Singer in their wisdom have taken that task away from the home user when they started going to plastic parts and such. You won't find schematics or adjusters manuals unless you get lucky and some sew-guy has made one up via his tinkering.

The only thing I can offer is. Oil where metal meets metal, Lightly grease where metal meets plastic or plastic meets plastic. (be sure to get the right kind of grease.)

Sorry couldn't find a free manual - check here though, they are only $10; 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; These guys are also worth a try; 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 :)

SOURCE: singer 328k bobbin winder replacement

Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.

Most every machine has an oiling diagram in the instructions but if yours is gone then don't be afraid to take the covers loose and oil anywhere 2 moving metal parts come togeather but only a drop. Over-oiling will cause a heavy collection of lint and dirt possibly causing damage later on. Don't be afraid to remove the covers, just put them back on the way they came off. While your at it, give it a good vacuum, or blow and brush it out. Good luck.
