Question about Sewing Machines
The motor on my Baby Lock looses power and I have to stop sewing and let it cool down after 15 or 20 min of sewing.
What are you sewing? Might be way too heavy to sew on this little machine.
Motor is failing if heavy use motor is dying or voltage regulator inside machine is gone bad.

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.

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.
