Looked at a Lady Kenmore 89 today and the pattern stitch dial won't change stitches. The machine is stuck at straight stitch. I looked inside and nothing moves when you turn the stitch selection dial. There doesn't seem to be any broken gears or cams. How can you unfreeze the cams without damage?

you should be able to. If it is reasonable you could get some info from a sewing machine dealer in what they use to unseize machines.
hope this helps

A sewing machine fellow told me to oil everything that can be oiled on a stuck machine.

I agree, I believe things like that can be unstuck. Good luck.
