You should not use WD40 on your machine. Use machine oil, you can p/u singer sewing machine oil really inexpensively. Also if you write Brother via the website they will email you a diagram of where to oil, I've found them very helpufl.

My Juki HZL F300 bobbin case is making a terrible noise. It sounds like the bobbin is going to spin right out of it. This noise is SO loud! Do I need to oil anything? It is not even a year old.

Try installing a brand new needle. Sometimes a bent or dull needle will cause lots of racket.

You should consult your owner's manual for maintenance--cleaning and oiling instructions. Most sewing machines do require oil--some more frequently than others. Most machines also need frequent oiling in the bobbin/hook area. Be sure to use only good quality sewing machine oil for your machine--NO 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or old brown stinky oil.

If it continues to make the noise, you should probably have it serviced. Since it is less than a year old, it might still be covered under warranty, so don't delay.

A Whitesuperlock? 2000 serger I got the tensions to work but really need to know where to put oil as it has been sitting 5 yrs so I am sure she would like some nice new oil.....

Search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Well, here is a PDF you can download:

From the instructions, it doesn't need a lot of oiling, but it does say (page 8) to apply oil periodically to put 1-2 drops of oil on all metal moving parts.

Use ONLY fresh, good quality oil made for your machine. The oil you have is probably 5 yrs old and has turned dark. If so, throw it out and buy a new bottle. Apply only a couple of drops of oil in each spot according to the instructions. Oil collects dirt and lint, so if you use too much, your serger will be more difficult to clean when debris sticks to the excess oil. Clean and oil your serger frequently to keep it running well. When you become familiar with the sound of your machine, you will recognize when it starts to make more noise than usual and know that it needs some TLC.

My machine is mAking a very nasty noise when sewing. I've oiled it already n continues any advice?

I suspect that the noise may be the needle hitting the bobbin carrier body
Take it to a service center for inspection and adjustment
if it is out of warranty then any sewing machine repair shop can check it out for you

Singer Heavy Duty 110 making whining/screeching noise.

If you cleaned and oiled according to the owner's manual, then that probably isn't the issue. Suggest consulting the owner's manual, troubleshooting section. Machine could also be out of time.

Some reviews on this machine are not great:
Amazon com Customer Reviews SINGER HD 110 Heavy Duty Model Sewing Machine

If you've had this machine for seven years and haven't had problems until now, it may be a good time to think about replacing it.

Where do you add oil to the simplicity embroidery machine?

In the instruction manual it should show you where you need to put the oil. What sort of noise is it making as there may be a different problem such as stuff caught in the bobbin race

Memory Craft 7000 making terriable noise

the machine is showing it doesn't need oiling or the manual says
it's a self oiling machine?
if the machine is self oiling the DON"T oil the machine.
if you think the noise is from the tension dial,, the try using a can of
air or unwaxed dental floss on the tension dial if you have access
to the tension dial.
or the machine may need to be checked to find why it's making the
noise. the machine may just need some adjustments or a tune-up
depending on when the machine has been serviced last.

My Kenmore 12493 is making a loud squeaking noise. I have oiled the machine as per the manuals instructions...I can not figure out where the squeaking is coming from.

If you are good with machines you need to take off the bottom cover and oil all of the drive. The motor may all so need to be oiled.
Good luck

Singer sewiing machine clicking

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.
