Please check your owner's manual to be sure. I have an Elna and it needs oil on a white pad inside the bobbin area. I oil each time I do a new project.

Is the hole on top of elna T34D overlocker for oil?

The Elna T-34 should only be oiled at the spots specified in the manual on page 25. There is a spot to be oiled below the thread spools (behind the needle bar). Another spot to oil is on the hole on the top of the bed of the sewing machine behind the needle bar/presser foot lever. The other spots that get oiled are in the needle/thread section behind the front cover. Manuals Lib has the manual here: . The direct link to the page with the oiling directions is .

I hope this helps.

Where does the oil go in an Elna eXperience 450

Consult the owner's manual. As a computerized machine, it is important to oil ONLY as directed in the machine instructions. You may also contact an Elna dealer.

(FWIW, the only manuals for download I found were not free.) The instructions for the 320 and 520 do not specify oiling.

Does an Elna need a specific oil for maintenance?

contact elna customer service and ask them, but I would think they would tell you that just regular sewing machine oil is what you use. because I have different sewing machines, necchi's, singer's, riccar and I use regular sewing machine oil on them all and they sew just fine with it.

Should I oil my Elna 3005 sewing machine?

Many of the new models do not require oiling.

Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.

If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.
