    I clean the tracks on my Nolting with alcohol. Some people use a silocone spray, sprayed on a cloth and then rubbed on the tracks.

    Alcohol. Remember to clean the wheels with it too.

    I clean the tracks and the wheels on my HQ16 with a damp paper towel every time I use it. It is in the basement and though I keep it covered it still gets dusty.

    Also check for thread caught in the wheels.

    It must be rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is sold in pharmacies here, in a plastic container, on shelving near the hydrogen peroxide. Probably somewhere in the area where bandages are sold.
