White super lock 534 Need Help

I can't figure out how to disengage the cutter blades to just overlock, not cut.
I haven't had the machine long and the manual makes no reference how to do this.
Can someone help?

The manual explains how to disengage the upper cutter on page 7:

However, the whole point of having a cutter blade on a serger is  
cleanly to cut  excess fabric from the edge so that the threads wrap  
around the edge.   Otherwise you will jam up your serger with excess  
fabric.

There are a few techniques where you would want the blades  
disengaged (i.e. faux flatlock

), are you doing one of  
them?

After looking in the parts book and users manual I do not believe on that  
model you can disengage the knives--

Ron, I bow to your superior knowledge. Apparently the manual I  
discovered in my search was in error.  Thanks again for  
participating here!
