I had this problem once before but I can't remember if I solved it or took the left needle out...I rarely use all 4 server threads.

I rethreaded from scratch for a 4 thread overlock, and when I tested my fabric, the left needle thread was not chaining with the rest. It was sewing a stitch, but the whole thing looked almost like a mock safety stitch, with the left stitch line a mm or so away from the rest of the stitching. What the heck?!?!

Any ideas? When I ditched the left needle impatiently, the 3 thread stitch worked perfectly as usual...

Either your needle isn't far enough up in the machine or it is dull. Try changing it.
