Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines
Thread keeps locking up or breaking after threading in "tension" section of machine. Will be sewing fine and then begans to "lock up" or "draw up" on fabric...almost like when you create ruffles. I know there is some broken thread in machine and want to open up the end section for cleaning as I think this would resolve my problem but can't seem to get end section of machine off to see inside.
Wait, before you do that... check to make sure that your thread isn't wrapped around the spool spindle. I've had mine do that when I had the little thread catch on the spool pointing the wrong way.. and it caught and jerked and threw some loops... nightmare.
Since your machine is a Babylock. I do not recommend taking it apart yourself. Take it in and have a pro work on it.... while there have them check the timing and do some lubing too.

I have this same machine, it belonged to my husbands grandmother and was given to me after she passed. I let it sit for a few years before I got it out to use it, it was just too emotional. I had this same problem, and after cleaning, it worked fine. I followed the instructions in the manual for taking out the bobbin, bobbin case and metal parts that hold it in the machine. (there are pictures in the manual to help you take it out, take it apart, and put it back in... sounds hard but it's really not). I used a tooth brush to get all of the dust bunnies out (you could go over with a vacuum hose too, after the toothbrush cleaning). After I did this it worked fine. You may want to look in the manual about oiling the machine, if it's been years since it's been done, that might help to. Hope you get it working! I love this machine, it works well and is good quality. (they don't make sewing machines like they used to, the only one I'll buy is a Kenmore!)

Mmmm...., maybe NOT the solution, maybe, just a key.
I have a copy of theBaby LKock EA-605 instruction booklet in English, Germann, French and Spanish. NO ideas how it casme into my orbit, but happy to pass it on.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
Sounds like you have to take off the throat plate and clean out threads under it. Sometime they ball up and prevent the needle from going down and catching the bobbin thread. You can't see themuntil you take off the plate. Follow the directions. It is easy.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.
