    Default Oil for Juki 2010q

    Good Morning, all. Well, I was looking for oil for my Juki and the manual says New Defrix Sewing Machine Oil #1. I looked it up on Amazon and other places to buy but it comes in a huge bottle! I would be able to put it in my will for generations to come! LOL I can't seem to figure out a comparison that will come in a normal size bottle with spout. I don't want to mess up my machine if this is a special kind of oil.

    Can anyone that owns this machine tell me what you use in place of this type of oil? Thanks!

    I've never even looked in my manual as to what type of oil to use. I didn't know I was suppose to use a special kind. I just use regular sewing machine oil. I've never had a problem . If you want to use that oil maybe check with a Juki dealer in your area and they might sell it in smaller quantities.

    For my 2010Q I use Zoom sewing machine oil. It has a spout attached and costs $6.50 for a bottle from Amazon. I'm sure it's available from other sources as well.

    I also use the Zoom spout oiler. A 4 oz bottle lasts me for years. You can get free store pick up at your local walmart

    I also have used Zoom for many years. Here's what I don't like about Zoom: that zooming spout gets really messy. I actually stood my Zoom oil inside a glass jar to contain the drips.

    I've also used Singer machine oil, based on advice from Sewkarma here on the forum. It's way less messy, but also a little tough to aim at the spots you need to oil.

    Finally, I have purchased Martelli's Red Oil and will use it next time I fire up my Juki. But I do admit, said Juki hasn't been used in a very long time.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    To stop the Zoom spout oiler from dripping, leave the spout at full extension. If you push the flat at the bottom end of the spout into the oil it will continue to siphon oil from the bottle.

    I also use the Zoom spout oiler, but not their "Sewing Machine" oil. Their "Turbine Oil" is the same oil but labeled differently. It's available in more places. I get mine at the local Ace Hardware

    I use regular sewing machine oil for my Juki 2010q, but I use a needle-tip applicator like this one since it's less messy than the original bottle.

    Two more things:

    1. You really do have to oil your Juki religiously . This means after 8 hours of sewing or after any substantial period of unuse.

    2. The oil can drip out the bottom, so it's good to clean under the machine regularly. Also, I've learned not to leave fabric overnight with the needle down. I've had oil slide down the needle and get absorbed into the fabric. (I should clarify that I have the Juki 98E, not the 2010, so some of these issues may be fixed in your machine.)

    The 2010 will leak excess oil, too. If you use more than a drop per hole every 8hrs of use, oil will start to ooze out of the buttons and the seams of the aluminum case.
