What does your manual say? If the 1634 is anything like the 1600 I don't think you can disengage it. I have the book for the 1600 and there is nothing mentioned about disengaging -- only changing the blades. Some models are like that. You might join the White serger group and ask the members there.. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/white_model_sergers Someone may have an answer or a way around it.
Otherwise, all I can suggest is to call or go to a Joann's or a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine dealer and ask them. Alternatively, a sew and vac repair shop may be able to assist.

in response to all serger, no, after my babylock serger is cleaned and serviced it runs quietly. as for the brother, it's possible thats normal, try contacting a repair shop in your area and tell them about the serger and see what they say. it's possible that the serger may need some type of adjustment or a part may have broken .
Sounds like your blades are either dull, misaligned, disengaged or broken. Examine your serger book for how to re-engage the blades. If they are engaged, make sure they are aligned correctly. If that still doesn't help check for damage.
It should just cut. Don't know too much about this machine as I'm new owner, but from what I can gather, either you need a new blade, or the upper knife is disengaged. The metal knob inside the threading area should be turned downwards, engaging the upper knife. The upper knife doesn't usually need replacing unless damaged, apparently. Hope this helps somewhat.
Sometimes the blades need to be adjusted. Lower them all the way manually to the bottom. The cutters if you look on the side should meet. If they don't' meet or if there is a small space then the upper cutter needs to be lowered.
There are screws that hold this in place. You might need a man to help since the screws on my machine are very tight!
