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 have an old Singer Sewing Machine Model 786, there seems to be a problems with cobbling underneath, causing looping on the underside I presume its the bobbin but have been unable to fix, I do not have...


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

Bobbins


Have a look at this website on the threading page, if your machine is not listed look at some of the other Kenmore machines and you will get the idea of how to remove the bobbin case. Basically you will find a small latch across the front of the bobbin case, pull the latch away from the case and hey presto.
