Kenmore 19606 Auto Threader

On my 2 year old Kenmore 19606, the auto threader has gotten out of allianment, and I can no longer thread the needles. We have tried to align it again, but to no avail.
Is this part replaceable? I didn't see it in my manual.

    I must now add that on the Sears part site, I see different parts for the threader, but no pictures. So I am not sure which and how many parts I need.

    I got it fixed. Actually my hubby got to looking at it and found the little wire that goes through your needle had gotten bent. So he straightened it out. The part Sears told me to order-I did. Once it got here , I found it to be the wrong one! I wrote to them and asked about returning it. Well, they politely told me it couldn't be returned! Of course I sent a note back telling them it was not MY fault, they told me which part to order. Luckily they were nice enough to refund my money. They told me to just keep the part I ordered which was a thread guide that goes on the top.

I have this machine also. Make sure your needle has been placed the right way around w/flat of back needle to back entry port. Also raise the needle up to the highest point it will go, sometime the alighmnet is off and if this doesn't work then you may need a service call.This machine is made by Janome for Kenmore, so most Janome parts will fit yours too.

Can the automatic threader be fixed can i do it myself?


Depends what is wrong with your needle threader. Needle threaders tend to be very fragile parts so it is not uncommon for them to stop working. You may be able to replace the part if it is broken but it may be a job trying to find the part. Search the internet for parts for the make & model of your machine. Once you get the part, search the internet (YouTube) for videos showing how to replace the part.

On the other hand, it is not a serious problem if the auto-needle threader does not work. These options were not available until the most recent sewing machines were manufactured and your machine will most likely operate for many years despite the broken needle threader. Manual threading was all that was available for over 100 years.

HINT: To help make needle threading easier, lick your forefinger then swipe the back of the needle's eye. The moisture in the eye will help pull the thread through.

Auto threader wont thread


Move the needle to the top.
Loosen the screw on the threader.
Use the threader as if you are using it. You will have to adjust it to the side and up or down. Move it so the threader is in the needle hole.
Tighten the needle.
If it still doesn't work you may need to replace the threader.

Automatic needle threader stuck


You may have a thread stuck in your bobbin area. Remove your bobbin, brush gently with a clean soft brush to remove dust and/or thread bits, then gently wiggle your hand wheel back and forth, and brush again. This should free up your machine.

Cant make the auto threader work on an elna 2007


Do you mean the auto needle threader?

Mine won't work on very small needle sizes so I resort to the old manual needle threader for these. Ditto for twin needles.

Otherwise its a case of pulling the auto threader down so the hook swings into the needle eye, then pulling the thread over the face of the needle and catching it into the hook, then release the threader so it pulls back through the needle eye, taking the thread with it.

The only other thing that springs to mind is "is the needle at the top position in its stich cycle so that the threader lines up with the needle eye?

hope these ideas help a little.

AUTO THREADER CAME OUT


When you activated the threader, the needle was down and the threader came off or broke.

If it is not broken, you may be able to push it back into place.

Turn off the power and tip the machine back on some towels so it does not slip and with a flash light check the area where it fits and see if you can get it back into position.

If not, will have to thread the needle the old fashion way.

Check with your Brother dealer to see if they can look at the machine while you wait.

They may be able to get it back together or they will have to replace the threader.

It is possible they will have one in stock, or they may have to order it.

Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.


You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.

Show me how to use the auto threader


Thread the machine to the point where the thread is in the needle bar thread guide. With you left hand hold the upper thread towards you. With your right hand pull down on the threader unit and twist it so the tiny hook goes through the eye of the needle and hold it there. Now take the thread that you are holding in your left hand and pass it to the rear of the machine under the small guides on the threader hook. Release the threader mechanism and the thread and the tiny hook should pull a small loop through the eye. Pull on this small loop (which will be on the right side) all the way through the eye.
Viola!

good luck!

The needle threader has stopped working


Check you needle size. On my machine the needle threader does not work with the smaller needles, 9/65 and 11/75. The eye of the needle appears to be just short of the hook on the needle threader. I have no problems threading needles in larger sizes.
Good luck,

Auto threader


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.

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.
