Is the hole on top of elna T34D overlocker for oil?


The Elna T-34 should only be oiled at the spots specified in the manual on page 25. There is a spot to be oiled below the thread spools (behind the needle bar). Another spot to oil is on the hole on the top of the bed of the sewing machine behind the needle bar/presser foot lever. The other spots that get oiled are in the needle/thread section behind the front cover. Manuals Lib has the manual here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/939632/Elna-T-34.html . The direct link to the page with the oiling directions is https://www.manualslib.com/manual/939632/Elna-T-34.html?page=27#manual .

I hope this helps.

Where would I oil a singer Merritt 4530 model machine


Singer has the manual for the Merritt 4530 on their manuals site: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/437_5_6_8_10_slide.pdf . See page 44 for the picture of the points were you should apply sewing machine oil. You'll need to oil 8 points under the face plate on the left side of the machine. Most are places on the needle bar shaft. There are a few connected to the thread take up lever. If you move the hand wheel, you will see most of the points that need lubrication.

I hope this helps.

My needle is not movin up or down..switched to zig zag and it moved left and right but no up and down..Im lost without it..whats wrong and how do i fix it? Bernina 1090 s


Have you oiled your Bernina recently/regularly? Consult your owner's manual under the Maintenance section. Sounds like the old oil may have dried and is prohibiting the needle bar from moving. Use good quality (ie Bernina) oil, not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket). To help free it up, direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanism of the machine, concentrating on the needle bar area.

It squeaks when u sew. i need to know where to oil it at


Squeaking or popping sounds could be a blunt needle so make sure you change it regularly, 4-6 hours sewing time is rule of thumb.

To find where to oil this machine download the manual from http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, just type in your model number into the search field and click 'Search', most of the manuals are there as a downloadable pdf file.

The manual will show oiling points for your machine. Use sewing machine (clear) oil only, a little drop only but oil and clean regularly to get the best performance. Brush out any lint and dust first (don't use compressed air to blow a machine out, much better to brush out carefully with a little brush and remove the lint from the machine).

You can also put a drop of oil onto a piece of waste fabric then rub this up and down the needle bar (the metal part that goes up and down holding the needle) to keep this clean and lubricated.

How do i oil my bernina 801?


There are two key points I suggest customers can do themselves to help lengthen the life of their machine. One is your hook and the other is the needle bar...
Hook - Open your bobbin door, removee the bobbin case/bobbin. On the upper left corner there is a small latch, push in the latch and your shuttle race ring will fall down forward. You can now remove your stainless steel hook. You need to keep this hook clean and the lip it fits back into clean and void of lint and debris. On the back of this hook or the "lip" that the hook fits back into apply a small amount of hook/sewing machine oil.
Needle Bar - Open up your head cover, the needle and needle bar clamp is attached to a long stainless steel rod that travels vertically inside your head. All sewing machines have a needle bar that looks like this. This bar travels thru two brackets attached to the frame of the machine. Rotate your handwheel and clean the needle bar well of debris. Rotate the handwheel so that the needlebar is in it's highest point and apply a small amount of oil to the upper and lower bracket of the frame, rotate the handwheel so the needlebar slides back down and therefore lubricating it and the inside of the brackets.
Hook oil or sewing machine oil is relatively inexpensive from all quilt, sewing machine, repair shops. Be sure to take your machine in a minimum of every three years for proper cleaning and lubricating of all the other parts (This is of course for average home sewing machine use 8hours a week)

Oiling XL-5700


You oil this machine anyplace that it moves and rubs. Needle bar, joints that drive the needle bar,end of each shaft, presser foot bar,hook race etc. Do not use 3 in 1 oil. Use a good quality sewing machine oil.

Hi,

ALL machines will require lubrication at some point.It will require covers to be removed however. Apart from the cover over the needle bar / presser foot area, I dont recommend you try taking them off as without knowledge of exactly how, you can break the retaining clips. Cleaning out the lint REGULARLY is very important - you can use a vacuum with a crevice tool.

So, remove the 'lamp' cover and needle plate, vacuum out thoroughly. Apply a drop in total to the length of the needle bar, a small amount on the presser foot shaft.Remove the black plastic shuttle, clean around it, apply a SMIDGE of oill to the 'track' on the underside of it. Thats about all you will have access to. Use proper sewing machine oil - NOTHING ELSE!

If you sew a lot, get it serviced proffessionally - they will do the areas you can't access.

Good luck!
