Automatic needle threader won't work on brother pe-770


Always make sure the hand wheel is at the exact top. Have you replaced the need recently? If it's bent, then the threader will not work. If the needle is loose or not all the way to the top in the holder, it will also cause the threader to not work.

The threader to the needle wont catch the thread


It takes some getting used to, to get these to work properly. Practice. First make sure your needle is in correctly and fully. then make sure that when you engage the needle threader the tiny little hook goes through the eye of the needle. If it doesn't it won't work at all.

Then follow the instructions in the book. Make sure the thread is on the proper side of the tiny hook....

Good luck

Automatic threader doesn't work


The automatic needle threader is very tiny and easily bent or damaged; however, it is designed not to turn if needle is not at its most upper position to protect the threader. Turn the hand wheel until the needle is at the highest position. If the needle is not aligning with the threader hook, you will need to replace it. And you can replace the needle threader hook if it is bent. I hope this helps!Jimmy

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.

The automatic threader does not work


Please refer to page 33 of the user's manual.

The needle has to be in the highest position for the needle threader to align with the eye of the needle.

Threaders will not work if the eye of the needle is too small for the wire on the threader.

Sometimes the wire gets bent if it was forced against a needle that was too small or if the needle was not in the correct position for the threader to work.

The wire can be bent back into place, but you have to be careful as it is very thin and can break.

If the wire is broken, the dealer can order a new threader - they are not very expensive and are easy to install.

How do I use the automatic threader? The diagram in the instruction manual just shows the threader but doesn't show how to get the thread in.


When you have the threader engaged to the needle hold the thread between your two hands horizontally and slide the thread behind the needle starting from the bottom up until you feel it stop then pull the threader gently out toward the back of the machine. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get the hang of it

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.

Automatic needle threader on brother se-350


Hi - first, make sure that you raise the needle to as far up as it will go. When you thread the machine, make sure you pass the thread through each number along the path - there is a hook on the threader mechanism that is really easy to miss. It is always a good idea to refer to the book when you are having a problem.

You might also try changing the needle. The threader has a teeny hook that goes in to the eye of the needle from behind, grabs the thread, and pulls it back thru the eye of the needle.

The threader can go out of alignment. If you got the machine last fall, it should still be under warranty. You can call Brother and ask where you can take the machine for repair. Or, you can go to Brother's website and look for information that might be helpful.

Good luck,
Ginny

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.

I can't thread the Shark Euro0pro 384 unng the automatic threader


You need to check to see that there is a small hook going through the eye of the needle when you use the threader. A flashlight or bright light will help. So will a magnifying glass. If it isn't, then no amount of trying will help.
If it goes through the eye, you need to see that your thread hooks into it so that the thread can be pulled through.
