    I don't understand how to use the electronic threader on my brother computerized sewing machine. It makes me really mad. Maybe I don't see what I'm supposed to hook the thread around, but it just slips off. When I push all the way down on the automatic threader lever.

You may need a magnifying glass to see the tiny hook that should pass through the needle eye to catch the thread....

....if it is not aligned properly and does not go through the eye you will need to realign it....

...there may be a small screw attaching the mechanism, loosen slightly with jewelers screwdriver so you can move it but there is still some friction and gently engage the needle threader to see how far you need to move it, then gently, using a fine screwdriver, tweesers etc, nudge the tiny hook a little, check result and continue to adjust until remedied....re-tighten screw.

If there is no screw adjustment, a gentle bending will resolve the problem............but if there is no tiny hook, it will need replacing.

They are not easily broken, but only use gentle pressure to be sure.

Upper thread keeps breaking on my Brother HE-1 embroidery machine, tried adjusting the tension and nothing seems to work


could be a dull or bent needle. Could also be a burr on your hook. Try changing the needle first. If it's a burr on the hook or the needle plate, you have to take it to a tech for maintenance

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)

I need a replacement needle to embroidery. need to know the model#. I have a Brother SE-270D Easy Thread Cassette System.


The thread cassette has no bearing on what needle you use. You need a Schmetz embroidery needle with the red band size 75 for light to medium weight fabrics or a size 90 for heavier fabrics such as denim.

Make sure that your needle is put in the correct way, there is a groove in the front of the needle, check with your finger nail, this is usually to be facing you, and make sure the thread is going through the tension holder correctly do not have the foot down when you are threading the machine,as this stops the thread from going through the needle tension holder.

Brother PE-150V bobbin thread


For embroidery, and zig-zag, and because the needle makes side movements, it needs more needle thread.
So try to keep you needle thread not very tight,
and tight up your bobbin case tension more, so that the two threads meet under the meterial.
