It's possible that there is a problem with the computer part of the
machine and needs to be checked.

SOURCE: Instructions for threading Baby lock eclipse BLE1LX for 2 thread sergering

I have just learned this :)
Either needle thread may be engaged for 2-thread serging.
1. Open the front cover and cutting blade cover, cut the upper looper thread just above the threading guide ( this is plate that has two holes for the threads) Raise the presser foot and pull out the clipped thread from under the foot. Remove upper thread from the machine (or you can leave the cone thread on, it doesn't matter).
2. Rotate the handwheel to bring the upper looper to its lowest position.
3. Rotate the subsidiary looper up and to the left, then slip the end into the upper looper thread eye from backside.(this sounds complicated, yes? but it is very simple : the looper has a counter part that is spring-locked to move from left to right and right to left. This is the little claw-looking part of the looper that when in the postion to serg with four threads is to the right side of the looper. It looks like a scorpion's tale. If you can't figure which part it is, use your finger to probe the looper and you'll feel it give a little. This part needs to be moved to the left - it will not slide over, but swing up and over and down, like an arch. Then, where the thread comes out of the looper is where you want the little claw-like part to hook into.)
4. Close the covers. Decrease the needel tension - this depends on what the stitch length is. Stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 3.0 = L needle n/a, R needle 1; upper looper n/a, lower looper 5
stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 5.0 = L needle 0, R needle n/a, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5

Those are for a flatlock stitch - for a 2-thread rolled edge :
Stitch length: 0.5, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4.5, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5
Stitch lenght: 1.0, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4, upper lopper n/a, lower looper 3.0

SOURCE: Baby Lock Evolve wire Looper threading tool

You have to get the replacement wires from a Babylock dealer, I did too then after sticker shock at the price of that wire I learned to make a thread cradle and use that to thread difficult threads no. Take about 24 inches of regular sewing thread and fold it in half, put the open ends (together, same legnth) into the jet air port and hold onto the loop end, press the jet air threader and it will thread the machine, insert the thread you want to use into the loop you have in your hand and pull it thru the machine using the ends of the thread you put thru the machine, sounds harder than it is and works all the time. No more spending $8 on replacement wires. You can use this method for all the jet air sergers.

WHY??!! *Check if thread is entangled. Check if needle is bent. So far as I can tell everything is fine, used new bobbin, new needle, still getting error. How do I know if the motor has become locked


Time to take it in and have the repair tech service & clean upper tension assembly. When you clip/ change threads be sure not to pull the thread back out of tension assembly. Snip thread at spool, raise foot to release tension and then pull the short thread out from the needle. The Automatic tension is very delicate and pulling thread out backwards can cause thread/lint build up and problems like your having. Sal the Sewing Gal

It doesn't cry when the bobbin is out


the thread jam could have done something to a sensor or could
have caused a problem with the computer motherboard.

I would suggest rethreading the machine to make sure the thread is not caught somewhere, & even change the needle or check to make sure the needle is in correctly & pushed all the way up in the needle holder
& if that doens't help then take it back to the repair shop & tell them about the problem

Left needle on baby lock serger "imagine" skips


Change needles if they have done a few hours. Ales use ballpoint if seaming stretch fabrics. Also you can get EL 705 needles, which have a longer scarf (groove at back) which helps with the loopers catching the needle thread. Or SUK is the stretch type with this longer scarf Also if you are using cheaper thread cones, try a better quality with smoother finish and consistent weight, this will help too. However if this doesn't resolve issue, your looper timing might need adjustment.

hi, when the balance wheel is difficult to turn, the machine is letting you know there's a problem, it may only be minor but minor problems are easier to fix than big problem & less costly
since it's a baby lock esante I would really suggest that the machine needs to be checked by a repair technican, that can give the machine the check up it needs

Bottom threader. Thread does not go to top. Stops. Do I need to more pumping? I do it 3-4 times now.


These machines have to have the threader tubes engaged. Do you have them set for threading? If it still doesn't thread you have to use the wire threader that was provided with the machine when you bought it. It might be in the storage compartment under the lower looper spool pin.
