Question about Bernina 2500DCET
Cut all the threads above the tension disks and pull them all out. Then rethread from the very beginning making sure to thread in the Proper Order.

I had the same problem. I found if you turn the wheel three times and then put in material, it will work fine. If you try to run a long thread to see if it works, the lower looper will break. Try it with material and it will work fine.

You either have a burr on one of the loopers, or you have threaded the loopers in the wrong order. I do not have this particular serger, but with mine, if I the lower looper thread is looped above the upper one(down where they all meet), it will break. Cut your lower looper thread and re thread it making sure its above the lower looper one.

The machine stops because the sensor near the check spring(in the tension area) tells it the thread is broken or not there.. You can try to clean it out again but it's probably going to have to go in for service.

FYI, a mock or faux coverhem stitch can be done, in conjunction with your sewing machine and the serger. Takes a bit longer than using an expensive coverhem machine but looks almost the same.
1. Make sure your hem is even and serge the edge using a 3-thread overlock stitch.
2. Iron a 1-inch hem. (Fold 1-inch to the back, wrong sides together) -- Measure to keep it even.
3. Using your sewing machine, you can get a double needle that will fit inside the zig zag hole of the needle plate -- if too large it will break -- and then thread both needles using two spools of thread and stitch on the right (top) side over the ridge that you can see that is from the overcast stitch -- it will be thicker to the touch. Slowly stitch all the way around. I start on the side seam and stitch over a couple of stitches to lock it. If you have ironed a neat hem, it will come out very nice.
If you have to use a single needle, then use a quilting guide bar attachment to follow the first row of stitching to get an even second row.
This can be done on sleeves and bottom hem. Stretch the material slightly to help avoid pulled and broken stitching when wearing.
