If the handwheel won't turn, i'd double check nothing is still stuck. also, make sure you didn't half disengage the blade as they have several positions ( so you can disengage it for rolled hem etc) If you can't find anything I'm sorry to say something may have been damaged when the fabric got caught.

Tension to loose and missing stitches


SKIPPED STITCHES ON A SERGER
1. Is the needle bent or worn--replace
2. Is the needle inserted correctly into the needle holder--check needle
3. Is the Serger threaded correctly--rethread
4. Is the presser foot pressure right for the fabric--adjust

use a scrap piece of fabric to sew on as you adjust the tension
when the tension is to loose adjust one number higher till stitch
looks good

here's 2 links for a manual one is a hardcopy & the other is a
pdf downloadable--one is a different price from the other

My serger keeps rolling the edge as I serge. I've tried to make several adjustments. Where do you get instruction manuals. Is it online?


Possibly you need to adjust the knife. It sounds like the knife is positioned too far to the right which is causing the cut fabric to extend further than the edge of the stitching. The thread chain is probably so tight against the edge of the fabric that it is folding it over.Move the knife a little to the left and try it again. If the thread chain is hanging past the cut fabric then the knife was moved too far to the left.

Letture leaf edging


From "Serge With Confidence" by Nancy Zieman:

Set the machine up for a 3-thread rolled edge. Normal width; length 1 - 2.

Use Woolly Nylon in the loopers & regular thread in the needle.

Lock or disengage the cutting blade.

Guide fabric along the right edge of the presser foot.

Stretch and equal amount from fron to back while serging.

Lower the differential feed, if available to about 0.6.

Serge at a slow to moderate speed.

Practice with scraps first.

After serging, gently stretch & release the fabric edge after serging.

I BOUGHT A USED JAMONE SERGER MY LOCK 634D . I DON'T HAVE AN USERS MANUAL. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO THREAD IT


Here is a manual - http://ifixmachines.com/Janome-Model-634D/View-all-products.html

The thread guide should be inside the door.

Lift the antenna and presser foot. Turn the tensions to zero, if possible.

Turn the handwheel so the upper looper is at the highest point - there may be a mark on the side of the serger to align with a mark on the handwheel.

Begin threading from the right to the left, beginning with the lower looper.

MyLock 634D won't serge


Check that your lower looper is actually threaded and not tangled with the upper looper (needle thread) when it moves. I wish they'd include pictures in the manual how to lay the thread.

Serger


With the door open, the needle plate removed and no threads in the machine, slowly turn by hand one or two revolutions & take a close look at the motion of the loopers and the needle/s, are they colliding, or is the needle becoming jammed by the black guard surrounding the lower looper ?

Ensure there are no threads or fabric debris jammed anywhere.

If it is "new" and under warantee, it would be worth a call to the dealer asking for their advice and see if they will take a look at it for you........arrange to meet with the technician if possible.
