In the instruction manual it should show you where you need to put the oil. What sort of noise is it making as there may be a different problem such as stuff caught in the bobbin race

SOURCE: where do i oil my machine?

A lot of the newer computer models don't seem to recommend oiling. I went to the manufacters website for my machine- brother pc-420- to find out, because like you, there were no indications in my manual. Brother website informed machine was oiled plenty already and advised oiling could cause damage. Seems like a way to put services centers back in business if you ask me! My advice would be to call Simplicity and see what they have to say about maintenance. In the meantime I will be making the same call to Brother. Hope we both stay out of repairs. Good luck! =)

SOURCE: Should the Simplicity SE3 embroidery

If the manual doesnt mention oiling at all, then it probably has silicon or nylon parts not needing lubrication. It may also have oiling wicks which the technican will attend do during the regular services that the manufacturer probably recommends annually in the manual.

You do need to clean out the bobbin area regularly though and your manual should mention this, lint will build up in any sewing machine and affect perforance.

SOURCE: Can I use a Bernina

Unfortunately these cards are not interchangeable due to proprietary reading/writing software. This is used by the industry to prevent customers from changing brands once they've invested in a library of embroidery designs. However there is a company that makes it possible to transfer information from one type of card to another. I haven't used their product but it may be the solution to your problem.

I bought a "Little Max". It works great. Be sure to get a blank card for it so you can save what you download.
