Set the machine to its longest stitch length, put it in the warmest room in your house and in the sun if possible. If the stitch gets longer when the machine is warm it needs to be cleaned and lubed so that the stitch length mechanism moves freely.
If the lube in the machine is getting old or is nonexistent, the reverse button may be depressed and appear to return to its original position, when released, but the mechanism inside the machine only returns part of the way causing the length to be shorter than normal. Heat often masks this problem allowing the mechanism to move.

SOURCE: Proper Settings
A good standard tension setting is usually around 4.5.
If you find it to be looping on the bottom, raise your top tension. If it's pulling bobbing thread to the top, lower your top tension.
For straight stitch, your stitch width should be set to zero, although on some machines (and I believe your Baby Lock to be one of them,) the stitch width setting will change your needle position.
Stitch length is simply a matter of preference.

Use the longest stitch length and loosen top tension,. Practice on a piece of scrap material until you are satisfied with the results. Good luck
