I was in a similar position (but had the manual). The manual isn't as complete as I'd like. Anyway, what finally got mine working were the following:
1. turn all tensions to zero before putting thread through them
2. thread the upper looper, then lower looper, then needles.
3. when threading the lower looper (mine kept pulling out), after passing the thread through the looper eye, it needs to go pretty much straight up, not wrapping around anything else - other thread, for example. Mine was at one point trying to wrap itself around a post.
4.when everything is all threaded up, make sure all threads are under the foot *and* pulled to the left (even though the manual says pull to the back). Then chain off without fabric, turning the handwheel by hand to make sure loops are forming. If so, adjust tensions to where you think they should be (mine are currently all between 2 and 5), and add fabric. Then tweak as needed.

For me, this was a lot of trial & error, hair-pulling, and getting tips 1, 2, and 4. I figured out #3 on my own, with much swearing along the way. Good luck!

Its a different model, but most sergers thread the same way.

Make sure that the presser foot dial (the silver "knob") on top of the machine is not too loose. You can adjust this w/ a nickel; tighten it all the way down & then loosen about 4 full rotations for cotton fabrics. Also make sure the Differentail feed lever is on "N". You can order a book from your local Baby Lock dealership for all models. Good Luck.

Please, I need an instruction manual for a Babylock BL4-428D serger. Has to be the D so I can find out how to operate the differential feed...Thanks to anyone who can help


Google your machine's make and model. There are tons of places online to get a manual, Ebay has physical manuals, or you can download a e version.

I have forgotten the settings to set the differential feed on my babylock 5380E


The differntial feed is usually set on N. If you move the lever up, you gather. If you move it down, the fabric will lettuce. These things happen because there are two sets of feed dogs feeding at different rates.

I require operating instructions as to what is requiered for flat bed stitching?


I can share the information for my BabyLock Imagine in hopes that it will help you.

There are options of 2 or three threads.

For the 2 thread the serger must have a 2-thread converter- aka, auxiliary looper or subsidiary looper.

This is a spring type mechanism that fits in a small hole at the top of the upper looper. It 'tricks' the upper looper into thinking it is threaded. It must be engaged by connecting to a small hole in the upper looper

Set up the serger for a 2 or 3 thread right or left needle.

Stitch width - wide if you are using the left needle and normal if for the right needle; length 1 - 3mm.

Needle tension loosened and looper tension normal.

Disengage the cutting blade..

Set the differential feed at normal.

Hope this will help.

We were just given a babylock serger and the fabric won't advance. The dogs don't seem to be moving.


Depends on the model but some machines have a problem that the feed regulator cam has become loose (2 set screws) and will not advance the material. A good Babylock dealer will be able to diagnose quick.
