I believe the plastic cover (gray?) toward the end of the arm (left of the needle plate) is removable by prying (gently) on the front edge and sliding toward you. Unless the cutter is broken, you should be able to figure out how itall fits back together.
there is a guide on the plastic cover which is a good guide as to the direction, but before you put the cover back use the top thread to pull it through by putting the needle up and down and replace cover
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!
If so it threads just like my sewing machine.Draw your thread across the top,down into the first slot,then up and thru the second slot,come down,pass it thru the thread guide on the needle,then thread your needle.Most all machines are basic when it comes to threading.HTH Kathi
