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

My Juki Exceed HZL F400 works ok but the bobbin makes a loud spinning noise. I changed needles, cleaned but no change. I think oil, but no mention of oiling the machine in the manual, help please.


You are correct. There is no mention of oil in the manual. Just make sure that you thoroughly clean as instructed. You might try changing the bobbin to see if that makes a difference. The current bobbin could be bent or damaged. If the noise continues, take it for service. Something could be out of alignment.

Kenmore sewing machine keeps squeaking how to stop it?


Hello Shirlene, If your Kenmore machine has two drive belts, a belt from the motor to an idler pulley and a belt from the idler pulley to the main shaft. I have found that the idler pulley needs some Teflon grease on the idler pulley shaft. On my machine, the squeak would go away for a while if I oiled this idler pulley shaft. But it was short lived. Only grease on the idler pulley shaft would silence the squeak.

Where do you add oil to the simplicity embroidery machine?


In the instruction manual it should show you where you need to put the oil. What sort of noise is it making as there may be a different problem such as stuff caught in the bobbin race

HAND WHEEL ON JANOME 350E HARD TO TURN AND MAKE SQUEAKING NOISE THEN JAMS.


Have you oiled it lately? under the bobbin there is a white colored "wick" one drop of oil (maybe 2 now).

It also might be time for a professional service.

There is a loud squeaky noise when machine quilting a meandering stitch with a darning foot. The feed dogs are down, stitch width is 0, length stitch is 2.5. The machine does not squeak when using regular...


Is the darning foot aftermarket or genuine darning foot for your particular model...If it is aftermarket, it may not be the correct length. What is you model?

Where to oil a Kenmore 158-17600


Remove the top and bottom covers. Turn the wheel and put a drop of oil anyplace that moves and rubs.Also at the ends of each shaft. Open the side cover and oil the needle bar and all the parts inside that move and rub.Put a drop of oil on the hook.Do not put a good piece of fabric in the machine right after you've oiled it. Sew it off on some scraps that you can throw away.

My old Kenmore sewing machine makes a loud squealing noise.


It sounds as if your machine needs a little oiling. If you have a clear machine oil (not 3 in 1). place a drop in the bobbin case area and if you will notice, you will see small holes on the bed and on the top of the machine. place a drop of oil into each of these holes. If you can take the top and bottom covers off, you can put a drop of oil every where you see a hole..some of the machines actually have the oil holes painted a red color. Also place a drop at the handwheel as well. Just remember when oiling, less is better. After oiling, run for a few minutes, if you feel it still needs a litte more, do the same, one drop at a time. After this, if you machine sets for a while, oil just before starting to sew, that way when you put the machine away the oil has been worked through and it should help prevent the squeaking when starting up again.
