Riccar serger hand wheel stiff


Could very well be seizing due to lack of oil or buildup of lint, etc. Sergers generally require frequent oiling with fresh good quality oil (consult the manual). Continuing to force the motor to run when the machine is seized can burn up the motor.

My machine will chain without fabric but as soon as I place fabric and sew it will not make stitches on fabric


Be sure to use brand new needles in the machine (confirm they are the correct needles for the machine) and make sure they are installed facing the correct direction and pushed all the way up before tightened. Start a chain without the fabric, then when it's a couple inches long, raise the presser foot and add the fabric.

Could be your machine has a timing issue and probably requires service.

Threading rl-635 serger--wife is trying to tread this machine and the lower something or other doesn't work. Cannot find a manual, and the tape they sent with the machine is all messed up.


Sergers can be a bear! One miscue and - well you know. My old serger was threatened more than once.

Are the instructions for this model printed on the inside of the door or on the machine?

Note every guide and make sure none are missed.

Raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Raise the presser foot and turn the tensions to zero.

Start threading with the upper looper, making sure the loopers are not crossed.

The upper looper is the one that appears to be taking the thread toward the needles.

Make sure the threads do not cross as you then thread the lower looper (this one appears to be taking the thread away from the needles).

Lastly - thread the needles; right needle first.

Take the ends of the thread under the presser foot and toward the left side of the presser foot.

Lower the presser foot and set the tensions back to 3 - 6.

Stitch a chain of thread before stitching fabric.

If this works, and I sincerely hope it does, never let the serger run out of thread.

Snip the thread near the cone and tie off snugly with the new thread.

Lift the presser foot and open the tensions and stitch or gently pull the thread toward the back of the serger. The knots should clear all but the eye of the needles - stop, cut before the knot reaches the eyes
