Remove the needle , tighten the needle set screw so the clamp doesn't rattle and run the machine.This will give you a better idea of where the noise originates.
Remove the top cover and put a drop of sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1 oil) on anyplace that moves and rubs. Run the machine again and see if you still have the noise. Replace the top cover.
Open the side cover(left side) put a drop of oil on any thing that moves or rubs(Shafts or joints). Run the machine again.
Remove the bottom cover and repeat the above processes.
If you still have the problem and it is bothering either you or the machine then it needs to be seen by a technician.

Firstly make sure when you thread the machine you have the sewing foot in the up position or the thread will not sit in the tension and cause this problem. Also as it is a new machine it may have a small amount of oil from transport stopping the tension discs from separating. Try sliding the folded edge of a piece of fabric with the foot up through the tension unit it may clear the oil away.

You have a model 221 which was made on May 24, 1938 at the Elizabethport factory in Elizabethport, New Jersey. There were 20,000 of those made during that particular run which may have been over a few days.
Its value depends on its overall condition and what someone is willing to pay for it. Sight unseen, I would estimate market value for that machine in good running order at between $250 and $400.

Instructions on oiling your hook (the only area suggested for the user to oil) is located on page 40 of your instruction manual.
