Do you have the manual? My manual helped me the first time I threaded.

What seems to be the problem?

No, I don't have the manual. I have the weird little book that doesn't really give instructions and has horrible pictures.

I have never used a serger before, I tried to use the previous thread to re-thread but the threads broke, and I gave up.

Do you have a manual?

No, I don't have your machine I was just trying to trouble shoot with you. My machine has color coded dots where each thread is supposed to go. I wouldn't suppose yours does too?

Can you thread the top two needles and then work your way to the loopers?

Can you take a close up picture of the lower part of the looper mechanism? I am thinking I might be able to figure it out and draw on the picture where the thread should go. Does that make sense?
