Basic Sewing Machine Maintenance
This list will not only keep your machine working, but it will also be important for your safety.
Sewing machines are not toys.
They can disable or even kill people if the service is not correct.
For security reasons, we recommend removing your machine from the power supply before attempting any maintenance.
Removing LintLint is the fluff accumulated from the use thread.
Although it looks harmless, it accumulates in hard-to-reach places, blocking the mechanism of the sewing machine.
Open any case on the machine and clean the lint with a small brush.
You will usually find a building near the bobbin box.
Do not use vacuum cleaner.
It is too rough to remove small parts and oil.
Every time you finish a project, try to clean the lint from the sewing machine.
In this way, your machine can be used at any time.
Use the right oil for sewing machine refueling!
Don\'t use what you put in the car engine because it doesn\'t penetrate the moving parts correctly.
The proper cooking oil is clean and you may have purchased some of it when you buy the machine.
If not, you can buy it as easily as most sewing shops do.
Please refer to your owner\'s manual for areas that require regular refueling.
Some machines mark these areas, but check your manual anyway.
After refueling, several stitches were sewn on some discarded fabrics.
This allows any excess oil to escape to the scrap rather than on your new sewing project.
Refueling your machine correctly can prevent wear and tear and keep everything going smoothly.
It also prevents rust on the surface.
Rust will not only stain your fabric, it will enter the mechanical device of your sewing machine and grind on moving parts.
Loose screws when you refuel your machine, check if there are any screws that may be loose and tighten them as needed.
Some people may need a hex key to tighten, so maybe it\'s worth getting a set of keys if you can.
If you find a missing screw, do not use it before replacing the machine.
The missing screw can cause huge damage to your machine, especially if it is part of the timing mechanism.
Electricians should check where there is wear and tear on the split wire or PVC housing.
This is usually a problem with the internal work of the sewing machine, as these wires are usually fixed and do not move.
The most common fault is the cable on the pedal.
Make sure it is not stretched when used.
Make sure the external PVC of the cable is not split and the copper inner core is displayed.
Check the plug inserted into the machine.
With a lot of use, these can wear out and become sloppy, causing your machine to fail at the most inconvenient time.
If you find any electrical faults, I suggest that you hand over your machine to a competent electrician or repair agent because you can\'t be too careful about using electricity.
To sum up, I said at the beginning that these are just the basis for sewing machine maintenance.
I will do more detailed repairs later, but if you follow the simple steps often, you will spend less time repairing the sewing machine and keep the machine in good working condition.
