Look in your manual, or go online to singerco.com and download your manual. Do not oil if you are not sure where to do it, because you can wreak havoc on your machine if you do it wrong, my sister learned the hard way.

My Tuffy Lock serger is squeaking and slow to start sewing. I think the belt needs oiling and I don't know where to oil it. Anyone know?


The belt should NOT be oiled. However, the metal moving parts would benefit from oiling--my preferred lube is Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube from the hardware store.

Pfaff 297-1 sewing machine runs very slow.


Your machine appears to be mechanical, not computerized. If so, more than likely your machine needs a thorough cleaning and oiling.

Might be best to take it for a standard service.

If you have the patience and time, you can try fixing it yourself. Consult your owner's manual, clean as instructed, and using Fresh good quality sewing machine oil, apply 1-2 drops as directed.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

In the future, be sure to clean and oil regularly (every 40 hours of sewing, every 6 months if not in use). Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil, applying 1-2 drops of oil each spot. Consult the owner's manual for instructions.

The Singer Touch and Sew 600e is now only sewing in slow motion. Any suggestions?


It appears your machine is a mechanical (Not computerized). If so, it probably needs a good cleaning and thorough oiling.

Your machine has seized due to lack of cleaning and oiling. Might be best to take it for a standard service.

If you have the patience and time, you can try fixing it yourself. It will require purchasing some oil, using a handheld hairdryer, and applying a lot of elbow grease. But if you are persistent, you will probably be successful:

My machine runs too slowly.


Consult your owner's manual for maintenance instructions. A computerized machine requires oiling only in specified areas. Use fresh, good quality sewing machine oil recommended by the manufacturer and apply one 1-2 drops each spot. Make sure your machine is clean of any lint or thread build-up, ie usually in the bobbin and feed dog area. If it continues to run slowly, might be a good idea to take it for service.

My mom's old singer will start sewing then slows down to a stop.


It may need a REALLY thorough cleaning & oiling, Cindy, including the motor bearings. The motor's windings may be getting weak, too, or the new belt may be slipping.

Sewing machine slows to a stop.


When was the last time you oiled it?

Sewing machines need regular oiling as you use them - it sounds like you have or are close to seizing the bearings.

In future, when you smell burning and a machine that should operate at full speed slows down - stop, don't persist in using it.

It clearly has something wrong with it.

Your users manual should cover oiling the machine - there are predetermined points at which you drop the sewing machine or 3-in-1 oil into. Only a few drops are necessary, but you should oil it every few hours of use.

Usually, newer sewing machines will never require oiling. In fact, for most, if not all, it's BAD to oil them.

Is it making a weird sound when you sew? Or are you just being proactive and trying to take good care of your new baby?

Sewing machine struggling to run or sewing slowly with no load


sounds like it needs oiled.
Clean thoroughly in the hook and bobbin case area and oil 1-2 drop is all.
Oiling instructions:
You never need a diagram to oil a sewing machine. Turn the hand wheel and look for every area that metal touches metal. 1-2 drops (more Is Not better) of oil everywhere metal rubs metal, use a flashlight and look and oil look and oil until every spot is oiled.

Machine wont move


I just found out that if you still have the bobbin winder on, the machine won't turn at all. So make sure that you have the winder slid over.
