Need Parts for an older Baby Lock Serger

I have an old Baby Lock Serger that needs a part for the air threading lower looper (inside the machine). I have searched online and can't find a description anwhere of it. Can you tell me where I may find this part to fix my machine? I bought it used, and it is missing one of these tubes or hoses, whatever it's called. My sister has a machine just like it and we know what it needs, but don't know where to get it.

Thread tension on a Baby Lock BL90


I suggest changing both needles
and rethreading the machine
use a can of air that is used for computer keyboards on the inside
here's a link for parts to the machine and also has a manual
the manual should have information about the thread tension

Where can I get a manual for bernette fun lock 006D


Serger manuals for early machines are really basic.

Thread in order.

upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left needle. (see the inside of the looper cover door.)

Adjust tensions to suit the fabric you are sewing.

If you need to change colors clip threads near the spools and tie on new spools to previous threads and draw threads through an already threaded machine.

Bernina is the brand. But I believe early models of the serger were made by Juki. I've looked for the manual for 006 as well and found thinging. Your only other choice is find someone who has one for sale and ask for a scanned copy.... or order a new one from Bernina or one of the other places that has one.

My serger will only sew a few inches, then the thread on the lower looper breaks. I have checked threading, rethreaded many times.


Been there, done that. Old serger almost went out the window more than once.

Raise the thread antenna and loopers to their highest positions.

Set the tensions to zero. If your serger has auto-tension, raise the presser foot as this also opens the tensions.

Begin threading from the right as indicated in your manual or on the door of the serger.

If this continues, the serger may need to be serviced as the timing could be the problem.

Ask before leaving the serger as the service cost usually starts around $100.

I finally gave in and bought a Babylock with instant jet-air threading.

Where is the upper looper on Baby Lock Eclipse model DX


This is what an upper looper looks like http://www.tradekey.com/selloffer_view/id/3755146.htm

It is the one in the back and point toward the needles.

The looper in the front is the lower looper and points away from the needles.

Open both doors on the front of the serger and you will see the loopers to the left of the thread ports.

I need a replacement manual for Babylock Xscape BL66


You will need to contact a BL dealer to order a manual, if any are available. This model has been replaced.

There is a threading guide in on the inside of the door on the front of the serger.

Raise the presser foot and set the tension controls to zero.

Turn the handwheel until the upper looper (curved looper) is at it's highest point - there may be a mark on the side of the serger and handwheel for aligning to this point.

Thread the upper looper first, then the lower looper, then the needles.

Pull the threads under the presser foot and to the left side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 4 - 6 setting, lower the presser foot and stitch a chain before serging fabric.

You may be able to find a free manual download at the Brother website for a similar product.

I don't have a manual for my Baby lock Pro line model # BL4-738 NS. It was given to me and I have threaded it accordingly to the diagram on the machine but it won't pick up the stitch.


You will have to order the manual from a Baby Lock dealer.

This model may have to be threaded in a certain order.

Try raising the presser foot and setting the tensions to zero.

Turn the handwheel so the upper looper (the curved one) is at it's highest position - there may be a mark on the side of the serger where you align the handwheel for this.

Thread the upper looper and then the lower looper and then the needles.

Pull the threads under the presser foot and toward the side of the serger.

Set the tensions back to 4 - 6, lower the presser foot.

Hold onto the thread tails and gently press the power pedal to begin a thread chain before serging fabric.

The order in which to thread the serger


Your serger should be color coded for threading. Just do one at a time either left to right or right to left with the cones. And you should be all set.

Lower looper


If your lower looper is not catching the needle thread it needs to be timed by an experienced technician. Not for the faint of heart or one without a service manual.
