Question about Baby Lock Evolve

1 Answer

I am not able to depress the machine lock button in order to thread the machine. So I can't use it at all. It worked last night, but the problem arose when I tried to re-thread it for a different stitch.

Push the looper lock button in firmly and rotate the handwheel towards you and it will lock. Usually people do not push hard enough to get it to spring into place. Very unusual for it to be anything different. Hope this helps if not let me know...

I need to know how to thread a brother lock 530 overlocker

How to thread brother lock 530 Brother Sewing Machines

Follow the instructions exactly. Each thread needs to threaded in the order stated in the manual. Threading out of order will guarantee failure. Also, whenever a thread breaks or comes unthreaded during use, it is very difficult to rethread that one thread and be successful. If it doesn't work the first time, just bite the bullet (save yourself some frustration) and rethread all the threads from the beginning.

NOTE: ALWAYS THREAD with the presser foot in the raised position! When threading through the tension disks, give each thread an extra little tug to make sure it is seated completely.

The lower looper thread keeps breaking out of the last eye. I have checked the tension and correct threading. The thread is not broken just comes out of the last eye.

I went through this very same problem just before Christmas. It seems the only thing that works is to remove all the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Be sure to give each thread an extra tug when going through the tension mechanism to make sure it seats properly. ALWAYS thread each in the correct order (this is IMPERATIVE!). And, of course, verify the thread path for each is correct.

I had to rethread several times, but eventually it came around...

Good luck!

How do I thread my overlocker

If thread is breaking, it usually means it is threaded incorrectly--either you have missed a thread guide or have it looped somewhere it shouldn't be. The tension could also be too tight on that one thread.

RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading!

Be sure you are threading each thread in the ORDER described in the owner's manual. Most machines are threaded in this order: 2nd thread from the right (upper looper), last thread on right (lower looper (this thread must cross over the top of the upper looper in the final step!!!), then the needles--but you must check your machine's manual for the correct order!

Confirm with your owner's manual that you are threading all the guides. If you miss one of the thread guides, your machine will most likely not operate.

Also, if you break a thread, it is strongly recommended that you remove ALL the threads and start over from the beginning. Sergers can be very finicky!

My thread on my elna sewing machine keeps breaking or coming loose :( I snapped a needle last night and now it keeps doing this :(

have you got all the pieces of the needle out? Check if the lower thread is not tangled up inside and that the thread tensioner is not blocked.

How do you load the thread on the bobbin?

On the back of the machine, by the hand knob, there is a post that moves back and forth, place your bobbin on this, and slide it to the hand knob, unscrew the end to loosen the mechanism, then place thread onto the bobbin, holding one end. With the lock loosened, depress the pedal, and holding the thread, it should spool onto the bobbin. I hope I didn't confuse you too much, but that's pretty much the answer. Just be sure to rescrew the lock onto the hand control knob on the rear of the machine.

My sewing machine gears jammed.

One or more of the bushings is seized, the machine needs to disassembled, the bushings removed, cleaned, re-lubricated. Not something you can do yourself.

Why is my screen showing the 'bobbin threading' icon??

Perhaps the bobbin winding mechanism is stuck. Probably needs service.

Also, check the bobbin and bobbin case. Perhaps there is some thread stuck or it is not securely threaded through the tensioner.

The order in which to thread the serger

Your serger should be color coded for threading. Just do one at a time either left to right or right to left with the cones. And you should be all set.

Automatic threader does not take the thread. I

Open the front cover and raise presser foot to release all threads. Depress the machine lock button firmly with your left index finger. At the same time manually rotate the machine hand wheel slowly forward until he button "snaps" into the locked position and the lock button release lever moves to the far left.
