How do I bypass the blades on a Riccar RL-343DR serger so I can hem?

Perhaps the manual would be helpful:

RICCAR RL343DR Instruction Book Page 14

It appears that you need to install a hemming foot.

It is not easy but it is very similar to stitching a blind hem on a sewing machine--except you will also have to be careful that the knives do not cut the fabric. It can be done, but some practice would be good before trying it on a garment. The skill is stitching on the very edge of the fabric without getting it into the knives. If you were to disable the cutting knives on your serger, you could very easily break a looper or knock the machine out of time because the knives prevent the fabric from extending into the looper action.

Here are some videos (more available online):

A coverstitch machine would stitch a hem such as what you want, but that's because it does not trim the fabric--it basically is like using a twin needle in a sewing machine.

Can't lock my cutting blade on my baby lock evolve serger for cover stitch.

99% of all serger problems can be solved by going to the manual, unthreading, cleaning out all lint and 'stuck' threads, pieces of fabric and such. After the visible stuff is removed a blast of canned air is used to get the tiny pieces.
It is possible that there is an obstruction of some sort that is keeping the blade from 'locking' in to place. Check the spring that holds the blade in place and also (carefully) the blade for small damaged areas. If possible you may be able to unscrew and reinstall either the old blade or a new one (should be in the kit that came with your serger).
If none of these measures work the blade assembly may need adjustment by a technician.

My riccar sewing machine is kind of computerized. My son punched some buttons and now the needle arm won't come down at all when you step on the foot pedal even though its obvious it can do the various...

A model # would help. Do you have a manual? You can look for the riccar website and search the manual. If its available as download, you can use the CTRL+F function to "find" words like lock, needle, or other things that can narrow it down.

Here are some other riccar sewing machine fixya posts that you might look through.

Can't find where to get a 1/4 inch pressure foot for my riccar 1570 for use in piecing quilts. Where can I purchase this from?

I looked at your machine accessories online and I think that you have a low shank, so, I think that a Singer or Brother would fit your machine just fine. JoAnn's may have one in there Viking gallery. And if it does not fit at least you can return it. Other than that, you can always call Riccar and see if they have one.

Need parts/manual for old Riccar sewing machine

Here's a manual for the 551, it should be similar enough for your machine.
If not look on for a similar model.
Find out what shank your machine is and you should be able to buy parts for it. I find ebay great for old sewing machine parts.
Hope this helps!
