Question about Sewing Machines
Ic ant use it cause i cant get it threaded i follow the arrows and when i insert it and push down on it it wont catch or thread
If the needle hole is too small for the particular thread it won't thread. if the threader is missing the hole it will need to be adjusted up or down. you will need to look at your threader for a small screw that will allow it to be risen or lowered. also, if the hook on the end of the threader has been broken it will need to be released. this is usually done by pulling the old on off and simply pushing a new one on where the old one was. the other possibility is you are not pulling the thread across the area where the hook is in order for the hook to catch the thread. many of these things mentioned can be found in your users manual.

SOURCE: Broken needle threader?
Hi - welcome to FixYa. I have this machine, and unfortunately, the cassettes can break. If the threader worked when you first got your machine, I would suggest buying a new cassette (even if your threader is working). A second cassette is very handy because you can thread your next color in the extra cassette before the machine stops for the next color change - when the machine does stop, just put in the second cassette, and thread the other with the next color - speeds things up alot. And, if one of the cassettes does break, you aren't sitting in a puddle waiting for a new one.. You can find the thread cassettes for sale on a variety of sites - this is where I buy mine:
Some of the 270Ds came with a spool pin - look in your manual for a picture and for the instructions for installing and using the spool pin. You can use it for spool of thread that are too large for the cassette and I think you can leave it installed on your machine all the time. If you don't have your manual, leave a comment and I'll look mine and check the instructions.
Hope this helps. If you have a minute, a rating (good or bad) tells me if the information or solution I provide is helpful to anyone who visits FixYa.
If you would like me to write a tip on salvaging an embroidery project that has been pulled into a birdsnest, leave a quick comment and I'll add the tip. Thanks everybody, and good luck. Please feel free to comment if you need more help or have more questions.

Check your threading path again referring to your manual. Is the thread caught on the spool holder or in a nick on the thread reel? What is your tension dial set to, refer to your manual for the correct setting. Is it going through the tension discs correctly? turn the tension down to zero and check if you can pull it through then freely.
With the pressure foot down, pull the thread from just before the needle, it should be firm but you should be able to pull it through gently.
If that all fails, take it back to the dealer who sold it to you and ask them to thread and demo it again to you to establish if there is a fault with it.
