Check the owner's manual. Since this is an industrial machine, it is treated differently than domestics:

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.
