Riccar machines have model numbers placed in 1 of several places on their machines governed by, I suppose, the whims of the manufacturer and the most common places are on the back underneath the motor mount, on the right end bottom under the handwheel, and just under the bed of the machine, front. These numbers are going to be on a metal plate attached by 2 or more rivets. Should you see 2 or more small holes in the casting in any of these locations, it is possible that the plate has been removed. The number that you have supplied is the serial number, and it can be very difficult to determine the model number from this information as the machine is manufactured at a number of different plants/locations.

SOURCE: I need an instruction manual for a Jones sewing machine model 865

The information did not display when I click on solve.

The best information I have is that Brother Corp bought out Jones Sewing Co in 1968. If they rebranded the sewing machines I can not tell. You can search;

http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/retiredmodels/retiredmodels.aspx

and see if anything matches your machine from the retired models.

SOURCE: what is the value of my admiral sewing machine

Hi. The value of any sewing machine is purely subjective. Sewing machines were made by the millions and the ones made prior to about 1970 were generally extremely well engineered, constructed of metal, and--with just basic, routine maintenance-- will last for many decades. All my regular sewing is done on machines that range in age from 50 to 90 years.
Machines like yours aren't at all rare (sorry) but there are people out there who do like the old machines. You can look on Ebay to get a feel for how much people are willing to pay for machines like yours.
Sometimes a machine, such as Singer model 221 Featherweight, will become valuable. Quilters love this type of Singer because it's small, lightweight/portable, and has a marvelous stitch. One in excellent (meaning showroom) condition might sell for $400 or $500......but I could find any number of them at garage sales for $25.00 or less! (And there are lots of sewers out there who don't like them because all they do is straight stitch.)
This probably isn't what you want to hear. . . .

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).

Hook Drive Gear, Riccar #53741 how to take part off of sewing machine


Hi there,

Today I got such a machine (Riccar) for free from a lady I know. the only problem was that the needle walked against the bobbin (timing problem).

I screwed the sewingmachine open and after some screwing I saw that the part, Hook Drive Gear, Riccar #53741, was broken. Wat I did is I enscrewed two screws wich hold the part on the axe and with a bigger flat screwdriver I could just push the part from the axe, from the other gear. It looks more difficault then it is.

Now I have to get a new part, put it back and time the the machine so that the needle will go normal, at the right time, in the bobbin. Does anybody know the trick to do that?

regards,
Daan

Looking for hook gear for riccar eatons viking ezb 108798 and repair manual. my bobbin hook wiil not move


The gear is #53741 and is available at most sewing dealers. The part is also available wholesale at sewing machine services in Canada. Also fits riccar, eatons and babylock machines, so a babylock dealer could help. You will have to beg a repair book or photocopy same to ger mounting and setting instructions. We charge about 60 to install and time the part ONLY.

I'm looking for a instruction manual for my Riccar "Rental Deluxe" sewing machine. Serial #E21129. Do you have any copies available?


Hi
You can get Riccar manuals for some machines from their site.
http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/
I couldn't find one based on the serial number. It's easier if you use the model number.
Might this be the one for you machine?
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/D102-Owners-Manual.pdf
I'm assuming RD stands for Rental Deluxe.
If not have a look at the manuals that are available to find the right one for your machine.
Hope this helps!

Manuals are available on the Riccar site.
http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/
Have a look at a few to see if any are similar to your machine. There are quite a few but I'm afraid but that's the only way I can think of doing it without seeing a picture of the machine.
Most machine have the model number written on them somewhere, but that doesn't sound like the case here.
Hopefully your manual will be able to tell you which settings are correct for your machine in able for it to sew properly.
Hope this helps!

Riccor model 939FA thread keeps breaking, not shure if it is threaded correctly, manual lost years ago, thread has been nesting on bottom of material, now just breaking.


Try looking for a manual for your machine here.

If your model number isn't listed try looking for a similar model or the number nearest to your machine.
Usually, sewing machines of the same brand thread in the same way. Hope this helps!
