    Seriously ... I've had this machine for 5 years now and I just NOW read the manual looking for the place to oil my machine. I don't use it a whole lot anymore and in the past I brought it in for a yearly "physical" because my dealer does it once a year for free for the first 5 years of it's life.

    Well, the bobbin vommited up a chunk of thread and I had to take pieces out of the bottom of the case. I cleaned and cleaned and figured while I had the darn thing open ... oil it. I pulled the user guide and it says lubrication is not necessary.

    Really??

    Do any of you oil your Husky 535, and if so ... where?

    Don't have your particular unit, but none of my vikings are supposed to be oiled.

    Viking came out with the first non oiling machine in 1972. That is what I asked for and got for my graduation. It had all the cams for the back to switch to the fancy stitches. It had a 25 year warranty, and at 24 years they replaced three inside parts all for nothing. Of course then I saved and bought their first embroidery machine the 1+.

    I have this same machine and have never oiled it, as you are not supposed to but I clean out the bobbin area after each sewing project and it has never given me any problems.

    don't oil...they told me they are self oiled whatever that means...I have 4 Husq...Lily 545, SE and EM10 and ER10...Only one that needs oiling is the EM10 which is their cheapest Embro machine I first bought and it's made in Asia...Not Sweden...It was really the first machine they tried having made elsewhere...So that I oil but anything they make in Sweden and most new machine don't need oil...
