Servicing your own sewing machine?

If your sewing machine, embrodery machine or serger is under a warranty.....


Don't service your own machine, you will void that warranty.


Advice for self cleaning your sewing machine.


  • First don't be afraid to clean and oil your sewing machine.
  • Unplug it from the power supply.
  • Open the top and bottom cover of your machine. Some models like the Jem, this is not possible.
  • Remove the needle and cover plate.
  • Clean out your machine by using a vacuum cleaner. Don't use a 'air in a can' this will send the debris back into the machine.
  • Use some needle nose plyers and/or a small screw driver to get some debris.
  • Use high quality oil (not WD40 or 3 in 1 oil) then oil all the moving parts. Don't over oil it, the oil is a magnet to dirt and threads.
  • Manually sew(use the handle). Look for more threads and debree. Look and hear for any problems.
  • Some gear point need high quality 'white grease' (Do not use the spray grease) Here again don't over grease it. Don't use it unless you know where it goes.
  • At this point, put the top and bottom cover back on. Put the needle plate back on. Install a fresh needle.
  • Once everything is put back together, plug the sewing machine in and sew with a scrap piece of fabric.
  • A few don'ts....

  • Don't remove the front or back cover of the machine. Most sewing machines have plastic tabs or hooks to hold the back and the front cover together. These tabs can break off very easily and the covers will not close together well. Also most front covers have the small wires attached to it.
  • Don't adjust the timing screws or any other screws that are on the inside of the machine.

I hope this helps you do some basic cleaning and oiling of your sewing machine.
Its a good idea to have a trained sewing machine service person give a 100% service of your machine to prevent and /or fix most problems. Sew Fun has the trained techs to help you with that.
