I was just testing the serger I recently bought used after threading it. I might had forgotten to disengage the right looper and now it looks like it had clashed and twisted (looped towards me) after sewing a row of 3 thread flatlock. Can someone help me how to move the looper back to position. It's rubbing against the other loopers.
Thanks.

Unfortunately I think you may need a technician. Usually with a problem like this, even though you may push the looper back your timing will likely be out and that's not really something you do yourself.

Hi Sue!
Thanks for your reply. I think I should send it in too. I was just so eager to test it out after purchasing it. It's my first Pfaff serger though used. I think I forgot to disengage the looper and it somehow slipped or jammed and and slipped.
Thanks again.
