I watched the demo and oiled the race instead of putting the oil in the red circle. The next time I went to sew I got an oil your race screen. So I oiled it again and ran it with no thread for a few seconds. When I started the machine I got the same screen. What does this mean Oh, I have a 750 QE.

Mary- my machine started making a clanging sound the other day. It doesn’t do it all the time. Should I stop using it? It has been oiled. My 560 tells when it needs oiling

Is it possible to oil the machine too often? I usually clean and oil my 590QE every day before I start using it, even if I haven't used up the thread on the bobbin or have used the machine only 3-4 hours the day before. I usually use the machine daily. What's too often?

My 1230 is clicking when I turn it in before I even start sewing. It was survived about 6 months ago. My dealer is over an hour away. I sold these machines years ago so am knowledgeable.
