Your question: How often should you service embroidery machine?

How often should I get my embroidery machine serviced?

A yearly service will prevent any heavily worn areas to be caught before they cause worse problems down the road. For example, if a shaft or barring is not properly aligned, the excess wear will eventually cause other areas of the machine to be prematurely worn out.

How do I know if my sewing machine needs oil?

Many newer sewing machines come prelubricated and do not need additional oil. However, it’s usually OK to add a drop or two in the bobbin case if you feel like your sewing machine needs it.
