    I have used a magnifying glass and a stylus to move the hook back into position. It worked for about 3 years, but now the hook has broken off.

    Can you give me more details about the special tool you got at Sears? This is what I need, but don't what it is called or how to find it. Thanks.

    beckmeyers: Can you tell me more about the special tool you got at Sears for the screws? This is exactly what I need. What is it called, or what do I tell a salesclerk what I am looking or? Is it Craftsman brand or another? Thanks.

Yes, I fix them all the time. You will need very good eye sight as the wire/metal hook is very small. If you get at an angle where you can see how the hook lines up between the metal flaps that hug the needle, the hook will probably be off center. You will need something very flat, but strong. I have use the exact-o-knife blade, in the handle of course, a knife, and a tiny screw driver. The hook has to line up vertically and horizontally. What usually happens is when we thread the needle it did not line up exactly, and putting pressure on the white tab, bends the hook. Bend it back and you are in business. If the threader does not line up horizontally, the needle threader may have slid down the shaft. This take a special tool. I purchased mine at Sears tools. There are 2 screws on the back of the threader. Move the needle to the highest position and after loosening the 2 screws, you can slide the threader up and down on the silver shaft, this is trickier, because the shaft moves up and down and rotates as it gets close to the needle. I use calipers/hemostats to hold the shaft while I line up the hook.
Hope this helps.

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

How do you use a needle threader for a plus 1 viking sewing machine


If it's the viking needle threader that was made for this machine, you would mount the needle threader over the needle screw. The part that fits over the needle screw of the needle threader is an eccentric. You rotate it until the hook of the needle threader slips into the eye of the needle. Once that happens you mearly put the thread in front of the threader hook and pivot the needle threader back out of the needle.

I have a really hard time getting the needle to thread.l I cannot manually pass the thread through the needle eye: the eye is just too tiny; and I cannot even see the hook part of the automatic threader...


I have that machine, and am wondering if your needle has a burr on it, try a new needle, #11 or #80. You may also have no hook in your automatic threader to go throught needle eye. My first automatic threader was defective, no wire to go through the needle to catch the thread. Take a magnifying glass and look when you change your needle and watch when you pull your threader down, do you see a really fine wire come through the needle eye? If, not yours is defective because it has to pull the thread into a little loop for you to pull your thread through it after you release the lever quickly, Mine was a Singer and they sent me a new one right away, Brother will do the same for you, I am sure. Another thing you can do is go to your dealer and have them inspect it, I went to JoAnn fabrics and that is how I learned that I was not crazy, it was the machine,

I have a 5150 model and i am making cushion covers, but my machine is not sewing it does goes though the materal but showes no stitches.what can i do?


try using a larger needle if your needle isn't large enough for the material you are using the needle may go thru but the thread wont go thru far enough to catch. The needle may be the correct size but just not sharp enough, the thicker the fabric the faster your needle will dull and a dull neele never works correctly

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.

I havea 6000 emb machine. it breaks thread bad.just knots the end of the thread


check to see if the thread is catching on anything like
spool pin
notch on spool itself
sometimes thread comes off the thread take up lever-on some machine
check thread tension
check neelde to see if it's bent-roll on flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
if when sewing the is a popping sound when the needle goes thru the fabric the needle is blunt
check for lint & thread in bobbin case area
