I can't find my instruction booklet that tells me how to thread the overlocker. I can't find one online either. Does anyone have a PDF they can share?

Google "Janome Aldi overlocker" - the manual should be on the first page of results under "PDF - Overlocker - Stirling Aldi"

Don't Purchase your overlocker from a reputable dealer where you can get follow up and help not from an off the shelf outlet where there is little or no product knowledge

Does anyone have a scanned copy of the manual ? Mine has gone AWOL and I'm quite new to over locking. Help would be much appreciated.

Hi there!! Did you come right with the Manual? I have found the Jenome8002D instruction manual. The Lumina machine looks like a cheaper replica of the Jenome - what do you think?
Here is the link to the Jenome manual. Perhaps it might help.

how to thread a lumina over lock machine

Hi Shama
Threading can be done, but you have to be very patient and dexterous (almost a contortionist!). It is not easy, that is why I no longer have my Lumina machine. Jean

I use a long thin handled gadget that is designed for turning sewn pieces inside out, as it has a tiny hook and latch on the end you can push it through the gap under the machine and grab the thread after the second last hole is threaded and pull the tread through to thread the final part of the looper. I have spent a lot of time today learning that trick otherwise the machine has been great. There are you tube videos that helped too. The machine seems to actually be a janome so try videos about that this one was good

Use a pair of tweezers and watch this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zszJYQe2aws
