Where do I add grease (not oil) to an older Necchi sewing machine?
When I repair a machine I use triflow oil on any metal to metal rotating part ie back and forth. On metal gears I put the tri flow grease. You can use it on plastic gears although sparingly. the nylon gears were design for quietness and were not recommended for grease. You want to get the old grease off as best you can. If it goes up and down or side to side then oil. If it continuously rotates then grease. Exception those bearings that have an oil hole vs a grease cap.

Parts fell out
WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)

Upper thread getting caught on bobbin spool
Has your machine worked before? Check that it is the correct bobbin and bobbin case. Although,if it is the spindle that is sticking out through the bobbin case, that is the shuttle. Perhaps the shuttle is not seated correctly.
Otherwise, it would probably be good to take it for service.
