All machines need lubricating periodically.

The trick is to be vary sparing. All moving parts require treatment according to usage, probably annually is plenty.

Depending on how you feel about the removal of the covers, access is required to do a thorough job.

If it has never been serviced and is more than 5 years old, I would suggest having a tech do the job and give it a good clean out and tune up, it will increase the life, and feel like a thoroughbred again.

Merely asking this question suggests that there may be an underlying reason ......maybe some minor misbehaviour ??

Do NOT be tempted to just "oil it" to attempt to remedy any new issue, there will be a reason and there is nothing worse for we techies to see a machine drowned in oil be some well meaning owner.......may cost more to clean it all out even before the real work can commence !!

So is there any other thing going on to have you feeling like oiling will solve it ?

I need to know where and when to oil the machine

the oiling instructions should be in the manual,, if they are not, then contact the company who makes the machine, and ask them if you need to oil it or if it's a self oiling machine

Did your receive oil in your accessories if so then you need to oil your machine but if you did not then you probably need t let a dealer oil it some machines don't need oiling. I would check your manual or your nearest sewing machine dealer.

How do I tighten the lower thread on my 5710 Husqvarna please?

you need to change the needle to a ball point,, but check your
manual to see what needle it recommends
if you don't have a manual let me know & I'll check to see if I can
find one for you
adjust the top thread tension--if the bobbin thread is loose, then
tighten the top thread tension one number or letter at a time higher,
if the bobbin thread is tight,, loosen the top tension one number or
letter less..
take the bobbin out & reput it back into the bobbin case--make sure it's
turned the right way

I have a interlude 445. do I need to take it in and have it oiled? Does it use up its oil over time and use?

No. That particular machine never needs oiling. That is one of the great things about a Husqvarna Vik sewing machine.

The arm that puts the pressure foot up and down isn't working. It goes up but the pressure foot doesn't go all the way down to hold the material tight. Thank You

Hmm could be a few things... Make sure you have plenty of foot pressure on and its not setup for free hand darning. If the machine has been idle for some time give it a good oiling. The next stage involves an engineer.
