When you pull the needle threader down it seems like it is pulled all the way down but it isn't. Pull it a little harder and it will turn and go down all the way to match up with the needle eye. I was a little scared to apply the extra "force", thinking I could break my new machine. Just be easy with it and it will work just like the manual says.
Good luck....

SOURCE: Bobbit thread on my Singer Stylist 457 will not catch

Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.

If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.

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.

I have brand new singer quantum stylist 9960 can't get threaders to work. Tried all of the trouble shooting tips very frustrated may have to send it back!


It would probably be best to begin the process of returning it to the vendor. Waiting may limit the ability to reach a good resolution.

I just purchased a Singer 9960 and I cannot get the satin presser foot to lock in. I've gotten the other ones to work just fine, but that one will just not lock in.


Well, my first reaction is that the foot is defective. They are not very expensive; you can get one on eBay or Amazon. Your machine takes a low-shank foot. You might also decide to purchase one with a shank, instead of the snap-on that you have.

My machine model is just 9960, no quantum stylist or anything like that. I got it in 2010 and have the book but don't know if it is a quantum or not. Is It? Thank You


Would expect it to be a quantum...

Don't put to much stock in the fancy names they apply to items. A lot of the time, it just simply indicates nonessential things, like a color or something.
