Hello: My condolences on your loss.

You don't say what kind of machine or how old it might be. Many of the newer manufacturers tell the user to NOT oil their machine of if it is permissible such as on Janome, the only place to oil is in the bobbin race. Even then only one drop of oil.

If you don't know when the last time *********** had the machine serviced, I would spend a few dollars and have it cleaned, lubed and checked by a professional, especially if the machine has been sitting for some time.

On old school machines (black and gold types) there were several oil ports but even then only one drop was needed.

What can you do to stop squeaking when I'm winding bobbin


Spray wherever the squeak is coming from with a dry silicone lubricant called 'Jigaloo' or WD40 Dry Silicone Lubricant. It is also great for sliding windows.

My Futura 900 machine is locked up tighter than a drum. How can I fix it?


this should be in sewing not vacuums. Did you find the bit of needle that broke off? It might still be in causing problems. turn machine upside down to free any bits that might be hanging about.

Just inherited a kenmore ultra stitch 6 sewing machine (model 13402) and i think the top thread tension control knob might be broken. Can i get a fix it part from somewhere/ can it be fixed? Thank you so...


You can buy this part here
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/tension-kenmore-mo-2052.aspx so I'd say it is certainly repairable.

However, installing it may be something you get a serviceperson to tackle, just depends on how easy it is to access the machine. etc. Another Fixya expert may have done this type of repair before but I haven't.

The other option is to take the machine to a local sewing machine repair person and get a quote to replace the tension dial and give the machine a service at the same time; this will mean you'll know the machine is working correctly, has been cleaned and lubricated and you'll be able to start fresh with it.

How to get Brother sewing machine apart to replace spool spindle.


To be honest the best thingon such instructions is the manual which is provided along with the machines,but many people don't have it , probably because they have lost the manual orthey have got the machine as a used one and forgot to take the manual alongwith it.

Please follow the belowinstructions :-

Close to the end of theHandwheel , there is usually a spindle, at the back of the machine.

This is where you need to restthe spool on and you would notice it sitting perfectly.

In case the length of the spindleis less , then pull it up gently with your fingers.

Also there are machines these dayswhich have easy to replace facilities , so the spindles just slide intothe machine for safety norms when you put the machine away.

Therefore , all you need to do it pullit up and it would be fine.

An example of a manual forbrother's sewing machine can be found in the below link which would give you anidea of how exactly it's done.

Just put the make of the machine on the internet and you can get the manual online, just print it when you get it and you will have your manual again.

I was able to inherit my Aunt's vintage Wjite sewing machine with no manuals. I would love to use it but I have no idea on how to even thread it. Can you help me?


Try contacting the manufacturer for reprints of manuals, guides, and such. If your machine is a White brand, go to whitesewing.com and click on customer service.

Bought house. Inherited shop/vac. A bit old, but


If you are going to use the wet vac to remove water, be sure to remove the bag inside the canister first. Also, some wet vacs have an internal float that has to be installed, but that may not be the case with yours.
