Since the machine has been in storage, most likely it hasn't had any service (cleaning & oiling) for a long time. The old oil tends to dry out and stick things together. Your machine probably needs a very thorough cleaning & oiling.

My riccar sewing machine is kind of computerized. My son punched some buttons and now the needle arm won't come down at all when you step on the foot pedal even though its obvious it can do the various...


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.

How do you thread the Riccar model R1100 sewing machine?


Do you have a manual?
Manuals are available on the Riccar site.
I had a quick look bur couldn't see the R1100 here's one for the R1500, it might be similar?
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/1500-Owners-Manual.pdf
If not maybe the R950 is a better match.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/950-Owners-Manual.pdf
Have look for yourself here if these manuals are no use to find one that is more like your machine.

Hope this helps!

What size sewing needles and brand are right for my riccar 2600 model?


It should tell you in the owners manual.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/2600-Owners-Manual.pdf
Most needles are suitable for all machines. The size of the needle depends on the thickness of the material you are trying to sew. Usually the finer the material, the smaller the needle.

RICCAR 2925, I BOUGHT A RICCAR YESTERDAY AND I HAVE NO MANUAL. I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO THREAD IT, AS WELL AS I NEED A MANUAL.


2925 uses the same needle plate as 2910 and that manual is available at Riccar.com as a PDF file. I could email that file as I just downloaded it.

RICCAR MODEL 210B


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
