How to Calibrate the Enterprise 10-Needle Machine

If you are having trouble with the calibration of the machine, here is an easy tutorial to get your machine back on the right path.

  1. Hold down both the Stop/Start Button and the Needle Threader Button while turning on the machine.
  2. When the machine beeps, take your fingers off the two buttons.
  3. You do not use hoops to do this procedure.
  4. The words AD Sensor Test will appear on the screen. Push the Blue Lock button on the screen so that it says “unlock”. Follow the next set of instruction:

    a. Attach the white “A” Arm bracket that holds all the standard hoops.

    b. Slide the left arm of the bracket out so that the inside thumb screw lines up with notch #2 (second from end). See Fig.1. Tighten the screws.

    c. Push the button to the right of “LL Save”

    d. Loosen the thumb screws and slide the left arm in to align with notch #5 (all the way in) See Fig. 2. Tighten the thumb screws.

    e. Push the button to the right of “S Save”

    f. Remove the “A” Arm from the machine and install the “B” Arm.

    g. Slide the left arm of the bracket out so that the inside thumb screw, lines up with notch #1 (all the way out). See Fig.3. Tighten the thumb screws. Push the button to the right of “JUMBO Save”.

    h. Loosen the thumb screws and slide left arm in to align with notch #4 (second from the end) See Fig. 4. Tighten the thumb screws.

    i. Push the button to the right of “QUILT Save”

  5. Push the Red unlock button to Lock.
  6. Turn off the machine.
  7. Turn the machine back on and the machine is calibrated.
  8. To check, without a design on the screen, install the “A” Arm back on machine with any hoop with grid and the center hole will align with center hole on needle plate.

    How will we know the machine needs calibration?

      If you get a continual message that states “Replace with larger frame” and you know that your design will fit in the frame. Your machine needs to be calibrated. Sometimes just the vibration of the machine during standard use will throw the machine off slightly. Happy embroidery!

    Is it the same for the 6 needle machine? I’ve gotten that message a few times. I remember Eileen saying that the big gray screws need to be tighten.

    Will this work on the Babylock 6 needle machine. I purchased it about 4 years ago and started having this problem today (go figure it started after I read your e-mail).

    I just calibrated my BabyLock 10 needle and the center hole in the grid is a couple of stitches to the left of the needle hole.

      Did you get a reply? The same thing is going on with me too.

        Pam… looks like I need to calibrate too. Did you get your issue figured out?

          The calibration did not work. Baby Lock seems to think it’s a sensor issue. A repair man is coming this week. I hope it’s resolved soon! I need my machine!

    I am a new Enterprise owner and cannot get the machine to recognize the jumbo hoop. I have calibrated the machine and it makes no difference. Do you have any other ideas?

    I have a Brother Persona. It’s like a single needle commercial machine. It seems to get in-calibrated a bit. I’ve already had it in once. I hope this would work with mine as well. Thanks, Lissa

    thx for the written tutorial! Do you know how to calibrate the 14×14 hoop on the B arm?

    I use Premier+2 Embroidery Software and have created a design in the Brother Jumbo Hoop (Brother PR1000e). It transfers to the machine and is split in two. My problem is one side of the design does not line up while the other side is fine. I tested the hoop and the fabric did not move. Is it a calibration issue?
