Check your user manual. More than likely there are a couple of holes along the lower part of the machine where the material goes (throat of the machine). Usually oil goes in those holes but only a drop. The best oil is from the bicyle shop used to oil chains--Tri-Flow. I have a huskystar 217 for 5 years and have never felt that it needed oiling. Sews like a gem.
i believe you need to break that circut
if you cant find the working foot pedal
maybe you could use a tattoo machine gem footpedal
they are breakers fairly cheap online and very manuverable when in tight spaces....
Janome Gem are self lubricating. Silicon is embedded in the gears and releases as it runs. If the machine is put away and not run every so often it will lock up. The hand wheel may have thread caught up around it. The Gems aren't assembled to be dissembled except to change the light bulb.
Even if you have the instruction manual supplied with the machine as the pdf has colour images that make it easier to follow rather than the over exposed black and white splodges in the supplied paper manual.
