icon {Q}Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise. {A}The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen nor operate. Also make sure the presser foot/lever is down so the pin can come up. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Refer to page 6 of the User’s Manual. The second section demonstrates how to remove/replace the pin. There is no extra pin in the accessories package, as it it already installed on the machine. Mike P.

Juki TL-98E sewing machine is almost identical to the Brother PQ-1500S, except the Brother has exclusive pin feeding mechanism, a longer 7 mm versus 6 mm stitch length, and several extra feet (invisible zipper and fabric seperating foot). Juki has an exclusive foot control switch for auto thread trim and raising needle all in one operation (saves time) Both machines do equally well straight seaming, but have varied in past freemotion quilting performance which has now been corrected. Brother also has a heavier duty walking foot attachment. The Juki TL98E is made in Japan and the Brother PQ1500S is made in Taiwan.

Why does my needle thread break on freemotion when straight stitch sewing is fine.
For freemotion quilting on a frame, please try Schmetz Size 16 Denim needles, A&E Signature cotton quilting thread, fabric pressure guage at 1/2 way (down or up on the window gauge),and make sure the quilt is down flat against the flatbed of the machine so fabric won't ride up and down on the needle (flagging). Also run the machine faster and move the fabric slower, so the needle won't bend in the fabric. Also feel for any needle burrs on the rotary hook, needle plate or bobbin case that might catch thread. Burrs can be polished off with Crocus cloth from the hardware stores. Please advise what works or doesn't work for you. John Douthat, Owner & Tech.

Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise.
The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen or operate. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Also the presser foot must be in the down position before the pin feed will come up in normal counterclockwise rotation of the hand wheel.
