A manual for a similar model would be a benefit. Most machines operate and thread the same. Yes, you should definitely clean and lube your machine before trying any sewing. Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube from the hardware store is a good product to use because it does not dry out and turn to glue over time.

FWIW, I inherited a Nelco J28 and it is the toughest machine in my arsenal. I repair horse equipment with it. The stitch quality is not the best, but it certainly sews most anything thrown at it. The only issue I have with it (and it is my issue, not the machine's) is that it has a side-loading bobbin which means the home position of the needle is also on the left instead of the middle. Having always used a centered needle makes using it seem somewhat unnatural. However, your machine appears to have the front-loading bobbin and centered needle.

Hi,

ALL machines will require lubrication at some point.It will require covers to be removed however. Apart from the cover over the needle bar / presser foot area, I dont recommend you try taking them off as without knowledge of exactly how, you can break the retaining clips. Cleaning out the lint REGULARLY is very important - you can use a vacuum with a crevice tool.

So, remove the 'lamp' cover and needle plate, vacuum out thoroughly. Apply a drop in total to the length of the needle bar, a small amount on the presser foot shaft.Remove the black plastic shuttle, clean around it, apply a SMIDGE of oill to the 'track' on the underside of it. Thats about all you will have access to. Use proper sewing machine oil - NOTHING ELSE!

If you sew a lot, get it serviced proffessionally - they will do the areas you can't access.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Where to oil a Kenmore 158-17600

Remove the top and bottom covers. Turn the wheel and put a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.Also at the ends of each shaft. Open the side cover and oil the needle bar and all the parts inside that move and rub.Put a drop of oil on the hook.Do not put a good piece of fabric in the machine right after you've oiled it. Sew it off on some scraps that you can throw away.

With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.
