    Our Ellegante' has had threading problems since we purchased it new. Sometimes it would thread, sometimes not. Then very often it breaks the thread during embroidery or sewing. We also get a "grinding" sound from the auto threading unit from time to time when it doesn't thread. This machine has actually been back to the BabyLock factory and they kept it for 2 months, it failed to function properly after only a few embroidery patterns. We are currently working with the distributor to solve this problem. We are thinking it is a design flaw in the machine.

It is something I cannot explain how to do on here, you need to be shown, would suggest you get in touch with a sewing machine tech.

My serger, Babylock Imagine's looper threads are too tight. I have tried rethreading, adjusting the fine tuning screw and varying stitch lengths and widths. At the recommended setting for the 3 thread...


I am having this same problem today. The needle threads when pressed look almost like a flatlock stitch. There seems to be no tension. With BabyLock's auto tension system, I have no idea what to do. I've been on the phone with my dealer about this today and he is clueless as to what may be causing it. I guess it's time for a checkup.

AUTO THREADER CAME OUT


When you activated the threader, the needle was down and the threader came off or broke.

If it is not broken, you may be able to push it back into place.

Turn off the power and tip the machine back on some towels so it does not slip and with a flash light check the area where it fits and see if you can get it back into position.

If not, will have to thread the needle the old fashion way.

Check with your Brother dealer to see if they can look at the machine while you wait.

They may be able to get it back together or they will have to replace the threader.

It is possible they will have one in stock, or they may have to order it.

My auto thread component is not egaging the thread down to the needle.


Need more information. Is the auto thread component going down to the needle? Is
it missing the needle hole? If this is the problem, make sure that the needle position is in the correct position by pushing the needle position button. This will bring the needle to correct height for the thread to be inserted. I had a problem similar and it was because the needle was not in the correct position. When using the thread insertion press it slowly and watch to see where the insertion part is going.

Show me how to use the auto threader


Thread the machine to the point where the thread is in the needle bar thread guide. With you left hand hold the upper thread towards you. With your right hand pull down on the threader unit and twist it so the tiny hook goes through the eye of the needle and hold it there. Now take the thread that you are holding in your left hand and pass it to the rear of the machine under the small guides on the threader hook. Release the threader mechanism and the thread and the tiny hook should pull a small loop through the eye. Pull on this small loop (which will be on the right side) all the way through the eye.
Viola!

good luck!

Unable to thread lower looper on Babylock Eclipse BLE1SX


On rare occasions lint can clog the yubes on these sergers. One of the first things I do is thread the wire through in the opposite direction. It will sometimes push the blockage out. The other option is to use an air compressor and again blow the lint out from the opposite side. If this does not work take it to a service man.
