How do I fix my sewing machine?

Depends on your make/model sewing machine. Older (vintage) mechanical machines need frequent oiling. When one becomes familiar with a sewing machine, it is easy to tell by the change of its sound when it needs some TLC. Avoid running the motor if it sounds stressed--it could damage the motor requiring replacement.

Computerized models should be oiled only as instructed in the manual.

First--use Fresh, good quality sewing machine oil. If it is a computerized machine, there is a lighter weight oil that should be used.

If it is a mechanical machine, the following could be helpful:

You might try some Singer sewing machine groups, ie Yahoo. Group members are usually very helpful.

With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.
