Babylock BL4-428 repair manual

Upper blade broke when I started to sew after machine was unused for only a few months. I had used it regularly for about 3-4 years then stored a few months. Before that it had been stored for probably nearly a decade and worked like a charm right away. repair person said that the lower blade was not in position by maybe 1/8 inch, and it could not be fixed. seems odd to me, would love to get it back to working again, don't like to throw things out. any fix ideas or manual available? thanks!!

SOURCE: machine jams after a few stitches

Take a few stitches and look for where the thread is hanging as the loop slides over the bobbin case. If there is a rough spot causing it to hang, smooth it out with very fine steel wool make certain to remove all remains of the steel wool when you are finished. If the thread is catching between the bobbin case and some other surface, the clearance between the surfaces needs to be set and you should take it to a qualified repairman.

SOURCE: Top tread bird nesting.

When you say top thread nesting, I supose you mean that the thread is messed up at the top of the needle plate.
If so,
1st, either your bobbin thread is completely loose, or the bobbin thread is not held under the bobbin case spring,
or lint has been accumulated under the bobbin case spring.
2nd, the top thread is very tight,

or both.

Your problem is probably the stitch length adjustment cam (located on the left side of the machine) To fix this problem you will need to remove the small plastic cap (with red arrow) covering the screw securing the cam. It is usually also necessary to remove the connecting rod/sleeve that the cam rides in. Once both of these parts have been removed, you will need to carefully separate them and resurface the inside of the sleeve. This can be done with a very fine (500grit or higher) emery paper. Once the cam fits inside the sleeve without binding, reassemble using sewing machine oil or lithium grease and adjust feed dog timing.

How do I oil my babylock serger


That depends on the model. The Babylock Triumph (BLETS8) does not get oiled by the user. However, the Babylock Diana (BL480A) needs to be oiled at 4 different points. See the picture on page 63 (page 64 of the PDF) of the manual. Babylock has the manual here: https://babylock.com/resources/5148/download . Current Babylock sewing machine and serger model manuals are available here: https://babylock.com/support/machine-support .

Please add a comment with your serger model. I'll try to find the oiling diagram, if the machine needs regular lubrication. Do not oil any sewing/serger machine unless the manual recommends that as part of the maintenance of the machine. Some Babylock sewing machine dealers will provide you with the manual, if it is available for a small fee. The Babylock serger that I have access to didn't come with a manual. However, we were able to get one from the dealer.

I hope this helps.

I need owners instruction manual for baby lock companion 1550 sewing machine.pls help where can i download free manual.


You can check with a Baby Lock dealer an online sewing machine parts vendor, or even eBay. However, it may be difficult to find a manual for your machine due to its age and perhaps even less chance of success for finding a free manual.

Hi. Do somebody know the part number of lower looper holder I bought the ea 605 babylock and do not have it. Thanks for help.


If you need a replacement blade, they can be found on many internet web sites:

Baby Lock Serger Blades Knives

If you need a part that holds the knife, you could probably contact or go to a sewing repair shop or a Babylock dealer.

Babylock BL4-428 Serger


I think I would get another opinion. Sometimes you run across lazy technicians or those who would like to talk you into buying a new machine. Of course, if your machine is older, it could be difficult to locate replacement parts, but getting that info from another technician will confirm the first opinion.

If my machine is not cutting right do I need to replace both blades


not necesarily, can you see a knick in either of the two blades? use a magnifying glass and see if you can see any damage first.

Then try changing the fixed bottom blade only first, you may have got a replacment top blade in your accessory bag new with the machine.

The blades themselves are very high grade steel just like scissor blade so should last for quite a long time, provided they don't come into contact with a pin.

You can buy the bottom blade for your machine here http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/lower-knife-babylock-60544.aspx along with the top blade and other spares.

Also, remember to clean the blades of lint regularly and give them a wipe with a cloth moistened with a little clear sewing machine oil from time to time.
