Question about Baby Lock Esante
Did you ever get a reply to your problem? I too am having that same problem with my feed dog not moving the material and sewing in one place. What did
you do to fix the problem?
I listened to all that...and none of it worked...so I took the plate off and gave it a good clean. Still nothing. If your machine's a bit old like mine or tends to get stuck...physically lift up the feed dog with your fingernail or a flat screw driver or something (once the plate is off), then push the feed dog lever across and release the feed dog. It should hold in place if nothing else has worked...woo!!! :)

Here are some common reasons that the fabric won't feed:
1. Stitch length is set to zero, or machine is in button hole setting
2. Feed dogs are dropped (free motion setting)
3. Broken gears (typically in old singers)
4. Presser bar not coming down - may be bound up.
5. Lots of lint under the needle plate (in between the feed dogs) preventing feed dogs from raising.
Hope this helps.

Model ese2 babylock, used button whole features , when i went back to regular sewing my material would not feed . the switch to activate dog feed is to the left , the dog feed goes up . I would like to know what is the propper gap between dog feed and pressure foot when the dog feed is full up. Can i adjust this. A tech said it would cost $250 dollars to take off the head. appreciate your help.
