Baby Lock Encore ESn Manual

I'm unable to find a sewing manual for the subject. Do you have any suggestions?

Problem: Unable to change/select a straight stitch.

    I have a babylock encore. I cannot clear the previous stitch. I have pushed the clear button and turned the machine on and off. When I put in the number of the stitch I want and hit enter it says the two stitches cannot be combined.

    I also now have a similar problem-- the Encore 0, 1, and 2 buttons won't work for stitch selection. I can still do a straight stitch (01) by turning the machine off and on, then it defaults to the 01 position-- but that puts the needle in the far left. Is there a reset code for this machine?

SOURCE: Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

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.

SOURCE: when selecting the buttonhole option and starting

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.

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:

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.

Only a few of the stitch selection buttons work on the machine. It is a babylock ESn Encore.

You will have to take the machine to an authorized BL dealer for service.

I'm having trouble centering my frame to begin embroidering and am unable to find it in the manual.

See if there is a lever on the front of the plate where the hoop slips in. This should be up to open and once the hoop is in place, down to lock.
