Juki Cleaning

After purchasing a second Juki to go with the mid arm frame I bought, the woman I bought them from gave me a few tips - among them was how to clean the Juki. It has a small lid that you can remove to clean a portion of the underside of the machine, but what no one tells you is that you can remove the screws and take the whole bottom off. 

I've got a before and after photo for you to see. 
For the first time, I had DH help me, but it certainly can be a one person job. I vacuumed and brushed out the whole underside; put the bottom back on...and done! 


  1. Thank you so much for posting this! Awesome! I'm going to do mine tomorrow!

  2. it looks nice and clean! i've done this before and it's a good feeling to have it freshly cleaned, doesn't it? in fact, i bet mine could use it...thanks for the reminder! :)

  3. Wow! It's amazing how much lint they collect. I just checked mine and I don't know how to take the bottom off, but while it was unplugged I found the place that's been storing the lint that keeps falling down onto my sewing! Thanks!

  4. I'm so happy you found my blog which gave me a chance to visit yours!
    This is a great post, I'll be cleaning mine tonight! Thank you.

  5. Wow..this is exciting. I wonder if I could do this on my Janome machines.
