Babylock ese needle position won't move from start position

I was sewing with the needle position set at 4. When I finished a row of stitching, I cut the thread and repositioned the fabric and lowered the presser foot to begin sewing again when I noticed was now at the far left side.  I tried moving the needle from the menu for the width back to 4. The machine made the sound as if it were moving but the needle did not move. I then turned the machine off for about a minute and turned it back on and tried again....I got the same sound as I tried to move the needle by changing the width to 4 again but the needle didn't move.

SOURCE: Babylock seger machine keep breaking the left side needle.

Try rethreading the machine, and make sure the thread is not wrapped around anything. Then check the tension for the needles. Run a few inches of chainstich off slowly, while watching the thread and loopers make the loops over the finger. Your threads may be in the wrong position, or underneath the wrong parts to start.

How do I cast off in knitting?


Take a needle several sizes larger than the ones you have used for the knitting - so the loops will be larger and the edge looser, knit the first two stitches onto the larger needle then use the tip of the other needle to lift the first stitch over the second one and right off the needle, so it is looped over the second stitch, but is no longer on the needle.
Knit another stitch and repeat the lifting over. I f you are casting off all the stitches continue to the end of the row and then cut the yarn, pass the end of the yarn through the last stitch and draw it up.
If you are only casting off part of the row then move the last stitch onto the right size needle and continue knitting on the stitches left in the row.

Troubleshooting/Frequently Asked Questions
Please click on any question below to display the corresponding answer.

Basic Tips for All

  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Directions for making a buttonhole with an Elna SU


A transcript from the Elna SU manual reads as follows, and the manual can be viewed on line at http://sewingonline.co.uk/instructions/elnasp/

First make a few trial runs with a scrap of material exactly as the buttonhole will be stitched, with the machine adjusted as you intend to use it.
1. Use the embroidery and buttonhole foot. It can be chnged without a screwdriver by using the fixation screw.- With the stitch width knob at "0", turn the selector to zigzag "1".
2. De-center the needle to the left.
3. Set the stitch width knob at 2, with the solid mark on top.
4. Set the stitch length dial between 1/2 and 1/4.
5. a) Mark the desired length on the material.
b) Sew the first side of the buttonhole. Stop with the needle in the material and the mark (right).
c) Raise the foot and pivot the material round the needle. Lower the foot and raise the needle.
6. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Sew a few stitches. Raise the needle.
7. a) Set the stitch width knob at 2.
b) Sew the second side and stop just short of the length of the first. Raise the needle.
8. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Finish off the buttonhole by sewing a few stitches. Raise the needle.
9. a) Set the stitch width knob at "0".
b) Sew a few stitches to fasten the threads, holding the material back by hand.
10. Open with the buttonhole knife, which you will find in the accessory box.

Babylock serger 5260d


Make sure the loopers underneath are not broken. Are the needles
put in correct? One is suppose to be down and little more than the other- if you have them the same length that is your problem-
check your book

I have re-threaded, changed needles, adjusted the differential and cutting width but cannot sew a single seam without the stitches skipping, sometimes several in a row and sometimes only one.


SKIPPED STITCHES ON A SERGER

1. Is the needle bent or worn--replace

2. Is the needle inserted correctly into the needle holder--check needle

3. Is the Serger threaded correctly--rethread

4. Is the presser foot pressure right for the fabric--adjust
5. are the needles the correct ones for the serger
6. Possible timing problem--need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

How do you position the needle/ with which lever or dial? location?


Your model doesn't have a specific needle position adjustment. But you could try this - set it to the shell stitch or lingerie stitch on the stitch selector but leave the stitch width setting on zero, this may move the needle to the left most position with any luck.

Other possibility is to put it in a step of the buttonhole sequence, but again leave stitch width on zero and see if this moves the needle bar to the right or left for you.

If it was sewing correctly BEFORE the needle break...why did the needle break in the first place?...and what fixes did you make?
If it sewed properly...what changed?

Cut your upper thread close to the spool...make sure the presser foot is raised and pull the cut off thread section through/out of the machine from the needle area (sewing direction...do not pull the thread backwards!)

Clean out the bobbin area...remove any traces of lint or pieces of thread...look for any broken off needle pieces... brush the bobbin area out....then add a drop of sewing machine oil (but only if your manual says to oil that area).

Remove the needle plate to expose the feed dogs...brush/clean out that area too and add a drop of sewing machine oil...then secure the needle plate back on.
Replace the needle...do it again...yup...some needles arrive bad from the factory. Make sure the needle is inserted and positioned properly. Then thread the machine WITH the presser foot in raised position. (The thread needs to get seated into the upper tensions.)
..with the.presser foot down...thread the new needle.
Oh...and use the correct needle for the thread. (a universal 80/12 is standard).
Thread can cause issues too. Try a different bobbin, or maybe a different spool of thread to see if that makes a difference.

Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight


It sounds like it is making a blind stitch, does it look something like this? -----v-----v-----v-----v-----v If so it might be on the blind stitch setting instead of the straight stitch! ;-)
