The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.

How to thread singer electronic machine (model 2517) I put the cone thread on top of machine but can't secure it to continue on with threading the machine

are you using a large cone of thread such as would be used on an overlocker? If so, yes you will have problems on a domestic sewing machine. Either run some thread off to fill a bobbin and then use this on the top of the machine. Or buy thread in a thousand metre spool and use this, its better quality thread and certainly easier to place on the machine 's spool holder. If you really want to use the bulk cone, then you probably need to buy one of these to make it possible.tally_girl_72.jpg
I hope I've understood your problem. If you need threading diagrams for your Singer then go to their website and download your manual, most are there.

My Singer 14u44 serger machine is just cutting fabric and not sewing, I have checked the threading and tensions twice.

You still do not have it threaded right, if it is not forming a chain without anything being sewed, it is because either you are missing one of the guides or your upper looper is not threaded right. If, you do not have your manual, or it is still unclear, go to and look at their frequently asked questions and they show the threading pattern. I think that shows threading, too

I am looking for a diagram of how to thread a Consew 206RB. The manual is very unclear to me. I have tried going over the pin on the right side of the tension disks and not going over it. Which is...

Don't know this machine but I would guess to go over it if the thread then goes down to the needle so you get a straight line down to sewing needle.

I have threaded and re-threaded this machine. the threaded keeps breaking and it is driving me nuts! I have followed the threading instructions and adjusted the tensioner with no help

Do you have good quality thread? And upper and lower thread is of the same weight? Put in a new needle. Also check how you are threading the machine, put your presser foot up and pull on the top thread, it should feed smooth, then put the presser foot down, now the thread should barely move when you pull on it. You can download a copy of your machine manual for free at and enlarge the diagrams to see it better.

Needle will not pick up thread from bobbin on a Brother's machine

This is going to sound silly but its one of the first things I check for... make sure that the needle is in correctly make sure that the flat side is towards the back as you place it in the needle clamp. better yet take the needled out all together and put a new one in just to be sure that it isnt bend
