Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines
My machine sat for a while. When I went to sew on it again, it worked, but only on one stitch setting, "01". It wouldn't allow me to change it to any other stitches. Please help. Is there a reset button or somthing that I cannot find? I can't afford to have someone repair it, so I would like to try to fix it myself. Please Help!!

If your feeddogs look like they are working properly it could be this...I have seen and corrected a few problems like this in the past. What can happen is your needlebar is stuck in the Basting position. Basting is when even though the machine is turning properly the needlebar will only go down every few revolutions. There is a small pin in the needlebar that disengages when Basting stitch is selected (by an electro-magnet). Usually these will stick from hardly ever or not using it. Old oil gummed up usually but can happen in a drop. The pin will not go back in. Possibly (probably also) the needle bar got turned ever so slightly knocking the hole for the pin slightly off so it can't go back in. In which case the needlebar has to be turned to the correct alignment. This should only be fixed by a trained tech. Everyone... use the basting feature occasionally. We have a saying about those. "Use it or lose it".

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)
It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

Found a solution to my own problem.... hope this helps someone else. Make SURE the bobbin case is seated correctly! (follow the instructions carefully). Don't put the cover back on right away after you put the bobbin case in. First check and make sure it doesn't move when you turn the hand wheel.
Also, when threading the bobbin make sure the thread passes down through the tension adjusting spring of the bobbin case.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Take the thread out, Take the needle plate out Watch as the needle comes comes down, make sure the hook is just above the eye of the the needle as it makes its pass by the scarf of the needle if not refer to my post on timing.
