Where are the oiling points and what would make the threads constantly break


Depends on your make & model machine. Newer computerized machines require little or no oiling. Consult your owner's manual AND use only good quality sewing machine oil.

L have an Elna 1010 that has never been plugged in. Do I need to oil it before I use it? Is it ready to go after all these years?


check in the manual and see if it's self oiling or not,, some
machine parts are soaked in oil from the factory & don't need
to be oiled other machines have to be oiled,,if the manual doesn't
say then contact elna customer service and ask them.
I won't promise the machine will work or won't work if it's been
sitting for years ,sometimes the grease can become sticky and
hard.
you'll be able to tell as soon as you start sewing, make sure you
read the manual completely, that way you know what the machine
will do and what it won't do.
always use the proper needle for the fabric
and the proper foot
if you go over a seam and the machine seems to struggle, take your
foot off the foot pedal and use the handwheel to move the needle
manually over the seam, that way you don't bend a needle and cause
the machine to jump time.
also make sure to have a comfortable chair and good lighting and
a good seam ripper just in case of a mistake.
if you get frustrated while sewing, get up and walk around, that can
help clear your mind, I've had to do that plenty of times and I've
been sewing for 30 years.
if you don't have a manual send me a comment and I'll try to find you one.
there are several websites that have tutorials and other things for
a quilter,,
happy sewing

How to maintain and clean


oil only according to the instruction manual,, if it doesn't say any thing about oiling in the manual, then contact the mfg of the machine (example singer) & ask them about the oiling of the machine.
a sewing machine will last a long time with the proper care, just like a car.

My New Home sewing machine has been in storage for 2 years. When I press the pressure foot, the motor just hums. Can you help me?


try oiling the machine, since you took the machine apart oil it, use only sewing machine oil, usually you can get it at a fabric store or I think wal mart sells some too.
oil the machine,, let it set for a couple of hours,, put paper towel or old towels under neath the machine because of the oil dripping
then try to turn the handwheel back & forth,, putting slight pressure but not heavy,, DO NOT FORCE IT
if it doesn't break loose oil it again & let it set another couple of hours
then try to turn the handwheel again like before
if that doesn't work then get a can of penetrating oil, & use that,, then wait a couple of minutes & try the hand wheel again & after it breaks loose then be sure to oil it again.
let me know if it helps you

When trying to change to the other sewing stitches the cams will not the the selector pass


doesn't sound like he tried real hard, my suggestion is to find a sewing machine shop that will take the machine apart & find out why the selector doesn't move, it's possibly a worn or loose or broken part, & the repair man is suppose to open the machine & find out what's wrong.

My machine sqeaks sometimes what do i need to do to fix this


I think it's time to oil your machine.
Your user manual will indicate the points to oil on page 41.
If you don't have a manual you can download one free from the Singer site.

Just type in w2380 and click on search.
On the next page click on free download!
Remeber to use special sewing machine oil which is clear, not just any old oil!
