What cleaning product have you used with successfully to clean mocha 301? Tried soap and water and paint came off in a small spot.

I use gojo, the waterless hand cleaner Without pumice. Others use baby wipes. Some just use sewing machine oil.

I just bought mint vintage Fleetwood TW 1692, in cabinet. Motor runs good bobbin and wheel turn smoothly, but when I engage the regular sewing the wheel turns but seems to freeze at a certain point in the rotation. Should I open or could it maybe need oil. Want to be carefull, it can't be much.

It's either a rust spot or more likely a thread caught behind the hook.
