Question about Baby Lock Imagine

1 Answer

I have the Baby Lock Imagine serger. The hand wheel will not turn and the pedal only makes a grinding sound. I unthreaded the machine, checked the needles, and cleaned out all the lint (I have been sewing on flannel.) The last time the machine bound up, it cost me $150 to get it repaired! Any suggestions? Should I remove the foot and the plate and try to find the jam?

Left needle on baby lock serger "imagine" skips


Change needles if they have done a few hours. Ales use ballpoint if seaming stretch fabrics. Also you can get EL 705 needles, which have a longer scarf (groove at back) which helps with the loopers catching the needle thread. Or SUK is the stretch type with this longer scarf Also if you are using cheaper thread cones, try a better quality with smoother finish and consistent weight, this will help too. However if this doesn't resolve issue, your looper timing might need adjustment.

Babylock Imagine serger was working fine, now light is only thing working, tried another foot pedal and still won't start? Any thoughts?


Can you manually turn the flywheel (towards you) - does the needle and loopers move then through the normal sequence?

If the answer is no, then its most likely something in the drive gear path, possibly a nylon gear inside it that has failed. This can be replaced but probably means a major dismantle of the internals.

You may want to take it to a baby lock dealer and see if they confirm that this is the fault.

I had this gear replaced in my Bernette 334D and it cost $250, part was only $25 of that charge.

My Imagine Serger's threading ports are blowing out air when I press the lever, not sucking the thread back in.


Hello Wardmel
Make sure that the serger is set up for threading, now check that the air tubes are not plugged. You should have a long spun wire to clear the air paths.

Imagine BabyLock Serger. The hand wheel only moves a tiny bit and the gears grind. I cannot remove the needles because the needles are in the down position and the hand wheel does not move enough to raise...


I suggest having a professional look at it, if you don't have one near by. You can try to fix it yourself, but if release the gears the machine willl most likely get out of time and not sew properly.

How to release gears on each gear are 2 set screw, usually a hex head. just turn it counter clockwise and it will release.

But remember the machine will have to be timed, which is a bit to difficult to explain over text chat.

Baby lock Imagine Serger - Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem. The force air threader (looper) will not push the thread all the way through


I "THINK" I have my machine threaded properly but it will not make a chain stitch. I followed the thread guide for the narrow three spool set up with the right needle setting.
why would the machine not catch the chain ????
