Where to put oil in

No, no, no! Do not oil all over. Consult your owner's manual. If your machine is computerized, the oil will most likely damage the computer components. Evenso, there are belts and plastic parts that should not be oiled.

If your machine is mechanical, rock the handwheel gently and apply ONLY 1-2 drops (fresh, good quality sewing machine oil) every place that metal rubs against metal. Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube is very good as it contains teflon and does not dry out like regular sewing machine oil.

Since it is a serger, oiling more frequently would be good (perhaps every project) but limit to only a couple drops of oil. Over-oiling is not good unless you like having to clean up the excess and getting it on your fabric!

Lost instruction book. Where can I download one? Which parts do I oil? Thanks!

Search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Once you get a manual, there will be instructions of where and how to oil it. Be sure you use FRESH good quality oil available for your machine (not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the smelly stuff from Grandma's sewing basket). Apply only 1-2 drops of oil in each spot indicated in the manual.

Yamata FY5318 reverse lever sticking

Have you really examined the machine? I had a machine binding on me once and found that the take up lever had been bent and it was binding on the upstroke.

Usually binding is a bent or very gummed up part or bits of thread causing issues. Get out your magnifying glass and some tweezers... time to pick clean and oil.

Good Day, I have a yamata fy920. I bought it more than a year ago and the presser foot is not working. Any help on how I get this fixed would be more than appreciated. Thanks in advance

Do you mean the foot control or the presser foot on the machine? if it is the latter then it may need a drop of fine oil such as WD40 on top of the pressser bar overnight, if it is the foot control check the pins that go into the machine to make sure one has not been pressed in.

How do i oil my janome mc 9500?

In the instruction book, it does not say that you need to oil your machine, but most dealers suggest oiling once every 8-10 hours of sewing.

You can put one drop of oil on the wick that is located under your bobbin case. If you don't have any get a bottle of sewing machine oil from your dealer or any sewing machine dealer close to you. Remember, you only need the smallest amount of oil.

Please let me know if this was helpful to you by rating my solution.

Have a great day!
