Air compressor oil should be changed at least once a year. Available at all big-box home improvement stores. Hope this helps.

Sears kenmore sewing machine model 148-13100 running slow


Did you open the top of the machine and oil every place where metal rubs against metal? Did you do the same under the machine? Use only GOOD quality sewing machine oil. If the machine is slow to recover (it may take a while for the oil to sink in), you can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanics. AVOID trying to run the machine until it moves freely or possibly risk damaging the motor.

My sewing machine started to sew slow and seem like it is working hard. Won't sew normal. Hasn't been that long since it was last serviced/oiled. Any suggestions?


Slow is due to friction in the shuttle drive and key moving bars and joint. Apply few drops of petrol/kerosene and run for few minutes. Then apply normal lubricating oils meant for machines.

The rertractable movement is getting slow and sluggish = how do I lubricate the innards?


Try using a little WD-40 on a cotton swab on all moving parts of the retractable movement. I would be a little afraid to try light machine oil like 3 in 1 because you don't want an oily surface attracting dust, further aggravating the problem. WD might help free it up and not leave an oily mess when it dries.

I have a model #9120. It's sewing perfect stitches, but it started running very slowly. I cleaned all the lint out under the bobbin, but its still running slowly. What else can I do? My manual says...


Hello, if the manual say not to oil it then don't, some machines parts are soaked in the oil & the more the machine is used when the parts get hot the oil come out of the parts & lubricates them

if the machine is running slow, it could be the motor going out, power cord or foot pedal,
when was the last time it was serviced? they need servicing at least once a year

Got a craftsman 1.5hp 12gal air compressor, model# 919.155612. when I fill it up it works fine, but when the compressor kicks back on after i used it, it sounds like it doesnt want to work it runs real...


Hello. This sounds like the power supply to the motor is insufficient. Eliminate any extension cord you may be using and plug directly into a recepticle. If this doesn't work you may need to run a new circuit.If your compressor has a relief valve pull the valve to release pressure while it is trying to start.This should help it by lowering the pressure it has to over come.

Shredder is very sluggish


Yes they require lubrication

You can buy shredder oil from lots of office equipment suppliers

To see if it helps spray some WD40 (using the plastic extender) into either side of the opening where you normally put the paper.

Switch the machine on to run continually and give the blades another good spray

This should loosed up any dust which has gathered

If the machine picks up its pace then go buy some real shredder oil and use it before every operation

Do not go mad with the amount you apply but dont skimp
