Not sure but try pushing the blade down with your finger then moving the switch to the left.

SOURCE: My 1034D Brother Serger foot raiser lever on

mine just did the same thing - i opened it up (you have to remove the light) and it's a small plastic piece that seems to be just glued into place to lift the pressure foot when it rotates... a bit disappointing - i will try glueing it back but i don't know if it will last for long. i am very disappointed!!!

How do I adjust the seam allowance to cut 1/4 inch

To the right of the cutter, on the front cover, there are markings indicating various seam allowances. Placing the fabric edge along the specific seam allowance will automatically cut off the required amount of fabric and the serged seam will be on the seam line. Do a test sample first to ensure that the marked lines refer to the left needle or to the single needle that you are using.
Yes, there is a blade position dial too. It is located closest to you on the left side on the bottom. The larger the number, the wider the seam. Again make a few test samples to ensure the results that you are seeking.
Happy stitching.

Machine wont cut

Sounds like the blade didn't go in all the way. Try to reingage it. You should feel/hear a click when it is where it needs to be. Good luck

Knife cutting knives

Remove the stichplate and snap out the plastic cover over the thread cutter (left most end of machine). This exposes the thread cutter mechanism. You should then be able to position the knife arm back into the mechanism (two pins on the cutter mechanism that insert in a hole in each actuating arm).

Brother 1034d serger. Seems unusually noisy (mechanically) in needle/cutter area. Not motor or belt as noise is metal parts clacking even after new needles, cleaning, oiling. Is this sound normal for...

in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly.
as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say.
it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment
or a part may have broken .
