No way this machine never needs oiling it is self lubricating eg whilst in use it
lubricates occasionaly wipe inside the race with a lint free cloth with the tiniest drop of oil.

Almost all new, computerized machines do not require oiling. Be sure to clean the lint out of the bobbin area every time you change the bobbing. A pipe cleaner will get into small places. Best bet is to check your manual or talk to your sewing machine repairman. Another hint is to always use good thread--that can save a lot of headaches.

What type of grease do I use on my elna 305 sewing machine.

NO grease!!! Best option is to pick up sewing machine oil sold by Elna--make sure it is the oil recommended for your model. For a computerized machine, apply only as directed in the owner's manual. Computerized machines usually take a clear, thin oil whereas mechanical machines usually take a thicker, lemon-colored oil. To keep your machine purring, AVOID old or inexpensive sewing machine oil. If it is an older mechanical machine, a drop or two can be applied every place where metal rubs against metal--do NOT oil nylon gears, belts, etc.

My singer merrit 4525 sewing macine is making a squealing noise

Caveat! Oil only if your machine is mechanical. If it is computerized, follow the care instructions in the manual. The squealing could be a belt, May be best to take it for service if it continues.

I have an old wizard citation.. it was working great and then it stopped sewing and just makes a noise, but it still works manually.

If it's an old mechanical machine, it has probably seized from old, dried oil that acts like glue on the moving parts. Get some liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and, while manually moving the handwheel, apply a couple drops every place that metal rubs metal. Do NOT oil belts, rubber, or synthetic parts. Then apply hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanics. You may need to repeat the process several times before it moves freely.

Where should I oil my unidentified sewing machine?

Sharon, some machines don't require oiling.
You should read the machine's manual to double check.
Or you could check the machine's manufacture on-line.
Oiling a non-oiled machine can cause all kinds of problems.

How do I oil singer 6230?

This has the self winding bobbin. You need to be careful when oiling. Take the top, left side, and bottom off the machine. Do not oil the gears. They need clear, synthetic grease only. Place one drop of oil where ever metal rubs together. Only use sewing machine oil. NEVER use 3-in-1 oil, or anything else. It turns to a sticky residue, and will freeze your machine. Note, these models have a plastic gear on the lower main shaft that loves to shred. They're great machines, but I would take it to the repair shop, have the gear replaced; the old lubricants removed; and check the bobbin winding mechanism. You may end up spending $150, but will end up with a great machine.

My machine is a fairly new Singer and it suddenly just stopped.i oiled it but the hand wheel will only go backwards, What do I need to know to do next?????

Its a good make although I believe even they are made in china or somewhere, but sewing machines need a careful touch to run properly. If its under warranty take it to a dealer. If its not, take it to a specialist. Who may be the dealer. Best bet for long life and smooth running.
