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.
Threading & Use of Needle Threder - 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

How to thread a brother xl 2230


Do you need the directions for threading the upper thread or the bobbin? For the top thread, place the spool on the pin (pull it up if needed). Then raise the presser foot with the lever and the needle (with the balance wheel on the side) to their highest point. Now work from the right to the left. Hook the thread on the rear thread guide and bring the thread forward and down to the front thread guide. Bring the thread up and pass it through the Take-Up lever. Bring the thread up and back down so that it falls into the slot. Bring the thread down and pull it behind the guide above the needle. Then thread the needle from front to back. If you have put in the filled bobbin, hold onto the thread and use the balance wheel to bring the needle down and back up. Use the upper thread to pull up the bobbin thread and pull several inches of the thread to the back of the machine.

Brother has the manuals and quick set-up guide on the product support page: http://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=XL2230#.VRHrpaSFr3g . The quick setup guide, http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US%5CHAD%5CConsumer%5CQuickSetupGuide%5CQSG_XL_2230_EN_3166.pdf , has very good pictures of threading the machine.

I hope this helps.

How do I thread my white 765 top and bottom


The bobbin is held in a removable bobbin case. If the bobbin case is already out of the machine, place the bobbin in the bobbin case such that the thread will come off clockwise. Leave a couple of inches of thread loose. Then pull the end of the thread down into the cross slot and thread it through the tension spring and into the delivery eye.

Next make sure the presser foot is up and the needle is in the highest position. Push the slide plate up. Hold the latch in the center of the bobbin case and place it over the center stud with the finger opposite the notch in the shuttle race. Release the latch in the center and press down on the bobbin case until you hear a click when the latch catches the groove. Leave a 2-3" length of thread extending out of the bobbin case and push the slide plate down. (Reverse the steps to remove the bobbin case.)

To thread the needle, place a spool on the spool pin with the needle bar fully up. I try to place the spool on the pin so that the little catch is out of the way. (The catch holds the end of the thread when the spool isn't in use.) Bring the thread through the guide loop on the top of the machine and then down through the thread guide on the right side of the tension discs. Bring the thread back up on the left side of the tension discs through the check spring and through the thread guide. Bring the thread through the hole (eye) in the take up lever (from right to left). Then bring the thread down through all of the guides down the face of the machine to the needle. Finally thread the needle from left to right. Pull a few inches of thread through the needle. (I find the threading of the needle to be easiest if the thread has been cut at an angle after threading the machine.)

The manual for the White 765 is available from Singer's support site. The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/827_white-765-x.pdf . See page 6 of the manual and the subsequent pages for pictures.

I hope this helps.

Keeps stripping cotton until it breaks


Probably a problem with either your top tension being way too tight (high) - turn it down. CHeck this first and if you have never cleaned out the tension device, then check your manual and clean it now. It is usally a matter of turning the tension right down to zero, raising the pressure foot, and "flossing" between the tension discs with a clean piece of waste fabric. But each machine is different so check the manual to see if this area can be accessed and cleaned.

Or the thread is caught/catching on something in the threading path.

Recheck your threading fully from spool to needle and look to see if the thread has wrapped twice around anything like the take up lever or a thread eyelet.

Some thread spools have a little notch to hold the thread tail when putting away and if the thread has caught in this, this will certainly stop it from running freely and make it break so always check this first and put the spool up the other way or use a mushroom cap over it to help the thread run freely off the spool.

Is the needle bent or burred as this could also cause stripping of the thread.

I have a hard time threading this machine and a hard time getting the bobbin thread to come up.


Hello

Place spool of thread on the spool pin, found inside the carrying handle on the top right side of the machine facing the back.


Lead thread through the upper thread guide, located just beyond the machine's handle.


Lead thread through the second upper thread guide, found a few spaces to the left of the first upper thread guide mentioned in Step 2.


Bring thread around the second upper thread guide down into the thread guide.


Lead thread toward you down through the tension discs.


Continue to pull thread down through the ****. Forming a "U" shape, bring thread back up the left side of the guide, catching the check spring as the thread moves back up through the guide on the left side.


