Question about Singer Featherweight 140Q
There seems to be no mention of where to oil the machine in the owners manual. Or even any mention that lubricating is part of regular maintenance but it sure sounds like it needs some.
Hi. No, don't use WD40 oil to lubricate your Singer. Use sewing machine oil--it's a whole different breed of animal than WD40 and won't hurt your machine. You can easily find sewing machine oil at Jo-ann's, Hancock's, or any other local fabric and/or craft store. It's not expensive, but repairing the insides of a machine gummed up from WD40 IS!
Good luck and let me know how this works.

These might give you an idea on cleaning and oiling your machine - I also use my vaccum cleaner sometimes- but very carefully.
Always use sewing machine oil - singer brand is good. - If you have pipe cleaners they are good to use on hard to reach places.

You can get a free download from Singer. The maintenance section should have the information you are looking for.
