Material is not advancing on my babylock 1550 sewing machine

    Your babylock should have a switch to set the feed dogs at different heights. Depending on how thick your fabric is, if the feed dogs are low and your fabric is very thin, then you need to raise the feed dogs. The manual that came with your machine can instruct you;if you do not have a manual, you can/should purchase one as manuals are very important resources. However, you can look up a Brother 1500 free as they are the same machine

the feed dogs are what pushes on the material from underneath. perhaps they have been lowered ? You do that for free hand or embroidery work,
look for a lever at the back, behind the bobbin area. That's where they are in the janome, which is related to the kenmore somehow; good luck

Manuel for baby lock 1550


Sewusa claims to have the manual for $10 plus shipping. See http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Babylock_Manuals/BL_1550_Instruction_Manual.htm . This other site, http://www.sewingmanuals.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/babylock.htm , also claims to have the manual.

Unfortunately, Babylock no longer has the manual for the Companion 1550 (BL1550) for download. It's unlikely that any Babylock dealers will have the manual. However, dealers will often provide manuals if they have them for a small fee.

I hope this helps.

How do I oil my babylock serger


That depends on the model. The Babylock Triumph (BLETS8) does not get oiled by the user. However, the Babylock Diana (BL480A) needs to be oiled at 4 different points. See the picture on page 63 (page 64 of the PDF) of the manual. Babylock has the manual here: https://babylock.com/resources/5148/download . Current Babylock sewing machine and serger model manuals are available here: https://babylock.com/support/machine-support .

Please add a comment with your serger model. I'll try to find the oiling diagram, if the machine needs regular lubrication. Do not oil any sewing/serger machine unless the manual recommends that as part of the maintenance of the machine. Some Babylock sewing machine dealers will provide you with the manual, if it is available for a small fee. The Babylock serger that I have access to didn't come with a manual. However, we were able to get one from the dealer.

I hope this helps.

How do you use the buttonhole foot on a babylock companion 1550


1.Mark position and length of buttonhole on fabric.
2.Set button on the base and slide base forward to secure button.
* If button does not fit on the base, adjust slide on base to diameter of button plus thickness of button.
a= Length of button + thickness
3.Pass upper thread through the hole of buttonhole foot and attach buttonhole foot to machine.
Bring upper and bobbin threads to the left under foot.
4.Position fabric under presser foot so that the center line mark is in the center of the needle opening in the buttonhole foot. With the main part of the foot pushed to the back, lower the presser foot lever.
5.Lower the buttonhole foot lever so it is positioned behind the raised finger on the foot (see step 5 illustration). a
Note:Machine will not start to sew if buttonhole lever is not lowered properly or buttonhole foot is not positioned correctly.
Note:If machine does not reset for second buttonhole, be sure the presser foot raised finger is pressed against the lever.
6.Hold upper thread lightly and start the machine.

Where does the tension spri ng go on my babylock 1550 bobbin winder


It may be worthwhile to purchase a new bobbin case for your machine. Trying to re-attach the spring will most likely cause the spring tension to change making it difficult to get the tension correct. Bobbin cases do wear out and really are not all that expensive to purchase. A lot of sewists keep more than one bobbin case on hand so they can adjust a specific case to accommodate the tension for specific thread weights.

I need owners instruction manual for baby lock companion 1550 sewing machine.pls help where can i download free manual.


You can check with a Baby Lock dealer an online sewing machine parts vendor, or even eBay. However, it may be difficult to find a manual for your machine due to its age and perhaps even less chance of success for finding a free manual.

We were just given a babylock serger and the fabric won't advance. The dogs don't seem to be moving.


Depends on the model but some machines have a problem that the feed regulator cam has become loose (2 set screws) and will not advance the material. A good Babylock dealer will be able to diagnose quick.
