Question about Kenmore 16622 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The loopers must be threaded before the needles.
Make sure that the needles are not threaded. Thread the loopers and have the loose ends behind the presser foot. Then re-thread the needles and place a scrap of fabric under the foot and sew. Make sure that the edge of the fabric is not to the right of the plate, but where it would be if the knife had cut it.

I recently made a deal with a lady to trade her serger for my labor. I'm a professional seamstress and I just landed this awesome sewing machine. I, too, was having so many problems when trying to re-thread this machine. It's very tricky. You must have the "Looper Threader". This is the greatest tool since sliced bread. Never thought I'd say that! But, believe me when I say this. With little money to actually purchase this little gem of a tool, I decided to make my very own. It's works perfectly and I have had absolutely no problems in re-threading my machine since I made this. Funny, because the tool itself is not expensive at all. But, because I'm very capable of doing this sort of thing, that's what I did.
Hope this helps for you.
