Question about Janome Jem Gold 660 Sewing Machine

Oiling my Janome Gem Gold

Where are the correct places to oil my machine? What about lubrication on the hand wheel? The motor seems to "groan" a bit when I begin to sew, and needs a nudge with the hand wheel to get started. What might be going on with that?

Thank you.

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.

Can't find anything in the manual about oiling the sewing machine for my euro-pro 464xc


I have a Janome which does not need oiling. I can't explain this, but I've had the machine for 20 years and I clean it often, but no oiling. I found this statement below on another website:
"Many new modern machines don't need oiling. Indeed, oiling can wreck them by attracting lint and dirt to the places where it can damage the machine. Check the instruction manual that comes with the machine and follow the instructions carefully. If there are no oiling instructions in the manual then don't oil the machine -it doesn't need oil. If you think there's a mechanical issue that can be solved by lubrication then take the machine to a repair shop and have a pro look at it, it could be in a place where you can't get to without a pros help -or it could be something else entirely -like build up of dirt or lint." from: http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110609192222AANV9DF

My jenome gem has suddenly started making growling "labored" sound; nearly unable to turn wheel by hand for fear of breaking something inside the machine. husband cleaned & applied oil


Check for a local sewing machine repair shop. Some shops will give you a free or low cost estimate for repair. It sounds like something is binding (growling sound) and you need to have a repair person look at it before it becomes an expensive problem. Better to be safe than sorry.

Needle wont go up and down.


well,it seem that your upper camshaft was stuck due to several factor on mechanical linkages and maybe on gears.You have to isolate the checking since you have clean lower bobbins free from dirt and thread/fabrics chips.If there an opening on top of machine open it to check some mechanical destorsion or breakage.Check some broken gears inside.If nothing try to open also at the bottom of machine cover and there are also belt and gears connected to the motors and bobbins shuttle holder if so oil all shafting oil port,oil port bushing specially on bushing near hand wheel there is port for oil,
check also motor assembly of machine,you can disconnect belt from motor release the bolt holding motor adjust to lower tension belt and release the belt.Take some tools such as monkey pliers or small pipe wrench that can hold hand wheel just crack in order to move suddenly after oiling for several hours sometime bushing and shafting rushes emerged or if you have anti rush spray put in on.After cracking and you can move a little crack only by your hand several time lleft and right until all linkages free from rush.If you can move all parts and hand wheel rotate freely.Check also motor by rotating the small pulley conncted to motor if free to move.if ok put back and reassembly all parts disconnected.try to move again by hand if free to move after all asssembly.Run machine using foot pedal.

Taking care of my machine


Almost all new, computerized machines do not require oiling. Be sure to clean the lint out of the bobbin area every time you change the bobbing. A pipe cleaner will get into small places. Best bet is to check your manual or talk to your sewing machine repairman. Another hint is to always use good thread--that can save a lot of headaches.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....

Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!
