When I select zigzag, the needle moves to the right, but when I sew, the needle stays in the right position but sews straight.

It has probably stuck even though never used and stored in the original box. You may want to have a sewing machine technician look at it.

Hi there. Empisal EM-250 Deluxe Sewing Machine, I'm realy battling to get the tension, top and bottom, and the material doesn't want to go thru by itself. PLEASE can you help?? Regards, Adri

If the fabric will not feed through it suggests that the feed dogs have possibly been left down.
Getting tension right is really a matter of trial and error. Work through them starting with lowest number on the upper first leaving the lower tension alone. If you need to change the lower tension, do it by very slight turns of the bobbin screw and note carefully which way you turn it and by how much as there are no numbers to follow.

You might check that there is no lint trapped in the tension discs before starting as this can cause problems. Run a thick thread through them to clean.

Need to replace Thread Tension Dial on my Empisal EM 250 DeLuxe Sewing Machine. Please help

Poppie, are you still stuck? I have a vintage Empisal and did the same thing - but I finally figured out how to put the tension back together. Check out my blog to see if you have a similar machine and I may be able to help.
kind regards

With the needle hitting the bobbin case , it sounds like it might be out of time. Which I am sorry to say is not an easy at-home fix.
