cleaning the machine

Your machine will serve you perfectly for many years if you take a few

moments of your time to keep it clean. How often you will need to clean
the machine will depend on how often you use it.

CAUTION: Before cleaning your machine, disconnect power-line

plug from electrical supply.

Remove lint or fluff from exposed parts.

With a soft cloth, clean:

Tension discs, take-up lever, and

thread guides.

• Presser bar and needle bar.

• Bobbin case. (If there is an excessive

amount of lint in the area, remove the

bobbin case for cleaning. See page 55

for instructions.)

• Machine surface. (If necessary, dampen

the cloth and use a mild soap.)

Remove face plate as instructed on

page 54, and clean area behind it with
a lint brush t.

Remove throat plate as instructed on

page 7 and, using a brush, clean the

rotating hook area under the throat plate

and slide plate.

After cleaning, apply SINGER* oil at

points indicated on these pages.

Approximately once every year under

normal conditions, clean and lubricate all
moving or rotating machine connections
to ensure freedom of movement and to

protect metal parts from excessive wear.

To remove top and bottom covers, follow

instructions on page 54.

tA lint brush designed for this purpose is avail­

able for separate purchase at your local Singer

Sewing Center.
