SOURCE: problem with automatic needle threader On Viking Designer 1 serie

Yes, I fix them all the time. You will need very good eye sight as the wire/metal hook is very small. If you get at an angle where you can see how the hook lines up between the metal flaps that hug the needle, the hook will probably be off center. You will need something very flat, but strong. I have use the exact-o-knife blade, in the handle of course, a knife, and a tiny screw driver. The hook has to line up vertically and horizontally. What usually happens is when we thread the needle it did not line up exactly, and putting pressure on the white tab, bends the hook. Bend it back and you are in business. If the threader does not line up horizontally, the needle threader may have slid down the shaft. This take a special tool. I purchased mine at Sears tools. There are 2 screws on the back of the threader. Move the needle to the highest position and after loosening the 2 screws, you can slide the threader up and down on the silver shaft, this is trickier, because the shaft moves up and down and rotates as it gets close to the needle. I use calipers/hemostats to hold the shaft while I line up the hook.
Hope this helps.

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.

Hi
I found a free manual and parts for my Toyota 9090 on this site. http://www.aisin.fr/index3.php?language=en
The only problem is that the manual is in French but some are also available in English. I found it useful for the diagrams etc.
Try the online guides as well as they give help on adjusting tension, replacing bobbins and needles etc.

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 automatic threader wont pick up and thread needle. Can do manually but thats not easy?


to make manual threading of a needle easy buy a needle threader
it is a instrument that has a very fine piece of wire in a loop that you push through the eye of the needle , put the thread in that loop and pull the loop back out of the eye and the needle is threaded
available from most any shop that sells material , cotton , thread or sewing machine shops
cost --pack of 2 for $1.00 or there abouts

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!

Can the automatic threader be fixed can i do it myself?


Depends what is wrong with your needle threader. Needle threaders tend to be very fragile parts so it is not uncommon for them to stop working. You may be able to replace the part if it is broken but it may be a job trying to find the part. Search the internet for parts for the make & model of your machine. Once you get the part, search the internet (YouTube) for videos showing how to replace the part.

On the other hand, it is not a serious problem if the auto-needle threader does not work. These options were not available until the most recent sewing machines were manufactured and your machine will most likely operate for many years despite the broken needle threader. Manual threading was all that was available for over 100 years.

HINT: To help make needle threading easier, lick your forefinger then swipe the back of the needle's eye. The moisture in the eye will help pull the thread through.

Top thread is shredding Automatic needle threader stopped working


If the top thread is shredding it is usually because the needle and thread are not compatible. If thread is too large for the eye and the thread groove, the action of sewing will cause the thread to shred as it pieces the fabric.

Try a different needle and thread. Here's an excellent web site:

My Fashion Mate 6160 beeped and stopped sewing & automatic threader doesnt work


if the machine still sews a straight stitch on top of fabric & also on bottom then it should be fine..
it's possible that the thick fabric, needle, & thread were not a compatable combination.
but also some sewing machine are not made to sew thick or heavy
fabric
but having the machine serviced would be a good idea & help to know why the needle thread is not working

Cant make the auto threader work on an elna 2007


Do you mean the auto needle threader?

Mine won't work on very small needle sizes so I resort to the old manual needle threader for these. Ditto for twin needles.

Otherwise its a case of pulling the auto threader down so the hook swings into the needle eye, then pulling the thread over the face of the needle and catching it into the hook, then release the threader so it pulls back through the needle eye, taking the thread with it.

The only other thing that springs to mind is "is the needle at the top position in its stich cycle so that the threader lines up with the needle eye?

hope these ideas help a little.

The needle threader has stopped working


Check you needle size. On my machine the needle threader does not work with the smaller needles, 9/65 and 11/75. The eye of the needle appears to be just short of the hook on the needle threader. I have no problems threading needles in larger sizes.
Good luck,
