Question about Baby Lock Eclipse Serger

1 Answer

Pro line Baby Lock timing

After reading your posts, I believe I need to adjust my timing. I have a Baby Lock ProLine BL 5000n. Sweet machine. It won't pick up the bobbin thread. I've tried multiple rethreadings, bobbin changes, new needles and (gasp) even reading the manual. I did break a needle at the end of my last sucessful sewing session - so I'm pretty confident that it's the timing (said the rookie).

I would like to learn how to adjust the timing. Help Please!

    I have a Babylock proline 7800 and the needle keeps hitting the pressure foot and breaking. I suspect it needs to be timed. Does anyone have the instructions on how I might attempt to do this? I am pretty handy and I think I would like tot o give it a try.

    Thank,

    Linda

My aunt just gave me this Baby Lock Pro Line Serger BL4-738D 4 Thread Is this a good machine.


Baby Lock is a very good serger. Have you ever used one before? If not, be sure to read through the manual carefully before you try to use it. They're not just like other sewing machines. Enjoy.

I cannot get the bobbin to wind because it won't engage. I've got it threaded properly according to the manual. Any ideas?


the bobbin winding spindle probably needs to be checked to see
if it needs some adjustment.

Perhaps was same as my problem.

Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years often have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance by a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. So a Baby Lock can sew, then temporarily be sluggish then later slow till sluggish; and at worst, seem to be doing everything right BUT not advancing the cloth -- that's when the worst damage is done and professional repair is needed. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $70 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
Been there, done that.
