I know of no source for manual. Best to find someone that knows how and have them teach you. None of the youtube videos are very close to your model.

My threads won't stay in the first tension disk. Of the 4 only the 2nd needle area will hold the thread in the very first tension. What am I doing wrong or does the machine need to go in the shop?

The solution is very simple, You need to hold the thread with both hands, one in front and one in back of the tension discs and then push don until it snaps into the discs. Also, there is a right way and a wrong way to begin threading. Do you have a manual? It will show you.

I received a cd with my machine showing step by step how to thread it. I put the machine beside my computer and threaded it step by step by watching the cd. One problem I had after threading it was not being able to sew a chain without the thread matting up and making a real "mess". The problem was I did not push the thread up against the machine until it clicked. That sets the tension. Try that and if you still have a problem email me and I will try to help.

Sometimes the thread tension needs to be cleaned out. I put a smal screw driver in where the silver tension guides are (between the dials) and open them up and wiggle them a little bit.
If the machine is cutting theads and or not catching threads on the back the timing may need to be adjusted.

What type of stitch are you trying to do?
