Question about Baby Lock Esante

1 Answer

I have an Esante ESe2. I am having a problem with the bobbin. I was doing some embroidery and the machine broke a needle in some dense stitching. Now, the machine will sew about 10 stitches and then the upper thread breaks. I have checked the bobbin area and cannot find anything that would cause the problem. The bobbin is pulled up and hits the cover. Any suggestions? I did adjust a piece that I'm not sure if it is put back right or not. It is the metal piece that comes into the bobbin race from the left. It has two positions that are determined by a small metal circle that fits into a opening.

Since the needle broke, it could have knocked your machine out of time--requiring service.

FIRST, try this: Remove the upper thread from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Frequently, when the thread "jumps" out of the thread path (or wraps around a guide or the spool), the thread will stitch about an inch and then break. If you watch the upper thread when you are stitching, do you see the thread tightening, tightening, tightening and then Snap?

As far as the bobbin installation, you would need to consult your owner's manual.

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread

I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.

It could be that your bobbin case popped out of position. Try removing and resetting it.
It could be that you have no upper tension, either lint in the tension discs or upper thread is mis-threaded and did not get down into the tension discs (make sure lifter lever is up when threading so the discs are open).
good luck!

Check the easy stuff first:
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correctly.

the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly.

the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is not so, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case.

Do you have the same problem when sewing other lighter weight fabrics, like a woven cotton? If so, your machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

If it only occurs when using felt, then it an issue of using the best tools and supplies that are compatible with felt. Felt is a very dense fabric and could very well be interfering with the performance of your machine. A lighter weight needle may deflect on dense fabric and cause skipped stitches. You probably need to use a heavier needle, ie #14 Sharp, or even a #16. You might look at one that has a larger scarf to shield the thread as it pierces the felt, like a top-stitch needle.

Do The ESE ESante Baby Lock hoops fit the ESI ESante Baby Lock machines


The Babylock Esante ESE1 and ESE2 hoops are not compatible with the Esante ESI1 or ESI2 hoops. The Babylock ESI1/2 used the same hoops as the Brother PC7000 and PC7500. The ESE1/2 use the hoops that are compatible with the Brother PC6500 and PE700 series embroidery machines.

I wish that I had better news for you. This site has hoops for sale for both the ESI1 and the ESE1: http://www.allbrands.com/categories/871 . If you need hoops for either machine, use the compatibility data on each machine type to help you find more vendors that may have the embroidery hoops.

How do you place an embroidery design from a card into the machine memory? I have a ESe2. Thanks!


For the Brother NV1500 (aka Babylock Esante ESE2).

Bring the embroidery design onto the screen.

Press the save button in the upper right of the screen.(it looks like a pocket)

See pages 141 to 143 of your instruction manual "Saving Embroidery Patterns In The Machine's Memory"

I used the embroidery bobbin sewing and now it's not functioning


I do not believe the bobbin thread is the reason for the problem.

Refer to your manual for maintenance, especially cleaning the bobbin area.

When you replace the bobbin case be sure the needle is in it's highest position and this will also set the shuttle in position to properly accept the case.

If the problem continues, then machine will need to go into the shop. If the timing needs to be adjusted, this is best done by a Bernina tech.

Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves


Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.

Bobbin problems!


MAKE SURE you are using the correct SIZE bobbin. Some of the older plastic bobbins don't swap around in the newer machines & just because they LOOK the same doesn't mean they are. If you are absolutely POSITIVE you are using the right size bobbin (mark it w/ a permanent marker if you have to, to keep track of it), check & double check you are putting the bobbin in the case in the right direction & make sure there aren't any loose threads anywhere in the area where the bobbin sits... be sure all little dust bunnies are removed. I know it sounds redundant but get your book out & be POSITIVE you are threading thru all the thread paths in the right direction. My Babylock is supremely **** when it comes to putting the shuttle back in after I've cleaned the bobbin area & if I don't get it back exactly where it supposed to go, it won't sew right. I always have to get my book back & check it out again step by step. I have it do crazy stuff just because there was a little tail hanging out where the bobbin started to wind that I didn't cut off close enough.
