Question about Baby Lock Esante
MAKE SURE you are using the correct SIZE bobbin. Some of the older plastic bobbins don't swap around in the newer machines & just because they LOOK the same doesn't mean they are. If you are absolutely POSITIVE you are using the right size bobbin (mark it w/ a permanent marker if you have to, to keep track of it), check & double check you are putting the bobbin in the case in the right direction & make sure there aren't any loose threads anywhere in the area where the bobbin sits... be sure all little dust bunnies are removed. I know it sounds redundant but get your book out & be POSITIVE you are threading thru all the thread paths in the right direction. My Babylock is supremely **** when it comes to putting the shuttle back in after I've cleaned the bobbin area & if I don't get it back exactly where it supposed to go, it won't sew right. I always have to get my book back & check it out again step by step. I have it do crazy stuff just because there was a little tail hanging out where the bobbin started to wind that I didn't cut off close enough.

Hi and welcome to FixYa! I'm the expert that has chosen your issue to fix. Here's what I think:
This sounds like a bent or burred needle. Embroidery takes a toll on the needle and typically, they will only last for about 8 hours of use in straight stitch machine. Put a fresh needle in and see if this fixes the problem.
