Question about Brother Sewing Machines
I don't know why the auto threader won't work anymore.
Brother HE 240. Red light with Raise the Button hole lever. During NON button hole sewing the light would come on and stop the machine.
Solution: I took off the cover and found two wires (red and black) with intermittent solders touching. Place a small flat head screw driver between and carefully separate the solders.

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.

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.

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.
