Question about Sewing Machines
Welcome to FixYa. I'm sure you've figured out that there is too much oil in your machine, or that there is oil in the wrong place. Try getting a big piece of scrap fabric and serging at high speed to try to distribute the excess oil. This might take quite a bit of serging. If this does not help, open the covers so you can see inside the machine and look for the area where the extra oil is pooled. You might need to use a small, strong flashlight to see well. If you find the spot where the oil is leaking - try wrapping a bit of tissue around the end of cotton swab and carefully dip the tissue in the oil until it is saturated. You might need to do this several times (or lots of times), before the excess is removed.
If you need help oiling your machine, please leave a comment, and I'll write a step by step for you.
If you have time, please leave a rating - especially if you think I need to improve my solutions.
Good luck! You'll love your serger once you get everthing worked out.
