Are talking about the spool pin(s)? Download the instruction manual for your machine free from the Singer Sewing Machine site. If you have lost the pin or pins, they are currently available on eBay for your machine for $6.95 for two including shipping.

Sewing machine design

It sounds like the spool cap is broken or defective. It should fit snugly on the spool pin. If it is constantly falling off, then try finding a replacement. The horizontal spool pin design helps the machine pull the thread off the spool because the thread spool does not need to spin. The added pressure of spinning a thread spool contributes to tension issues (especially if you are using large thread spools that are so common now days).

On new machines, frequently the thread cutter is on the back of the presser foot lifter.

The thread guide above the needle is usually threaded from the left side because the thread tends to be pulled toward the right.

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing are pretty much common functions with most newer sewing machines, so even changing machines may not result in any greater degree of satisfaction.

Can I download a user guide for the Baby Lock Eclipse somewhere? My granny lost hers, and I'm looking online for a user guide, but can't seem to find it. Thankx

Here is an online user's guide for the Eclipse-sx (6.60 Mb)

There are more manuals on the babylock site... if this is not your model. Look under products and then sergers. The DX is also listed. Click on the DX and when the page loads click on FAQ's and Manuals. You will see the users guide. Rt click and then "save" as to your computer. Or open the manual and then save it.
