What maintenance is required for Singer sewing machines?
First of all, you should always check the manufacturer’s instructions. However, there are basic guidelines recommended for every sewing machine user. Here is a list of maintenance tips you can follow to keep your Singer sewing machine in top condition:
Unplug the machine from the power source: This is an essential tip. Whether you intend to clean the machine or not, it is advisable to completely disconnect the sewing machine from the electrical current. It’s all about safety: sharp needles, moving metal parts, and electricity are all involved in the operation of a Singer sewing machine, so extreme caution should always be exercised.
Surge protector: If you own a Singer electronic sewing machine, use a surge protector or current regulator so that the device does not suffer possible damage from power surges or sudden drops in power supply.
Cleaning: It is important to regularly clean the machine of dust and lint. A slightly damp cloth will be sufficient for the surface. Use some unwaxed dental floss to remove lint from the floss tension mechanism. You should have your machine professionally serviced every year to keep it in top working order.
Lubrication: On sewing machines, oil can mix with dust particles, which can affect the normal operation of the machine. It is necessary to regularly lubricate the mechanisms and it is best to do this with Singer multi-purpose oil, specially designed for the lubrication process which is indicated in the user manuals of the product.
Direct Sunlight: The Singer sewing machine should not be exposed to direct sunlight to prevent fading of the exterior indicators.
Proper Needle: You should only use needles recommended by the manufacturer for each item you sew. Remember to replace the needle immediately if it breaks, so your machine is ready to use for your next project. You should always have several spare needles on hand, to avoid having to go to the stores in the middle of a project for something as small as a needle.
Modifications are prohibited: Do not make any modifications to your Singer sewing machine as this may affect its performance and void any warranty.
Storage: If you need to store your Singer sewing machine for a while, remember to use a cover to protect it and keep it out of direct sunlight. You should cover your machine to protect it from dust when not in use.
