What machine? Sounds like it is threaded wrong or the bobbin tension needs adjusted.

Sewing backwards


try adjusting the top thread tension for the loops
try changing the needle
and see if that help any if not then take the machine back and
tell them what the machine is doing
if the machine was adjusted, then they should have checked the
stitches to make sure that the stitches were normal both forward
and backwards.

It could be a mechanical problem but before you do more first check your UPPER tension. If the upper thread tension is too loose and the bobbin tension is tight you can get looping on the underside of the stitch. So pull on the upper thread and feel if there's tension there. You can try to increase the upper tension and see if that helps.

It sounds as though the problem is with the tension in the bobbin. Check to make sure the thread is pulled through the tensioner on the bobbin case, if it is check and adjust the tension on the case.

Bought used--trying it out---top stitching is


Check to make sure that the thread running between the tension disks. A quick check is to lower the presser foot and then pull on the top thread. If you do not feel any tension, then it may not be ran in between the disks. Also, check to see if your bobbin is inserted correctly going counter-clockwise. This can cause the "loose" loops and thread jams in the bobbin casing.

I have a white superlock 228 jaguar serger problems with right needle


Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.

Loop/lock on reverse of fabric


Check the tension on the bobbin in the base - there is a small screw on the bobbin that sets it's tension.
