Sewing machines, like any other machine, require regular maintenance in order to operate properly. By following these simple steps after every 8 to 10 hours of machine use, you will help ensure your machine’s longevity and will be able to better enjoy your sewing experience.
Unplug your sewing machine and remove needle, thread spool and bobbin.
Move the slide plate toward you as far as it will go and remove throat plate as per instructions found in your owner's manual. Some throat plates can be snapped out of position, others must be unscrewed.
Place one or two drops of machine oil in oiling points indicated in either the owner's manual or on the sewing machine. The areas of your machine that require oiling will be determined by the machine model.
