SOURCE: Easy Lock Serger Broken Lower Looper

You will need to buy a new looper from a dealer with a spare parts account for this brand.
It is tricky to set up the loopers without a service manual, so best suggest you also have them install and service the machine at the same time or you risk breaking the new one if it is even slightly out of alignment.
You may also find that parts availability at this time of year will be restricted as many businesses and suppliers close for several weeks.

SOURCE: Feed dog on Serger Babylock 5260D

Make sure that the presser foot dial (the silver "knob") on top of the machine is not too loose. You can adjust this w/ a nickel; tighten it all the way down & then loosen about 4 full rotations for cotton fabrics. Also make sure the Differentail feed lever is on "N". You can order a book from your local Baby Lock dealership for all models. Good Luck.

Been there, done that. Old serger almost went out the window more than once.

Raise the thread antenna and loopers to their highest positions.

Set the tensions to zero. If your serger has auto-tension, raise the presser foot as this also opens the tensions.

Begin threading from the right as indicated in your manual or on the door of the serger.

If this continues, the serger may need to be serviced as the timing could be the problem.

Ask before leaving the serger as the service cost usually starts around $100.

I finally gave in and bought a Babylock with instant jet-air threading.

Hi. Do somebody know the part number of lower looper holder I bought the ea 605 babylock and do not have it. Thanks for help.


If you need a replacement blade, they can be found on many internet web sites:

Baby Lock Serger Blades Knives

If you need a part that holds the knife, you could probably contact or go to a sewing repair shop or a Babylock dealer.

How to replace a lower looper on my babylock bl4-428d serger


Yes, but it's not a do it yourself job for most people, as the timing will have to be redone.

Serger is not stitching at all. It has something to do with how the thread is installed. Needing a diagram


The diagram is on the inside of the serger door;

Raise the antenna to it's highest position.
Turn the handwheel until the loopers are at their highest position.
Set tensions to zero and raise the presser foot.
Begin threading from right to left, beginning with the upper looper.
Set the tensions back to mid-range.
Lower the presser foot and stitch a chain and if it is formed as it should be you are ready to serge.

There are manuals available for downloading at the Babylock website for the models DX and SX.

Jet air not working on the evolution serger by babyloc can anyone


HI
Have you tried to use the wire to pull some floss type thread through the loopers ( I often use a cleaning fluid on the floss thread to clean out the inside the looper tubes.
If this fails to help, likely a professional change of the loopers should be considered

If you have further questions, contact me at sewaway@shaw.ca

My serger will only sew a few inches, then the thread on the lower looper breaks. I have checked threading, rethreaded many times.

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.

Unable to thread lower looper on Babylock Eclipse BLE1SX


On rare occasions lint can clog the yubes on these sergers. One of the first things I do is thread the wire through in the opposite direction. It will sometimes push the blockage out. The other option is to use an air compressor and again blow the lint out from the opposite side. If this does not work take it to a service man.
