How do I oil my machine

I don't know how to oil my machine. I don't see any holes at the top to drop the oil in. I have lost the manual, and the company has no support offered on this model. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Need to know where to oil parts in my oldie but goodie Kenmore! Do not have manual. Where can I download a free manual for this model?

If it's an oldie (mechanical), then you can probably remove the top, slowly hand-rotate the handwheel and apply a couple drops of fresh, good quality sewing machine oil every place that metal rubs on metal. Do Not oil plastic, cams, or belts! You may see oil ports (little holes located near joints) where you can apply oil.

Then access the bottom part of the machine and do the same there. Be sure to oil the feed dog mechanism. Apply a drop of oil to the outside of the shuttle.

Move the dials and levers and oil those mechanisms too.

Be sure to run some scrap fabric through the machine in case there is excess oil.

If things are a little sluggish, direct heated air from a handheld hair dryer into the internal mechanics (top & bottom).

Cleaning and oiling your machine frequently will keep it (and you) happy and healthy!

How do I oil it?

There should be at least 2 and maybe 3 holes on top of the machine, the size of ballpoint pen tip. That is where you oil your sewing machine. Two drops into each hole should be sufficient..

Looking to tune up brother CP 6500. Squeaking And skipping occasional stitches. What grease to use and where to apply grease?

No grease please, only quality sewing machine oil. Some machines marked the oil positions with red. Small holes. Else take the top and left side covers of and use just a drop of oil where moving parts are joint. Here too you should find small holes that need a drop now and then.

Is it true that the 14U85 needs 20-30 drops of oil in the top of the Ultralock? I acquired the serger and original manual, and the other holes only require 2-3 drops of oil. Any suggestions before I f

If you are getting that from from the manual... then yes. Sergers are a different critter and need to be well lubed.

for giggles I found this video. It might interest you to know that this "ultra lock" looks a lot like my Juki MO-104 from the same era.

How to oil a singer 457

Every few weeks you should put a drop of oil in the opening of the bobbin case (visible when the bobbin is out) after cleaning that area. (This is to the center front of the bobbin case.)

Every few months, you need to put oil (just a drop) on several points inside the face plate. One spot is high (near the thread take up lever when in its highest position). Then oil the upper shaft of the needle and presser foot mechanism and at the top of the section with the screw midway down the shaft (the farther back). Add a drop of oil at the bottom of the shafts (two spots), Additionally put a drop of oil farther right near the thread path.

Once a year, remove the top cover and place a drop of oil at both holes on the top. (One is near but to the right of the main spool pin; the other is near the thread guide at the take up lever.) Put a drop of oil at the hole at the center right of the deck of the sewing machine (right next to the motor and below the stitch width selector). With the top cover off, there are a number of spots that need oil. One is near the center of the machine at the take up lever (top of shaft). The next is at the center of the stitch width cam. Place another drop of oil at the top of the lever that rests against this cam. Place a drop of oil at the bottom of the lower gear (the one that turns in the horizontal plane). Also oil three points to the right of the vertical gear. (These are the two sections on the shaft to the right of the gear and the point in that same line just to the right of the screw to the back of the area.) Remove the bottom of the sewing machine and oil seven points (three to the left and 4 on the right). Do this carefully - you do not want to get oil on the motor or the belt. These points are on the left: on the shafts near screws at the top and bottom and one spot near the center just in front of the belt. For the points near the screws, the one further up is closer to the left edge of the nachine. On the right side: two points above the belt. One is right next to the belt and one is on the shaft below a screw (this shaft continues to the lowest oiling point on the left side).

The manual for the Singer 457 is available from Singer as a PDF: . See the diagrams starting on page 53 (page 55 of the pdf) for the exact oiling points. I tried to explain these spots but I usually grab the manual for the pictures for my machine for the yearly oiling. You can buy a copy of the manual from Singer for $15 here: . Enter the model number without any extra letters at the end of the model number. Then click Search.

I hope this helps.

How do I oil my Janome 664d overlocker

Does your overlocker have a threading diagram on the inside of the front cover? Often this will also show a couple of red dots where you need to oil.

Obviously always best to consult the manual if you have it; I haven't been able to find an image of the threading or oiling diagram for your machine.

If it doesnt have this diagram and you don't have a manual then I would hazard a guess and say that you need to oil the loopers where they move through another metal part. So open up the front and have a look at the lower looper mechanisim, manually turn the flywheel to move the looper and you should be able to see what I mean. The lower looper will move back and forwards through a metal socket piece and the looper bar may look lubricated on each side. So give the metal holding bit a drop and the oil should work into it. There may be a similar looking bit for the top looper, have a look and give it a drop of oil.

Some overlockers will have an oiling point at the back of the sewing table, it may be a little hole marked with red paint.

How to oil old featherweight

Hi! I love the old Singer sewing machines!! Do you have the user's manual for your machine? The manual has great diagrams showing where to put oil and grease. If you don't, check out

In the meantime, look for little holes, often with raised edges and put a drop of oil in each. Put a drop of oil wherever metal moves against metal. You'll need to oil inside the head, on the right-hand side where the motor is located (DON'T oil the motor--use grease instead), and also underneath.

Good luck and let me know how it goes.

My old Kenmore sewing machine makes a loud squealing noise.

It sounds as if your machine needs a little oiling. If you have a clear machine oil (not 3 in 1). place a drop in the bobbin case area and if you will notice, you will see small holes on the bed and on the top of the machine. place a drop of oil into each of these holes. If you can take the top and bottom covers off, you can put a drop of oil every where you see a hole..some of the machines actually have the oil holes painted a red color. Also place a drop at the handwheel as well. Just remember when oiling, less is better. After oiling, run for a few minutes, if you feel it still needs a litte more, do the same, one drop at a time. After this, if you machine sets for a while, oil just before starting to sew, that way when you put the machine away the oil has been worked through and it should help prevent the squeaking when starting up again.
