Question about Juki Sewing Machines

My Juki 654DE's differential feed has quit working. I was using it to slightly gather a curved hemline, but it does not gather now, even when I've turned it up to 2. Any suggestions?

How to use the differential adjustment knob on the Juki MO-644D. Not seeing instruction in the manual


Found the manual here on features page http://jukihome.com/products/mo644d.html
Differntial feeding is covered on page 25, and the diagram showing location of the differential feed knob and stitch length knobs inside the cloth plate is on page 2.

So swing open the left cover (cloth plate) to access these controls.

Differential feed means you change the feeding speed of the two feed dogs so the front one feeds at a different speed to the back one. Effectively, this either streches the fabric as you seam, or pushes the fabric together as you seam. So if you want to do a rolled hem "lettuce" edge you are stretching the fabric with the differential feed to achieve this, turn the numbers up. If you are sewing a loose knit and it is "waving" then turn the diff feed down to 0.7 or so to squeeze the fabric back together.

That's basically it! Like anything on an overlocker, test sew, adjust, test sew, adjust until you are getting the right effect.

Breaking thread


there could be two things that I can think of right away, one the thread may be old, even if you brought it from the store, two, the needle is in the wrong way or it is the wrong needle .

How do I operate the differential feed? I bought


The differential feed is usually on the right side, you will see a some numbers. Their should be one that sticks out (might be red, The letter "N", "0", or a line) This is the normal setting. A larger number is going to gather the fabric and a smaller (.99 and below) is going to stretch.

Hope that helps :)

Do you have a quick threading guide for this


Could not find. Here is one for the 634 that may help - http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Juki_Sewing_machine_threading/Juki_MO_634_Threading_Diagram.htm

Raise the thread antenna and loopers to their highest position.

Set the tension controls to zero before threading.

Many sergers have the threading diagram inside the front door of the serger.

Gathering


First, try the differential feed. I think that you set it so that the setting is less than 1 to get it to feed in faster than out. If it isn't working, try a higher number.

If you can't get enough this way, the old fashioned way would be to reduce the presser foot pressure slightly and put your left index finger behind the foot, resting on the fabric to impede its progress through the machine.

I think that the differential feed should suffice.

What does the differential feed do?


Get a basic book on serging from your library. The higher the #, the feed dogs infront feed fabric in faster, keeping knits, etc from stretching. It can also gather if you go to the highest #. A slightly lower # the N can be used for slippery fabrics because it slows the front feed dogs, but be careful because it can stretch and ruin the fabric. I have only once needed the lower # for a really slippery chiffon. Start on scraps and experiemnt. It's not used very often unless you sew daily or professionally.
