Serger needles are different from regular sewing machine needles, but like sewing machine needles, they are generic. That means that if you buy a serger needle, it should fit most sergers from any manufacturer.
My favorite manufacturer is Organ; they've been in business for a long time and manufacture for commercial and home machines and sergers and they're quite inexpensive.
Janome Overlockers (sergers) are set at the factory with #14 Red Tip needles
For finer fabrics, the #11 Blue Tip is good
If the #11 breaks, then try a #14 as they are a little heavier duty

some times when you break a needle in a sewing machine or serger it can cause the machine to jump time, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked for a timing problem or to see if when the needle broke it caused a problem with another part in the serger.
This is a very highly regarded serger. Check out the reviews on http://sewing.patternreview.com if you're interested--but they are all extremely positive.
I also checked out the White Sewing Machine site--the three sergers they currently sell all use regular sewing machine needles.
Based on what I read on both sites, I believe your machine also uses regular sewing machine needles (not all sergers do, BTW). To be absolutely certain, you can call the White Help Line (l 800-331-3164, Monday through Friday 8AM to 5PM, EST).
If your serger uses regular sewing machine needles, then the size of the needle depends on the type of fabric you're sewing. Sizes 8 to 10 for lightweight fabrics, 12 to 14 for medium weight fabrics, and 16 to 18 for heavy weight. Use ballpoint needles for knits, jeans needles for denim, and universal needles or sharps for woven fabrics.
