I have had my S21 about a year now and I hardly ever use it because I have had such a hard time with the coverstitch and setting the tensions. I thought if everyone could come together and share their tips and tricks they have found that we would all be better owners of this machine.
I have had a cheap singer serger from Wal-mart for about 8 years now that I have never had a problem with. I wanted a coverstitch so I purchased the S21. I would LOVE to utilize it but need a lot of guidance. I am hoping that there are more people out there that can come together for discussions that might be in the same boat.
I look forward to hearing from everyone!

Did you buy from a dealer that gives lessons?

The S21 was my first serger. It is an okay serger. I did have trouble when it went out of timing. I felt it was flimsy with tensions. The plastic does seem inferior. I traded it up for a Bernina 1150mda. something I should have bought instead of the flimsy Husqvarna. I bought the machine solely for the amount of stitches and like you the coverstitch capability.
I know someone here can help and most importantly your dealer where you bought this machine from. They will be able to give you the support you need.
Bernina 1130, Bernina Artista 200, Bernina 750QE
Bernina 1150MDA, Pfaff 1471, Pfaff 2044
Now no more sewing machines for a very long time unless it's vintage.
