Above is a link which address the viscosity of cooking oils. As far as using cooking oil in an engine for lubrication, do a search on the subject. You'll get quit a few hits on the subject. " cooking oil in the crankcase". I think the answer to your question is no. Cooking oil will break down quickly from the engine heat. Here are a few statements regarding engine oil that I do not think cooking oil will achieve;
"Modern oils protect against corrosion and sludge formation, and contain detergent additives to keep the engine clean." "The oil also holds the by-products of combustion, like soot particles, in suspension so they don't clog up the engine. " .

No, cooking oil breaks down at a much lower temp. You can use it for a few seconds, maybe even minutes, but soon your engine will be garbage!

Do i need to oil my necchi sewing machine? if so how? i have a model 4825.


The following web site indicates the machine should be "lubricated as needed." So, you should probably consult the owner's manual. Your machine is computerized which means there is usually limited oiling required, perhaps the hook.

Necchi 4825 Review Sewing Insight

Be sure to use good quality sewing machine oil recommended for your machine (NOT 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, etc.)

Necchi 535FA is stuck in reverse, no matter what adjustments I change. I oiled and cleaned it and properly threaded it. Everything seems to work and move fine, except the reverse button was stuck.


A part of the Reverse Button mechanism is probably frozen.

This may work:
Direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism and let the metal parts get pretty hot. (Don't burn your fingers!) Then try the reverse button to see if it has loosened. Repeat and hopefully it will begin working. If you figure out where the reverse button mechanism is located, you can try lubricating the metal joints--ONLY 1-2 drops of GOOD quality sewing machine oil (do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or OLD sewing machine oil). Then try the hairdryer again. Do NOT oil plastic parts or belts unless directed to in the owner's manual instructions.

Vintage Sewing Machines

To keep your machine sewing well, be sure to clean and oil on a regular basis--about every 8-12 hours of continuous sewing, every time you empty a bobbin, or if it's not in frequent use, every six months. Oil drying out is a frequent cause of machine moving parts freezing.

My needle is not movin up or down..switched to zig zag and it moved left and right but no up and down..Im lost without it..whats wrong and how do i fix it? Bernina 1090 s


Have you oiled your Bernina recently/regularly? Consult your owner's manual under the Maintenance section. Sounds like the old oil may have dried and is prohibiting the needle bar from moving. Use good quality (ie Bernina) oil, not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket). To help free it up, direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanism of the machine, concentrating on the needle bar area.

I have a bernina 801 sewing machine. I am unable to dis engage the wheel to reload the bobbin, it will not turn


Have you ever lubricated it? Sewing machines must be periodically cleaned and lubricated or they will get stuck and freeze up

Why wont my machine move?


If it's been sitting unused for a long time, the lubricating oil will have evaporated and turned to varnish. Use only sewing machine oil to lubricate it after carefully cleaning and loosening all the moving parts. Forcing it will break something expensive.

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.

I just need to know where to put the oil in my PFAFF 7570?


Around the bobbin track, a drop should do. Anywhere else uses a different viscosity oil and grease. If you oil parts besides the above mentioned, you have lint build up and that's going to slow things down.
