Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Janome 3022 I need to know where and if I need to oil this sewing machine. It's computerized machine. The manual says nothing about oiling, only to clean out lint and dust.

    Every other machine I know requires routine oiling. This one has no mention of where to put oil. Should it be oiled at all?

ALL machines will require lubrication at some point.It will require covers to be removed however. Apart from the cover over the needle bar / presser foot area, I dont recommend you try taking them off as without knowledge of exactly how, you can break the retaining clips. Cleaning out the lint REGULARLY is very important - you can use a vacuum with a crevice tool.

So, remove the 'lamp' cover and needle plate, vacuum out thoroughly. Apply a drop in total to the length of the needle bar, a small amount on the presser foot shaft.Remove the black plastic shuttle, clean around it, apply a SMIDGE of oill to the 'track' on the underside of it. Thats about all you will have access to. Use proper sewing machine oil - NOTHING ELSE!

If you sew a lot, get it serviced proffessionally - they will do the areas you can't access.

Good luck!

Oiling the janome sewing machine?

Follow the instructions in the manual, especially if it is a computerized machine. These machines require little, if any, oiling. Additional oiling can damage the machine.

Mechanical machines--use only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Gently wiggle the handwheel and apply a drop or two of oil every place that metal rubs against metal.

Which parts on my Harmony 8080 (Janome) sewing machine do I oil.

Do you have a manual? Most Janomes have a sealed oil system meaning you don't ever oil anything besides the little wick under the bobbin case, just one drop now and then.

How do i oil my janome mc 9500?

In the instruction book, it does not say that you need to oil your machine, but most dealers suggest oiling once every 8-10 hours of sewing.

You can put one drop of oil on the wick that is located under your bobbin case. If you don't have any get a bottle of sewing machine oil from your dealer or any sewing machine dealer close to you. Remember, you only need the smallest amount of oil.

Please let me know if this was helpful to you by rating my solution.

Have a great day!
