Oiling is not a universal cure-all for sewing or any other machines, if you could be a little more specific about the symptoms of your problem we will be much more able to help.

Modern machines do not need much oiling. Perhaps you have over lubricated.

How to take apart a signer 7430 model


You can remove screws bottom plate, however, unless you are mechanically inclined, I would take in for service. Lay machine back on soft cloth or old towel. Don't lose screws! Oil moving parts one drop good quality sewing machine only and use Singrr lubricant on gears. If you don't have oil or lubricant, you can blow hair dryer 1-2 minutes and put plate back on. Never oil or lubricate plastic parts! One drop oil on shuttle hook, Run scrap to distrubute oil before sewing on project fabric ! Jimmy

I have a model #9120. It's sewing perfect stitches, but it started running very slowly. I cleaned all the lint out under the bobbin, but its still running slowly. What else can I do? My manual says...


Hello, if the manual say not to oil it then don't, some machines parts are soaked in the oil & the more the machine is used when the parts get hot the oil come out of the parts & lubricates them

if the machine is running slow, it could be the motor going out, power cord or foot pedal,
when was the last time it was serviced? they need servicing at least once a year

My viking 6030 sewing machine is so hard t get going it's nearly impossible. Bobbin fills ok just the needle moving parts are very stiff. I can't figure out how to get inside the head at the front to...


Try spraying WD40 on the moving parts to see if it frees up...If it does free up, then lubricate it with sewing machine oil. The WD40 is a cleaner not a geed lubricant. Normally the problem will be where the top shaft goes thru the machine casting at the handwheel

The handwheel on my embroidery machine is hard to turn and the motor is seems to be working hard to make the needle move.


Most sewing machines use metal to metal bushings in all the moving parts so without lubrication they will freeze up. Take the case off the unit which should only require removing some screws. Using light machine oil such as 3-in-One and lubricate all moving parts. Wipe up any excess. This should be done at least once a year. Your unit should now work ok. Let me know if you need anymore help.

Elna 5000 machine running rough. Had it cleaned and lubricated but machine is still runs rough. They told me about a kit that contains bushing and bearings and other rubber parts. Can I get the kit...


Hi! One of my favorite resources for parts is Guy at http://www.sewingmachineparts.net/. You'll need to email or call him to let him know what you need.

I also found parts for Elna 5000s at http://sewingpartsonline.com/elna-sewing-machine-parts-model-list.aspx. If you don't see what you need on their list, you can email them and ask about it.

You can also talk to Guy or the folks at sewingpartsonline about what would be involved with doing it yourself. Shouldn't be too hard.

Let me know if this works, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Janome SD-2014 sewing machine dogs fails to operate in reverse


The grease has hardened and that is what makes it not work. You need to remove the spring and clean all the old grease off it. You can put new grease on if you want but it isn't necessary. The machine should be lubricated with a good quality sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1). You need to oil any place that moves and rubs, This includes the ends of each shaft, the needle bar and the cinnecting links that drive the needle bar. Nothing is permanently lubricated.. you'll find this machine will run much smoother and quieter with fresh lubrication.As a matter of fact, if you use the machine a lot, it should be lubricated once a year and never less thanonce every 5 years.
One more thing. If it is on the main shaft that it has hardened you can spray it with a mixture of fantastic, water and some ammonia. Free it up and give it a light shot of oil.

Oiling my Janome Gem Gold


Janome Gem are self lubricating. Silicon is embedded in the gears and releases as it runs. If the machine is put away and not run every so often it will lock up. The hand wheel may have thread caught up around it. The Gems aren't assembled to be dissembled except to change the light bulb.
