Have a Brothers pe770. Having trouble with thread contently breaking but just kept rethreading. Tonight the little long brush on take-up lever feel off. Can I still use machine? How do I fix this?

If the tread keeps breaking could be it's old thread, need new needle or needle and thread not the right combo for material. Or yiur tension is too tight.
not sure about the brush falling off. Up to you to try sewing.

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

Top thread is shredding Automatic needle threader stopped working

If the top thread is shredding it is usually because the needle and thread are not compatible. If thread is too large for the eye and the thread groove, the action of sewing will cause the thread to shred as it pieces the fabric.

Try a different needle and thread. Here's an excellent web site:

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.

All of a sudden, the needle threader won't work. First I noticed the upper thread broke, and then I tried over and over to re-thread the needle. After a while I gave up. I finally replaced the needle and...

I don't know much about Brothers but the first thing I do with any new machine I get it to get rid of the needle threader if it is in my way. They never work and with use they start to shread the tread.
I use a bright light and a strong pair of glasses to hand thread it. I use tweasers on my more difficult machines.
You may have a lemon of a needle threader too. It happens. There are sharp barbs that we can not see but the thread has a hard time catching on them and most of the problem seems to be in the threader letting loose of the thread as it is caught on these barbs.

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,

Automatic Needle Threader Doesn't Work All The Time

Needle threaders are generally finicky things. Check to make sure the needle eye is at the correct height for the threader to connect. Gently pull down the threader and wiggle the handwheel slightly to get the needle eye where it needs to be. The threader may have been been bent or slightly rotated so it doesn't connect properly. Also, if you are not aware, a needle threader will usually not work on needles smaller than 80/12 because the eyes are too small.

Admittedly, a needle threader is a very nice function to have. If you find it will not work, there are some things you can do to make manual threading easier. One hint I found that works well is to lick your finger. Swipe it across the back of the needle eye. Then begin with the thread end immediately above the needle eye and gently slide it down to the eye. The needle usually has a tiny groove above the eye that helps guide the thread. The thread tends to jump right through.

Automatic threading

Although I do not know this model, the philosophy of these types of threader is to place the thread horizontally to the needle across the needle hole while a tiny hook comes towards you thru the hole and pulls a loop of thread with it, you grab the loop and pull it free.

(Some older Janomes have a device that pushes from front to rear)

The tiny hook can and does get bent, so get a magnifier and just check it is functioning....if it is missing the needle eye, a small implement, like jewellers screwdriver etc may be used to gently straighten and re-align....they are quite sturdy, but be gentle.

Once you have a look at the device under magnification you will also much better understand how it works, and know where the thread needs to be for it all to come together !
