Question about Baby Lock Eclipse Serger
I own a Baby Lock serger, model#BLSE200(N) and I really haven't used it for a long time but when I uncovered it to use today...it seems like the feed dogs won't advance the fabric. I have it threaded correctly and that's working, but the fabric doesn't advance on it's own. If I pull it thru, it works but not alone. The last time it was used was by my daughter about 3 yrs ago. I have tried adjusting tension buttons but nothing is solving the problem. Any advice??
I use my BLSE200 all the time and ran into the same problem just last week. After pulling out my hair in frustration, I finally realized it had to do with the stitch length. Something wasn't connecting after I adjusted the stitch length, so when I re-set the stitch length, it popped things back into alignment and the feed dogs started working again. *whew* Hope that helps!

2. Are the knife blades sharp?
3. Are the knife blades clean of lint?
4. ls the presser foot properly adjusted?
5. Are the feed dogs and presser foot free of lint?
6. Are the knives properly set and is the upper knife against the lower knife?

Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years usually have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance bu a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $79 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
