1. check if the needle is the correct needle size
2. check to see if bobbin is correctly positioned in the bobbin support.
3. refer to the manual for trouble shooting steps.
4. check to see if the needle is threaded properly.

My BM 2600 needle threader seems not working, I can't make the thread go in the needle. Can you help me. Thanks.


If your needle is too small, the threader cannot fit through the eye. It's usually recommended to use a needle threader on a 90 or larger needle.
The threader may also have been damaged. (Needle threaders are delicate and easily broken or bent.)

Be sure the needle is always at its highest point Sometimes, I have to move the needle to make sure it syncs with the needle threader.

For manual threading, it helps to lick your index finger and then swipe it across the back of the needle eye. Aim the end of the thread slightly above the needle eye and then slide it down toward the eye. Frequently, it will slip right through.

How to install a needle threader on pfaff 2034 expression sewing machine


It would probably be quicker and easier to continue using the cheap and very efficient hand held needle threader most of the rest of the world uses when it can no longer see very well. To be honest I have been around them all my life and have never seen a sewing machine with a needle threader, I didn't know there was such a thing...

15000 Needle treader is a joke,does not work.I have had nothing but headaches with it from day one. I have had the machine for three years. Love everything else about the 15000!


Some needle threaders are not designed very well. Since I've had a machine without a threader for so many years, it does not irritate me so much to manually thread--although the threader is nice when there is one that works! To help with threading the needle, it helps if I lick my finger and swipe it across the back of the needle eye. The moisture attracts the thread into the eye, making it easier to thread. (Works on hand sewing needles too!) Another thing is to place the tip of thread above the needle eye where there is a groove in the needle, then push the thread down the groove and it should go right into the eye.

The automatic threader wont pick up and thread needle. Can do manually but thats not easy?


to make manual threading of a needle easy buy a needle threader
it is a instrument that has a very fine piece of wire in a loop that you push through the eye of the needle , put the thread in that loop and pull the loop back out of the eye and the needle is threaded
available from most any shop that sells material , cotton , thread or sewing machine shops
cost --pack of 2 for $1.00 or there abouts

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.

How do you thread a pfaff 7570


If only we could put video links in here! But here goes:

Raise the presser foot;
Turn the hand wheel until the take-up lever (the hook bit that goes up and down, above the needle ) has reached its highest position;
Remove the small spool holder from the horizontal thread holder that is under the lid. Put thread reel onto spool, replace spool holder;
Pull thread behind first thread guide - it is the cream flat plastic bit towards the back - about 1" x 3/4" (i.e. the thread takes the first exit at the back);
Bring it down the left-hand long slot on the front of the machine, back up the right-hand slot, over the hook of the take-up lever, back down the right-hand slot and pass it from the side between the thread guide (silver metal bit just above the needle - looks a bit like curled metal). I found this last guide the most difficult to figure out - tried to get the thread into the curled bit - but you don't do that - it just slips in behind;
Thread goes through the eye of the needle. You can use the needle threader or not. Instructions for needle threader:

Lower sewing foot (makes more room and clamps the thread in the upper tension discs so it is less likely to keep spooling off while you are trying to thread);
Turn handwheel until the needle is in highest position;
Pull the needle threader straight down and then twist it to the front so the tiny hook on the threader goes through the eye of the needle;
Take thread under the larger metal hook on the left, put your thumb on it to stop it coming off, thread goes back towards the needle and under the small hook that is poking through the needle from the back;
Twist the needle threader towards the rear, releasing the thread carefully and allow the threader to move upwards. There should be a loop of thread left in the eye of the needle and you can now pull it all through to the back.

That sounds really complicated but I find the Pfaff needle threader works really well, unlike that of some other machines. I also have a Husqvarna Designer 1 whose needle threader works great, but the one on my friend's Designer SE is useless. Go figure!

How do I theard the needle on the 5050C singer machine?


does the machine have a needle threader? first if so, pull it down and put the thread behind the left side of the threader and loop the thread around toward the needle then go behind the finger of the threader hold the thread back against the needle and slightly pull upwards pull the threader forward and gently let go with the right hand of the thread and the needle will pull the thread through, second if the machine doesn't have a threader, the easiest way to thread a needle is to buy a needle threader, it is a device that you put through the eye of the needle and put the thread through its hole then just pull the threader back out and the needle is threaded.

Automatic Needle Threader Doesn't Work All The Time


Needle threaders are generally finicky things. Check to make sure the needle eye is at the correct height for the threader to connect. Gently pull down the threader and wiggle the handwheel slightly to get the needle eye where it needs to be. The threader may have been been bent or slightly rotated so it doesn't connect properly. Also, if you are not aware, a needle threader will usually not work on needles smaller than 80/12 because the eyes are too small.

Admittedly, a needle threader is a very nice function to have. If you find it will not work, there are some things you can do to make manual threading easier. One hint I found that works well is to lick your finger. Swipe it across the back of the needle eye. Then begin with the thread end immediately above the needle eye and gently slide it down to the eye. The needle usually has a tiny groove above the eye that helps guide the thread. The thread tends to jump right through.
