL-8500, good luck with yours, hopefully I can find what I need to know too!
