Do you still have any parts off of the Riccar Galaxy 300? I need the templates for the buttonholer. I bought my machine on ebay and by the time I was figuring out how to use the buttonholer, I realized all the templates where missing. If anyone has any to buy please email me at Joytruck@gmail.com Thank you.

Hello,
Here are some things to try.

If it's Your upper thread breaking:

* Rethread your machine
An incorrectly threaded machine can cause thread to break.

* Decrease the tension on your machine
The tension may be too tight for your thread.

* Reposition the spool of thread on the spindle
You know that little nick in the edge of a spool that’s used to hold the loose end of the thread? Your thread may be catching on this nick as you sew. Place your spool so that this nick rests against the bottom of the spindle.

* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly, usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

* Change your needle
Your needle may be bent or dull. The eye of your needle may have a nick in it that’s cutting the thread as you sew. Or your needle may be too small for the thread you’re using, in which case, change to a larger needle. And make sure your needle is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric.

* Change your thread
Your thread may be weak. Or your thread may be fuzzy and irregular, causing it to catch in the eye of your needle as you sew. Cheap thread tends to be weak and fuzzy, so make sure to
use a quality, brand name thread. And if you’ve been sewing with an older cotton thread, which can dry out and become brittle with age, try a newer thread.

* Check your presser foot for damage to the needle hole
A burr in your presser foot’s needle hole may be cutting your thread. Gently smooth any rough spot you find with an emery cloth.


* There may be a burr in one of your thread guides, in which case, you may need to have your
machine professionally serviced to have the part replaced.


If it's Your lower thread breaking:

* Reinsert your bobbin
Your bobbin may not be seated properly in its case.

* Rethread your bobbin
Your bobbin may be threaded incorrectly or the thread may be tangled.

* Remove some of the thread from your bobbin
If your bobbin is very full (if it’s hard to insert into the case, it’s too full), this may be keeping your bobbin from turning smoothly.

* Rewind your bobbin thread
If your bobbin thread is wound unevenly, this may be keeping your bobbin from turning
smoothly.

* Try a new bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

* Clean the lint from your bobbin case
Lint in your bobbin case could be keeping your bobbin from working properly.

* Check the needle hole in your throat plate for rough spots
A burr in the needle hole of your throat plate, usually caused by the needle hitting the throat plate, could be cutting your thread. Gently smooth any rough spot you find with an emery cloth.

I hope one of these solutions work for you.

SOURCE: Hello I have an old Riccar 6800 sewing machine

Hiya, the threading for this machine is pretty standard so you won't be going wrong there. Have you used a sewing machine before? The tension dial (on the extreme left) should be set at 5. The other dial to your left should be on blue zigzag with orange broken line. The dial on the right should be set at 0 and the bottom one on 2 - 3. I've been looking for a manual for this machine as I inherited this one. It took me ages to suss straight sewing out. Another thought is take it to a repairer and ask for a quote. Good luck.

Is there a dressmaker sewing machine with the model no. 777?


In the 1960's, Riccar made a heavy duty 777 sewing machine. Riccar made machines into the 1970's. The headquarters appears to have been in Chicago before it moved offshore. Value of the machine? Maybe $100 if it worked. Parts might be found or salvaged from machines used for parts. However, here is a Riccar shop in South Carolina:

I would be doubtful regarding offers of a manual for sale for this online unless at minimum it was attached to a brick and mortar store in business (and even then might query the local Better Business Bureau).

Find out what shank your machine is and you should be able to buy parts for it. I find ebay great for old sewing machine parts.
Hope this helps!
