How to thread a Empisal overlocker.. model 760C


Perhaps the manual would help:

Empisal Overlocker 760C Empisal Sewing Machines

On most machines, it is important to ALWAYS raise the presser foot when threading the machine (although the instruction manual says to raise the presser foot only to pull the thread tail under it). Be sure to give the thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk to seat it properly. Be sure to thread in the order as specified (Upper looper, Lower looper, Right needle, Left Needle). If the machine messes up, it is usually a best policy to remove all the thread and rethread from the beginning. Threading out of order will almost guarantee failure!!!

I cant feed the overlocker.. so it dont want to work


Best to refer to the owner's manual. You can search the internet for the Make + Model + the word "Manual" and you may find a free download.

ALWAYS raise the presser foot while threading the machine.

Be sure to thread each in the order specified in the manual (usually, Upper Looper, Lower Looper, then the needles). Threading in the incorrect order will guarantee failure!

If a thread breaks or the machine messes up, it's usually best to remove All the threads and rethread from the beginning.

To start out, it helps to use a combination of different color threads.

Set the tensions to the midway point (the standard for basic overlocking).

I cant figure out the bobbin part getting thread to come up to the needle please help or how to do the whole bobbin thing


Depending on the brand of machine, you insert your bobbin into the bobbin holder, thread the top part of your machine, including the needle, then turn the wheel on the side of the machine by hand and it will catch the thread that is in the bobbin and it will pull it up through the bobbin hole. Once it is pulled up through the hole, near your needle, you will pull the thread towards the back of the machine and leave it. Then start sewing.

Cant get my tension right on my brother sewing machine vx 877 can you help me


Thread the machine with the presser foot up and then adjust the tension to the setting you need - general purpose sewing thread is around 4.

Threading with the foot raised is important as this opens the tension control and allows the thread to properly seat into the mechanism.

When a sewing machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as intended and the tension control has nothing to control.

If this does not help, the machine may need the the spring in the tension control replaced. You will have to search for parts on the Internet or check with a Brother dealer.

I cant set the tension on my PFAFF 7570 the thread keeps


First make sure your needle is in correctly. Then make sure you are threading the machine correctly especially make sure you thread the take-up lever. Make sure your tension dial is at a 4 to 5. if this does not work, let me know

Bobbin help please!


Take out the raceway and check for broken threads/lint. Unthread the machine and put in a new needle taking care to insert it correctly. It may be that the needle is slightly bent. Put everything back carefully and check it is running smoothly with NO THREAD first(no bobbin thread either-use an empty bobbin). This will prove there is nothing catching. If it catches when you thread it then you are having a problem with incorrect threading.
