Question about Brother 1034D Serger Sewing Machine
I tried to serge a thick fabric and at one point, the fabric got stuck. Now when I try to serge, the upper looper hits, overlaps the lower looper and I can't serge. How can I fix this?
The upper/lower looper need realignment, requires a qualified technician to do this.

SOURCE: Upper and lower parts hitting
It sounds like the timing of the loopers is out they will need to be reset correctly within millimeters. If not done properly they can hit and bend or break easily and most are not cheap parts. Best it goes to a repair centre as it will work out more cost effective than the damaged caused by getting it wrong.

The lower looper thread MUST be threaded before the needles are threaded. You must also be sure the lower looper thread is pushed and staying all the way to the left before it is threaded through the looper eye. Double check the threading diagram and count the number of guides the thread passes through. Count how many guides you have actually passed it through. It must be the same. The dealer you bought it from should be willing to show you if you can't figure it out.

I have a Brother CE 4000 Computer sewing machine. I had the same problem when I first used it. I worked with it several hours but to no avail so I decided to stop and wait until my head clear..
I went back a couple of days later. Reread the manual and started over. I discovered my problem was that I was threading the bobbin wrong. Once I threaded it precisely as the manual stated it worked fine.
So this might be your problem. Make sure that the thread on the bobbin is wind on properly. It should be wound evenly. The bobbin must be threaded precisely as the manual says.
Try rethreading the bobbin and the machine
and see if that help.

Top tension back to 4 and leave the bobbin tension as is.
Make sure you have a new needle for the type of fabric being sewn installed with the flat side to the back of the machine. A bent needle can sometimes go unnoticed.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up and this will give proper tension to the stitch.
Check the manual to be sure you are threading correctly (always with the presser foot up) and that the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the guides.
Take hold of the thread at the needle as you lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.
