Take it back to where you had it repaired and ask the dealer to make it work under his warranty. Maybe he can tell you exactly what's wrong with your machine. Usually it is a pressure problem or the feed dogs are filled with lint or they don't rise high enough above the needle plate to work. Take off the needle plate and check them.

SOURCE: Instructions for threading Baby lock eclipse BLE1LX for 2 thread sergering

I have just learned this :)
Either needle thread may be engaged for 2-thread serging.
1. Open the front cover and cutting blade cover, cut the upper looper thread just above the threading guide ( this is plate that has two holes for the threads) Raise the presser foot and pull out the clipped thread from under the foot. Remove upper thread from the machine (or you can leave the cone thread on, it doesn't matter).
2. Rotate the handwheel to bring the upper looper to its lowest position.
3. Rotate the subsidiary looper up and to the left, then slip the end into the upper looper thread eye from backside.(this sounds complicated, yes? but it is very simple : the looper has a counter part that is spring-locked to move from left to right and right to left. This is the little claw-looking part of the looper that when in the postion to serg with four threads is to the right side of the looper. It looks like a scorpion's tale. If you can't figure which part it is, use your finger to probe the looper and you'll feel it give a little. This part needs to be moved to the left - it will not slide over, but swing up and over and down, like an arch. Then, where the thread comes out of the looper is where you want the little claw-like part to hook into.)
4. Close the covers. Decrease the needel tension - this depends on what the stitch length is. Stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 3.0 = L needle n/a, R needle 1; upper looper n/a, lower looper 5
stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 5.0 = L needle 0, R needle n/a, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5

Those are for a flatlock stitch - for a 2-thread rolled edge :
Stitch length: 0.5, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4.5, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5
Stitch lenght: 1.0, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4, upper lopper n/a, lower looper 3.0

SOURCE: Baby Lock Evolve wire Looper threading tool

You have to get the replacement wires from a Babylock dealer, I did too then after sticker shock at the price of that wire I learned to make a thread cradle and use that to thread difficult threads no. Take about 24 inches of regular sewing thread and fold it in half, put the open ends (together, same legnth) into the jet air port and hold onto the loop end, press the jet air threader and it will thread the machine, insert the thread you want to use into the loop you have in your hand and pull it thru the machine using the ends of the thread you put thru the machine, sounds harder than it is and works all the time. No more spending $8 on replacement wires. You can use this method for all the jet air sergers.

SOURCE: bottom thread bunching up, baby lock denim pro

bottom thread bunching up is actually the needle thread having no tension. Most likely the upper threading is wrong...

SOURCE: Thread tension on a Baby Lock BL90

I suggest changing both needles
and rethreading the machine
use a can of air that is used for computer keyboards on the inside
here's a link for parts to the machine and also has a manual
the manual should have information about the thread tension

Trouble shoot message. Thread is tangled. Needle is bent.


  1. Upper thread or lint is caught around the check spring.
  2. UNPLUG machine before you take off side cover!
If you don't know how to open side cover take it into your repair tech.

Fo1 main motor speed error on my espire sewing machine


Kim,
Potentially bad news with this error - could need a new motor. On the positive side, if it hasn't been serviced for a fair while, or has been in storage it may be that the oil has dried out and the shafts are "dragging", slowing the machine. Thread tangles in the takeup leaver area can also cause this in some machines. I'd suggest take it into your local sewing centre for a service.

I lost the power cord to my baby lock espire when I moved. How do I get another one?


Contact a local dealer and they can order you one. If you don't have one in your yellow pages, I believe you can find one at Babylock.com
