Threaded View
I inherited my grandmothers White Super Lock 534 and have not used one before.
 I don't have the instruction manual and it will not sew. I have it threaded
correctly
but it seems to be in a bind. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

First thing to do is get a manual.  One can be had here:

(I don't know, if you don't have a manual, how you can be sure it is  
threaded correctly. Serger threading is complicated.  How long since  
your grandmother used it and/or had it serviced?)

Next, follow instructions in the manual for a thorough cleaning and  
lubricating.  If that does not unbind it, take it to a reputable  
repair person.  Depending on where in the world you are, I recommend

Sounds like it needs a quick trip to the serger mechanic.  It's probably  
"sat" in one position long enough that there may be problems with the  
internal lubrication.  You may also have a looper timing problem.

is the manual for the machine (Singer has White manuals on their website).

Maybe Ron or someone who has had one will pop in to tell us if it's worth  
the bench fees to get it serviced. Some older sergers definitely are, some  
may not be.
