Question about Baby Lock Esante

1 Answer

Needle timing. Ihave a Model Ese2 . I have a quarter inch foot with a very tiny hole for the needle. I forgot to change the needle setting to the middle and broke my needle. They say that threw off my needle timing. I would like to know how to repair this myself since I have done it before and it cost $40 every time I have it repaired.

Timing of a sewing machine, which timing? Needle to hook timing is fairly simple, turn the hand wheel in the direction the machine sews until it is at bottom of the stroke. Continue turning it until it moves up 2.54 mm if it is timed correctly the point of the hook should be right behind the needle and passing above the eye in the middle of the scarf of the needle. There are several timing of a sewing machine, needle to hook, feed and swing timing.

The needle keeps breaking


Either you have the wrong foot installed or your stitch setting is incorrect. Dial in a narrower setting. You may have a zig-zag setting without the zig-zag foot attachment, or your "width" dial is too wide for the foot's hole. Slowing turn the wheel and watch where the needle penetrates the foot hole. A collision at that point will break your needle every time!

When I sew silk or fine fabric the thread breaks and the fabric bunches up, what am I doing wrong, I first had the A foot and changed to B, changed the needle and still the problem persists


Check to be sure you are using needles and thread that are compatible with the fabric. Generally, finer threads will work better on fine fabrics along with a smaller needle. Be sure to change needles frequently as dull, bent, or nicked needles will cause very frustrating issues.
All About Needles

Remove the thread completely from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning, making sure the thread path is correct.

Some machines have a presser foot pressure adjustment (consult the owner's manual). Adjusting the pressure that the presser foot applies to the fabric & feed dogs is helpful when sewing especially fine or heavy fabric. Also, when sewing fine fabrics, loosening the tension could be beneficial.

Changing presser feet may also help, ie try using a straight stitch foot vs a presser foot for zig-zag stitching.

Something else you can try is finding a presser foot with a teflon finish or a roller foot that will glide or roll with the fabric through the machine. Even if you can't find a brand name presser foot for your particular machine, an adapter shank can probably be found that would allow you to use snap-on feet of all different designs and uses. Provides a lot of choices for presser feet for less than purchasing a brand-name presser foot. There are snap-on kits available on eBay and other auction sites.

Some machines also can take a straight-stitch needle plate--usually an additional accessory that can be purchased. The hole where the needle penetrates the needle plate to access the bobbin thread is actually a small round hole. With a zig-zag needle plate, the hole the needle penetrates is a wide rectangular hole that can allow fine fabrics to be pulled down through the hole. Zig-zag capable machines usually have a zig-zag needle plate as standard.

Crazy question but .....how do you center the needle? Always sits to the left


Don't know about your particular model, but maybe left is the normal "resting" position. When on zigzag it will move to the right then back to the left. As long as all of your different stitch patterns keep the needle between the limits of the hole above the shuttle and does not hit the machine bed then I would best guess everything is fine.
Hope that is of some help.

Needle keeps breaking Model 150 Euro=Pro Sew Machine


broken needles can happen if you are pulling the fabric through rather thsn letting feed dogs move it, or if stitch setting needs a wide hole foot but you have straight stitch foot on. could also mean timing between needle and shuttle is out of sync.
or needle size is too small for weight of fabric you are sewing.
check out www.sewing.about.com for needle size info and use new needle for each new project.
if yoy suspect timing out take to technician for fulk service.

I have a Kenmore model 1690. The needle when it goes down does not hit the hole in the foot plate. It comes down too far to the left of the opening, making it impossible to use the machine. I have...


This machine, when you have it on straight stitch, will sew with the needle to the left. If it's hitting the pressure foot, you may have the wrong pressure foot on the machine. If it's hitting the needle plate when you have the pressure foot removed, it's possible you have set for zig zag and you have a straight stitch needle plate on the machine. I believe this machine came with 2 needle plates. One for straight stitch, and another for zig zag.

I have broken 2 needles and now the new needle (foot) will not move up and down. i have double checked all settings and nothing has helped. any suggestions


Hello,
Here are several solutions for you to try.

* Your broken needle may have been too thin for your fabric. Make sure your replacement needle
is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric and thread. You may also need a thicker needle if you’re sewing through bulky layers of fabric. When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it’s attached securely.

* Change your pressure foot. Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.

* Don’t sew over pins. A needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.

* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.

* Check your needle plate to make sure it's securely in position.

* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle, right,left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


I hope this helps.

Threading & Use of Needle Threder


Threading as per image....make sure presser foot is up so top thread will properly engage in tension unit, make sure your thread is inserted in small guide on needle arm too. Your user guide should have a clear graphic of this process which is essentially the same for all machines.
2bc0705.jpg
As for the needle threader, once thru the last guide on the needle arm, raise needle to highest position, lower the needle threader so that the tiny hook engages the eye of the needle and place thread horizontally from L to R along the plastic arm so the tiny hook can grab thread, release threader and a small loop will form in needle, pull it clear and you are away !

If the tiny hook has been bent, a little judicious and gentle bending to re-align may be necessary, use a jewellers screwdriver or similar and please be very gentle
