You may need a magnifying glass to see the tiny hook that should pass through the needle eye to catch the thread....
....if it is not aligned properly and does not go through the eye you will need to realign it....
...there may be a small screw attaching the mechanism, loosen slightly with jewelers screwdriver so you can move it but there is still some friction and gently engage the needle threader to see how far you need to move it, then gently, using a fine screwdriver, tweesers etc, nudge the tiny hook a little, check result and continue to adjust until remedied....re-tighten screw.
If there is no screw adjustment, a gentle bending will resolve the problem............but if there is no tiny hook, it will need replacing.
They are not easily broken, but only use gentle pressure to be sure.

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.

It should just slide right back on, just line it up so that the threader tip goes through the needle eye. At least. that was how I did my Singer and I would think that they all work the same way
