Vintage Sewing Machine Maintenance: Singer Golden Touch and Sew 750

Updated on May 13, 2016

Cleaning First

When I plugged it in, it had power. Then I pushed the power feed and it sounded funny, so I unplugged it.

I turned it over and removed the screw from the center of the bottom plate. A few acorns rolled out and there was a plastic bag wrapped around the shaft under the belt. I removed the belt and spent the better part of a half an hour vacuuming and removing particles.

Nothing Seems Broken

The gears all turn. It just needs oiling. So, that's where I am going to start. Adding oil. I cannot find a service manual online yet. Not an instant view document. Perhaps YouTube is my next option.

Sewing Machine Repair is Big Business

Yep. Now that I want to learn how to fix this, I have to pay someone to teach me how to begin. Well. I just need to start oiling. Anything that moves, perhaps, needs to be oiled.

Warning bells, however go off in my brain, since I recall my old Singer sewing machine had limits to how much oil you should put in and on moving parts. I cannot recall where my sewing book is, but, I'll take photos as I go.


If you observe on spots that spin around, you can put some oil on certain spots that move. Don't put too much oil on, since it will drip off and cause a mess. Well. Do not put oil near belts. This particular machine belt doesn't slip since it has treads that fit into grooves in the wheels.

There are a few spots to oil that move up and down. There are a few spots to add oil that perhaps oil from within. If you see a hole, look to see if it is an oil spot or simply a screw hole. Use a flashlight, if necessary.

Good luck.

My Machine

The machine that I have, is running now. I don't have a presser foot, but there is some odd piece that presses the material against the feed dog and it did actually sew my towel together. The tension was a complete mess, but, I don't intend to use this as a sewing machine. I am going to use it as a speed control mechanism for another project that I have.

Manuals Are Available

I found manuals at Singer. There is a download link and if you have Paypal, you can have your manuals within seconds.

There are YouTube videos on using the machine, also. There is a person who teaches sewing machine repair, and you can buy parts on ebay. There are model 750's for sale on ebay for $150. There are accessories available, also.

It Is Running Smoothly Now

After I removed the mouse nest, the acorns, the plastic, etcetera. Oiled up the moving parts. Everything seems functional now.
