Re: email go out?

If you have your machine serviced every year or two, no it's not necessary. In 25 years of servicing machines I only encountered two that had a wick dried out enough to cause a bind resulting in screeching. I had MANY though from owners so vigilant about cleaning that they pulled the wick completely out, thinking it was lint. Putting it back is out of the question - easier to put toothpaste back in the tube! So in summary, if you put ONE DROP on the wick now and again, no harm, couldn't hurt. If you NEVER put oil on the wick, but you do keep your machine clean and get it serviced once in a while, that's fine too.
