I have a Juki MO 655 Serger which I am relatively new to. I can't seem to get it to sew a 4 thread overlock stitch, as the Left needle doesn't sew- I have changed the needle and rethreaded about 20 times! Anyone have any thoughts about this?

Never mind- got it!! For others who might have the same problem - on the Juki 655 - there is also a chain stitch - (haven't got that working yet!) - I was putting the second needle in the hole that goes with that -- I never realized that there were two needles very close together -- (duh!!) Okay - now I know-- on to the chain stitch!

Don't feel bad! I've had these sorts of difficulties with sergers. Everything has to be just right, threaded in the correct order, etc. Happy serging!