Bring thread up to the take-up lever and insert thread through the eye of the lever in a right-to-left motion.


Lead thread downwards, slipping it down through the horizontal thread guide.


Guide thread through the wire thread guide that is attached to the needle clamp.


Insert thread through needle from front to back, pulling thread four to six inches to create a thread extension. The machine is now threaded.

Don't know how to thread Pixie by Singer sewing machine. I tried following the instructions but this has not gotten me very far seeing as I am not familiar with any of the terms used in the manual.


try this site, I copied the instructions, but could not get the picture. when you get to te site i put dpxie in and search, on page 11 is the picture of the threading,

from the thread spool bring thread to the left, under the plate and up through the ****, around the round flat disk, then down the front of the machine (looks like a split in the machine) thread goes in this and around the u-turn (picture of a line that looks like a u-turn) an back up the opening opposite the first one. bring thread through hole in the metal loop, bring thread back down to needle area. there may be one or two places to loop thread behind hooks to keep the thread straight then through the needle from the front to the back.
(in the needle area DO NOT WRAP the thread around the hooks, the thread should just rest behind them to keep the thread straight to the needle)


http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html



1. Set the Power Off/Speed Switch to the OFF position.
2. Raise the presser foot lifter.
3. Turn the handwheel counter-clockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
4. Set the thread spool on the spool pin.
5. Bring the thread under the thread guide slot at the top of the machine and then slip it into the tension disk (1). Pass the thread into the tension disk, making sure it slips into the disk securely.
6. Bring the thread down, go around the U-turn (2), then bring it back up.
7. Pass the thread through the eye of the take-up lever, from right to left (3).
8. Bring the thread back down and thread the guide which is just above and to the right of the needle(4).
9. Thread the needle from front to back (5).

Bobbin in catching.


This really sounds like it is a simple top threading problem. Please check your threading path at the take-up lever #3 of the 4 steps. If the thread comes out of the take-up lever or it was missed during threading, the machine does not receive any top tension. No top tension means that the machine is being flooded with thread and wrapping around the shuttle hook.... jamming up.
If your machine is currently threaded, leave it threaded follow the thread from the spool through the first thread guide at #1 straight down to #2 and up to #3 (make sure that the thread is through the take-up lever (silver hook) at #3 from three you will bring the thread straight down to the thread guide that is to the left of the needle. Thread the needle from front to back.

Threading a pfaff creative 7570


Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.

How do you thread the machine, top and bottom, please.


From the Simplicity Sew Precious Model SWSP2 manual:

Inserting a new bobbin:
  1. Place wound bobbin into the bobbin case.
  2. Pull about 6 inches of thread out from the bobbin.
NOTE: Be sure that the bobbin rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE when thread is pulled.
  1. Pass the thread from the bobbin, under the bobbin case spring, and toward the back of the machine.
  2. Slide bobbin cover back into position.

Upper threading:
  1. Turn the handwheel toward you to raise the take-up lever to its highest position.
  2. Lower the presser foot.
  3. Place a spool of thread and spool cap on the spool pin.
  4. Place the thread into the first thread guide at the top of the machine.
  5. Bring the thread down the right slot of the threading path, then around the tension dial. Push the thread tension release lever and pull the thread up so the thread is secure in the thread tension dial.
  6. Bring the thread up the left slot of the threading path and through the take-up lever from right to left.
  7. Bring the thread back down the left slot of the threading path and into the needle eye from front to back. (Clip the thread end with sharp scissors fro easier needle threading.)

Raising the bobbin thread
  1. Make sure the presser foot lever is raised.
  2. Hold the end of the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the hand wheel toward you with your right hand until the needle goes down once and comes back up, stopping when the needle is at its highest position.
  3. Gently pull up on the needle thread. The bobbin thread, looped around the needle thread, will be drawn up through the needle hole.
  4. Push the thread tension release lever and pull about six inches of both the upper and lower threads toward the back of the machine, placing them under the presser foot.

Threading machine


The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
