I need help with threading the necchi 857 overlocker imhave spent 5 hours trying to get it to work

Um-hmm. Been there, done that! Hopefully, you have a manual (I'm not able to find one online).

Here are a couple of hints:

Remove all the thread from the machine.
Recommend using the colored threads that match the machine's guide--will help you figure out which thread is misbehaving.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and thread each in the correct order! Check your manual, but most machines need to be threaded #3 (upper looper), #4 (lower looper), then the needles.
With each thread, grasp the thread below the thread tree and also below the tension disk and give a gentle tug. Sometimes the thread will pop when it seats in the tension unit.
The lower looper thread tail should drape OVER the top of the upper looper and thread, then sweep all threads toward the back of the machine and under the presser foot.

You might try contacting the Necchi Support service.

I have a Janome memory craft 350. it makes clunky then the thread breaks, I've changed needles, oiled the machine, even got new thread, it keeps on happening.

consult your user manual for 'clunky'.

contact a repair facility and take it in - if you are a normal user of a Janome (or other sewing machine), you have neither tools nor expertise to repair it if it is breaking thread.

it is possible - from re-reading your posted question - that the thread is defective - is that thread approved for use on your machine ? (call repair facility and ask - they will be happy to consult/help you in case you need repairs later on. you really need to tap a more experienced person who knows your machine and it's typical problems well.... the 'fix' could be as simple as using a different brand of thread.)

Need help adjusting the lower tension on my Viking sewing machine. Lower tension causes strait stitches; upper tension (zigzag) adds bunches of thread. I don't know where to adjust tensions. Help.

Generally, bobbin tension is set at the factory and is usually a "last attempt" to alter. Sounds like you are probably experiencing bird nesting or thread nesting which is a top thread issue.

Be sure to install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Set the top tension to the mid-point and retest your machine.

Tension is correct when top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. It is a tug of war between the two threads. When there is equal pull, the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up and the bobbin thread pulls the top thread down. Increasing the top tension pulls the bobbin thread further up, decreasing top tension will allow the bobbin thread to pull the top thread down.

I have a designer se the take up lever keeps dropping the thread

Try threading with a figure-of-eight motion - take the thread to the left of the take-up lever hook, across through the hook, then down to the needle. This makes the thread cross itself below the take-up lever hook and may help keep the thread in place. Also be sure that your thread is in the tension disks properly. Always thread with the presser foot raised so the tension disks are open and the thread can seat itself properly. If this does not help, you probably need to see a machine technician.

Owner's manual

I found a website for you that might help. They have a lot of kenmore manuals including one similiar to your model#148.12051. The manual opened as model 1205 so maybe searching for your model as the 1201 might help too. hope this helps! =)

I can't thread the Shark Euro0pro 384 unng the automatic threader

You need to check to see that there is a small hook going through the eye of the needle when you use the threader. A flashlight or bright light will help. So will a magnifying glass. If it isn't, then no amount of trying will help.
If it goes through the eye, you need to see that your thread hooks into it so that the thread can be pulled through.

Check upper thread

These machines typically have threading issues. In the thread path, there is a sensor that reads the thread. It quite often gets lint and pieces of thread. Where the thread goes through the thread path on the upper read is usually the culprit. Take off the plastic cover where the thread goes from rear towards front...look for the metal plates and carefully clean between them. You also need to make sure that thread goes all the way to the inside of these discs. I try to always pull the thread from spool and thread end to make sure it gets properly seated.

If this is indeed a Viking machine you might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -
Good luck.
