Question about Singer Sewing Machines
You CAN reset the timing, but before you do that you will need to check the needle height--the two are related, and you problem could be caused by an incorrect needle height instead of a misaligned hook.
Purchase a service manual from Singer Parts Online; I think it's $6.95 and well worth it. It will show you what the needle height should be and how to adjust it, and also what screws to loosen to reset the timing.

Try to turn the hand wheel (on the right side of the machine) backwards ( if you are facing the right side of your machine, turn it clockwise) and try to remove the thread. Once its freed up, change the needle.
Hope that helps,

You should never oil a computerized (electronic) sewing machine. You do need to clean the lint from it at intervals. Singer has the instruction manual available on their support site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/8332a66e46ddc22f7bc62f0139bf8fbd03c55b23.pdf . See page 113 (114 of the PDF) for the cleaning information.
I hope this helps.
(I have used mechanical sewing machines which need regular oiling and greasing. The computerized systems are pre-lubricated at the factory and that lubrication should last the machine's lifetime.)
