Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I inherited my mothers sewing machine, bit there is no manual with it. What do i do to lubricate the sewing machine? Do I have toremove a cover, what part do I lubricate?

Hello: My condolences on your loss.

You don't say what kind of machine or how old it might be. Many of the newer manufacturers tell the user to NOT oil their machine of if it is permissible such as on Janome, the only place to oil is in the bobbin race. Even then only one drop of oil.

If you don't know when the last time *********** had the machine serviced, I would spend a few dollars and have it cleaned, lubed and checked by a professional, especially if the machine has been sitting for some time.

On old school machines (black and gold types) there were several oil ports but even then only one drop was needed.

Our beautiful Bernina 730 sewing machine has been stored in the garage in its original case, and that wrapped in plastic, for a few years now. Temperatures have been both hot and cold in the garage, but the environment was dust-free. We have brought the Bernina in, set it up, oiled it as specified in the manual, with the original sewing machine oil. We have correctly threaded the machine and the bobbin thread is up. When we press on the pedal to sew, the machine gets electricity and buzzes

I bought an old Juki Baby Lock 418 at a garage sale. It will sew for 3 or 4 inches and then seems to be off timing and locks up. I have no instruction manual. Is there a manual available for this old machine? I would prefer a downloadable manual because I already have money invested in the machine which doesn't seem to work. It was suppose to have been gone over at a repair shop before I purchased it and was told that it worked. .

Mystery part Bissell 1699-P. I removed the top cover and a part came tumbling out (from the rear of the machine - towards the handle area). I have no idea were this part belongs. I have a schematic of the cleaner but I can not locate the part on it.
