All of sudden my overlocker isn't cutting the edge...

Yesterday I gave my Brother 3034D a quick clean out after I finished using it.  I did fiddle with the upper knife, just seeing how to retract it and put it back, and pulled out the stitch finger thingy and put that back.  Today, it won't cut the edges  :(
I've fiddled again and all bits seem to be seated ok, so now I'm stuck.  I was about to order new upper and lower blades, but thought I'd ask you knowledgeable people if you have any ideas before I blow £44.  And if any one has the 3034 could they possibly take a piccy of the knife's position?

Ok. panic over, I have no idea why, but it's working again!  A bit more fiddling, and some more fluff removing and hey presto!

That's good. It was probably having a huff after being fiddled with.
