Sorry couldn't find a free manual - check here though, they are only $10; http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/kenmore_Sewing_Machines_385.htm although they dont have the exact manual for your model, the oiling instructions should be the same for all the 385 models. it is a good site - you can contact them direct for more info and you might get lucky; http://www.sewusa.com/index.htm These guys are also worth a try; http://www.sew4less.com/manuals.php They claim to offer a manual for your exact model, but the picture shows a generic manual which they say will offer the same info Hope this helps, good luck, please post again if you need more help :)

Does the Elna 3007 electronic sewing machine have any place that I can oil it.No instructions to be found in the manual which I still have in a notebook after 15 years--love the machine.


If the manual does not mention oiling, I would be hesitant to do any without guidance, although most machines do require some oiling. You machine most like has some computerized components that could be damaged. If you haven't had it serviced in the 15 years you've had it, then it would be a good idea to have that done. Perhaps you can ask the tech if you should do any oiling along with the regular cleaning you perform at home.

What about Oiling?


If you look at the Oiling Instructions in the owner's manual, it has a picture of where the oil should be applied. Only one or two drops!! It should probably be oiled frequently--about every 8 hours of sewing time. Pfaff probably sells a sewing machine oil for your machine. Just tell them your machine model and they should know what you need. Do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the old stinky brown stuff from grandma's sewing basket!

Where should I clean and oil an unidentified sewing machine?


cleaning out any machine is good , as most don't get \done get done to often , id be cautious on oiling a machine and only use a oil spec'd by the mfg. as some oils can soften and damage gears and such on some machines , oils should always be used sparingly and not left to drip down inside to points unknown , me id prefer to use caning wax for lubrication, as it never runs from where you put it like oils will

Can't find anything in the manual about oiling the sewing machine for my euro-pro 464xc


I have a Janome which does not need oiling. I can't explain this, but I've had the machine for 20 years and I clean it often, but no oiling. I found this statement below on another website:
"Many new modern machines don't need oiling. Indeed, oiling can wreck them by attracting lint and dirt to the places where it can damage the machine. Check the instruction manual that comes with the machine and follow the instructions carefully. If there are no oiling instructions in the manual then don't oil the machine -it doesn't need oil. If you think there's a mechanical issue that can be solved by lubrication then take the machine to a repair shop and have a pro look at it, it could be in a place where you can't get to without a pros help -or it could be something else entirely -like build up of dirt or lint." from: http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110609192222AANV9DF

I have a Janome Sewist 525 and I love it, I've had for about 3 years and never had any problems. I have a question though. I have the manual that came with it and nowhere in the entire manual does it say...


some machine are self oiling, when they are run & they parts get warm to hot then the oil come out of the parts & it's self oil.
contact a janome dealer & ask if your model is self oiling

Should I oil my Elna 3005 sewing machine?


Many of the new models do not require oiling.

Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.

If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.
