We get lots of orders from Brother PR600, PR620 & PR650 Embroidery Machine owners for spares and accessories. One of the most common orders is for a new needle threader. Steve has made a short photo sequence showing you how to fit the needle threader below.
This demonstrates replacing the Needle Threader on your Brother PR600 or PR620 and also the Babylock in the US.
Please note, we have created this page as a guide only. If you damage your machine in the process, we cannot be held responsible.
On your control screen, select Needle 1 and then remove Needle 1 from your machine.
Switch the machine off.
Carefully remove the side plate caps using the Needle Allen Key.
Remove the Top Side Cover.
Undo the screw from the bottom plate and gently pull the side cover away from the machine. Being careful not to break the cover.
Gently push the Driver Bar all the way down.
Gently prise the ‘leg’ of the Needle Threader up.
(Not the best picture, I know. I’ll try and take a clearer picture and add it later).
Ease out the small shaft and remove the Needle Threader.
Watch out for the small spring on the rear shaft. If it flies off and lands on your carpet you may not find it again, but your dog might.
The small Spring sldes onto the rear shaft.
Push the Needle Threader back into position. Make sure the small ‘Lug’ on the Needle Threader ‘Leg’ clips into the recess on the shaft.
Gently pull the side cover away from the machine…
…and pull the Driver Bar all the way up.
Steve uses an old Brother knitting machine needle.
Fit 6 new embroidery machine needles as you don’t want to risk a bent needle damaging your new Needle Threader!
Slowly push the Driver Bar down to move the Needle Threader forward. Stop the Needle Threader before it reaches the needle and check to see that it is going to line up with the eye of the needle.
If all is well:
- Slowly pull the Driver Bar back up
- Replace the side covers, screws & caps
- Test your Needle Threader
