Question about Baby Lock BL1556
I have a babylock sewing machine with a one step buttonholer but the threads keep jamming and i don't have the manual for it. is there any specific way to thread it or is there anything wrong with it? i have tons of buttonholes to do for school projects and its a hassle to try to do them all on the school machines. thanks so much

If you remove the cover on the upper left portion of the machine, while looking from the left to the right.....Above the BH lever area, you will see a round cam with a post through the middle. Rotate the round can ( with fingers on it), and try again. This will change the angle position on the lever, and hopefully correct your problem. You may have to go a couple of clicks in either direction.

You probably are in need of a new bobbin case they are plastic and oif you have broken a needle lately it may have gouged the case and the top thread is getting caught and bunching up underneath. Visit www.stevessewandvac.com you can contact them and have a bobbin case sent to you.

a vidio is here that will show you the route to follow for your automatic threading to work. You may need to watch it a few times as it is demonstrated very quickly near the begining only once.

I found that the tension setting of 1 worked. The main problem was the machine had thread wound around behind the bobbin. I had to take the plates that are under the foot out, clean out the thread, oil the machine and use a spool of thread that had more weight than the little spool I was trying to use.

Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

As I was required to pay for your advise which may not have worked anyway I opted to take my machine to be serviced. Thank you
