    I have the same problem. Periodically the needle threader just stops working! My repair center is more than an hour away and they keep the machine for weeks - it's maddening. Most of the time, they tell me there was nothing wrong with it when they tried it!!!

    Does anybody know what to do about this problem?

Check the needle length. My new needle was about 2 mm longer than the orginal which resulted in autothreader not working. I ground off difference from blunt end of new needle and autothreader now works. OR make sure you are using the correct length needle.

The parts for any autothreader are necessarily delcate considering the nature of its task. Check (without thread) to make sure the tongue that passes through the eye of the needle isn't bent a tiny bit causing it to strike next to the ****. Have seen this more than once.

The automatic threader wont pick up and thread needle. Can do manually but thats not easy?


to make manual threading of a needle easy buy a needle threader
it is a instrument that has a very fine piece of wire in a loop that you push through the eye of the needle , put the thread in that loop and pull the loop back out of the eye and the needle is threaded
available from most any shop that sells material , cotton , thread or sewing machine shops
cost --pack of 2 for $1.00 or there abouts

Cannot thread my PC 420


Try to push the lever down on a very fast and hard punch. Sometimes that is the way my machine works. Punch it!

Difficult to use auto needle threading


you thread the machine the normal way, using every thread guide, and if the automatic theader works it will thread the needle,
if the auto threader doesn't work, then it needs to be checked.
also make sure the needle is turned the correct way and inserted correctly into the needle holder.

Auto threader wont come all the way down...makes a poping noise


Personally, I wouldn't bother to fix it. Take a sharp pair of scissors and trim the end of the top thread at an angle and poke it through the eye of the needle. Autothreaders are usually the first thing to break.

AUTO THREADER CAME OUT


When you activated the threader, the needle was down and the threader came off or broke.

If it is not broken, you may be able to push it back into place.

Turn off the power and tip the machine back on some towels so it does not slip and with a flash light check the area where it fits and see if you can get it back into position.

If not, will have to thread the needle the old fashion way.

Check with your Brother dealer to see if they can look at the machine while you wait.

They may be able to get it back together or they will have to replace the threader.

It is possible they will have one in stock, or they may have to order it.

My auto thread component is not egaging the thread down to the needle.


Need more information. Is the auto thread component going down to the needle? Is
it missing the needle hole? If this is the problem, make sure that the needle position is in the correct position by pushing the needle position button. This will bring the needle to correct height for the thread to be inserted. I had a problem similar and it was because the needle was not in the correct position. When using the thread insertion press it slowly and watch to see where the insertion part is going.

Brother CS-80 will not always thread the needle when I depress the thread cannister.


I get this problem too. I found that it might be because I've moved the wheel while sewing previously and the needle doesn't go back to where it's supposed to be to be auto threaded correctly. To solve it, I just push the canister down until the threading parts are lowered. Once I see where the threader is positioned, I use the wheel to adjust the needle height to where the threader is, then I push the canister down all the way, and the needle is threaded. Hope it works for you!
