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 :)

SOURCE: how to oil my sewing machine

Kenmore machines may have parts and manuals available on searspartsdirect.com -- have the correct model number usually a 3 digit a dot and the rest of the numbers (i.e., 158.xxxx or 385.xxxx1). You will see a list, and if you click on parts or attachments list and scroll down into the parts list, there should be a manual listed as either available or not.

As to the new machines, Euro-Pro or any other, if really cheap, then my personal feeling is that they are planned to not last for a long time -- which may account for the lack of oiling instructions in their manuals. The other possible reason 'may' be that like some Viking Husqvarna machines, the metal parts could be infused with oil and the heat from running them produces the oil needed as it runs. Somehow I doubt that could be the answer in an inexpensive machine. If a lot of the parts inside are plastic, then no oil is needed, and they will run until the plastic breaks, necessitating a trip to the repair shop.

Only use sewing machine oil which can be bought at any JoAnn's, Walmart, sew and vac, or sewing machine dealer. Never use household oil or the yellow/blue can of spray that is a water displacement solution which ultimately will gum up the works. You could use Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant.

Basic oiling procedure is to oil wherever metal parts meet (possible friction points) or slide past each other -- a drop or two usually. No grease needed on plastic gears. If you have an old machine with metal gears, then use sewing machine lube (grease) or Tri-Flow lube (can get it at a bicycle shop if no where else).

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: do i need to oil my baby lock sewing machine?? Quiter's choice.

I cannot find a manual for this machine except at sew4less.com and the price is $14.95.

Contact Babylock to see if they will provide you with a download of the manual - http://www.babylock.com/contact-us/index.asp

If this is a mechanical machine, use sewing machine oil and the shuttle may be the only place it will need to be oil.

Do you need to oil the White Sewing machine model 9800?


get this question a bit frequently from folks,

it usually goes like this:

customer looking at repair bill:
what it needed oil ? but the manual says it doesn't require lubrication !

but I do caution folks on what kind of oil you put in there , most of the newer units have lots of plastic or polymer friction points , these you should not add a petroleum base oil too, as this softens the plastic up (there made of same thing ) instead use a synthetic lubricant these are easier on the plastics found inside modern machines

My manual for the White sewing machine Model 1780


There should be two screws on the top of the machine. Those need to come off first. Most
Whites have a top that comes off in that way. On the hand wheel side there is usually one or two screws to remove that metal piece (below the hand wheel). Then the base should come off just by removing those screws on the bottom. As far as oiling, lubricate any point where two pieces come together and there is movement except the belt area.

How and where to oil my 1780 white quilting machine.


You should contact a White sewing machine dealer. The manual does mention the machine needs regular cleaning and oiling, but provides no direction for oiling. Usually computerized machines are only oiled (one drop) on the race where the bobbin case rests. However, your dealer should be able to advise you.

How to oil a serger?


  1. Unplug your sewing machine.
  2. Step 2 Unthread your sewing machine and remove the bobbin.
    Remove the throat plate. You may need to remove the presser foot and needle to do this, and the throat plate may be held in place with a couple of screws. Every model is different.
  3. Step 3 Use the small cleaning brush that came with your sewing machine, or if it's missing use another similar brush. Brush any fuzz and lint out and away from the machine. Try not to let it fall back into the sewing machine. With the throat plate out you should be able to reach most areas of the machine where lint gets packed. Sometimes if you haven't cleaned this out for a while it gets packed down until it looks like felt. (There is no felt near the working parts of your machine. It's lint build-up. Remove it.)
  4. Step 4 After you have removed all the fuzz you can see, take an aerosol can of air with a tiny tube extender. Insert the tube extender from the some point at the back of the machine and shoot some air so that any fuzz left will blow out towards you. Don't shoot the air into the machine, or you may blow fuzz farther into the machine. Spray in short bursts.
  5. Step 5 Find the oiling diagram in your sewing machine users manual. If you do not have the manual, most older machines require a drop of oil on the hook (the part that moves around the bobbin) perhaps behind the hook, and the needle shaft. One drop of oil is all you need at each point, and then turn the flywheel to move the sewing machine parts and distribute the oil.
  6. Step 6 Many newer sewing machines have sealed electronics, and the only place you need to oil is the hook. Refer to your manual or contact a dealer for specific instructions for electronic models.
  7. Step 7 Replace the needle and presser foot. Replace the bobbin, and thread the machine. Using the scrap of cotton fabric, sew back and forth on the scrap until you are sure there is no excess oil anywhere that could stain a sewing project. Sew on the scrap until all stitches are clean.
  8. Step 8 You should clean and oil your sewing machine after about eight (8) hours of sewing time. If you are sewing with fleece, flannel, or doing machine quilting, you should clean and oil more often since there will be a faster lint build-up.
