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:

The Riccar Sewing Machine Story


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).

Need manual instructions for Riccar 2910 need help with bobbin, threding machined and tension setting and bobbin holder.

You may be better off going to google and search "riccar 2910 manual" That way you can follow their detail dorections rather then someone elses and it confuse you. Usually the PDF versions have pictures with it :-)

My friend has a Riccar 210B sewing machine. The dial on the very top which adjust the tension will not move at all. We have cleaned and oiled the machine and It runs very nicely, except for that top...

try some wd-40 or silicon spray & let it set for a couple of hours & gently try to turn the dial, but don't force it or it could brake..& if it doesn't loosen up after a couple of hours, spray it again & wait again & try it then

I have a very old Riccar 440 model sewing machine which although is in very good condition, has not been used for many years!! We have lost the original manual and when we have tried to use it the thread...

Glancing through the manuals at Riccar's website I do not find a model 440, though there are models 404, 410 and 414. One of those manuals is likely close enough. While it could be a tension problem, breaking thread is usually a result of a damaged or incorrectly placed needle. Also, if you are using old thread, it may no longer have the strength necessary. The first thing to do is replace the needle with a fresh one, making sure that the flat side is to the rear of the machine, and that the needle is fully inserted. It's also a good idea to remove the feed dog cover plate and remove any buildup of lint. Also remove any lint that may be in the area around the bobbin case and hook. Here is a link to the Riccar site where manuals can be downloaded:
Please let me know how this goes, I think we can get you sewing without taking the machine in for service.
