Assuming this is a 4-thread serger. The thread tension setting will depend on which stitch you are making. A standard 4-thread overlock stitch would generally have the tensions set in the middle. FWIW, the tension in this setting is correct when the threads meet in the middle of the fabric. It should neither be off the edge of the fabric or so tight as to create a puckered edge.

Machine will not stitch

Turn it off, pull the thread out. Unplug it for the wall and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Turn it back on an drethread carefully. Hopefully it will work then. Good Luck!

Sewing machine stopped making the stich

Unthread the needles, rethread the loopers properly, then rethread the needles. Make sure that all four threads are pulled securely into the tensions and retry.

The loopers must always be threaded before the needles or it will not chain.

The easiest way to get your threads adjusted and learn which thread does what is to thread the machine with 4 different colors. Set your tension dials at 4,3,2,1 from left to right. This is the starting point. Sew on a test strip and look at the threads. You can then adjust the correct tension dial according to the thread color. This is a great way to get the machine set back to correct tensions as well as a learning tool to figure out what each thread looks like so you can adjust later when using all one color.

Out side needle will not stich keeps gathering up fabric.

Check to make sure the thread is between the tupper tension disc's, from your description there is no tension on that thread.
