Question about Bernina 1008
How do I thread my bernina 800d sewing machine
If it is a Bernina 800DL overlocker, the user manual is available for download at the bernina.com web site. Select "Support" and scroll down to Search Support Info for Bernina models. Once you download, you can enlarge the pictures on your computer screen as sometimes the photos are difficult to see in the book. Be sure to thread in the order as instructed. Guaranteed, your machine will not work if you do not thread in the proper order.
1. UPPER LOOPER FIRST
2. LOWER LOOPER SECOND, and the THREAD TAIL MUST CROSS OVER THE UPPER LOOPER AT THE LAST STEP.
3. Then thread the needles.
If any of threads are not fully seated in the tension disks, you will have issues.

The machine has a diagram (thread route) inside the front cover if you can follow the coloured dots through the thread guides you do not need a manual
I reccommend threading the upper looper first from thread stand (second thread on right) up to telescoping thread guide down to the appropriate guide (see coloured chart inside the front cover)
follow the coloured dots through the thread guides to the upper looper. Likewise with lower looper.
On the lower looper there is a small white catch, when the machine is advanced by turning the hand wheel so that the looper is furthest to right , that catch can be pulled down and the thread directed into the appropriate guide then it should be retracted upward thus allowing the lower looper thread to move to the left. Then complete the threading through the hole in the end of the lower looper.
Threading the needles is fairly straight forward making sure the needles,are in all the way up so that the left needle is higher than right needle once completed rotate hand wheel so that needles are in upper position, gently pull all the threads under the presser foot and off to left side.
As a rule of thumb the looper tensions should be set at a slightly lower number than the needles or the needle tensions at a slightly higher number
