I found that the tension setting of 1 worked. The main problem was the machine had thread wound around behind the bobbin. I had to take the plates that are under the foot out, clean out the thread, oil the machine and use a spool of thread that had more weight than the little spool I was trying to use.

My Babylock sewing machine has the lower thread to tight and the upper thread looks great. how do I fix that


You may need to tighten the bobbin tension. Sometimes, if you slightly tighten the upper tension, it will bring the bobbin thread up further into the fabric.

What are the correct top & bottom tensions for this machine?


Both tensions are preset at the factory. Normally, the bobbin tension is the last one to adjust. Most often tension adjustments are made to the top thread. The factory standard setting for the upper thread is the midway point between the high & low numbers, however, each machine is different and may need slight readjustment.

The tensions are correct when both, the upper and bobbin, threads meet in the middle of the fabric. Tension is not static. Differing fabric weights, thread, or needle sizes may necessitate a change to tension. Lighter weight fabrics like chiffon will require a different tension setting than heavy fabrics like denim. Always test first on scraps of the fabric you plan to sew. Get the tension set the way you want it before you begin sewing your project.

Sounds like you have no tension on the upper thread. Rethread the top thread, make sure you have the pressure foot raised, and have your tension around 5. Don't forget to lower the pressure foot before you began to sew.

I need a replacement manual for Babylock Xscape BL66


You will need to contact a BL dealer to order a manual, if any are available. This model has been replaced.

There is a threading guide in on the inside of the door on the front of the serger.

Raise the presser foot and set the tension controls to zero.

Turn the handwheel until the upper looper (curved looper) is at it's highest point - there may be a mark on the side of the serger and handwheel for aligning to this point.

Thread the upper looper first, then the lower looper, then the needles.

Pull the threads under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 4 - 6 setting, lower the presser foot and stitch a chain before serging fabric.

You may be able to find a free manual download at the Brother website for a similar product.

On a babylock elegante the bobbin thread shows,


Have you reset the tensions for this machine, look in your manual and follow directions. If this is an Elegante there is also a set of instructions on the machine. On the LCD screen there is a picture of a sewing machine with a question mark, touch it, find Troubleshooting and touch that then find the problem you are having and read. If this does not help take it to a Brother dealer and have it reset so as to keep you machine in good running order.

Bottom thread is looping.


If the thread is looping on the bottom, then your problem is on the top. Pull the thread out of the needle and and put the presser foot down. If the thread pulls thru easily, then you need to rethread your machine making sure the thread is thru the top tension wheel correctly.

Rule of thumb::
Loops on the bottom, Problem on the top
Loops on the top, problem on the bottom.
