The needle should be in the up position or the threader won't come down, still when it does, you have to get the thread right across the hole in the needle for it to catch,

another problem is that you bent or broke the center pin that pulls the thread through the needle,

the tip that comes to the needle has three parts, the two outer ones that wrap around the needle and the center pin that goes through the hole in the needle,

If this is bent you may be able to bend it back if broke you need to get it replaced

take a good magnifier and take a look at the center pin!

Hope this helps

SOURCE: my izek singer sewing machine won't do

Hello there,
First thaing you should check is the tension pulley if it is poperly adjusted. Adjust it to the factory setting. Then check the needle if it is properly sitted. Then you look into the bobbin case and refix the bobbin.
Adjust your thread tension. It may be too tight or too loose.
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate). (Important: After changing your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide stitches.)
Hope this was helpful to you. All the best Elect_Comp

Needle threader won't work on my Singer 4423


Hi there,

The needle threader hook is very tiny and easily bent or damaged.
The needle threader is designed not to turn, if the needle is not at its most upper position to protect the threader - Turn hand wheel until needle reaches its highest position.
Needle not alining with threader hook - Replace needle.
Threader hook bent - Replace with new needle threader hook.

Hope this helps.

There's nothing wrong with the Threader, it's just that the Threader doesn't reach the back of the Needle!


Usually you have to manually move the needle up and down until its height matches the threader height. Newer machines have an automatic needle stop that generally matches the threader but most older machines need to be manually manipulated.

HINT: If you do need to manually thread your needle, lick your index finger and then rub the back of the needle's eye. Your thread will literally "leap" through the eye! This works for hand-sewing needles too!

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.

The needle threader on my Brother SE350 sewing machine fell off and I don't know how to put it back on


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

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.

Threader


try checking if the tiny hook is actually going through the eye of the needle. Mine wasn't and i bent it very gently with tweezers and now it works.
