Question about Singer Sewing Machines
If it's the lower looper thread breaking, the cure is to unthread the eye of the needle(s), rethread the lower looper, then rethread the needles. Sergers have very specific internal crossings that are easiest to do if the various parts are threaded in a particular order. Typically, you thread the upper looper, then lower looper, then the needles. If you try to deviate from that without knowing exactly what you're doing, it tends not to work well.
In general, most serger troubles, especially for beginners, trace to minor misthreadings. It's easier, in my opinion, to rethread the entire machine from scratch than look for the minor error that's catching you up. And you learn the threading pattern well as a special bonus. <g>
If it's not cureable by rethreading a couple of times from scratch, the next thing to do is put in new needles, right way around, and rethread again.

I had the same problem for a LONG time. Yesterday I finally removed the top and the cover for the upper tension and found thread fragments under one of the discs. I removed it and used compressed air for dust clean out and it is working wonderfully. Good Luck

Here is a threading guide - http://www.singerco.com/pdf/14SH654_threading.pdf
Before you start, raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.
Open/set the tensions to zero.
Raise the presser foot.
Turn the handwheel until the loopers are at the highest position.
