SOURCE: unable to thread lower looper on Babylock Eclipse BLE1SX

On rare occasions lint can clog the yubes on these sergers. One of the first things I do is thread the wire through in the opposite direction. It will sometimes push the blockage out. The other option is to use an air compressor and again blow the lint out from the opposite side. If this does not work take it to a service man.

SOURCE: Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.

You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.

SOURCE: show me how to use the auto threader

I was having the same problem with my new Juki.  I discovered today what I was doing wrong.  Notice on the diagram that the thread is in red?  and in the picture, it is a dotted line at one place?  That is where the thread goes behind the threader, and under.  Then bring the thread to the front of the threader where there is a guide for your thread at the bottom of the white piece.  If you put your thread behind the threader and then run it through the guide (a little **** in the white piece on the end) then you can let go of the threader and it pulls it right through!  Hope this helps!

How do you use a needle threader for a plus 1 viking sewing machine


If it's the viking needle threader that was made for this machine, you would mount the needle threader over the needle screw. The part that fits over the needle screw of the needle threader is an eccentric. You rotate it until the hook of the needle threader slips into the eye of the needle. Once that happens you mearly put the thread in front of the threader hook and pivot the needle threader back out of the needle.

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.

I am having trouble with the auto threader


Hi ruth162, Make sure you've got your needle inserted correctly-flat side back and as far as it will go up in the needle bar. The needle needs to be in the up position( to insure this tap the foot control once the needle will lower and the presser foot will be in the pivot position- tap the foot control again and the needle will be in the correct upper position and the presser foot down) or just simply turn the machine off then back on again. Check out page 9 in your users manual for using the needle threader.
Now if you've been threading your machine fine with the threader and now you're having issues, it could be that the little hook that pulls the thread thru the needle has become bent. Lower the presser foot, bring your needle threader down and forward just enough behind the needle where you can take something flat like a metal nail file and gently put it in between the metal flanges where the hook is in the middle and gently try and straighten it out on each side of the hook. Be careful we don't want to break it.Then test it by bringing it forward to see if the hook goes thru the eye of the needle.
Now If you've been having issues all along with threading with the threader cause sometimes it takes practice, If you live near a dealer I'm sure they can help you with learning how to do that.
Home some of this helps some what. I don't know how long you've had your machine. If your new or you've had it a while. You weren't specific with what trouble you're having with your auto threader. You can also email me if you need more help and I'll try and answer your questions. As well as help others. Happy Sewing!! kats2sew@hotmail.com Kathy

How do you thread a pfaff 7570


If only we could put video links in here! But here goes:

Raise the presser foot;
Turn the hand wheel until the take-up lever (the hook bit that goes up and down, above the needle ) has reached its highest position;
Remove the small spool holder from the horizontal thread holder that is under the lid. Put thread reel onto spool, replace spool holder;
Pull thread behind first thread guide - it is the cream flat plastic bit towards the back - about 1" x 3/4" (i.e. the thread takes the first exit at the back);
Bring it down the left-hand long slot on the front of the machine, back up the right-hand slot, over the hook of the take-up lever, back down the right-hand slot and pass it from the side between the thread guide (silver metal bit just above the needle - looks a bit like curled metal). I found this last guide the most difficult to figure out - tried to get the thread into the curled bit - but you don't do that - it just slips in behind;
Thread goes through the eye of the needle. You can use the needle threader or not. Instructions for needle threader:

Lower sewing foot (makes more room and clamps the thread in the upper tension discs so it is less likely to keep spooling off while you are trying to thread);
Turn handwheel until the needle is in highest position;
Pull the needle threader straight down and then twist it to the front so the tiny hook on the threader goes through the eye of the needle;
Take thread under the larger metal hook on the left, put your thumb on it to stop it coming off, thread goes back towards the needle and under the small hook that is poking through the needle from the back;
Twist the needle threader towards the rear, releasing the thread carefully and allow the threader to move upwards. There should be a loop of thread left in the eye of the needle and you can now pull it all through to the back.

That sounds really complicated but I find the Pfaff needle threader works really well, unlike that of some other machines. I also have a Husqvarna Designer 1 whose needle threader works great, but the one on my friend's Designer SE is useless. Go figure!

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!

Singer 2932 automatic threader


A new part is faster and easier but sometimes the problem is a bent hook( the tiny part which goes through the eye of the needle). Remove the needle to see the part better and pull the threader down. Look in the very center of the threader for the hook. It is probably pushed to the right.Using a small screwdriver or other thin piece of metal, force the hook back to the center. Try it and continue until it enters the eye again. By the way, a Singer dealer can get this part for you for under $10.
