SOURCE: Threading & Use of Needle Threder

Threading as per image....make sure presser foot is up so top thread will properly engage in tension unit, make sure your thread is inserted in small guide on needle arm too. Your user guide should have a clear graphic of this process which is essentially the same for all machines.
2bc0705.jpg
As for the needle threader, once thru the last guide on the needle arm, raise needle to highest position, lower the needle threader so that the tiny hook engages the eye of the needle and place thread horizontally from L to R along the plastic arm so the tiny hook can grab thread, release threader and a small loop will form in needle, pull it clear and you are away !

If the tiny hook has been bent, a little judicious and gentle bending to re-align may be necessary, use a jewellers screwdriver or similar and please be very gentle

SOURCE: Broke the hook off the automatic needle threader

You can get a new (grey) threader inexpensively that pushes on the bottom of the threader shaft from a dealership. Easy to do it yourself or they can do it in 5 or 10 minutes. Try taking the old one off and looking at it. It pulls right off.

SOURCE: Singer Athena automatic needle threader does not work.

Check on the threader and see if the part that goes through the eye of the needle is bent. This is a very common problem. The threaders are becoming more and more difficult to replace. If the piece is bent, you can usually use a pair of tweezers to straighten it out.

SOURCE: 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.

HOW TO ADJUST my needle threader on my Pfaff Creative Visions 5.5 sewing machine


If the tiny hook on the needle threader misses the eye of the needle, it needs a careful adjustment to align it. I do mine by using a magnifying lamp to aid viewing the mechanism, then holding the needle threader down level with the eye, gently manipulate the hook until it is able to move into the eye., usually a tiny amount either side. If it needs adjustment vertically, then it needs the small screw carefully undoing a little, until the threader can be moved slightly up, or down.

The needle threader on my Janome 6260 quit working. The needle is inserted correctly.


Is the threader broken or just not meeting the needle eye? If broken, it can most likely be repaired.

If the threader is not meeting the needle eye, adjust the needle height so the threader meets the eye and intercept the thread. I have a 60's machine with a threader that needs the needle height manually adjusted because the needle does not stop in any particular place. Usually, if I raise the needle to its highest, the threader will work.

The needle threader is not lining up with the needle. how do I lower the needle threader?


You don't need to adjust the needle threader. You need to adjust the height of the needle so it meets the needle threader. Just hand rotate the hand wheel (always toward you, never backward!) until the needle is at the correct height for the threader.

Auto threader wont thread


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.

Automatic threader doesn't work


The automatic needle threader is very tiny and easily bent or damaged; however, it is designed not to turn if needle is not at its most upper position to protect the threader. Turn the hand wheel until the needle is at the highest position. If the needle is not aligning with the threader hook, you will need to replace it. And you can replace the needle threader hook if it is bent. I hope this helps!Jimmy

Needle threader heads are actually easily replaced and should be replaced anyway every few years because they do wear-out. Get a magnifying glass and, having returned the needle to the top (use the foot controller, so that the machine stops it in the right place), pull the needle threader down until the head rotates towards the needle. Look with the magnifying glass to see if the small hooked part in the centre of the threader head (the light grey plastic part) goes through the eye of the needle - if not, you might be able to bend it VERY carefully so that it does - that should cure it. If the hook is a long way above or below the needle eye, dont try and bend it, the cam that rotates the threader has probably moved on the needle bar and will need adjustment by a service agent. If the hook is passing through the eye of the needle OK, but still not pulling the thread back through when you release it - i.e. the thread is just slipping-off, the hook has become rounded through normal wear and you'll have to replace the threader head. The threader head simply pulls off - you might need to carefully lever it off the round shaft. Replacing it is a matter of simply putting the new one on the shaft and pressing upwards firmly so that the grooves in the threader head go right up to the horizontal pin on the threader shaft.

I am not sure how to replace my broken self threader hook, to put in a new hook for my 2040 model, Pfaff sewing machine?


If your talking about the needle threader, it just simply slides on to the stainless steel shaft and snaps on. You might have to adjust it a little if it doesn't line up with the eye of the needle. To do that you need to remove the side cover of the needle bar area, and loosen the 1.5MM allen screw that sets the stop for the threader stop. It is located near the top of the needle threader bar.

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!

Automatic Threader Never works


lever the auto threader slightly back and pull down- if it doesnt pull down adjust the needle up or down slightly. Once it is down behind the needle, place thread under far left of threader then pull across to far right and hook behind tiny hook. Sounds complicated but not so when you get the basic action. Release and guide back up and the thread should be thru the hole and looped up bahind it. Hope you get it.
