Question about Janome 1600P-DB Mechanical Sewing Machine
Moving parts require lubrication it is true, however, if there is an underlying problem that you think "a bit of oil" will resolve, this may not be the case.
There is quite a deal of electronic circuitry which will be adversely affected by indiscriminate oiling, and dismantling or adjusting this machine really ought to be conducted with reference to a Service Manual, particularly the automatic cutter.
Your 1600p is a semi-professional workhorse and I would recommend that it be regularly serviced by a qualified technician to check and maintain optimum performance (how regularly will depend on usage).
You have made a serious investment when you bought this machine and it really deserves & ought to be maintained as you would any expensive item, by a qualified person......you wouldn't send your Rolls Royce to just anyone to check the steering would you !?
A regular home cleaning regime should include bobbin case/hook race (under needleplate) and of the thread tension plates along with any obvious buildup of lint at and around the needle arm and region, near the lamp.
