I cannot find a manual for this machine except at and the price is $14.95.

Contact Babylock to see if they will provide you with a download of the manual -

If this is a mechanical machine, use sewing machine oil and the shuttle may be the only place it will need to be oil.

Baby lock quilt & craft model BL2300K. I received this from mother in law, no manual. Does any one know where the oil locations are so I can oil. Starting to make noise needs oil, thank you, robert

As a computerized machine, it is probable that there is very little (if any) oiling required. You can check with your local Baby Lock dealer's technician for oiling instructions and a manual for your machine. (Oiling incorrectly could permanently damage the machine.)

I was unable to locate a manual for your machine, but did find this web site:

Do I oil my baby lock esante

A lot of newer computerized machines do not require oiling. Oiling improperly could damage the machine. You should probably contact a Baby Lock technician before attempting to oil your machine.

How and where to oil my baby lock sewing machine?

Difficult to advise without a model number.

The owner's manual should have cleaning and oiling instructions (maintenance section).

If that doesn't help, you may want to contact Baby Lock support or a dealer for advice.

Where do I put oil in Esante ESe Baby Lock?

one drop on the needle bar after every 8 hours of sewing, and anywhere metal rubs on metal. But this will only get you so far. the shafts will also need to be oiled and this should be done by a technician as it requires complete disassembly of the machine.

Where to oil and what kind of stitches can it do.

I found my answer by going to the dealer here and asking questions. They were very helpful and friendly. Said that if I need any more help to let them know. I bought a Bernina from them about a year ago. I really like it.
