Pfaff 297-1 sewing machine runs very slow.


Your machine appears to be mechanical, not computerized. If so, more than likely your machine needs a thorough cleaning and oiling.

Might be best to take it for a standard service.

If you have the patience and time, you can try fixing it yourself. Consult your owner's manual, clean as instructed, and using Fresh good quality sewing machine oil, apply 1-2 drops as directed.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

In the future, be sure to clean and oil regularly (every 40 hours of sewing, every 6 months if not in use). Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil, applying 1-2 drops of oil each spot. Consult the owner's manual for instructions.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight. Hard to turn.


Is your sewing machine mechanical (ie, not computerized)??? CAUTION--if your machine is computerized, do NOT proceed with the following suggestions.

If it is mechanical, have you cleaned and oiled your machine recently? Most mechanical sewing machine failures are because they have not been adequately and routinely oiled, the old oil has solidified and frozen the mechanics. I recommend Bernina oil, liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (or similar good quality sewing machine oil) for mechanical machines--do NOT use 3-in-1, cooking oil, WD-40, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket. (I am not associated with any Bernina dealer, other than a customer.)

If it is in fact frozen, pick up a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store. Oil one or two drops in every oil hole (see your manual) and also every place where metal rubs on metal. But DO NOT oil any plastic gears, rubber, or belts. It is probably best to avoid oiling the metal cams. If it is still stiff or frozen, direct a hot handheld hair dryer into the top and bottom mechanism of your machine. See if that loosens it up. You may have to repeat.

Once your machine is working again, place a drop or two of good sewing machine oil as directed above. Be sure to use a small brush to clean the lint and dirt out of your machine, especially around the feed dogs and bobbin area. (Caution: Compressed air will sometimes force the dirt and lint into areas that cannot be cleaned.) And continue to use good quality sewing machine oil to keep it running. Recommendation: every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of sewing, or every six months if it is not in regular use.

=======
To find a manual:
Search the internet for "Kenmore 158.12511 Manual" You'll probably find a downloadable pdf manual (or at least one similar to your machine). Be very CAREFUL that they are not scam web sites (one wanted me to upgrade Acrobat when I just did it a couple days ago!) Here's one for $5.95-- http://www.sewconsult.com/kenmore/158%20manuals/kenmore_158_source_manuals.htm

or one for $4.99-- http://manualsoncd.com/product/kenmore-model-158-1212-1341-series-sewing-instruction-manual/

Here's one currently on eBay for $8.94--
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sewing-Machine-Manual-Sears-Kenmore-1251-158-12510-and-158-12511-on-cd-/281847997472?hash=item419f732420:g:czAAAMXQPatTJ4FF

On the other hand, if you can find a manual from Sears, that is probably the most reliable (unless you can find a used manual on eBay, Etsy...) $15 isn't such a bad price if it helps you keep your machine running and reduces your frustration. You might also check Yahoo Groups for a Kenmore Users Group. Frequently, Group members will post those documents in the Group files or someone might have one that they no longer want.

How do you oil the singer xl.1000


You should never oil a computerized (electronic) sewing machine. You do need to clean the lint from it at intervals. Singer has the instruction manual available on their support site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/8332a66e46ddc22f7bc62f0139bf8fbd03c55b23.pdf . See page 113 (114 of the PDF) for the cleaning information.

I hope this helps.

(I have used mechanical sewing machines which need regular oiling and greasing. The computerized systems are pre-lubricated at the factory and that lubrication should last the machine's lifetime.)

The wheel is completely stck and will not turn. I was sewing and everything was fine and then all of sudden this happened...i took apart and cleaned....can't figure it out.


Check the top shaft bearings. Have similar problem on another computerized model. Top right bearing was completely stuck. Using Liquid Wrench to unfreeze it. Afterwards use sintered bearing oil like Tri-Flow to lubricate bearing.

I have a Janome Magnolia 7330. How do you open it up to clean and oil it?


If it is computerized, they are generally sealed so they cannot be opened by the user. There are computerized components that could easily be damaged. The manual should have instructions how to maintain your machine. AVOID using compressed air as it tends to push lint and dirt further into the machine where only a technician can clean.

Janome 6500


Under the cover of your machine where the feet are stored, on the right side,front of your machine is a round button which controls the brightness of your display. It was probably moved during cleaning.

Izek Speed Control


Have you tried removing the batteries and cartridge and re-intalling? Also I learned the pressure foot must be down for my izek to accept setting changes. Hope this helps.
