 Shocked I have  a toddler who is keeping me up at night and my brain is not functioning properly. Well said toddler messed with my serger. Now I've had mine for 7 years and I set the tension ages ago and suddenly after rethreading my serger after my kiddo messed with it I am having the issue where my threads are showing see the picture for reference. That means my tension is off right? Its too tight or too loose? Thanks in advance.

I think it's too loose, but I wouldn't swear to it.  I'd just start moving dials, but if you don't want to go that route most manufacturers have the owner manuals online.  Mine has guidelines for different fabrics in it, and while I still have to tweak them a bit they're good starting places.  Good luck!
