Finding info on an old Empisal Pixie Ann sewing machine offered for sale

when beginning to sew a good 2nd hand sewing machine is a good idea,, a sewing machine with metal parts is better than any others,
it will hold up better singer,,necchi, some brother sewing machines
are made with metal gear that hold up good.
if you can try sewing on the sewing machine before you buy it, you
really don't want to buy someone else's problem. repairing a
sewing machine can be expensive.
make sure you can get a manual for the machine,, so that you can
learn what the sewing machine can do & how to thread the sewing
will the person who owns the sewing machine let you see that it
will sew?
is it in good condition?
does it have a manual that comes with it?
does it have all it's parts & power cord & foot pedal?
machine, what stitches it will do.
people will tell you anything to sell a sewing machine , if the part
are not all there then leave the sewing machine there too.

here's a site with some reviews about the machine

good luck with your decision

How do i get the top off to oil the sewing machine

The information you seek is in this PDF. 3343 and 3270 are apparently the same machine because singer cross references the instructions as interchangeable.

Remember to use good sewing machine oil and do not over oil your machine. Too much oil can do more harm than good. ;)

The thread in the needle keeps bursting each time I make a stitch. And the machine is very tight. It is not free like before

I think that your thread may be old or of not good quality. Try a good quality, non linty brand and rethread your machine. Clean your machine and oil according to your manual. Even treat your machine to a new needle.

I want to buy a good domestic sweing and embroidery machine

Depends what you want to spend, pick a place that gives lessons and has good service. I have a nice electronic that has 100 decorative stitches that I got on sale at JoAnn's but it is not an embroidery machine. Husqvarna Viking is a great machine, Bernina is top notch too, and Brother is very competitive. Take your time and do some homework online, so that you are not overwhelmed when you go to look at them. Write down some questions and concerns, plus what you expect the machine to do. Good luck, just don't rush into it.

HI, I have inherited a LENA, limited edition sewing machine made by Husqvarna. It sounds a bit louder than I'm used to machines sounding...suggestions/comments/

Probably needs a good cleaning and oiling. I'm not familiar with this machine, but it sounds like an older machine, right? In general, older, all metal, mecanical sewing machines are just wonderful to sew with.

Good luck and let me know if a good cleaning solves the problem.
