Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Grinding sound I accidentally lowered the needle onto the presser foot before moving the needle to the center position. I was able to get it to release and turn on, but now there is a grating/grinding sound when stitching. It does stitch, but the sound is awful.

Did you replace the needle? Look at the hole in the plate and see if the sides are rough. If they are you may be able to cure them with your finger nail file. There is a hook under the plate that rotates or at least goes half way around. Remove this and check for marks that are rough, especially around the sharp end. If you find them you might be able to save it with some sand paper. Make sure you blow this area out and put a drop of sewing machine oil on the race (where the hook came from). Do all of these. If there is still a problem the needle arm may have gotten bent. Do all of these and you may save it yourself. Do one other thing. If your hook is too rough you can order a new one through the internet for about $ 25. You will only need the brand of sewing machine and model. Hope it works.

SOURCE: needle locked in right position

hi . The lock has a clamp arm which receives a threaded fastener and a needle tube arm which has a bore which receives the needle tab. The arms are integrally formed from stainless steel or other suitable sterilizable material. The lock is positioned about the needle tube and may be rotated relative to the needle tube retainer to a selected position and secured by tightening the fastener against the retainer. In this way, the tattoo machine is usable even if the retainer is broken or damaged.

Good day!!!

If your screen stated"main motor blocked" then I suggest you remove the thread,both the top and the bottom.Please change the needle too.but If the problem is unsolved,kindly loosen or unscrew the casing which is in the front of the bobbin, then look/find anything that might be obstructing the bobbin. check again the thread, bobbin and needle.Also for the last thing put an oil to the parts which you think it needs it like the moving parts re-start or reboot it then leave for a whole night.
Thank you and good luck...

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Model 930.Why is presser foot not lined up correctly?


Is your needle position centered? The round dial on the top right is a combination zig-zag stitch width selector and the center silver dial selects the needle position. If it is pointed at the #2, then the needle should be centered and something (probably the needle bar) has been knocked out of alignment on your machine (which would probably mean repair service).

Also, if the needle is hitting the presser foot, you probably have a straight stitch foot on your machine which requires the needle be centered. To do any decorative or zig-zag stitching, the presser foot needs to have a wide space for the needle to swing back and forth. The zig-zag foot is marked with a zero.

Bar that hold the sewing foot is loose


If the comment already posted did not answer your question, here is another thing to check. If the screw that attaches the foot and ankle to the presser foot bar is tight, and the foot can still be moved, it is likely that the presser foot bar has become loose within the lifting mechanism. You could save yourself some trouble by taking your machine to a sewing machine repair shop, but if you would rather avoid that expense, do the following. Remove the needle bar and take up mechanism cover on the left side of the machine. This is held on by a single phillips head screw on the back side of the machine, which, with the back of the machine facing you, should be on the top right side of the machine. Once this cover is removed you will be able to see two vertical metal shafts, one is attached to your needle clamp and needle, and should be in the front. The other is the presser foot bar, and will be behind the needle bar. There should be a small allen screw about halfway up that shaft that tightens onto the bar. With the presser foot properly positioned on the needle plate, tighten this allen screw. Don't tighten the screw too tightly, as this can damage the presser bar, just make sure it's nice and snug. Make sure the presser foot raises and lowers properly, and re-attach the needle bar cover.
Hope this helps.

I can't get the foot to lower and raise.


it sounds like it's out of time--here's how to fix it
to adjust the pressure on the presser bar and in turn the foot, locate the thumb
screw at the top of the machine

by rotating the thumb screw clockwise, you will increase the pressure, a counter
clockwise turn will decrease the pressure

the correct height of the pressure foot from the needle plate is 7mm.
to adjust this clearence loosen the screw & adjust the pressure bar through
the guide
secure the screw firmly when the correct adjustment is obtained

the distance between the presser bar lifting arm & the presser bar guide should
be 0.5mm ..( be sure the needle bar does not rotate left or right during the
adjustment process. the needle must be center of the presser foot & needle
plate hole,, if this is not centered re-adjust to the center of both needle foot
& needle plate hole.

Remove sewing maqchine case


Plate on bottom: Remove screws. Keep screws in safe place and oil moving parts with good quality sewing machine oil. Zoom with spout for sewing machines & servers is what I use purchased online...lubricate gears with Singer lubricant (in tube). Tip machine back onto a towel to remove screws. Just one drop oil on moving parts & dot of lube gear only if not showing signs of grease already. Please remove bobbin and presser foot before cleaning/oiling. One drop oil then generously SMEAR oil on oscillating hook, open right front door & one drop top of needle bar. Clean out race shuttle for lint, fuzz balls, broken threads with soft sewing machine brush & clean your feed dogs gently with bristles too. Hope this helps. Do not clean machine near children or curious pets! I run my machine with pedal on table top so I don't accidentally step on it. Control with right hand to see moving parts. At your own risk, of course. Safe and effective but only if you are extremely careful. Replace all screws securely. Put in new needle all the way UP into needle bar groove, presser foot UP turning handwheel towards you, flat end of needle to back, Thread Front to Back of needle.. Keeping presser foot raised @ highest position ensures thread locates the tension slots properly. Jimmy

Bernina Artista 640 - While embroidering, the sewing needle hit a pin and broke. Now that I have replaced the needle, the alignment is off. The needle point comes down onto the embroidery presser foot.


This will probably need to be handled by a professional. With this particular Bernina, you might be able to adjust the needle position so that it is slightly off center and will not hit the presser foot. That would be a temporary fix, however. If you want to be able to thoroughly enjoy your sewing time, you will be happier if you take it to a certified Bernina repair site and let them adjust the needle position.

How do I install my darning foot?


First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.

Presser foot wont raise and lower


Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.
