SOURCE: how to oil my sewing machine

Kenmore machines may have parts and manuals available on -- have the correct model number usually a 3 digit a dot and the rest of the numbers (i.e., 158.xxxx or 385.xxxx1). You will see a list, and if you click on parts or attachments list and scroll down into the parts list, there should be a manual listed as either available or not.

As to the new machines, Euro-Pro or any other, if really cheap, then my personal feeling is that they are planned to not last for a long time -- which may account for the lack of oiling instructions in their manuals. The other possible reason 'may' be that like some Viking Husqvarna machines, the metal parts could be infused with oil and the heat from running them produces the oil needed as it runs. Somehow I doubt that could be the answer in an inexpensive machine. If a lot of the parts inside are plastic, then no oil is needed, and they will run until the plastic breaks, necessitating a trip to the repair shop.

Only use sewing machine oil which can be bought at any JoAnn's, Walmart, sew and vac, or sewing machine dealer. Never use household oil or the yellow/blue can of spray that is a water displacement solution which ultimately will gum up the works. You could use Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant.

Basic oiling procedure is to oil wherever metal parts meet (possible friction points) or slide past each other -- a drop or two usually. No grease needed on plastic gears. If you have an old machine with metal gears, then use sewing machine lube (grease) or Tri-Flow lube (can get it at a bicycle shop if no where else).

You can only oil the parts that you can see on that machine.

Put in place for oiling machine

Difficult to advise without knowing the make/model.

First, consult your owner's manual. It will have directions on how and where to oil your machine. Oiling the machine in the wrong place could cause damage. Be sure to use fresh, good quality oil recommended for your sewing machine (NO WD-40, cooking oil, old stinky brown stuff in the can, household oil, motor oil). Apply only 1-2 drops each spot specified. Repeat every time you start a new project or every 6 months if the machine is not in regular use.

I need to know where to oil it

Hi. First of all, it depends on what kind of sewing machine you have. Every machine has its own places to put oil. Once you know the make and model, if you don't have the manual for it, you can look it up online. Many manuals are free to read and/or download. Follow the guidelines in the manual to know how and when to oil your machine. Alternately, you can ask the people at the local sewing or fabric store to show you.
I hope this helps!

Where do you add oil to the simplicity embroidery machine?

In the instruction manual it should show you where you need to put the oil. What sort of noise is it making as there may be a different problem such as stuff caught in the bobbin race

Where do i put the oil in my singer 4525


Place a tiny drop of sewing machine oil in each of the oil spots on your sewing machine. Your manual will show you exactly where these are located, or they will be marked on your machine.

If it isnt marked and you do not have a manual then One drop on all moving metal parts should do it.

Turn the hand wheel several times to distribute the oil.

NOTE; If there are no oiling instructions, DO NOT oil the machine. It probably has sintered bearings (made from metal with oil impregnated in them), and plastic gears, and will be lubricated as necessary during the annual service.

Sintered bearings DO eventually run dry, but they then need to be taken right out of the machine and be re-soaked in oil, sometimes under pressure.

I think that you need your manual to show you, go to, go to support and download a free manual. Now you will see on page 82, I think, it will show your exactly where to put the machine oil. Only use sewing machine oil.

I have a Janome 4052LX200. Nowhere in my owner's manual does it say where and/or how to oil the machine. Can you tell me?

If the manual does''t say anything about oiling machine don't. Usually when you take in for a service it is done then. But always keep it clean with a brush.

Squeeky machine

I looked at the basic manual for your machine here: (type the model number in the manual search box) and it doesn't show exactly where to oil. If you can get a small can of light oil with a fine spout (like 3 in 1 or similar) then just put a tiny drop of oil on each pivot and spindle. You should be able to see where there was once oil before. Use only a tiny amount or it will make a mess.
