All industrial machines have a sight glass to determine oil level. Most have two red lines--lower is lowest amount of oil to run. Upper is highest amount to run. Some machines show level of oil but some have a vertical rod. The end of the rod is the oil level. It will raise as you pour oil in.

That is unusual as the oil indicator on your machine is a simple eyeglass and not a flotation type. If you were to drain the machine the eyeglass will be clear. When you refill you will see the eyeglass turn black--this is your oil level. Bring it up to the upper line. As a rule of thumb most overlock machines take less than a quart (.95 liter). The manual does not specify exact amount. Here is the link:http://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=B531-0225#.VTOg51tFCM8
