All sewing machines need regular maintenance and this includes using sewing machine oil (supplied with all Singer machines when new) where indicated by the user manual.

I can't supply you with a link though as it's not clear which model you have. Simplicity and Singer are different brands and you seem to have mistakenly mixed them up.

On singer esteem ii 2273 model. My problem is the hand spinner sticks only when the needle is all the way down.It doesnt get stuck juststicky slightly. I cantfigure out where at its sticking. Any idea

In order to solve your problem, you may have to take the machine apart. The gears may have to be looked at and oiled. I would oil every joint.

Where to oil machine

Consult your owner's manual. Computerized sewing machines require very little oiling and should be oiled when/where instructed. Mechanical machines require more and more frequent oiling.

Singer Futura II - Model 920 My bottom thread will not pick up and the top thread piles in a ball. I did thread the machine with the presser foot raised. Could there be a tension problem? Also where should...

you might try checking the needle, it could be damaged, bent, or blunt
then see if you can pick up the bobbin thread.
if you still can't pick up the bobbin thread it's possible that the machine could be out of time.. it would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop & they can tell you if your sewing machine is one that has to be oiled or a self oiling machine.

Where do I oil this machine?

You can only oil modern machines on the moving parts that you can see.

Where to oil this machine?

The hook should be oiled after ever 8 hrs of sewing, or more. For maintenance, remove the bottom cover, the end cover and top cover. Anywhere you see two metal parts moving against each other put in a drop of oil. Do not use 3 in 1. Use either Tri-flow or white sewing machine oil.
Avoid over-oiling in the sew head as it may drip onto your fabric.
Hope this helps!
