Oil is placed where there are two pieces of metal rubbing together. 1. You must look for moving parts while moving the hand wheel. 2. There are some holes on the frame to give you access areas that need to be oiled.. 3. The bobbin rides on an indented area called the race. Place one drop at this location frequently. 4. The motion of the needle arm going up and down between two holes needs to be oiled. 5. The pressure foot has a movement of a steel tube (arm) that needs oiled every now and then. The up and down motion of the pressure foot switch has two pieces of steel rubbing together in order to raise and lower the foot. It is important to oil here and on the spring that is inside the tube. Anyway; make sure you look for steel against steel and oil it.
Tension generally does not affect the feed unless it is way too tight. Most reasons for fabric not advancing under the presser foot is that the feed dogs have been dropped for darning. If the feed dogs are operating properly, as the handwheel turns the feed dogs should rise above the plate, move toward the back of the machine pulling the fabric, drop down, come forward and rise again.
The other possibility is that the presser foot pressure has been released so the presser foot is not holding the fabric down on the feed dogs. Some machines have a spring-loaded knob on the top of the machine, a dial, or something to adjust the amount of pressure the foot applies. Consult your owner's manual.
Have you actually starting stitching a seam after sliding the feed dog control back to normal position?
In most cases, the feed dogs don't magically pop up until the machine has moved through a stitch sequence.
Put a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure foot, then turn the flywheel towards you two or three turns or use the needle up, needle down control button to make a couple of stitches - this should get them back.
Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.
Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.
You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.
You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/simplicity-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.
If you go to the Simplicity Homecare website and click on Accessories, that will take you to their e-store for parts. I broke an upper looper needle on my SW432 last Saturday, ordered on Wednesday, and already have the replacement!
