Baby lock quilt & craft model BL2300K. I received this from mother in law, no manual. Does any one know where the oil locations are so I can oil. Starting to make noise needs oil, thank you, robert


As a computerized machine, it is probable that there is very little (if any) oiling required. You can check with your local Baby Lock dealer's technician for oiling instructions and a manual for your machine. (Oiling incorrectly could permanently damage the machine.)

I was unable to locate a manual for your machine, but did find this web site:

A lot of newer computerized machines do not require oiling. Oiling improperly could damage the machine. You should probably contact a Baby Lock technician before attempting to oil your machine.

How and where to oil my baby lock sewing machine?


Difficult to advise without a model number.

The owner's manual should have cleaning and oiling instructions (maintenance section).

If that doesn't help, you may want to contact Baby Lock support or a dealer for advice.

Baby lock serger motor slows down after sewing 20 minutes. Why?


Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years usually have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance by a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. So a Baby Lock can sew, then temporarily be sluggish then later slow till sluggish; and at worst, seem to be doing everything right BUT not advancing the cloth -- that's when the worst damage is done and professional repair is needed. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $70 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
Been there, done that.

Do i need to oil my baby lock sewing machine?? Quiter's choice.


I cannot find a manual for this machine except at sew4less.com and the price is $14.95.

Contact Babylock to see if they will provide you with a download of the manual - http://www.babylock.com/contact-us/index.asp

If this is a mechanical machine, use sewing machine oil and the shuttle may be the only place it will need to be oil.

Baby Lock.com says you have to take it in to a dealer, as oiling requires removal of covers that would void the warranty.
