The bobbin presser on my Juki 2000 Qi sewing machine is loose, it spins around and will not let me wind a bobbin. What can I do to fix this?

Be sure you are following the instructions completely. However, it sounds like there could have been a problem with the bobbin winding unit since you purchased it. You can probably take it for service--may be covered under warranty if it was just recently purchased.

However, there is also a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) avlb from JoAnn's, Amazon, etc. for $30. They are usually battery and AC compatible. You can wind multiple bobbins quickly without having to unthread your machine and it saves wear n tear on your machine. Verify that your bobbins will work on the bobbin winder--some bobbins (mostly Singer) will not.

When I rewind my boobin, the thread is too loose. How do I adjust it on a JUKI DNU 1541-S?

You're saying the thread on the bobbin is loose/sloppy? That would be a result of the tension placed on the bobbin during winding. Make sure you are using the correct threadpath to wind the bobbin, or the winding tension needs to be adjusted.

I have juki 1541 industrial machine needle want pick up bobbin thread??

Is your needle inserted correctly? Try taking it out and inserting again. Is your bobbing threaded correctly? Try taking it out and re-threading. You might also try cleaning the bobbin area. The only other think I can think of is that you may have the wrong needle in.

I have a Juki 1541s the needle will not catch the bobbin

At this point I would take the manual and do a proper 'take apart and clean' on it. I have had this happen as well, and most often, even tho I don't see the creator of the issue, cleaning/oiling makes it fine. And make sure you use a good sharp needle. Nothing worse to make a machine not work correctly in a bad needle. Tighten up the needle in the machine as well. There could be fuzz on the hook within the machine.

Juki, DNU-1541S: thread was not picking up the bobbin thread. The hook shaft is not moving... After trying to move the needle in a reverse motion... Now the hand wheel will not move it is frozen in place.

You've got something binding in the bobbin area. Open up the entire bobbin/feed dog area plates so you can really see. Get your magnifying glass out and really examine the area for threads wound around things. DO NOT unscrew anything if you can help it. If you unscrew the wrong thing you can knock it completely out of time. (which may be why couldn't get the bobbin thread up anyway.)

If all this is intimidating to you... take it for repair.
