Hi ruth162, Make sure you've got your needle inserted correctly-flat side back and as far as it will go up in the needle bar. The needle needs to be in the up position( to insure this tap the foot control once the needle will lower and the presser foot will be in the pivot position- tap the foot control again and the needle will be in the correct upper position and the presser foot down) or just simply turn the machine off then back on again. Check out page 9 in your users manual for using the needle threader.
Now if you've been threading your machine fine with the threader and now you're having issues, it could be that the little hook that pulls the thread thru the needle has become bent. Lower the presser foot, bring your needle threader down and forward just enough behind the needle where you can take something flat like a metal nail file and gently put it in between the metal flanges where the hook is in the middle and gently try and straighten it out on each side of the hook. Be careful we don't want to break it.Then test it by bringing it forward to see if the hook goes thru the eye of the needle.
Now If you've been having issues all along with threading with the threader cause sometimes it takes practice, If you live near a dealer I'm sure they can help you with learning how to do that.
Home some of this helps some what. I don't know how long you've had your machine. If your new or you've had it a while. You weren't specific with what trouble you're having with your auto threader. You can also email me if you need more help and I'll try and answer your questions. As well as help others. Happy Sewing!! kats2sew@hotmail.com Kathy

The needle threader on an Elizabeth


My experience with auto threaders has been pretty mixed. When they work, they are wonderful...When they don't, fixing them can often be a struggle. Look in your manual. See if they have quick suggestions based on your machine make/model. Posting your model here might help too--others might have suggestions

Auto threader wont thread


Move the needle to the top.
Loosen the screw on the threader.
Use the threader as if you are using it. You will have to adjust it to the side and up or down. Move it so the threader is in the needle hole.
Tighten the needle.
If it still doesn't work you may need to replace the threader.

Automatic needle threader stuck


You may have a thread stuck in your bobbin area. Remove your bobbin, brush gently with a clean soft brush to remove dust and/or thread bits, then gently wiggle your hand wheel back and forth, and brush again. This should free up your machine.

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.

AUTO THREADER CAME OUT


When you activated the threader, the needle was down and the threader came off or broke.

If it is not broken, you may be able to push it back into place.

Turn off the power and tip the machine back on some towels so it does not slip and with a flash light check the area where it fits and see if you can get it back into position.

If not, will have to thread the needle the old fashion way.

Check with your Brother dealer to see if they can look at the machine while you wait.

They may be able to get it back together or they will have to replace the threader.

It is possible they will have one in stock, or they may have to order it.

Janome MC 10001 auto. needle threader stuck in up position.


You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.

Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.

Show me how to use the auto threader


Thread the machine to the point where the thread is in the needle bar thread guide. With you left hand hold the upper thread towards you. With your right hand pull down on the threader unit and twist it so the tiny hook goes through the eye of the needle and hold it there. Now take the thread that you are holding in your left hand and pass it to the rear of the machine under the small guides on the threader hook. Release the threader mechanism and the thread and the tiny hook should pull a small loop through the eye. Pull on this small loop (which will be on the right side) all the way through the eye.
Viola!

good luck!

I can't thread the Shark Euro0pro 384 unng the automatic threader


You need to check to see that there is a small hook going through the eye of the needle when you use the threader. A flashlight or bright light will help. So will a magnifying glass. If it isn't, then no amount of trying will help.
If it goes through the eye, you need to see that your thread hooks into it so that the thread can be pulled through.
