Most machines need periodic lubrication (oil, grease, or both) and typically the external covers will have to be removed to get at the parts that need the lubrication.

Should I oil the motor on a kenmore sewing machine model 158.905?

Do NOT oil the motor unless the manual instructs you to do so. (Sears carries manuals for most of their machines.)

Your machine appears to be an older mechanical machine. As such, oiling would be necessary for the moving metal parts. The following may be helpful to keep your mechanical machine happily operating. (Although the following is for machines that have seized due to lack of oil, following the procedure is helpful in preventing the machine from seizing.)

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

I have an old Kenmore 1620 sewing machine, which worked fine until last week. After I routinely oiled it, the needle now doesn't move until I first turn the wheel manually.

You got oil in the wrong area and now have lost the necessary friction in the drive mechanism.

Time to undo what you done did!!!!!!!!

Machine squeaks when sewing

Is it a mechanical machine (NOT computerized)?

Do this ONLY if it is MECHANICAL. Remove the top lid and the freearm cover (if no free arm, then you'll have to tilt the machine so you can access the lower mechanism).

Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil. While handrotating the handwheel, watch where metal parts move against other metal parts and apply 1-2 drops of oil. Do NOT oil plastic, rubber, or leather parts as oil will eventually destroy them.

Be sure to oil the moving parts in the lower mechanism as well. Hopefully this will take care of the squeak and get your machine operating 100% again.

I have a model #9120. It's sewing perfect stitches, but it started running very slowly. I cleaned all the lint out under the bobbin, but its still running slowly. What else can I do? My manual says...

Hello, if the manual say not to oil it then don't, some machines parts are soaked in the oil & the more the machine is used when the parts get hot the oil come out of the parts & lubricates them

if the machine is running slow, it could be the motor going out, power cord or foot pedal,
when was the last time it was serviced? they need servicing at least once a year

Where do i put the oil in my singer 4525


Place a tiny drop of sewing machine oil in each of the oil spots on your sewing machine. Your manual will show you exactly where these are located, or they will be marked on your machine.

If it isnt marked and you do not have a manual then One drop on all moving metal parts should do it.

Turn the hand wheel several times to distribute the oil.

NOTE; If there are no oiling instructions, DO NOT oil the machine. It probably has sintered bearings (made from metal with oil impregnated in them), and plastic gears, and will be lubricated as necessary during the annual service.

Sintered bearings DO eventually run dry, but they then need to be taken right out of the machine and be re-soaked in oil, sometimes under pressure.

Where do I put the oil in my overlocker?

You don't specify the make/model - it is always best to obtain a manual for you rmachine to ensure that you are oiling in the necessary spots to ensure longevity.

Generally though, you would open up the front flap/s of your overlocker and brush out around the lower loopers and blades to remove all the lint build up before starting a new project. Then add a drop of oil to any of the metal on metal moving parts in this area. The blades also benefit from a small drop of oil.

Try for sewing machine and overlocker manuals.

I don't think you do! There are no instructions in the manual. A while ago my machine sounded funny so I took it in for a service that cost $100! I think Janome have deliberately omitted this information to force sewers into taking machines to recognised mechanics. My machine sounds rough again.

Have singer sewing machine that the tension on the bobbin isn't very good no matter what i turn the tension to. the model # is 221K1 or 221-1 it seems like it is also needing oiled down there but don't...

99% of the time its not the bobbin tension its the tension on the upper thread that is off. Try rethreading the machine and then adjuat the upper tension slowly if needed. The bobbin area does need to be cleaned quite often usually every 8 to 10 hours of sewing and its simple to do. Remove the bobbin and look closley at the bobbin casing there are two latches holding it to your machine, one on either side you push them gently to the side and the case will come out, clean and oil entire area and replace the case and push the latches back into place and then replace bobbin in machine aalways use scrap material for a few minutes to make sure everything is good to go and that no oil gets on you project. any machine oil is ok to use its not necessary to use sewing machine oil and a small bottle will last for a long time.

Is this a Janome MemoryCraft 9000? (I ask because the models seem to get mixed up in the threads)

If so, you can more than likely find accessories for the MC9000 either on eBay, your local Janome dealer (you can find the closest one to you @ Janome's website using the "Dealer Locator" feature) or even ... SEARS!

Sears contracted Janome to make several of their sewing machines (I think Janome might still be the actual manufacturer, but aren't 100% sure) and so the parts are compatible. You can even use a Kenmore Memory Card with a Janome MC9000.

As for oiling, if it's the MC9000 (much like practically all newer models) they don't need oiling. Though sometimes, you can dab a teeny-tiny amount of oil on the bobbin case if it needs it.
