All sewing machines should be serviced regularly to help ensure that they continue to function properly. If you’ve never done this to your machine before, now is the time to get familiar with what needs to be done. This includes some disassembly, and the cleaning and oiling of critical components.
If you want to do this on your own, check out the Basic Sewing Machine & Serger Maintenance Tutorial to see the general steps involved and tips.
This is a step-by-step guide, with photos and descriptions, that shows how to access different areas of the machine and the parts that need the most attention. Keep in mind, every machine is different, and the steps and photos in the tutorial are for general reference only, and will not match exactly to your machine. Refer to your user’s manual for instructions that are specific to your machine before performing any maintenance.
If you don’t have the time, or want your machine serviced by a professional, Ronkita also offers diagnostic and full-service repairs for most makes and models of sewing machines and sergers.
