Almost maintenance-free

The Sewing machines come pre-lubed and pre-oiled. It's not needed or recommended that you do that yourself. If you suspect the sewing machine needs oiling it's recommended that you take it to a certified brother service center. What is recommended is cleaning the machine. That means cleaning all accessible areas of the machine but also inside the bobbin house.
