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.

My foot pedal wont move the needle, and my handwheel wont budge. Nothing i can see is causing it to bind. What could be the problem?


it may be cotton threads around the bobbin shaft causing it to jam up
take it to a sewing machine service center and have it serviced

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.

Elna Carina won't zigzag


The machine's needle arm is not swinging left and right correctly, do I understand your problem correctly? I assume that you have the stitch selector set to zig zag, stitch length dial to 2 (green zone on the dial) and stitch width set to 4 to select a zig zag stitch. Needle up, push the needle bar to the right of the machine. Push above the needle thumb screw, dont push onto the needle itself. Pull the bar to the right, then release. It should return smoothly to the middle position. If you set the width to four and push the needle bar to the right, there is a spring that returns it to the middle, if this is not happening then good chance the needle bar cradle is seized up and the spring cant move it. You will need to take off the top of the machine and get some oil down the needle bar into the bearings, then apply pressure to the side of the needle bar, push to the right side to free up the bar movement. triflow oil is best and a means to deliver a drop or two down deep inside. I dabbed oil onto the needle bar with cotton swap stick on my machine that had this problem. You should be able to see a horizontal metal tube down there above the needle, the needle bar slides back and forwards on this but machines left can seize up due to dust, and dry old oil forming gunk on the moving parts. you need to lubricate and get it sliding freely again, you should be able to free it up with a bit of time, oil and gentle movement. mine took a couple of days to get it moving freely fully, it would give it a wiggle, dab of triflow oil, leave it, then have another go. I got triflow from a bicycle eshop on ebay, great stuff. Hope this helps you with your Carina, if not, post again and I'll try to help

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.

Kenmore 158.17921 Need to know where to oil? machine sticks at times. Do not have a owners manual.


Remove the two large screws that hold the top lid on and remove the lid. Open the left side cover where the needle bar and presser bar are. Place one drop of oil on everything that moves. Oil moving parts on the bottom. Blow off excess oil with an air compressor.

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.
