I got a used speedylock 299D--they could not find the manual---and the decal that shows how to thread the machine does not match what I see of the machine. Is there a better picture somewhere?

White speedylock 1600 thread keeps breaking

rethread the machine to make sure it's threaded correctly & that the thread is not caught anywhere

put new needles

check the thread tension, it sounds like it's to tight

use a can of computer air & clean out around the loopers area for lint or loose threads

if none of these suggestions work, then having it serviced would be the next suggestion

Far right thread(green dot) keeps coming unthreaded. What am I doing wrong. I also need a manual as I have lost mine. Where can I get one?

You can download one for free at under customer support, instruction manuals, enter 1634. You may benefit going under their frequently asked questions and see some good diagrams on threading overlock machines. The dot color may not match yours but most of the machines I have seen usually thread pretty much the same way. On mine, I have a certain sequence for threading, ie. the 2nd from the right has to be threaded first. Sorry this is so long but I really want to help you and hope that I have.

I am in need for needles for my Speedylock 1600 What kind of needles do I use......the manual says household type.....does that mean a regular sewing Is machine needle? Is there a size or number?

The plain ol' Singer-type needles are what you need, they're pretty much the standard through the household sewing machine/serger industry.

Match your needles to the material you're using (thickness of the needle) and the thread you're using (eye size). There's generally a chart on the needle package to clue you in there.

That's a nice machine, good luck with it!

The tension on my overlock is not the good one,

make sure your thread is running between the tension discs and there is no fluff between your tension discs
