Changing a serger needle

Well I actually have an old singer quantumlock 5 serger. I have no manual and for the life of me I can not figure out how to change the needle. I have unscrewed every screw I found around the needle. Could you please help me ?

SOURCE: I have an older model

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and see if they can sell you that part. I am sure that they can because they do not change the parts that much on the machines. Good luck

Singer QuantumLock 14T967DC has been sitting for a few years in storage. Turns on, but hums and won't move when pressing the peddle. Also, cannot turn handwheel. It's stuck. Any ideas?

It appears to be a mechanical machine.

If it has been setting without use or maintenance for several years, the oil has probably thickened and is preventing things from moving. Consult your owner's manual, page 64, clean and use fresh oil recommended by the manufacturer--apply 1-2 drops of oil each place. There are internal spots that should probably be oiled as well, which you may want your repairman to service. A hot handheld hairdryer directed into the internal mechanics of a sewing machine will help loosen old oil, so it may work on a serger too. Or, you can set the serger near a heat source, ie radiator or heater (not TOO close) for a period of time to give it time to warm up.
