Where can I buy a presser foot for a riccar model rl343dr this is a overlock machine Thank you

The basic concern is whether the plug for the control unit fits the plug on your machine. Even generic or other model control units may work on your machine if the plugs are compatible. A sewing machine repair shop may be able to help you. Bring the old control unit with you so they can compare.

How to lower the feed dogs for free motion sewing on model # 16782

There are most likely some numbers missing from the model number you provided. Usually, there is a 3-digit beginning number, ie 115, 385, 401...

I am unable to find model information based on your number, but you can most likely get a user's manual through Sears or try searching the internet (Make Model manual), ie:

Kenmore Sewing Machine Manuals Instruction and Repair Manuals

Sewing machines generally have two ways to disable feed dogs. One way is a lever or knob on the machine itself that physically "drops" the feed dogs so they are below the needleplate. The feed dogs will continue to operate but since they are below the sewing surface, they will not have an effect on the fabric movement. The other way is an accessory that attaches to the needleplate which covers the feed dogs and creates a flat sewing surface.

Another item that is important for free motion quilting is a darning foot or free motion foot. These presser feet are physically shorter in height than a standard presser foot. This means the darning foot, when lowered, does not apply "pressure" to the fabric when it is lowered. It, instead, provides leeway between the presser foot and the fabric so there is room to manually maneuver the fabric while stitching.

You'll just need to CONFIRM that the presser foot shank is correct for your machine (low shank, high shank, slant shank).

There are probably a multitude of designs available for your machine, either Kenmore or generic brands. Once you've determined your machine's shank, it would be a personal decision as to the design you'd prefer, which could be metal or plastic, closed, open, or clear see-thru as well as various shapes, round, oval, etc. There are also some feet that are spring-loaded so they "hop" while you stitch, or feet that are solid.

These are examples of different darning/free motion presser feet.

My riccar 555su machine starts sewing as soon as I plug in. Foot pedal is stationed inside cabinet by knee, but I'm not controlling it.

The pedal is stuck in the ON position. Unplug the sewing machine and try to open up the pedal to inspect it. Or try pressing the pedal a few time to loosen up the pedal movement. Good luck!.

A model # would help. Do you have a manual? You can look for the riccar website and search the manual. If its available as download, you can use the CTRL+F function to "find" words like lock, needle, or other things that can narrow it down.

Riccar reliant 505 I need a manual for above sewing machine. Can you help? Regards Jane Henry

Have you tried the Riccar site?
I couldn't find one for your specific model number.
Have a look at a few of the manuals with similar model numbers. Or try to find a manual that most closely resembles your machine.
Usually sewing machines by the same brand are very similar and thread the same way etc.
Hope this helps!
