Try checking if the tiny hook is actually going through the eye of the needle. Mine wasn't and i bent it very gently with tweezers and now it works.

How do I change the bobbin winder on the Brother ls2125 sewing machine please


In the meantime, you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin threader at the local fabric store or online. They cost ~$25. A lot of sewists prefer using the stand-alone because it saves wear & tear on their sewing machine and they can also wind bobbins without interfering with the machine's setup.

Auto Needle Threader Won't Come Down


If it's still in warranty, send it in for repair. If it's not still in warranty, pull out a length of top thread and clip off the end with sharp scissors at an angle. Poke the end of the thread through the needle eye -- it should go through easily. Two second solution.

I changed my needle on my singer 3116 and the needle threader does not work anymore. Hope you have an answer! Thanks!


It is probably out of alignment, just turn your needle threader so that the little wire goes through the eye of the needle and will catch thread. Also, sometimes the needle you put in has too small of a hole to thread easily with the automatic needle threader.

Singer Inspiration 4228 Automatic Threading Problems


The small hook that passes through the eye of the needle is bent or broken. If it is only bent it can be straightened with a small screw driver. If it is broken it will need to be replaced. Most dealers can get this part for you for about $5.00

Singer Athena automatic needle threader does not work.


Check on the threader and see if the part that goes through the eye of the needle is bent. This is a very common problem. The threaders are becoming more and more difficult to replace. If the piece is bent, you can usually use a pair of tweezers to straighten it out.

Singer 2932 automatic threader


A new part is faster and easier but sometimes the problem is a bent hook( the tiny part which goes through the eye of the needle). Remove the needle to see the part better and pull the threader down. Look in the very center of the threader for the hook. It is probably pushed to the right.Using a small screwdriver or other thin piece of metal, force the hook back to the center. Try it and continue until it enters the eye again. By the way, a Singer dealer can get this part for you for under $10.
