My overlocker sews way too fast making it impossible to turn corners neatly. I read an article on line some time ago by a service agent who described the adjustment needed to the footswitch to slow it down but I am now unable to find the article again. It contained clear illustrations and appeared very simple. Does anyone have this information?
Have actually solved the problem now. there is an on line page which describes pulling the foot switch apart and adjusting the speed control slider for a BabyLock Evolve machine and this solution worked perfectly for the Imagine despite dire warnings from the importer not to do this.

Try rethreading it using the order: 3, 4, 2, 1. If you are threading it in the wrong order it will give you problems. Afterwards, you will need to carefully adjust the tension controls. This can be done more easily using four different colored threads.
I have a feeling that there is a bent part on your machine, my Brother 1034d had a bent presser foot shaft, and did this. Sewing parts online, saved me a lot of money by letting me buy a new one for a reasonable price and my husband installed.
Sounds like the foot petal needs
to be taken apart and cleaned.
Make sure everything is unplugged.
Use WD-40 on everything except
any electrical parts, it has chemical
agents in it that break down the plastic
after a long period of time.
Check your needle. Make sure it is not blunt, try a Size 90 Topstitch needle or Embroidery needle. If you are using a thread thicker than regular piecing weight, you need a needle with a larger eye and a larger scrarf - the hollowed out bit at the back of the needle. Also don't sew too fast nor change direction too sharply. If you need to do a sharp turn, let the machine "mark time" once at the turn before moving off in the new direction. Pam
