Oil your machine per the instructions in your manual. Our manual instructs to put 2-3 drops of oil on the hook race. See photo for where to put the oil. If you add too much oil, the oil can get onto your work, so be careful how many drops you add.

Reassemble your machine in reverse order by replacing the hook, hook race cover. Replace the presser footplate.

Plug your machine back in and turn it on. Run your machine for a minute or two without any fabric. This will spread the oil around so it won't get on your project.

Replace your presser foot and needle. You are ready to start sewing again.
