Question about Singer 3820 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I'm trying to clean and oil my singer 3820. Can you tell me exactly where I should oil this machine? I am having a problem finding a maintenance manual. I don't have a problem taking the machine apart and getting it back together... I just need to know where I should oil the machine to work better.

Scholastic 6510. Where do I oil it?

Is there a maintenance section in the manual that instructs how and what to clean? If so, does it mention anything about oil? If not, then it is likely yours is a computerized machine and may not require oiling.

Does the singer model 3820 take a special bobbin? I cannot get it to feed the thread up to the needle.

It takes a singer or universal bobbin with a flat top - not one of the plastic ones that has a curve to the top.

Maintenance of Athena 2000 (Singer), specifically, cleaning and oiling
These might give you an idea on cleaning and oiling your machine - I also use my vaccum cleaner sometimes- but very carefully.
Always use sewing machine oil - singer brand is good. - If you have pipe cleaners they are good to use on hard to reach places.
