Maria asked: ... How do you unlock your side drawers on your machine?
My drawers have a central lock between the two drawers on either side (mine is a 5 drawer model, the middle flip down drawer does not lock)
To unlock it would go in horizontally and turn 90º clockwise
The same goes for locking the lid. There is a little hole on the right of the lid. To lock you put the key in vertically and turn 90º anti-clockwise.
I never lock my machine, I personally don't see the point. I guess you might want to keep young kids away from sewing needles (or some kind of military secrets) in the drawers. But the un-lockable mechanism below is much more lethal in my opinion.
Anyways, I hope that helps.
