SOURCE: sewing machine, strange noise

Is the needle in right? There is a front and back to a needle. Also is it the right needle for the machine?

SOURCE: should I oil my Elna 3005 sewing machine?

Many of the new models do not require oiling.

Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.

If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.

SOURCE: new sewing machine is squeaking

YOu may have bent the needle. Put in a new needle and re-thread the whole machine. See if that works.

Try contacting Singer, maybe they can email you a diagram for oiling your overlocker.

SOURCE: kenmore sewing machine keeps squeaking how to stop it?

If your Kenmore is an older mechanical machine, it most likely needs a good oiling. Consult your owner's manual maintenance section for instructions. Use only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. Apply only one or two drops each place in the instructions. Do NOT oil plastic or rubber parts/belts.

My Kenmore 12493 is making a loud squeaking noise. I have oiled the machine as per the manuals instructions...I can not figure out where the squeaking is coming from.


Hi
If you are good with machines you need to take off the bottom cover and oil all of the drive. The motor may all so need to be oiled.
Good luck

Makes too much noise


Check that your needle is fully up into the needle housing, and is in flat shank to the back.

Also change the needle if it has been in the machine for more than 6 hours of sewing as the needle will go blunt and this can make squeaking or popping sounds as you stitch.

Lastly, are you sure that the bobbin case is in correctly and hasn't been put in incorrectly. It should have a stitch finger which locks up into the top of the rotary hook if its a vertical bobbin case and bobbin design which I'm pretty sure your machine is.

Squealing noise Husquvarna 3310 sewing machine. Still sews ok but noise must be harming the machine. Anyone know what I can check?


My Designer 1 started squeaking recently and, like you, I was concerned even though it sewed like usual. I emailed my tech. and he suggested either feed lifter mechanism or feed cam were the most likely causes - simple to repair but I would need to bring machine in for him to hear because there could be other reasons for the squeak. Well I did not have time to go then and there. Next day when I sewed, the squeak was gone!
At the time it squeaked I was sewing through several fairly thick layers (making a pot holder) and sewing very slowly. The next day I sewed normal cloth at normal speed but no matter how slowly I sewed, I could not get it to squeak. I will get it checked eventually but as long as it is squeak-less I'm not going to be concerned.
If yours squeaks all the time no matter what you are sewing then, yes, I think you should get it looked at. Be sure that nothing is rubbing against the body of the machine i.e. accessory tray and making the noise.
