The newer computerized models do not require the oiling that the older mechanical models need. If the manual does not specify oiling your machine, then you should probably not oil unless advised by a qualified technician.

What type of grease do I use on my elna 305 sewing machine.

NO grease!!! Best option is to pick up sewing machine oil sold by Elna--make sure it is the oil recommended for your model. For a computerized machine, apply only as directed in the owner's manual. Computerized machines usually take a clear, thin oil whereas mechanical machines usually take a thicker, lemon-colored oil. To keep your machine purring, AVOID old or inexpensive sewing machine oil. If it is an older mechanical machine, a drop or two can be applied every place where metal rubs against metal--do NOT oil nylon gears, belts, etc.

When, where and with what do I oil our Elna 6200 sewing machine?

Refer to your manual as to oiling your machine. Some computerized machines do not require oil. By all means, do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, or cooking oil on your expensive machine. Use a good quality sewing machine oil if you want it to last.

Where do I oil my elna 2007


This image shows that you need to oil the needle bar bearings and the rotary hook area. Also, always brush clean the rotary hook area after each use as keeping lint ouf of moving metal parts will prolong the life of any sewing machine and let the oil do its job.

Also, use good quality clear sewing machine oil, just a drop in the points indicated.
