Same thing happened to me. I took it apart and got it fixed but then could not get it to lock down (wouldnt go down the whole way) There is a plastic that locks it down (if that is broken your out of luck)--and springs that pop it up. The key to getting it back in place is to push it down very evenly straight so that both of the metal rods go directly into each of their respective holes.

Just twist and pull backward on the tip where the seam is. It does kind of feel like you're going to break it, but it won't--it is made to snap off like this.

By any chance did you check the throttle??? A lot of even the newer models get jammed. This is caused by no lubrication. Try to lubricate the machine and give it a whirl, bet it works!!! Please do not forget to vote for the help you got today.... Guy :)

if your clippers have a power setting screw on the side try adjusting it. turn till you hear it make a godawful noise then dial it back till it runs smooth. if that does not fix the prob, your blades might not be aligned properly

SOURCE: Can't get the Lock Cutter
have you got the little silver arm with a gap in it (see photo above mounted over the needle bar? This is essential as the movement of the needle bar going up and down is driving the blades in this attachment.
The walking foot attachment for sewing machines works the same way, you need to place the little arm over the needle bar to make this aftermarket accessory work as its not driven by the sewing machine motor, purely by the movement of the needle bar.
Saying that, I would be suprised if this attachment cut heavy weight fabric or several layers well, like many things made to imitate a purpose built machine (serger) there is no substitute for the real thing. It might be fine to just trim the fabric loose threads off a fabric edge but also you would need to watch that the trimmed bits are going somewhere and not getting into the seam or your machine. On a serger, the blades are working right beside a vertical drop off with a waste tray below and there is a lot of lint and fibres trimmed which quickly builds up. With this attachment, you'd have to manually ensure that the trimmed fibres are swept out of the way.
I hope this helps you to get it working though - 4 thumbs up if so. :-)
