I looked at the basic manual for your machine here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html (type the model number in the manual search box) and it doesn't show exactly where to oil. If you can get a small can of light oil with a fine spout (like 3 in 1 or similar) then just put a tiny drop of oil on each pivot and spindle. You should be able to see where there was once oil before. Use only a tiny amount or it will make a mess.

Here are a couple of things to try.
* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.
* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.
I hope this helps.

It would be wise to have the machine cleaned & serviced. Do you have a manual for it? Did it come with oil at one time? I found a free manual at
You have to register (free)...choose to skip the popups (2)...and you can save the manual to your hard drive.
I checked the manual...you don't need to oil the machine...but page 61-63 shows cleaning...and it's basic. You take the two screws from the throat plate, remove the bobbin case & brush the inside of the machine bed out...I use a small artists plastic bristle brush, or a small childs tooth brush.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Hi, thanks a lot. I don't know if it came with the oil, we assumed that it maybe needs oil (my father knew this from the old machines ;-) ) Again thank you very much for your quick answer!"
