Question about Sewing Machines
My manual says nothing about oiling my Singer 5932. Should this be part of regular maintenance and if so, how and where do I oil the machine?

There should be little holes on the top of the machine, an opening near the bobbin winder and one on the base of the machine about 3 inches from the face place. Also, you can open the bobbin area to put a couple of drops down inside there. The best utensil to clean the machine (especially near bobbin) is a bird feather. The bend easily around corners with out breaking.

You can get a free download from Singer. The maintenance section should have the information you are looking for.

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!"
