HOW TO OIL A SEWING MACHINE


THIS IS ONLY DONE WITH SEWING MACHINE OIL.
CLEAN ALL PARTS WITH QTIPS OR RAGS PRIOR TO PUTTING OIL ON.
1. OIL THE NEEDLE BAR AND PRESSURE FOOT BAR. ALSO, UNDER THE NEEDLE BAR IS THE COUNTERWEIGHT. IT NEEDS TO BE OILED.
2. TAKE OUT BOBBIN AND BOBBIN CASE. THERE IS A SMALL AREA UNDER THE BOBBIN CASE THAT IT SETS ON. IT LOOKS LIKE A RACE TRACK. CLEAN WITH QTIP AND THEN PUT ONE DROP OF OIL ON IT. PUT PARTS BACK IN PLACE.
3. REMOVE TOP. TURN HAND CRANK TO SEE WHERE METAL TO METAL PARTS ARE RUBBING. PUT OIL ON THOSE PARTS WHILE YOU ROTATE CRANK. THE PARTS THAT ARE PLASTIC: USE TRIFLOW. THIS IS AVAILABLE OVER THE INTERNET.
4. REPLACE TOP.
5. REMOVE BOTTOM:
6. CLEAN PARTS WITH RAGS AND QTIPS.
7. LIKE BEFORE OIL MOVING PARTS THAT ARE METAL AGAINST METAL.
8. THE PARTS THAT ARE PLASTIC: USE TRIFLOW. THIS IS AVAILABLE OVER THE INTERNET.
PARTS USUALLY PLASTIC: COGS ON TOP (MAKE THE ZIG ZAGS), GEARS.
IF CLEANING IS DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF THICK GREASE THEN CARBURETOR CLEANER WORKS VERY WELL.

Where do I put oil drops in my janone 2049, sometimes it gets stuck


Put just one drop of good quality sewing machine oil on moving parts. You can set machine back gently on towel. Remove bottom plate by removing each screw. Set each screw in a bowl so they don't roll anywhere. I have 30 years experience, so I personally run my machines when oiling so I can observe the parts that move. I d on't recommend this if you have pets & children, and leave that up to you! You should probably unplug machine and just look for anything that is NOT a gear, and just put one drop oil on those parts. Singer lubricant should go on actual gears, but ONLY if not already "greasy". Reassemble bottom plate. If your machine left front section opens up, one drop on those moving parts, and smear one drop of oil on hook. One drop top of needle bar. Do NOT oil or lube plastic parts. Never use cooking oil or bath oil; it will coagulate & damage machine. Always run machine with a scrap of fabric for a bit to distribute oil and to make sure excess does not get on your good fabric. Then rethread machine and replace bobbin and put fresh needle in. Yes, removed thread, bobbin, and needle BEFORE you lube & oil. Did this help? Best of days and nights sewing, Jimmy

How often should it be oiled?


sewing machine oil is a very light oil so it does not hang around very long. if you are a heavy user of the machine it is best to oil it every month or so. if when it is stored for a long period it should be oil then too. there are one or 2 bits that need some light greasing too. some 3-1 oil is good for the job and do all the moving parts lightly and not too much oil as it will mark your clothes. hope this helps.

Trying to figure out where to oil my old White 265 machine. the manual only talks about how to oil the bobbin shuttle.


Hi. The rule of thumb is to put one drop (just one drop, that's all it takes) of sewing machine oil wherever two pieces of metal move against each other. You can also look for the oil ports(see tip on where to look for oil ports and for a photo, see www.robbiesews.blogspot.com). Your machine may also have small oil holes in the sewing machine housing, so put one drop of sewing machine oil in each of those.

Please use only sewing machine oil to oil your machine.

Hope this helps!

Where do I put the oil? Are there oil holes? Do you have a diagra


This can vary, depending on the model.

You need to get a manual - not all holes are for oil.

Since you did not provide a model #, here is a site for older models - http://www.berninausa.com/news_detail-n486-r0-i2238-sUS.html

You can also find manuals at sewusa.com

How to oil Spartan 327k sewing machine


Use only sewing machine oil. Get an oiler with a long spout so you can reach far places, put a single drop of oil on every place that has metal moving on metal.

Where do you put oil on a viking rose sewing machine


The only user accessible pert for oil is the rim of the sewing hook. Remove the slide plate, needle plate and the bobbin case and put 1 drop of oil on the hook rim where the bobbin case rests. Wipe off excess oil; only a tiny amount is good, and carefully reassemble. Opening up the machine for internal cleaning and oiling is not recommended except by an experienced tech.

How to oil old featherweight


Hi! I love the old Singer sewing machines!! Do you have the user's manual for your machine? The manual has great diagrams showing where to put oil and grease. If you don't, check out http://www.221parts.com/

In the meantime, look for little holes, often with raised edges and put a drop of oil in each. Put a drop of oil wherever metal moves against metal. You'll need to oil inside the head, on the right-hand side where the motor is located (DON'T oil the motor--use grease instead), and also underneath.

Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Where to oil a Kenmore 158-17600


Remove the top and bottom covers. Turn the wheel and put a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.Also at the ends of each shaft. Open the side cover and oil the needle bar and all the parts inside that move and rub.Put a drop of oil on the hook.Do not put a good piece of fabric in the machine right after you've oiled it. Sew it off on some scraps that you can throw away.
