I have a Simplicity SE3 machine and I can not fine bobbins for this machine. Where can they be purchased?

The Simplicity SE3 bobbins are used for several other machines. The metal version of the bobbin is available here: . These are 10 for $6. There is a plastic version that's a bit cheaper: . These two links include both other machines that use the bobbin and alternative part numbers to locate them from other vendors.

If you ask at a local sewing machine store for the Brother PE100 or BabyLock BL2100 bobbins, they should be able to help you find them.

I hope this helps.

Should the Simplicity SE3 embroidery machine be oiled by the operator

If the manual doesnt mention oiling at all, then it probably has silicon or nylon parts not needing lubrication. It may also have oiling wicks which the technican will attend do during the regular services that the manufacturer probably recommends annually in the manual.

You do need to clean out the bobbin area regularly though and your manual should mention this, lint will build up in any sewing machine and affect perforance.

Remove the cords from the machine and re-insert.

Check the outlet you are using with another appliance to make sure it is working.

Where do i oil my machine? I'm not finding it in the manual. I have a simplicity se3 embroidery americana series

A lot of the newer computer models don't seem to recommend oiling. I went to the manufacters website for my machine- brother pc-420- to find out, because like you, there were no indications in my manual. Brother website informed machine was oiled plenty already and advised oiling could cause damage. Seems like a way to put services centers back in business if you ask me! My advice would be to call Simplicity and see what they have to say about maintenance. In the meantime I will be making the same call to Brother. Hope we both stay out of repairs. Good luck! =)

How many images can the SE3 read from an external Vikant Ultimate Card

Hi 2Bosse.....ensure that you always turn the power switch off prior to inserting or removing your cards. After you insert your card and turn the power switch on, press "List" to display the maximum amount of images. Press Next to scroll. Your machine accepts a maximum of an 8MB card, and unlimited reading abilities of PES. I hope this has help you my friend...good luck.
