I need help with threading the necchi 857 overlocker imhave spent 5 hours trying to get it to work
Um-hmm. Been there, done that! Hopefully, you have a manual (I'm not able to find one online).
Here are a couple of hints:
Remove all the thread from the machine.
Recommend using the colored threads that match the machine's guide--will help you figure out which thread is misbehaving.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and thread each in the correct order! Check your manual, but most machines need to be threaded #3 (upper looper), #4 (lower looper), then the needles.
With each thread, grasp the thread below the thread tree and also below the tension disk and give a gentle tug. Sometimes the thread will pop when it seats in the tension unit.
The lower looper thread tail should drape OVER the top of the upper looper and thread, then sweep all threads toward the back of the machine and under the presser foot.
You might try contacting the Necchi Support service.

Necchi 575FA how to put the bobbin spool in the case?Bobbin mats up with a lot of threads on the bottom stich.
The problem most likely is not the bobbin. The problem is the top thread. If thread is knotting, tangling under the fabric, it is a top thread problem.
Remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
If there are still thread clumps under the fabric, you will need to increase the top tension. (The extra thread appearing under the fabric is excess top thread hanging up under the fabric.) You may need to keep adjusting the top tension until both top & bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

We have a 48 year old necchi sewing machine and
Dad taught me to service machines when I was about 12. Back then, foot pedals ran on small discs of carbon, and he gave me lots, to service My foot pedal. That was circa 1960. Likely you need a replacement foot pedal. I would look for one on Ebay. Just - where I find all sorts of 'Stuff'.
