This is a take it to the repair shop thing for most folks... the timing is pretty delicately balanced. You may be able to study the looper positions in relation to the needles and gently persuade a looper into a better position, but truthfully, this is one I generally turn over to the pros... and I do 99% of my machine maintenance myself.

Want 1925 singer overlocker serial E0094118

There's only one machine in the world with that combination of model and serial number. You can probably find the same model number, though it won't have the same serial number, which is unique to a particular machine. That model is obsolete, so you'll be hunting the used market.
For what it's worth, I have a strong preference for Juki sergers... not widely advertized, but good machines that work well and are more heavy duty than most other sergers on the market. The Singers mostly don't last very long.

My serger won't stitch

Be sure you have new needles inserted correctly, threaded in order loopers then needles, check with diagram on machine or in manual to be sure correct. Still not working usually a sign of timing problem. Requires technician trained on serger repair.

Singer Overlocker/Sergers require particular threading order. If that does not help you may as I did have to take it to an Authorised repairer. It has to be a Singer Authorised as they have done training...

Sergers thread upper looper first, lower looper second, right needle third and left needle last in that order. If your thread breaks, CUT ALL THREADS and start from scratch or you will not get a good stitch or your machine may jam. It's probably just a "user error."
Good luck.

Lower looper problems

Some sergers require they be threaded in a particular order. If not, they do not "knit" the threads.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Open the tensions (set at zero). If the tension settings are automatic, raise the presser foot to open the tension settings.

Turn the handwheel so the loopers are at their highest position. There may be a mark on the side of the serger to match up with a mark on the hand wheel for this.

Open the front of the serger and the threading guide should be printed on the inside of the serger door, or on the serger.

Start at the right and note which looper is threaded first and then the needles.

You can find more information and manuals at the Singer Co website.
