the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.
they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.
tnx 4 using fixya,

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: rolled hem on chiffon
Turn under the edge just about 1/4" and do a rolled edge then you can go back and trim off any of the folded under fabric that may show. Also, this keeps the hem from pulling away so easily. You may also try putting some water soluble stabilizer under the fabric before you serge.

There could be several reasons due to which the thread keeps bunching up underneath.
It may be due to tangling of upper thread. Remove the thread completely from the machine, use correct size spool cap for the size of the thread spool, re-thread the machine, now remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.
You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.
Please rate the solution as FixYa and revert for any clarification.

Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)
Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)
