Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines

1 Answer

The start button won't stay green on my Baby Lock Ellegante. There seems to be a power shortage not in the foot pedal but in the connection where you plug the pedal into the machine somewhere.

Babylock Imagine serger was working fine, now light is only thing working, tried another foot pedal and still won't start? Any thoughts?

Can you manually turn the flywheel (towards you) - does the needle and loopers move then through the normal sequence?

If the answer is no, then its most likely something in the drive gear path, possibly a nylon gear inside it that has failed. This can be replaced but probably means a major dismantle of the internals.

You may want to take it to a baby lock dealer and see if they confirm that this is the fault.

I had this gear replaced in my Bernette 334D and it cost $250, part was only $25 of that charge.

I have a baby lock ellure esl it it a few yrs old but i really have hardly used it for much i am trying to wind my bobbin and the shaft does not turn when i try to get it to wind. am i stupid or just...

Mine does that too. You disconnet the foot pedal (the smaller cord), then push the bobbin to the left, then hit the start/stop button where all the other buttons are. You may have to tap it lightly towards the right side of the machine to get it to "catch".
