I am just cleaning out my machine and I have a Bernina artista 180. In the manual it says to put 2 - 3 drops of oil into the hook race..however it doesnt show exactly where the hook race is or what it looks like! I am hesitant to just put oil anywhere as in the next paragraph it says,
Important: never use alcohol, oil or solvent on any part of the machine!
I assume it is where the bobbin is and I assume you would drop the oil into the top of where the bobbin goes into..is this correct?
Also is it safe to use castrol general purpose household oil on which it does say can be used on sewing machines? :?: :?:
