White quilters star 1780 is running slow, how do I fix it? Have already cleaned feed dog and shuttle, what else can I do?
You can send out to repair to have it lubricated & oiled, or you can do this yourself. Not recommended though if you have pets or kids where you are working on machine.
Remove needle, thread, bobbin.
There are screws underneath.
Don't lose them!
One drop good quality oil on moving parts so lay machine back on a towel, remove screws, keep foot pedal up on table so you don't accidentally hot it with your foot. All gears that are not greasy get a very small dollop of lubricant (Singer makes a good
one comes in red &white tube). All parts moving get
the oe drop oil. Put plate back on, firmly tighten screws. Never lube or oil plastic parts!
A drop of oil any metal screw located on top of machine. Lift machine up and if tip can be removed, you can check moving parts needing oil there and replace lid.
If front section opens--left of needle bar--open it up and oil moving parts..I usually just apply one drop oil to TOP of needle bar Close lid.
Put one drop oil on shuttle hook bottom left.
Never oil tension discs.
Run machine with scrap of fabric to get her nice and smooth sailing.
If motor sounds like it's running heavy after that, take in for service, but unless motor needs replacement, you should see noticeable improvement immediately.
Good luck and hope this helps!
Remove screws on top
