This might sound too basic for you but check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.

SOURCE: I bought a 2nd hand

I haven't been able to locate a manual for this machine at first look. The only Empisal manual I did find was called "Expandamatic" at this site http://sewingonline.co.uk/empisal.html there is an image of the model. Or you could try www.2instructions.com or www.manualfox.com and see if they have something available to buy.

However, http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/bb/sewingmachines.htm this website gives lots of general information on sewing machines, how to use, basic threading up in a general way and other tips and tricks.

In general terms most sewing machines will have the following controls:
stitch length selector/dial - to choose length of stitch, usually goes from zero to 4, normal straight stitch would be 2.5.

Stitch width selector - early models only did straight and zigzag, so by adjusting this knob you would set how wide the zig zag stitch is. If your machine does other stitch combinations, then you would use this to set the width for those too. Again, probably ranges from zero (straight stitch would be zero) up to 4.

A tension dial setting to adjust the tension on the top thread, usually set to 5, but would range from zero to 10.

If your machine does anything more than straight and zigzag, then it would have some other dial or stitch selector or even a cam that you insert to get these other stitches.

I hope this helps you get started with your machine.

SOURCE: My daughter removed the tension

Hi. Start by taking everything back off. There should be the knob, a spring, two matching discs and one disc that is smaller than the other two. The two matching discs should go on first and should mirror one another with the flaring edges both facing out from where the discs touch. Then goes the smaller disc, then the spring with the larger end on the discs. Screw on the knob with the numbers facing out, all the way down till it stops and that should be the maximum setting. Back it off all the way to where the tension is indicated as 3 for your starting point. By the way, do all of that with the foot lowered. Raising the foot should separate the tension discs, which makes it possible to pull your work piece out from under the sewing area without breaking the thread.

Sounds like your tension is vibrating off to a least tension position, When the machine does this again check your tension button. Hope this is the solution?

Thread, Tension, Needle.

Make sure your needle matches your application. example: heavy denim needs a heavy needle (90-100) instead of the "universal" needle that usually comes with a machine.

Also make sure that when you thread your machine that you have the pressure foot in the up position. Many machines release the tension discs in this position allowing for proper threading. Also make sure there is no fluff, lint, etc., in your tension areas.

It dose not sew, and when it dose the bobbin tangles up and lets out too much thread


The bobbin goes into the holder in what would appear to be the wrong direction ie, the thread doubles back. If this is correct, the bobbin tension might be too low, there is a screw on the bobbin holder to set the tension.

Hello there, loosen your top thread tension,if it looping on top of the material the tension is way too tight, you will also find changing the thread size to smaller thread, the top tension will also reduce,depending on application a good size thread to use is 25 grade,bobbin tension should have just a slight amount of drag as the top thread and bottom work against each other when sewing.
