Before all else. Turn off machine!
(1) break screws on the hook loose.
(2) tighten one back up very skightly, one you can reach when the needle bar is at its lowest position.
(3) lower needle bar to its lowest position.
(4) loosen the screw just tightened.
(5) position the tip of the hook behind the needle hole. the tip should be as close to the needle hole as possible without actually touching the needle
(6) tighten screws
(7) slowly hand turn the machine (depress the foot pedal to disengage clutch brake on motor) several revolutions to make sure the needle doesn't hit anything on the hook.
(8) if it passes this test, try on a scrap of fabric

There is a free download threading diagram for the DDL-227 here:

Loops on the bottom of the fabric direct the problem to the top thread. Rethread again and make sure the thread goes through the tension discs. Lift the foot, because this is what opens the discs. When sewing and the foot is down, the discs should be closed and thus giving the upper thread the tension it needs.

You can download a free threading guide here - http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Juki_Sewing_machine_threading/Juki_MO_644_Threading_Diagram.htm
The same site also sells manuals.
Have the thread antenna at it's highest position.
Set the tensions to zero.
Have the presser foot up while threading.
When you thread a serger for the first time, or if you are having a threading problem, use a different color thread for each guide. This can quickly indicate where the problem lies.
Once the stitch is satisfactory, change to the color you prefer - but this way is the easiest - cut the thread near the thread cone and tie off with the new thread. With the tensions at zero, slowing run the serger until the new thread appears. You will need to stop as the knots approach the needles and thread them by hand.
Do the tie-off before running out of thread and this will save a lot of time and stress.
