Raise the presser foot using the presser foot lever.
Raise the needle by turning the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise) so that the mark on the wheel points up, or press (needle position button) (for models equipped with the needle position button) once or twice to raise the needle.
If the needle is not correctly raised, the sewing machine can not be threaded. Be sure to turn the handwheel so that the mark on the wheel points up before threading the sewing machine.
Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin.
If the spool of thread is in the wrong place, or is set incorrectly, the thread may tangle on the spool pin and cause the needle to break.
Feed the upper thread as shown in the figure on the previous page.
Make sure you guide the thread through the thread take-up lever from right to left.
Put the thread behind the needle bar thread guide above the needle.The thread can easily be passed behind the needle bar thread guide by holding the thread in your left hand, then feeding the thread with your right hand.
While lowering the needle threader lever, hook the thread onto the guide.
Fully lower the needle threader lever.
The end of the needle threader rotates toward you and the hook passes through the eye of the needle.
Catch the thread on the hook as shown below.
While lightly holding the thread, release the needle threader lever.
The hook will pull the thread through the needle.
Pull out about 5 cm (2 inch) of thread through the needle toward the back of the sewing machine.
If you incorrectly feed the thread you may cause sewing problems.
