Normal setting will depend on what you want to do with your machine. The standard factory tension setting is the mid-point of each thread dial. However, if you are doing a rolled edge, you will need to consult your manual to determine where each dial should be set to deliver the results you seek.
Hi, getting a lettuce edging on knit is not in the settings . To get this effect, you need to stretch the fabric as you feed it thru the machine. Try it on a scrap first to get the right effect, then try it for real,
Did you change to the narrow stitch finger? The narrow one is in the door of the machine where the other tools are -- a little square box on the left of where the needle box slides in. Sometimes that is needed instead of the normal one.
Caution: If you have never before changed it out, open the left door all the way and look and see where the stitch finger is coming out of before you remove it all the way. Refer to your manual.
Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.
