Hi Gypsy:

Take a look at your sewing manual for your Pro Line. I suspect you have your bobbin in upside down. Most machines require the thread to spool off the bobbin in a certain direction.

Why does the bobbin case on my Baby Lock Elegante seize and pop up?


Sounds like you have a burr. Examine both the case and the bobbins for burrs. (use your fingernail... feel for thing that catch your nail) File them off carefully with fine grit sand paper.

Burrs can happen when a needle bends and breaks... stabbing the wrong area... sometimes it's manufacturer defect in the plastic bobbins.

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.

It sounds like the tension between the top and bottom threads isn't balanced. With the machine threaded, pull both threads towards you and feel if one is tighter than the other and if so, adjust the tension. Top thread adjusts with the tension knob on the front of the machine, bottom thread adjusts where you load the bobbin. Could also be that the bobbin is sitting in the shuttle the wrong way. Have it sitting in the shuttle so that as you look at the open shuttle and pull the thread, the bobbin turns clockwise. Hope this helps.
