On a normal sewing machine this usually means the threads are all snagged up in a knot in the bobbin case. Snip your threads, wriggle the fabric out, remove all snagged threads and rethread the machine. I don't know if this will work with your blind hemmer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

First get a new quality needle of the right size for your machine use a good quality hemming thread and check your tensions. If this fails to fix the problem you will probably have to have the timing checked.

I purchased mine from the Tacony Corporation. They also distribute/make babylock machines. Make sure you ask for the english version. There is really not much to it. They xeroxed and sent it to me. Google for their URL.

This sounds as though you are loosing the bearings in the spinning motor, as if it is hard to turn in manual, very tight, the motor bearings are going out, or are about out. You will need to take it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the bearings are of the oilable type, this may take care of the problem. Find the motor and see if it has oil cups on it. Use a 20 weight oil you can get at any hardware store to do this.

THe Pressure foot on my Baby Lock BL101 blind hemmer is stuck and won't go all the way down. I just got this. It is a used one. I Did move it to the top and down once but the second time it would no


without seeing the machine it's hard to tell what's wrong with it, look in the manual, check about the oiling of the machine, but if oiling doesn't help then you may have to have the machine checked, if you got the machine at a sewing machine shop, I would suggest calling them and telling them about the problem, if you got it from a individual, then it may need to be checked to see if it needs a adjustment or see if there is a broken part.
