Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines
The culprit is dry oil packings on either end of the motor. What happens is as the motor starts to run the shaft and bearings heat up causing the armature to almost seize up hence the slow down. To correct the problem remove the right side cover and the rear cover that shields the motor. Once the motor is exposed you will be able to visually see the oil packings through the air vent holes on either side of the motor. Apply numerous drops of oil onto the packings allowing them to soak in after each drop. A dozen drops on each side should due the trick. Happy Serging!

Your problem is probably the stitch length adjustment cam (located on the left side of the machine) To fix this problem you will need to remove the small plastic cap (with red arrow) covering the screw securing the cam. It is usually also necessary to remove the connecting rod/sleeve that the cam rides in. Once both of these parts have been removed, you will need to carefully separate them and resurface the inside of the sleeve. This can be done with a very fine (500grit or higher) emery paper. Once the cam fits inside the sleeve without binding, reassemble using sewing machine oil or lithium grease and adjust feed dog timing.
