Baby Lock 5360E serger noise

My 5360E baby lock serger is sewing great but makes a terrible noise, and slows down after sewing about 6 inches.

    I have a Baby Lock 5260 D that is having the same problem. It sews fine for a few inches or so then it seems to slow down and make a strange noise. Does anyone know what is wrong with it?

Contact your dealer or one on-line. They'll sell anything for money. There's also a good workbook available although expensive. But worth it.

Baby lock bl4 736d serger slows down and stops


Your serger needs service. (clean, oil, adjust, etc.) It may be that the motor is not lubed well enough and as it is being run it heats up and expands which causes it to bog down and stop. I would take it in for service and "mention" this issue while you are there.

Baby lock serger motor slows down after sewing 20 minutes. Why?


Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years usually have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance by a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. So a Baby Lock can sew, then temporarily be sluggish then later slow till sluggish; and at worst, seem to be doing everything right BUT not advancing the cloth -- that's when the worst damage is done and professional repair is needed. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $70 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
Been there, done that.

Starts good, loses steam


Your machine either needs a new motor or belt. How long has it been since you have taken it in for servicing? Sergers are work horses. They get better as they age, so take it in for servicing.
