Question about Janome Memory Craft 5700
My Janome 6600 has started to squeak. It sounds like it is coming from the gear that turns to move the needle up and down.
The manual gives NO instructions about oiling. Can anybody tell me how? I hate to bring my machine in and be without it for two weeks just to be cleaned and oiled.
Remove the plate and bobbin case, beneath it will be a small round hole in the center. Inside the hole is a fluffy piece of absorbant material called the wick. DO NOT REMOVE IT! Place one drop of sewing machine oil on the wick. While you have the machine opened up, you should remove all the dust. I use the small brush that comes with the machine. Replace the bobbin case and make sure that it is clean too. Replace the plate. Lastly add a couple of drops of sewing machine oil to a q-tip and use it to apply oil to the needle bar above the needle clamp.
If your machine continues to squeek then bring it to a professional sewing machine repair technician and pay for the service to have it professionally cleaned and tune up. It is not worth damaging you machine over a few dollars well spent.
