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: Upper thread will not catch bobbin thread

Your machine is out of time. It would be best to have a tech adjust the timing.

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.

I bought a mauzer 335 it was running great until it crashed and now it frays the thread no matter what i do including re timing tensions could it be the hook even tho its a new machine thanks.I have r


1) Check both the top and bottom tensions for loose fine threads. Thread build up will cause the thread to break. 2) Check the faceplate for sharp edges. Sand with fine paper to smooth out the edges.

Trying to thread and thread keeps breaking when i try to use i, i am following the guide but cant figure out what i am doing wrong


Hi. Make sure you're not using old thread. Old thread, or thread that has been exposed to sunlight, gets weaker and is more likely to break. When I realized old thread was causing problems, it about broke my heart to throw it all out (I had spools of thread that my momma used.....wooden spools...but out it all went.)
Another thing that could cause your thread to break is if the top tension is too tight. You might try loosening it a bit and see if that helps.
Let me know if this helps, ok?
Happy Sewing!

Threading cassette


Make sure that the thread is threaded through the cassette properly next make sure that the needle is at its highest point. When threading the needle push down gently so its in slow motion and if everything is done correctly you will see the thread go into the needle. Its the alignment of the needle that is important. I had that problem once and it was because the needle was not sitting up at the highest point. I hope this helps. let me know if it doesn't

Brother SE 270D Cassette threader


I too have a christmas gift causing headaches - loopy embroidery. But at least this one I found a work around for... I thread the cassette according to the arrows but when I get to "6" I loop up around the left side and over the top of the bend but DON'T go far enough to cut the thread. I leave about 4 or 5 inches loose and hold the end at the top-right of the thread cassette at about the 2 o'clock position. I push the cassette down into the machine normally and right about when the 6 is below the window the thread will cut leaving you holding the left over piece. Continue pushing down until click and needle will thread. Have not had any threading problems since learning to leave a tail on the thread. Hope this helps.
