2 year idle time
« on: July 04, 2017, 04:04:00 PM »
I have not used my Statler for more than 2 years due to health and family issues. I hope to be back at it in the next 2 months. I hope I remember what I am doing.
Is there any specific maintenance steps I need to complete before trying to quilt again after such a long time?
Kindest Regards

Good morning! Oiling should be the only thing to worry about. We suggest that you fill the white oil reservoir under the motor and oil as recommended in the manual. Do this the day before you plan to run the machine, which will allow the oil to saturate the wicks throughout the machine. Oil again as recommended in the manual the next day, rotate the machine with the handwheel to verify it is moving freely and you should be good to go.
