Have you checked that there are no obstructions in the film path, broken pieces of film, and cleaned through? Check that first

If it is still losing the loops as well as not being stable after this I would suggest lubricating a film and trying again.

Greg, is this 802 a super 8 only model, or the dual 8 (regular and super 8) version? Are you using the correct film gauge and trimming the leader correctly first?

Greg, you say its flickering! Try cleaning the rubber coated disk! Also you can adjust the speed!
