Question about Yamata CM-500
SOURCE: Yamata FY7568 Machine not sewing
Make sure the correct needle is installed on the machine. Domestic needles will have one flat and one rounded side on the shaft. Make sure the flat side of the needle is on the back and the groove on the needle also being to the back.
You might also want to make sure the tip of the needle is not broken.
Other than that, your machine could be out of timing.

You can find some instructions on a narrow double hem at http://www.sewjanetmoville.co.uk/content/learning/viewArticle.asp?lcArticleCategoryID=0&lcArticleID=3&pgid=learningCentre. Instead of machine sewing it, use a hand slip stitch as seen here: http://www.hutchal.clara.net/curtains/sewguide.htm.
You can find more info on these techniques at http://www.repair-home.com/how_to_sew_repairs.html
Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more info.

SOURCE: Placing material for rolled hem
Usually what is done as far as I do it, is to sew a straight stitch at 45 degrees to the corner that you are going to hem and use the threads to guide the material into the hemmer foot. Once the presser foot is lowered you hold onto these threads to guide the material in a straight line while at the same time holding your fabric slightly elevated in your right hand so that you allow the hemmer to be just full at all times. After you complete your hem remove your 45 degree helper threads. Your fabric must also be cut very straight or you will not get good results with the hemmer. This foot takes practice to master...once you know how to use it, you will never look back! There are other methods to using this foot that other people prefer, but for me this one works the best.

Re-thread the machine and make sure that the needle is in properly. The tension would not cause the thread to break.
If it is not working, what is the machine doing? Try re-threading the machine again, check the needle to make sure that it is in correctly. There are no set numbers for tension- it is a feel, push, pull. If you could e-mail me back with a better description of what the machine is doing or not doing,
