SOURCE: My sewing machine Empisal EM-250

The zig-zag stitching is done with an elliptical cam that moves the bottom plate - it's an purely mechanical movement that should be engaged and disengaged by that button.
If the button doesn't work then the lever to which it is attached no longer disconnects the cam. The machine must be dismantled, the mechanism of the bottom placed accessed and the failed part (either the lever itself or one of the pins holding it in place) identified and replaced.
A relatively simple job, but one that requires some experience in dealing with. If you have never done this before and have no idea how a sewing machine mechanism looks like then you must take it to a repair shop - you will do more harm than good.

How to thread an empisal over locker ,DE-LUXE400

The manual should be helpful:

It is always best to start out with brand new needles.

Before beginning to thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot throughout the threading process. This releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.

Follow the thread order when threading or your machine will most likely never work properly. Usually, it would be the upper looper first, the lower looper next, and then the needles. However, your manual should clarify that. Also, when threading each, be sure to give each thread an extra little tug when it goes through the tension disk to make sure it seats correctly.

Hi there. Empisal EM-250 Deluxe Sewing Machine, I'm realy battling to get the tension, top and bottom, and the material doesn't want to go thru by itself. PLEASE can you help?? Regards, Adri

If the fabric will not feed through it suggests that the feed dogs have possibly been left down.
Getting tension right is really a matter of trial and error. Work through them starting with lowest number on the upper first leaving the lower tension alone. If you need to change the lower tension, do it by very slight turns of the bobbin screw and note carefully which way you turn it and by how much as there are no numbers to follow.

You might check that there is no lint trapped in the tension discs before starting as this can cause problems. Run a thick thread through them to clean.

Mrs Kruger, try Brother's web site. They made Empisal machines and are pretty good with manuals.

Poppie, are you still stuck? I have a vintage Empisal and did the same thing - but I finally figured out how to put the tension back together. Check out my blog to see if you have a similar machine and I may be able to help.
