Usually the suffix number is just a code which tells White where the machine was made. The 1599 should be close enough to get you going. BTW... Singer bought and digitized a lot of White manuals. You can find them at singerco.com under support. Here's the link for you. http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1094_white-1599-x.pdf
I'm assuming this is a domestic overlocker machine and not an industrial coverlock. Getting the coverlock stitch to sew out evenly without skipping can be problematic apparently with these.
First, if you are sewing a knit fabric, change the needles to ball points and see if this resolves it.
If not, I would suggest trying EX705 needles (assuming that your machine takes the regular domestic 130/705H needle system). The EX are just extra long scarf at the back which helps with securing the stitch on the underside. There is also a SUX needle, which is same long scarf but a stretch needle; for knits particularly those with elastane in them.
Thread wise, try Maxilock brand. You may find a wooly overlock thread on the underside works too.
You can download the manual from the Singer sewing machine web-site. Go to customer support/ product manuals/ and enter 1599. You'll then be able to download a pdf of the White sewing machine manual for free!
You can download White manuals from Singer. Just go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html and type W in the search box. The next page will be a list of White machines with manuals available. They may not have the exact model (as in my case), but there will be a similar one.
