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.

SOURCE: my sewing machine keeps getting jammed when

Hello,
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
sew.

* 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.

As for the bobbin thread not picking up it could be your hook timing is off. Do you know how to adjust this?

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
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/singer/7442.html

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!"

I have Janome 644d overlocker. The handwheel is stuck cannot even turn it manually


How long has it been since the last professional maintenance? Could very well be that it needs a good oiling and cleaning. Mechanical machines require frequent oiling to keep them operating. Overlockers probably require more frequent oiling than sewing machines because they sew so much faster that the moving parts dry out quickly. Even though you probably oil the basic external spots of the machine, there are multiple areas that are hidden under the case that need oiling as well.

Overlock problems


it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see what's causing the squeeking problem and what's causing the pedal to get hot.

I dont know where to put oill in my machine?


There are no places for you to oil, the machine does need oil though. It needs to be taken apart by a tech every 2 years or so for lubrication

HOW TO TAKE APART 385.19233 SEWING MACHINE


Unplug sewing machine.
Tip machine gently back onto a towel and use a screw driver to remove screws on bottom plate.
If you wish to oil your machine, only oil moving parts with good quality sewing machine oil - no more then one drop. The gears can be greased with Singer lubricant. Of course, never use cooking oil or body oil to oil or grease machine as this can coagulate in the machine and damage it.I hope this helps.

Kenmore sewing machine that squeeks when I sew.


Yes, you need to oil your machine. If you have your manual, it should give you the spots that need to be oiled. You use sewing machine oil that you can get at Walmart or JoAnn fabrics. Also, if you take the plate off, all the fuz from the polar fleece is probably around the feed dogs. A drop of oil on the feed dog area would probably help. Just make sure the oil isn't on the surface to get on your fabric. :) Pretty much, if it's a moving part, I oil it. It's best to follow the manual though.

Huskystar squeeks when sewing


They occasionally need oiling. You should have received a tube of oil when the machine was purchased. If you don't have any, try to find Tri Flow oil available at bicycle shops or Amazon.com. If you are unable to find it, you can use machine oil but not 3n1 oil. These are excellent machines and I still have mine. It may be well worth having it serviced at an authorized husqvarna viking dealer. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Machine sews only in reverse


Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.
