Have you made sure the needle thread is the last to be threaded. If this thread is still under the loopers when you rethread, the threads will break .Sewit

You need to adjust the tension for your threads. Use scraps to test sew as you adjust the individual threads to bring them into proper balance. Your manual will tell you how to do this.

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.
always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
