I don't think yoou have this problem but I realized that when I was using a singer needle on my brother machine...Then the threader didn't catch it since the needle always was abit lower.....
Make sure you have the right needle while using the threader ...
Good luck :D

another way to do it is to thread the needle before putting it into the machine. thread first, then place the needle in the machine.

That was going to be my next question...do you have to use a special needle?
I can get the needle threaded most of the time without problems....but it would be nice to get the threader to work too.

With my machine, it didn't matter what needle it was/is.

Can't help you there, my Elnas have the threader but I can do it quicker without so I don't use it.
Butterflywing-yes, wetting the hole in the needle helps tremendously. A friend of mine told me about it several years ago, I've been doing it ever since.

I have yet to have success with the one on my machine. I can never get it to work. I've tried, read the instructions, still doesn't work. I can also thread it faster without it.

I thought I would NEVER get the hang of using mine on my Bernina...I kept telling my dealer that it just wouldn't work...she kept telling me it was "operator error" :roll: ..Now I'm so used to it..it works EVERY time and very quickly...the secret was to hit the hookie thing (that I can't see) then pull the thread slightly upwards..not really pulling, just move it..kinda., then push down the button and viola'...threaded! Thank goodness for it when I'm embroidering!

It took me a little while to get the hang of the threader on my Bernina as well. but now...... I use it every time, once in a while it make take a second try to get threaded but i think it is wonderful.

My little Singer has one, that I can't make work. It just gets in the way. I'd take it off, but I can't figure out how to do that either :) :)

I have a magnifing glass at my sewing machine. If the needle threader isn't working right I can look at the little hook thru the magnifier to help me thread the machine. Works everytime.
