The tiny hook which goes through the eye of the needle is bent, broken or misaligned. Use a magnifying glass to watch the hook as you try the threader. Sometimes it may pass to the side of the needle and will need to be moved by loosening a screw and adjusting the assembly from side to side. Some machines don't have a screw to move. In this case you need to use a small screw driver to flex the hook to the correct position. Or you can buy a new part from your dealer for about $5.

Tips for Threading your Needle

It's my experience that the automatic needle threaders on most machines work fine for a while, then the little hook that pulls the thread through the eye of the needle gets bent so it won't go in the eye anymore.
Here are a few tips that will help threading your needle the old-fashioned way easier:
1. Use a pair of tweezers. I have a large pair of tweezers that live on my sewing table. They are great for pulling out threads I've ripped out, for helping guide fabric under the pressure foot, and for threading the needle. I hold the thread in the tweezers maybe 1/2" or less from the end of thread, and it just slides on through.
2. Instead of,or in addition to, wetting the end of the thread, wet the eye of the needle. (I lick my index finger and wipe the eye with it.) For some reason, the moisture in the eye sort of pulls the thread in.
3. Make sure the thread ends with a sharp cut. Snip off the end if it's the least bit raveled or frayed.
4. Use plenty of light. The little lights on most sewing machines are really pretty pathetic, so don't depend on that for your only light source, especially when threading your needle. I have a clamp-on light, a floor lamp, and two table lamps on when I'm sewing--and that isn't enough, sometimes!
5. Get a pair of reading glasses. They magnify small things--like the eye of a sewing machine needle!
Hope these tips help!!! Happy Sewing to you all,

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew

after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

I have a Huskylock 936 Serger and used it last week, no problem. I changed the threads for a new product and one thread came out and had to rethread. I know you have to thread the upper looper first then...

Recommend you remove all the threads and rethread from the beginning. ALWAYS RAISE THE PRESSER FOOT when threading and thread the upper looper first, the lower looper second. Sergers sometimes are temperamental about threading. When in doubt, start over from the beginning.

How to thread euro pro serger. threads aren'y interlocking

If the thread guide in printed on the side of the door or on the machine, you will need to follow the threading sequence.

Turn off the power.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Open the tensions (set at zero). If the serger has automatic tensions, raise the presser foot as this also opens the tensions.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest position.

Begin threading from the right to the left - lower looper is usually the first to be threaded.

After threading, set the tensions back to the normal setting and stitch a chain of thread and it should be knitted/interlocking.

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!
