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.

The automatic threader wont pick up and thread needle. Can do manually but thats not easy?


to make manual threading of a needle easy buy a needle threader
it is a instrument that has a very fine piece of wire in a loop that you push through the eye of the needle , put the thread in that loop and pull the loop back out of the eye and the needle is threaded
available from most any shop that sells material , cotton , thread or sewing machine shops
cost --pack of 2 for $1.00 or there abouts

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.

Difficult to use auto needle threading


you thread the machine the normal way, using every thread guide, and if the automatic theader works it will thread the needle,
if the auto threader doesn't work, then it needs to be checked.
also make sure the needle is turned the correct way and inserted correctly into the needle holder.

Auto threader wont come all the way down...makes a poping noise


Personally, I wouldn't bother to fix it. Take a sharp pair of scissors and trim the end of the top thread at an angle and poke it through the eye of the needle. Autothreaders are usually the first thing to break.

Dont no how to work the autmatic theader


You haven't said what make and model but on my Janome 6500 the auto needle threader is a little plastic piece that you pull down on the left of the needle bar. You pull it downwards and it swings over and a little hook comes through the eye of the needle. Now pull your top thread down in front of it and then to the right against the bottom of it. This brings the thread across the front of the needle and the little hook. Let the threading device go and it should pull back out of the needle and upwards again, taking the thread with it and through the eye of the needle. Now, just disenage the thread from the little hook and you should be ready to go.

Most needle threaders are some variation on this, a little wire or hook that comes through the eye from the back to front, so you can introduce the thread into it, then pull it back through the needle eye.

Of course you can always remove the needle from the needle holder, and thread it with a little manual needle threader in the same direction, insert it from the back, put the thread into the wire loop, then pull it back through the needle eye. Then put the needle back into the needle holder flat shank to the back, if your machine doesn't have this feature. Most multi packs of hand sewing needles will come with a little metal needle threader which often just sits there unused.

I hope this assists you with 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.

I need a replacement Auto needle threader. There seems to be no where that I can find the pat numbers for anything on the machine....Euro-Pro 9106 Deluxe Denim & Silk sewing machine.


I've never had an auto needle threader work properly for very long. My suggestion is to not bother to replace it and just relearn how to thread the needle. Sorry.

How do I theard the needle on the 5050C singer machine?


does the machine have a needle threader? first if so, pull it down and put the thread behind the left side of the threader and loop the thread around toward the needle then go behind the finger of the threader hold the thread back against the needle and slightly pull upwards pull the threader forward and gently let go with the right hand of the thread and the needle will pull the thread through, second if the machine doesn't have a threader, the easiest way to thread a needle is to buy a needle threader, it is a device that you put through the eye of the needle and put the thread through its hole then just pull the threader back out and the needle is threaded.

Brother CS-80 will not always thread the needle when I depress the thread cannister.


I get this problem too. I found that it might be because I've moved the wheel while sewing previously and the needle doesn't go back to where it's supposed to be to be auto threaded correctly. To solve it, I just push the canister down until the threading parts are lowered. Once I see where the threader is positioned, I use the wheel to adjust the needle height to where the threader is, then I push the canister down all the way, and the needle is threaded. Hope it works for you!
