Sewing machines take a very light weight oil. I have found if you don't have access to wholesale distributors. You can find machine oil by the quart at Rochford supply, they have website. Hope this helps.

How do I put oil in tank under machine

There should be a "pan" under your machine that holds the oil. Use only sewing machine oil from your dealer. I use a clear oil so that if I should get a drop on an item it won't stain it. Put the palm of your hand on the front of your machine and push the whole metal body of the machine backward until it rests on the wooden peg behind it (this peg is about 3-4" tall and is immediately behind the body in the table top. Be careful not to damage the computer panel on top of your machine. You will probably need to move the thread stand out of the way before you push the machine back.

Once the machine is back you should be able to see the lines in the metal pan under the machine that shows how deep to fill the oil. Pour oil in the pan up to the full mark. Mine takes a little over a pint. Carefully reseat the sewing machine, and run the machine at a quick pace either with or without material in it, to get the oil circulating in the body of the machine. Don't run this machine without oil. If it gets too dry it can "seize up" and possibly ruin this wonderful machine. When you are pushing the head back or pulling it forward to reseat it, make sure you only do it on the metal parts of the machine and not on the computer panel to avoid ruining your computer by breaking it loose from the machine.

As a caution: If you run your machine without material to circulate the oil, raise the foot first to avoid damage to the feet and pull your thread out of your needle to avoid tangling the thread in the bobbin and having to untangle it before you sew.
Good Luck! Happy Sewing.

Can i use a clear synthetic motor oil to lubricate my Singer industrial sewing machine?

Because I expect you are using it for home use I will tell you this. Users of this machine may have a mess from the oil pan. Take the oil pan off. A man I worked on began to use synthetic grease on a regular time frame such as 100000 stitches. This prevents the mess from the oil pan. It appears as a powder but will adhere to the gears. I wouldn't use synthetic motor oil because it doesn't stick too well. Anyway, this is only a suggestion. The nice thing about this is it comes in a spray can at Walmart

Consult your owner's manual and oil ONLY as instructed. Be sure to use good quality sewing machine oil as recommended (NOT old oil from your grandmother's sewing basket, 3-in-1 oil, WD40, or cooking oil).

My Bernina 730 record can only run the zig-zag stitch. The tech said the motor was "weak". Will replacing the brushes in the motor fix the stitch problem?

Sewing machines needs full service now and then (every 10 years will often do). The motor on the 730 series is actually as powerful as they get on domestic machines, and handles just about everything that fits under the pressure foot. Only if the machine has been used a lot over the years are the brushes worn down, but it might need new grease not matter how little it has been used. 

However, the stitch applications can sort of gum or clog up if the machine has not been used for ages. Take a look in the manual and oil ever point suggested every time you take out the machine. Try them now and then on slow speed, that might get every function to run smoothly again. 

This is as good a machine as any out there, favorably compared to any new machine under 500£. It sews perfect stitches on just about any material, and is well worth a full professional service (At a shop they will always recommend a new machine they want to sell you). All kinds of pressure feet and accessories are available in regular sewing shops and online.

Check with different shops for price on full service. This is a great machine what ever they tell you.

Bobbins for se 270-d

I have the same problem! I also have the same problem with the ULT2001. The SE270D is a class A bobbin if I'm not mistaken. I've tried ALL kinds of bobbins and did not repair the problem. I stopped embroidering w/it for a while and only used it for sewing. It started embroidering ok for now. As far as oiling - I researched this last week when the motor locked up. You should be keeping the bobbin area (pop the plates under the sewing foot off) and make sure you don't have lint building up there. But the best I found, DON'T OIL. I couldn't find anything anywhere that would tell me where to put oil. What I did find was that you should take your machine in to be serviced about every 300-500 hours of use.
