You can check with a Baby Lock dealer an online sewing machine parts vendor, or even eBay. However, it may be difficult to find a manual for your machine due to its age and perhaps even less chance of success for finding a free manual.
Normally when you have a jam with material the machine with lock up to prevent further damage. Once the jam is removed "completely" the machine will unlock on its own. But, on occasions it will not. Unplug the machine from the power & any hardware you have attached to it such as a computer. Allow the machine to "rest" for several hours. This allows the lock up to clear from the memory & the machine should preform when you return it to the power. Also remove the bed plates around the needle area & check carefully for leftover material, thread, dust, bent parts & replace the needle. Good luck.
A serger does not have a bobbin,they use loopers instead to form a chain stitch. I'm very familiar with the baby lock and they are a simple machine. Email me and I will try to guide you to the solution, chances are it not an adjustment problem but a dry feed cam. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Check that the button used to snip your thread at the end of your seam is not stuck. Mine will sometimes stick and if I just touch it again it will again activate and the red start/stop button will work again.
try this site and see if the download gives you a troubleshooting code. http://www.babylock.com/downloads/instructions/?Update_ID=95 Babylock.com has really good cust. service, but your dealer should know what steps to take to clear this code. If the sell an addtional information book on your machine, and stitching BUY it, it was so worth my $70 for my Evolve book (200+pages of HOW to's for that 8 thread monster!)
