A BIG thank you!!!!
See the next post after yours- I checked everything after serging a bit and, it's true the lower looper thread had moved to sit right on top of the upper looper! Much easier!
Glad my thread could help more than just me!

A tip for future thread changings in your serger: don't unthread it each time, just snip off the threads right at the spools, put the new spools of thread on, tie a knot in the corresponding threads and run it through on a scrap piece of fabric. It's the easiest way to switch threads IMO! The only thing you have to watch is when the two threads get to the needles, the knots likely won't fit through and you'll have to snip the threads and rethread the needles, but that's nothing in comparison to threading the whole machine!

Yes, I know but like I said in the OP, it was cause of broken threads that I had to figure this out. No threads to use the tie-on method with! Thanks though!
