It could be that your bobbin case popped out of position. Try removing and resetting it.
It could be that you have no upper tension, either lint in the tension discs or upper thread is mis-threaded and did not get down into the tension discs (make sure lifter lever is up when threading so the discs are open).
good luck!

It says check for broken thread and the thread isn't broken


Pull both the top thread and the lower thread bobbin off. Check if there is thread caught in anywhere along the running mechanism, especially in the lower bobbin area. If there is no thread caught make sure the tension on the thread is not to tight.

Babylock Esante stopped. Just makes loud noise but won't move even manually.


You probably have a jam. Start digging under the bobbin area.

If you get it all cleaned up under there... and it still won't move. Time for service by a pro. Could be something horrid like a bent shaft.

Good luck

I have a 10 yr. old Baby Lock Esante that when trying to fill a bobbin, I get this error message: Safety device has operated. Check if thread is tangled or if needle is bent, then the machine stops. Does...


I would suggest rethreading the machine to make sure the thread is not caught somewhere, & even change the needle or check to make sure the needle is in correctly & pushed all the way up in the needle holder
& if that doens't help then take it back to the repair shop & tell them about the problem

I have an Esante ESe2 and am having trouble with the upper thread breaking. I have checked bobbin case for fuzz and thread, re-wound the bobbin, re-threaded everything and nothing helps! Please help me...


Open the top part of the machine. My mom just bought one and it had lots of thread inthe thread path of the thread on top. You have to open up the area that the thread runs thru. It solved her problem of thread breaking. She found lots of thread inside.

Bobbin problems!


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.

Not picking up the Bobbin thread


I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
