Need parts/manual for old Riccar sewing machine

Here's a manual for the 551, it should be similar enough for your machine.
If not look on for a similar model.
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!

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.

I have a Riccar 210B sewing machine. It is about 37 years old. I have been the only owner and up to yesterday it was working fine. Today the motor seems to have quit.

Is the motor repairable? The tag on the motor says YM-40 80W 115V.

Thank you, Susan in Kailua-Kona HI
