How do you change the needle on a Juki Sewing Machine? 

Did you know that changing the needle is the most common solution to sewing-related issues? Needles lose their sharpness after prolonged use, bend when pulled on the fabric, or nick when sewn over a straight pin. You will experience poorer stitch quality if the needle is degraded.

Depending on your sewing style and frequency, needles need to be changed quite frequently. For every new project, you begin, or whenever you begin stitching a material that is noticeably different and requires a different kind of needle, such as leather or something elastic, we advise using a new one. Broken threads skipped or uneven stitches, or even scrunched or damaged textiles might arise from failing to change your needle.

How do you fix the bobbin winder on a Juki Sewing Machine? 

If the bobbin winder on one of these machines is not functioning, it has probably caught up from a lack of lubrication. All you have to do to make sure is an attempt to manually turn the bobbin winder with your hands. You may need to look at the bobbin winder if it turns easily when you spin it but won't wind bobbins properly because there might be a more significant issue. If that is the case then check out our 2-minute video below to help you in fixing your bobbin winder. 

How do you re-time the hook on a Juki Sewing Machine? 

Prior to tackling the time, you should check for any other issues that are simple to resolve. It takes some expertise, some knowledge, and a lot of patience to adjust the time. If none of those other issues are the cause of your stitching issue, perform a timing test next. You must leave the needle threaded for this test, but you must take off the switch plate, plate covers, and bobbin case. Simply crank the hand wheel carefully to ensure that the shuttle hook is smoothly catching the thread. You must change the timing if it isn't. It will require some effort and your owner's manual to accomplish it. Depending on what your manual says, loosen the needle bar and slide it up or down if your sewing machine has timing marks. If there are no timing marks, fully lower the needle before fully raising it. Once the eye is 3/32 below the shuttle hook, move the needle itself. The needle bar must then be lowered to its lowest position using the hand wheel. The gears at the machine's base are now loosened, and adjustments are made until the distance between the hook and needle is between 0.01-0.16 inches. The recommended spacing for your particular model should be in your owner's manual. For more information check out our 15-minute video below on how to re-time the hook on your Juki Sewing machine.
