The information did not display when I click on solve.
The best information I have is that Brother Corp bought out Jones Sewing Co in 1968. If they rebranded the sewing machines I can not tell. You can search;
and see if anything matches your machine from the retired models.

Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

You have a great machine. These are hard to thread but once you have mastered it, you'll have many years of great use. The owner's manual has instructions, as well as the inside door of the machine (the door that folds down on the front bottom part of the machine. However, you might want to follow-up with your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Most are eager to help you even if you didn't purchase the machine from them. Some even have classes on using the serger. You might try several stores in the area. Suggest that it be serviced and cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
One fundamental tip is to follow the color coding, start with green, then blue/navy, then red, and finally yellow. The sequence is work inside to outside with threading (green - blue - red - yellow). Do not try different order--especially with green and blue -- since the threads build on each other. I have switched yellow and red with no impact but green then blue is always the proper order.

SOURCE: I have an old Brother
you can take it to your local sewing and vacume repair shop as THEY are the experts, but I deal in Vintage machines and they're only worth what someone will pay for them. Because of the difficulty in finding replacement parts, few working seamstresses will want them and they're usually only purchased for novelty value....... and then there's the name, sorry, it's not exactly a Rolls Royce of sewing machines. hope this helps more than it hurts.:)
