Question about Brother Sewing Machines
I messed up the automatic needle threader and the hook is no longer going through the eye of the needle. I've tried bending the middle hook to the right, but the entire 'system' seems to need to go to the right more. I can't find where I would need to screw/unscrew anything to help move it...any suggestions?
You can get a new (grey) threader inexpensively that pushes on the bottom of the threader shaft from a dealership. Easy to do it yourself or they can do it in 5 or 10 minutes. Try taking the old one off and looking at it. It pulls right off.

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.

The small hook that passes through the eye of the needle is bent or broken. If it is only bent it can be straightened with a small screw driver. If it is broken it will need to be replaced. Most dealers can get this part for you for about $5.00

Use a magnifying glass to see if the little hook in the needle threader is bent so that it is not going through the eye of the needle. You might be able to gently bend it back with tweezers.
Make sure that your needle is in the upper most position when you try and the presser foot is down.

SOURCE: 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.
