If it's a brand new machine, immediately return it where you purchased it. They should provide you with a properly working machine.

How to thread an empisal over locker ,DE-LUXE400

The manual should be helpful:
Empisal companion deluxe 400 user manual

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.

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!!!

Machine will not run

When I have this problem, I turn the knob back and forth (gently) to try to get the needle to release and lift. I get this error message when the needle has shifted (either in the fabric or from using the machine alot at the needle placement shifts).
check your needle, it probably has shifted a bit.
