Hello.  I hope someone can help me with a problem I have with my Juki TL-2200 QVP longarm.  When I stitch moving my machine left or moving it away  from me the thread shreds.  This doesn’t happen going right or towards me.  I have cleaned it, oiled and changed my needle.  I have tried different thread and it still shreds.   Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

Sounds like needle flex could be a big part of your problem.  A larger needle and a shorter stitch length will reduce flex and should help. How old is the machine?  If it is a little old I would be checking for worn bushings in the needle bar.  I had this happen to me with one of our APQS machines years ago with a new shipment of needles, same brand and size.  The cure was to redo the timing and all was good.

 

Let us know what you find.

what size needle are you using? It's possible that the eye of the needle is too small for the thread to pass through.
