I recently bought this machine and when I tried to use the automatic threader--can't get it to work. It says if the light is red, reporition the needle. If it's green everythings ok--but what if there is no light?

In order to use the thread cassette your machine has to be on. You can damage the machine if it isn't on. Look just to the right of the cassette housing lid. there is a little oblong window there. That is your light. When you pop out your thread cassette it will turn green. When the tread cassette is loaded it is white and hard to notice.
Now, here is a trick I discovered since I couldn't get my cassette to auto thread the needle with any consistancy. When you thread the cassette, instead of cutting the thread at #6 position, leave a tail of thread about 6 -8 inches long. Hold the tail loosely (it needs to be able to slide) in you left hand while installing the cassette. When you install the cassette the thread will catch in the needle and the tail will be automatically cut. Finish pulling the loop through the eye of the needle to thread it, then pull the remaining tail out of the top of the cassette housing area. Yes it wastes a bit of thread but the aggravation it saves is priceless!
