Automatic threader does not take the thread. I

Automatic threader does not take the thread all the way through, It takes it to the place where I can see a space between the tubes. I wonder if I am doing something wrong, such as using the wrong thread.

The tubes that the thread pass through may be dirty or misaligned. Another option is the pumping mechanism may be leaking causing a poor air flow. With your machine came a fine twisted wire to use as a threader. With the tube aligned and no thread in them pass the wire threader through the tubes to make sure they line up. If this works you can pull a larger thread such as serger yarn or woolly nylon to swab out the tubes.

To check if the pump is leaking you can switch the lever for the upper and lower looper between the two positions. This will block the valve. As you push the pump lever it should feel stiff. If it slowly looses pressure you may need a new piston in the pump.

You may need an expert if the upper and lower loopers do not align with the tubes.

Open the front cover and raise presser foot to release all threads. Depress the machine lock button firmly with your left index finger. At the same time manually rotate the machine hand wheel slowly forward until he button "snaps" into the locked position and the lock button release lever moves to the far left.

Auto Needle Threader Won't Come Down


If it's still in warranty, send it in for repair. If it's not still in warranty, pull out a length of top thread and clip off the end with sharp scissors at an angle. Poke the end of the thread through the needle eye -- it should go through easily. Two second solution.

Automatic needle threader won't work on brother pe-770


Always make sure the hand wheel is at the exact top. Have you replaced the need recently? If it's bent, then the threader will not work. If the needle is loose or not all the way to the top in the holder, it will also cause the threader to not work.

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,

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.

How do I use the automatic threader? The diagram in the instruction manual just shows the threader but doesn't show how to get the thread in.


When you have the threader engaged to the needle hold the thread between your two hands horizontally and slide the thread behind the needle starting from the bottom up until you feel it stop then pull the threader gently out toward the back of the machine. Sometimes it takes a few tries to get the hang of it

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!

Automatic needle threader on brother se-350


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.

Good luck,
Ginny

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.

Automatic Threader Never works


lever the auto threader slightly back and pull down- if it doesnt pull down adjust the needle up or down slightly. Once it is down behind the needle, place thread under far left of threader then pull across to far right and hook behind tiny hook. Sounds complicated but not so when you get the basic action. Release and guide back up and the thread should be thru the hole and looped up bahind it. Hope you get it.
