There is a small metal rod about 1/2" long that fits into the hold in front of the screw that holds the needle secure. I didn't realize that I had dropped the rod until I could not tighten the needle. I found the rod, put it into the hole and was able to tighen the needle.

The needle wont stayed treadedwhile sewing. I have changed out the needle and changed out the thread and it keeps unthereading while sewing the bobber is working just wont stay threaded threw the neddle


My trouble shooting suggestions are:

check that the thread is in the thread take up lever eye correctly
Is the top tension set too tight, ie should be on 5
Is the thread catching somewhere in the thread path?
Is it catching on the thread spool itself, sometimes they have a little notch cut in the top edge to hold the thread tail but it could be getting caught in there during sewing. If so, turn thread spool up the other way or use a mushroom cap on top to hold the thread off the spool top edge.

just go through the top threading path checking thread is into all thread eyes correctly and not catching on anything and that it is threaded correctly, it should be one of the above causing this.

remove the front cover around the needle area also you may have to just strip the machine down!! to the hard ware with the bobbin door removed rotate by hand the crank till the neddle goes down to the bobbin area and losen the screws on the bell part of the crank and adjust it till
the needle is dead center and all the way into the bobbin then tighten and reassemble

Neddle problem


Sounds like the needle is hitting the bobbin casing. Take it out and re-seat it. Check your manual.

Neddle hitting the bobbon


does the hook assembly move when you turn the handwheel? If no, then your hook drive gears are shot.

Tension settings for the babylock sewing machine


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.

Needle doesn't connect with bobbin


hello there, do you mean you can't hooked up the lower bobbin thread to neddle bobbin thread, all you gonna do is to check the bobbin winding thread if it is in clockwise rotation when you pull out on the bobbins casing, insert the shattle casing, then manually rotate by your hand try to hooked up the bobbin thread by your neddle thread. let me know if you got it
regards.. rated me thanks
