It is probably out of alignment, just turn your needle threader so that the little wire goes through the eye of the needle and will catch thread. Also, sometimes the needle you put in has too small of a hole to thread easily with the automatic needle threader.

Auto Needle Threader Won't Come Down


If it's still in warranty, send it in for repair. If it's not still in warranty, pull out a length of top thread and clip off the end with sharp scissors at an angle. Poke the end of the thread through the needle eye -- it should go through easily. Two second solution.

I own a singer simple sewing machine


By threading part, do you mean the automatic threader? I've never had much luck with them. Yes, you can thread the needle manually.

Happy Sewing!

Self threader won't work


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

Singer Inspiration 4228 Automatic Threading Problems


The small hook that passes through the eye of the needle is bent or broken. If it is only bent it can be straightened with a small screw driver. If it is broken it will need to be replaced. Most dealers can get this part for you for about $5.00

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.
