SOURCE: Machine not sewing
Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:
Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.
If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.
Post an update and we'll get this right.

SOURCE: The serger is not sewing
The machine was threaded incorrectly at first, but after changing the needle I was threading it correctly. The problem ended up being the needle depth. When I inserted the new needle, I did not have pushed up into it's slot quite far enough. I pushed it up all the way and retightened the screw. Now it is serging like a dream!

You need to adjust the tension for your threads. Use scraps to test sew as you adjust the individual threads to bring them into proper balance. Your manual will tell you how to do this.
