My wife has a Baby Lock Enterprise 10 needle embroidery machine. The automatic threader is not working for any of the needles. Help

This can be a tricky adjustment, Make sure you have the correct needles inserted correctly. The hookwire isn't lined up properly with the needle bars holding the needles. Expensive machine to break trying to fix it. Have a trained professional Take a look at the threader mechanism, you will have the opportunity to learn something about your machine in the process.

My threed will not come up from the bobbion

Manually feed the bobbin thread through the needle top plate and try sewing. The result might give you a further clue as to what's going on. If its not something as obvious as excessive tension or incorrect routing of the bobbin thread, it might be the clearance between the needle and the needle hook. Did you try changing needles in case it's a bent needle?

After replacing needle, needle threader won't work. What am I doing wrong?

You probably haven't inserted the needle fully into the needle bar. Try that first.

Also check that there isn't a bit of needle shank in the holder.

Good luck.

Singer esteem ii wont sew after the needle wouldnt go down and got fixed. when it does sew it skips stitches. what do I do?

Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

if you can send me the model number of the machine,, I'll see if

Singer 7422 bobbin thread bunching up

I assume you checked to see there are no needle bits in the bobbin case holder.
Without looking at the machine it is difficult to diagnose the problem. It could be any one or a combination of problems, timing, needle bar height, damage to the hook and base etc.
I strongly suggest you have it looked at by a sewing machine tech.
