You may need to lower the presser foot for the needle to be in the correct position. Consult your manual.

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 won't work on brother pe-770


Always make sure the hand wheel is at the exact top. Have you replaced the need recently? If it's bent, then the threader will not work. If the needle is loose or not all the way to the top in the holder, it will also cause the threader to not work.

I can not align my needle threaded on my Singer XL5000


Make sure your needle is fully seated and correctly inserted into your needle bar. Then make sure your needle is at it's lowest point before trying to use the threader.

The threader to the needle wont catch the thread


It takes some getting used to, to get these to work properly. Practice. First make sure your needle is in correctly and fully. then make sure that when you engage the needle threader the tiny little hook goes through the eye of the needle. If it doesn't it won't work at all.

Then follow the instructions in the book. Make sure the thread is on the proper side of the tiny hook....

Good luck

Automatic threader doesn't work


The automatic needle threader is very tiny and easily bent or damaged; however, it is designed not to turn if needle is not at its most upper position to protect the threader. Turn the hand wheel until the needle is at the highest position. If the needle is not aligning with the threader hook, you will need to replace it. And you can replace the needle threader hook if it is bent. I hope this helps!Jimmy

Needle threader heads are actually easily replaced and should be replaced anyway every few years because they do wear-out. Get a magnifying glass and, having returned the needle to the top (use the foot controller, so that the machine stops it in the right place), pull the needle threader down until the head rotates towards the needle. Look with the magnifying glass to see if the small hooked part in the centre of the threader head (the light grey plastic part) goes through the eye of the needle - if not, you might be able to bend it VERY carefully so that it does - that should cure it. If the hook is a long way above or below the needle eye, dont try and bend it, the cam that rotates the threader has probably moved on the needle bar and will need adjustment by a service agent. If the hook is passing through the eye of the needle OK, but still not pulling the thread back through when you release it - i.e. the thread is just slipping-off, the hook has become rounded through normal wear and you'll have to replace the threader head. The threader head simply pulls off - you might need to carefully lever it off the round shaft. Replacing it is a matter of simply putting the new one on the shaft and pressing upwards firmly so that the grooves in the threader head go right up to the horizontal pin on the threader shaft.

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.

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!
