Here's your manual! 😎
Google it, as recommended above, then choose a video, put it on, and let it guide you through threading the machine. That's what we did. The diagrams then make more sense, so you probably won't need to thread it with the video more than a couple of times.
if Robyns answer doesn't work, try youtube for 'threading a serger'. Most simple 4 thread sergers are pretty much alike in the threading.
Margie, Robyn seems to have given you the link to the instructions. I've found that if you mark dots on your machine with a permanent Sharpie pen, it is easier to remember if it's a while in between uses of your machcne. Even drawing your own diagram is worthwhile!
