Question about Baby Lock Esante
I'm unable to find a sewing manual for the subject. Do you have any suggestions?
Problem: Unable to change/select a straight stitch.
Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)
It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I will go there and purchase one! You were very helpful."
It sounds like the feed block in the machine is sticking. This happens when the machine has been sitting for a time or not had much use. The old grease hardens slightly or "gums up" and the mechanism doesn't return easily to it correct position. A trip to your service tech would be your best bet.
