I have a baby lock 5380E & can't seem to thread it correctly to make it stitch properly. Please help! I know it has to do with threading the upper & lower loopers correctly,


Hopefully you have the manual. It helps to use 4 different colors of thread so you'll be able to differentiate which thread is presenting a problem.

Just thread each thread as though it were the only one, like a sewing machine. Make sure you thread each in the proper order or it will most likely never work. AND ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading and give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk so the thread will seat completely.

Set the tension disks to the midway point, so they are all set about the same. Then test.

If something goes haywire, just bite the bullet, remove ALL the threads and start over threading from the beginning. Believe me, it very seldom works to try to re-thread only one thread...

It took me an entire day to get my new-used serger threaded properly. So don't despair... You might look around for a beginning serger class.

PRO LINE BABY LOCK SERGER, BOTTOM LOOP TOO LOOSE.


Make sure the lower looper thread is seated properly in the tension disk. (RAISE the presser foot. Grasp the thread between the thread tree and the tension disk and with the other hand, grasp the thread below the tension disk and give a little tug.) When threading, always RAISE the presser foot so the tension disks are released.

If the lower looper thread is still too loose, set it to a tighter setting until it creates the stitch you want.

Need basic settings for Baby Lock BL450 Serger. Any idea where I can get it?? My book was lost. The threads don't wrap around the edge of the fabric. I've re-loaded 3 times following the diagram on...


Hi GailKelley,
I have the same model serger. I will make a copy of the stitches and figure out how to get it to you. I recently took my serger out of storage to start some projects. I always struggle threading it but love the look of the stitches when it is set up correctly. Be in touch. MnFriend

I don't have a manual for my Baby lock Pro line model # BL4-738 NS. It was given to me and I have threaded it accordingly to the diagram on the machine but it won't pick up the stitch.


You will have to order the manual from a Baby Lock dealer.

This model may have to be threaded in a certain order.

Try raising the presser foot and setting the tensions to zero.

Turn the handwheel so the upper looper (the curved one) is at it's highest position - there may be a mark on the side of the serger where you align the handwheel for this.

Thread the upper looper and then the lower looper and then the needles.

Pull the threads under the presser foot and toward the side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 4 - 6, lower the presser foot.

Hold onto the thread tails and gently press the power pedal to begin a thread chain before serging fabric.

Factory settings for stitch length and width dials


I hope you have not left this machine for a year! (If you haven't used it, feel free to send it to me!) Since the tensions on this machine are automatically set with the automatic thread delivery system, check to see if you have stitch dial set for an overlock or a flatlock stitch (which is what you're getting now).
