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.

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.

Try pushing the reset button underneath the machine. Mine does that too. I had it repaired a few months ago...apparently it needs a circuit board that is no longer available.

Yes it's true, most parts are not available for this machine anymore. You might try to push the red reset button on the bottom of the machine. Also make sure that the reset button is not being depressed by anything that the machine is sitting on, and that the reset button pushes in and out freelyl.
