Bought a Coverpro 1000CP on Craigslist a week ago. Although it had only been used three or four times, the machine had been sitting for a few years in its box. It was a bit sluggish to start but stitches fine.

Can't find any recommendations about where this machine might like a drop of oil. Any suggestions from you CoverPro owners out there?

Many new machines have sintered (self lubricating) bearings and synthetic gears. They will run for many years without requiring oil. You'll probably find that it runs more freely after being used a few times as the friction heats the metal and releases the lubricant.

These self lubricating machines still need cleaning, though, so it might pay to clean out any dust or fluff it's acquired.

Thanks, Misschris! Great insight about the self-lubricating machines.

It's spotlessly clean -- no dust or fluff, so it sounds like I need to give it a workout.

Follow the directions in the manual. Somewhere it will indicate the user is not to oil the machine.

This applies to many new machines.

Sit down at the machine (serger, sewing machine, embroidery machine) with the manual open. Begin reading from page one. Read and then apply each step of every feature of the machine. This does not take very long and will eliminate issues during production.

You never know where a used machine has been stored or how much it has been used. It may be a good idea to have your local Coverpro dealer give it a once over.
