SOURCE: Broken needle threader?

Hi - welcome to FixYa. I have this machine, and unfortunately, the cassettes can break. If the threader worked when you first got your machine, I would suggest buying a new cassette (even if your threader is working). A second cassette is very handy because you can thread your next color in the extra cassette before the machine stops for the next color change - when the machine does stop, just put in the second cassette, and thread the other with the next color - speeds things up alot. And, if one of the cassettes does break, you aren't sitting in a puddle waiting for a new one.. You can find the thread cassettes for sale on a variety of sites - this is where I buy mine:

http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_dept_items.asp?Store_id=492&page_id=17

Some of the 270Ds came with a spool pin - look in your manual for a picture and for the instructions for installing and using the spool pin. You can use it for spool of thread that are too large for the cassette and I think you can leave it installed on your machine all the time. If you don't have your manual, leave a comment and I'll look mine and check the instructions.

Hope this helps. If you have a minute, a rating (good or bad) tells me if the information or solution I provide is helpful to anyone who visits FixYa.

If you would like me to write a tip on salvaging an embroidery project that has been pulled into a birdsnest, leave a quick comment and I'll add the tip. Thanks everybody, and good luck. Please feel free to comment if you need more help or have more questions.

Hi Kay,
I found the manual, in case you don't have one, HERE. On page 30, it has an illustration showing two buttons, and the presser foot lever. If you press the button once or twice, it will raise the needle.
> Press (Needle position button) once or twice to raise the needle.
> The needle is correctly raised when the mark on the handwheel is at the top, as shown below. Check the handwheel and, if this mark is not at this position, press (Needle position button) until it is.
Get the manual if you don't have one, that will give you so much more than any here can do, but I think that should solve you trouble, Please rate and comment, Thank You,
Joe

All of a sudden, the needle threader won't work. First I noticed the upper thread broke, and then I tried over and over to re-thread the needle. After a while I gave up. I finally replaced the needle and...


I don't know much about Brothers but the first thing I do with any new machine I get it to get rid of the needle threader if it is in my way. They never work and with use they start to shread the tread.
I use a bright light and a strong pair of glasses to hand thread it. I use tweasers on my more difficult machines.
You may have a lemon of a needle threader too. It happens. There are sharp barbs that we can not see but the thread has a hard time catching on them and most of the problem seems to be in the threader letting loose of the thread as it is caught on these barbs.

The automatic threader is not working. I believe a spring or other small part in the threader broke. I have tried to thread the machine manually but haven't been succesful. Is the threader replaceable?


I have the same problem with mine. The needle hole is so small it makes it imposable to thread. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but Iv'e tried everything. I think the solution would be to just trash it.

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.

Brother CS-80 will not always thread the needle when I depress the thread cannister.


I get this problem too. I found that it might be because I've moved the wheel while sewing previously and the needle doesn't go back to where it's supposed to be to be auto threaded correctly. To solve it, I just push the canister down until the threading parts are lowered. Once I see where the threader is positioned, I use the wheel to adjust the needle height to where the threader is, then I push the canister down all the way, and the needle is threaded. Hope it works for you!

Automatic needle threader on brother se-350


Hi - first, make sure that you raise the needle to as far up as it will go. When you thread the machine, make sure you pass the thread through each number along the path - there is a hook on the threader mechanism that is really easy to miss. It is always a good idea to refer to the book when you are having a problem.

You might also try changing the needle. The threader has a teeny hook that goes in to the eye of the needle from behind, grabs the thread, and pulls it back thru the eye of the needle.

The threader can go out of alignment. If you got the machine last fall, it should still be under warranty. You can call Brother and ask where you can take the machine for repair. Or, you can go to Brother's website and look for information that might be helpful.

Good luck,
Ginny
