WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)

When you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right side of the thread compartment. It has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving disc with a hole in it. Carefully remove the white disc from the track, insert the larger metal pin in the hole, with the 2 prongs facing the needle. Replace the white disc in the track and allow the spring to retract the unit. This should take care of the problem.

It may be the thread foot from where the thread comes down from the thread cartridge

I have a white rotary 75 and I'm looking to fmq on it is there a presser foot bar on a singer that I can change out in order to use a quilting foot?

If you know which presser foot shank your machine has, you can purchase a darning or FMQ foot that fit your machine without having to manipulate Singer parts.

Can I use modern presser feet with my Pfaff 130?

It all depends on your particular model machine.

Found on the internet, Low Shank vs High Shank:
"When presser foot is down, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar. Singer slant is for slant needle machine only. A high shank machine measures approximately 1 1/4" from the screw to the bottom of the foot."

Pfaff Presser Feet

You may be able to use snap-on feet if you can first buy the shank adapter for your machine. You can buy a whole kit of 10 or more different snap-on feet that you would be able to use with the adapter shank.

Buying brand-name accessories could get very expensive. Some believe the generics or snap-on are inferior, but that is a matter for the owner to determine after deciding how much the accessories will be used. Personally, the snap-on feet I've used serve their purpose. If I am using a foot very frequently, I will consider buying the brand-name because the quality is usually better.

You'll need to determine what shank your machine has and whether these feet will work on your machine. Frequently, you can find accessories on eBay.

Here's an example of an adapter for low shank:

Threader is not working. I press the needle threader lever down but it doesn't go all the way down and it won't spring

You may need to lower the presser foot for the needle to be in the correct position. Consult your manual.

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!! Kathy

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.

Thread puckers and has loops , the threader clicks when it goes up and down..I thionk I bent the top threader?

Threader that goes up and down? Is this the uptake lever? I don't know how this could happen unless the machine was dropped.

Lift the presser foot and re-thread the machine to see if the stitching improves.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

Needle threader is not working bernina 220 activa

Use a magnifying glass to see if the little hook in the needle threader is bent so that it is not going through the eye of the needle. You might be able to gently bend it back with tweezers.

Make sure that your needle is in the upper most position when you try and the presser foot is down.
