You really would be better not to open your machine at all apart from the large visible screws which enable you to clean out all the dust and lint from the base.

My Janome Memory Craft 4800 is squeaking. It sounds like it is coming from inside the machine. There is nothing in the manual that shows where to oil. How can I get rid of this squeak?

Open up the machine and with a bottle of sewing machine oil (do not use any other type of oi!) lube all the moving parts, wipe off excess.

How do I oil my singer sewing machine

Hi, there are holes on the top of the machine that serve as oil holes. Use a machine oil (as thin as possible- thick oil is no good). Oil any moving parts that you can see. wipe off all excess oil,so as not to mess the material when you sew. Before threading machine, run the machine as though u are sewing ,fast then slow a few times, this will help to lube the machine. Should the machine be used after very long time it is wise to open side covers or any area that can be accessed and clean the mechanism inside with paraffin( this also helps parts that may be stuck to move freely). Do'nt forget to replace (rescrew) any panel or part that is taken out. safety first. All the best.

Why singer sewhandy 50 will not sew

It is likely extremely dirty inside. The front of the top part of the unit swings open where the light bulb resides. It is very hot when the light is on, so make sure it\'s OFF when you open it up. Look for any corrosion, dirt, etc. inside. If it\'s spic-and-span, then the problem is in the bobbin inside the door below the needle. Pull out the bobbin, search for debris or string wound around the bobbin spindle (it\'s hard to see sometimes). Clean those parts if you can. Otherwise, take to Singer dealer for repair. These are highly sensitive, precision machines that should run a lifetime or two if kept clean and dry.

Pfaff Creative 1475 CD Hi. Something is loose or broke inside the machine at the top right. I can see inside where the bobbin is pre-wound and the manual wheel that things are loos. How do I go about...

Quite easy - open the top cover. There are two screws - one in front of where the thread spool sits, the other up near the right hand end. Undo them and the top cover will come off.

I need the part that lifts the pressure foot. The part is stripped inside and just turns and doesnt lift the foot.

Hello, Are you one to open your machine and do the cleaning, oiling and gerneral maintenance of your machine? I do and I have good results buying replacement parts online. I checked out one site and they answer emails for people looking for new or used parts. They "harvest" from older machines so they may have the part you need. This of course only works if you or someone you know is handy working on small appliances. The site is: Good luck, Germaine

How to oil

some machines have sealed bearings and need oil only on a few external moving parts .. most older machines need just about everything that moves oiled periodically .. we need a model number to tell which you have ... use only oil intended for sewing machines .. other types of oil might become gummy after a while and make a mess of the machine .. if you can open the machine to see inside .(usually the top comes off) .. then anything that moves not made of plastic gets a drop of oil .. there are usually several places under the machine that also get oiled .. in general if it moves oil it ... dont get oil inside the motor where the brushes are ... if your machine has sealed bearings then you dont have to and shouldnt oil them..

ROLL THE MANUAL LEVER BACK AND FORTH WITH CONTROLLED FORCE till the needle comes out! the jamming is caused by threads tangled inside the bobbin area. rolled it with a controlled force back and forth. when the needle comes out flip your machine to where you could open the bottom part and remove/clean the threads tangled on the bobbin!
place some OIL.
