Why won't needle threader go down low enough to meet the hole in the needle?
Try raising the needle so the threader does not have to go so low. The owner's manual should have instructions on what height the needle should be set for using the threader.
Here is the information from the owner's manual (Page 20):
Auto needle threading device
If using special threads which wind quickly off the
thread spool, attach a net to the spool before using.
Cut the net to match the size of the spool.
2 Thread spool
3 Spool pin
4 Spool cap
1. Guide the thread through the wire loop thread
guide (number "6") and gently pull the thread
2. Lower the presser foot.
3. Lower the needle threader lever until it stops.
Hook the thread into the guide and pull it
across to the right.
1 Wire loop thread guide
2 Needle threader lever
The needle threading device CANNOT be used
while the needle is LOWERED.
4. Push the needle threader lever toward the back.
Check to be sure that the hook has passed
through the eye of the needle and route the
thread under the metal guides and the hook.
Pull the thread toward you and check that it is
being held by the thread hook.
Here's where you can find the manual instructions:

WHY IS MY THREAD WRAPPING AROUND THE BOBBING IN THE SHUTTLE WHEN I PRESS START
THE BOBBIN HAS ONE METAL PART ON TOP AND ANOTHER PART THAT KEEPS THE BOBBIN FROM MOVING FORWARD. TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL AND WATCH WHICH PLACE DOES THE THREAD GET STUCK. IF IT IS THE ONE ON TOP THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE RAISED SLIGHTLY BY MAKING A PULL WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS. (VERY SLIGHT) IF IT GOES UNDER IT BUT STOPS AT THE AREA WHERE THE LITTLE INDENTATION IS THEN YOU WILL NEED TO LOOSEN ONE OF THE SCREWS AND SLIGHTLY TO ALLOW THE THREAD TO PASS BY. THE THREAD HAS GOT TO PASS THESE AREAS OR YOU WILL NOT SEW.
