The bottom of that serger can be removed quite easily. Lay it on it's back and you'll see 4 larger screws and 2 smaller ones. You can remove the bottom without fear because nothing is mounted to the bottom plate. When the screws are out, the bottom comes off with slight pressure to the left after you open the front cover. Once open use your vacuum cleaner and remove the lint. You could use a rag with a cleaner like laquer thinner to remove any serious grime if there is any. Once clean, turning the handwheel on the side, you can see what parts move. Where ever you see metal moving next to metal put 2 drops of a teflon type lubricant. I personally like "Tri-Flow lubricant. Do not use 3 in1 oil. It's important that you don't use an oil that attracts dirt and turns "gummy" in the future. Tri Flow doesn't, 3 in1 does!

Material won't feed through - the machine has worked for 25 years. Now stitches are in one place.

You don't mention the brand and model of your machine. If it is 25 years old, it's probably a mechanical machine (ie, not computerized). If it is mechanical and it has not been cleaned and oiled for quite some time, the old oil has most likely gotten sticky over the years. Sounds like the feed dogs are stuck.

Consult your owner's manual and determine that the feed dogs are not in the darning position. Then find the maintenance section on how and where to oil your machine. Most mechanical machines have oil ports (little holes) where oil needs to be applied. Use good quality sewing machine oil (not 3-in-1, WD-40, or cooking oil) or you can pick up a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store. Apply one to two drops each spot. To help it along, you can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal metal mechanics, focus on the feed dog area since that's where most of the problem is. Sometimes the oil and heat will help free up the old gunky oil. Gently rock the handwheel to get the oil worked in. You may have to perform the process more than once to get it all working again.

L have an Elna 1010 that has never been plugged in. Do I need to oil it before I use it? Is it ready to go after all these years?

check in the manual and see if it's self oiling or not,, some
machine parts are soaked in oil from the factory & don't need
to be oiled other machines have to be oiled,,if the manual doesn't
say then contact elna customer service and ask them.
I won't promise the machine will work or won't work if it's been
sitting for years ,sometimes the grease can become sticky and
you'll be able to tell as soon as you start sewing, make sure you
read the manual completely, that way you know what the machine
will do and what it won't do.
always use the proper needle for the fabric
and the proper foot
if you go over a seam and the machine seems to struggle, take your
foot off the foot pedal and use the handwheel to move the needle
manually over the seam, that way you don't bend a needle and cause
the machine to jump time.
also make sure to have a comfortable chair and good lighting and
a good seam ripper just in case of a mistake.
if you get frustrated while sewing, get up and walk around, that can
help clear your mind, I've had to do that plenty of times and I've
been sewing for 30 years.
if you don't have a manual send me a comment and I'll try to find you one.
there are several websites that have tutorials and other things for
a quilter,,
happy sewing

Can't find anything in the manual about oiling the sewing machine for my euro-pro 464xc

I have a Janome which does not need oiling. I can't explain this, but I've had the machine for 20 years and I clean it often, but no oiling. I found this statement below on another website:
"Many new modern machines don't need oiling. Indeed, oiling can wreck them by attracting lint and dirt to the places where it can damage the machine. Check the instruction manual that comes with the machine and follow the instructions carefully. If there are no oiling instructions in the manual then don't oil the machine -it doesn't need oil. If you think there's a mechanical issue that can be solved by lubrication then take the machine to a repair shop and have a pro look at it, it could be in a place where you can't get to without a pros help -or it could be something else entirely -like build up of dirt or lint." from:

Motor runs but belts not moving, How do I fix this?

First, give it a good cleaning and oiling. It may need some grease on the gears. If the belt is still not moving, it could be too loose...stretched out. In that case you would need to replace it. This seems pretty complicated. If the cleaning and oiling don't work, take it in for service. You can download your manual here:

Just want a maintenance manual so I can oil my Elna 740 Excellence sewing machine. Emailed the company, but they tell me just to have it done with service visit once a year. I want to oil the machine...

The manual should show you how to clean out the rotary hook area by brushing it out with a little brush provided in your tool kit. It should also show you how to remove the bobbin case and clean under it. Important: if you haven't removed the bobbin case before, then please take photos beforre you start so you can get it back into the right position when you have cleaned underneath. There may be two red marks on the case and surround to match up but I couldn't actually get a close up image of this model to check this.

Here is image from my Janome 6500 manual for this procedure, it should be similar on your Elna 740.

There is probably also an oiling wick in the centre of rotary hook under the bobbin holder. Remove the needle plate, pressure foot and needle, then take out the bobbin and bobbin holder and underneath is a circular metal part with a hole/depression in the centre. Wick will be inside there, don't mess with it!!. Just brush the whole area out, removing the lint from the brush into your bin. Don't try to blow the lint out with compressed air either.

