2. Never use bad quality of threads. Although cheaper threads may help you save in the materials you will be using, it can be harmful to your sewing machine because it produces more lint that can damage the machine itself.
3. Take it slow when starting. People tend to get excited when they are sewing at a fast rate without realizing that this can damage the machine easily. When using the machine, always start slow to test the threading.
4. Change needles as often as possible. Since needles are always used when running a sewing machine, make sure that you check them regularly for any chips or blunt edges so it would not cause any damage to the machine.
5. Never forget to unplug the sewing machine when not in use. This will ensure not only your safety but also the money you will save from your electricity charges.
6. Ensure that the sewing machine is always lint-free. Lint—a result of the combination of threads and fabrics—is one of causes for a damaged sewing machine. You can remove lint by using special brushes that come with the sewing machine.
7. Keep the sewing machine oiled at all times. This will veer it away from rust and dust build up that can damage the machine.
8. Always ask for professional's expertise. Don’t try to fix sewing machine problems on your own especially if you don’t know what's wrong with it. Always seek for the electrician's expertise to avoid bring further damage to the machine.