You can add a drop of good quality clear sewing machine oil to the wick every couple of months or so, but keeping the area clean is equally a good preventative measure.

When sewing the machine seems to jam/stick. I have wondered if it needs oiling but do not have the manual to know where I can oil. My machine is a Cooper. Up until now when the machine jammed I was able to...

I can't find anything online for this brand. It is always best to refer to a manual if you can get one as there is a lot of variation in machines but cleaning is important so I'll make general suggestions. However, if your machine is jamming up it sounds like it would benefit from a full service from a local sewing machine mechanic to sort any major issues - there may be points inside that need grease or gears failing/gummed up. The mechanic could also could give you a quick rundown on the ongoing mainenance you should give it.

You could refer to, Debbie gives good machine tips and maintenance guidelines.

Also, only turn the flywheel towards you.

As a general guide here are some suggestions.

Firstly remove the pressure foot and needle. If your machine has a top loading bobbin, then remove the bobbin and look at the bobbin holder. Brush out this area and remove any visible lint or dust with a small brush or a clean piece of waste cloth. Is there a centre depression/hole? Add a drop of oil here.

If your machine is a front loading design with a removable bobbin case, then you can remove the bobbin and bobbin case, and clean the rotary hook (take photos with your digital camera as you go if you have never done this before so you can put it back together again correctly). If you go to Youtube and search for cleaning a sewing machine there are quite a few videos of different machines and how to maintain them.

Manually rotate the flywheel towards you a couple of times and look at the rotary hook movement, can you see pieces of metal moving over each other? add a drop of oil to any of these points that you can access and manually move the flywheel again to move the oil through the works.

Lower the needle and wipe the needle bar with your cloth to remove dust/lint. Now give it a smear of oil with a clean piece of cloth and rub this down the needle bar a bit.

Are there any holes on the sewing case top or free arm area marked red? These would be oiling points too. Give them a drop.

Turn the tension dial to zero and clean between the tension discs with the selvage edge of a clean piece of cotton fabric, saw back and forwards to clean. Thread will shed fibres and dye particles, plus dust from the environment will all build up in the discs if not cleaned out regularly. (don't forget to put the dial back to the original setting when you are done).

I would add that some people suggest using canned air to clean - I would not suggest this, as you can blow the lint further inside the machine. Best thing is a small brush as supplied with your machine, just buy another in a year or two when the bristles go all bent from use.

And use good quality clear sewing machine oil, not some 3in1 or general purpose household oil.

Wipe the outside case over with a microfibre cloth to remove any dust or debris, clean around the thread spool holders too, dust/fibres will settle here as well.

Always cover your machine when not in use, sew it a slip cover if you don't have anything with it for this purpose. And if you store it away for a period, then you want it to be kept dry so don't store in a damp spot.

Clean regularly as the lint build up will absorb any oil present out of the moving parts making things even worse.

Bernina Record 930 Electronic, seldom use, like new. Wheel will not move. Was doing stright sewing, machine slowed down then froze. Maching is clean. No instruction book or manual. Machine belongs to my...

Bernina 930 Records are notorious for the basting stitch sticking which eventually locks up the machine. To prevent this from happening, be sure to run the basting stitch for a few minutes every month. If it is stuck, you'll need to take it to a Bernina technician.

If it is not the basting stitch, it could be a broken plastic gear (trip to the Bernina technician) or it needs oiling.

If it is not a broken gear, then it probably needs oiling. Your Bernina mechanical requires regular oiling and cleaning even if you don't use it (ie, every time you change the bobbin, every 8 hours of sewing, or every 6 months if not in use). HINT: recommend Bernina oil or similar good quality oil for mechanical machines, NOT 3-in-1 oil, WD-40, or cooking oil!!! One or two drops of oil in every oil hole and every place that metal part rubs against metal part.

Treat your Bernina well and it will serve you well for many years.

Bernina 830 won't zig zag, won't buttonhole, no decorative stitch

Basically it is a matter of a stuck part. Flip open the top by prying up on the front or ends of the lid. You already noticed the hinges on the back. When you get it open, exercise the right hand lever on top (marked ZZ at bottom and 1-20 at top. If you look just to the right of this lever against the back wall you will see that it moves a little part back and forth into triangle shaped grooves. The part is not going completely into the grooves so drop some oil in there and exercise it a few more times, using your fingers if necessary to make the part move into the triangle grooves at the front and back. After a while it will loosen up where it should operate by itself smoothly . Hope this helps, I know it will.
