Riccar sewing machine 8500

I just inherited an older sewing machine. Riccar 8500. It will not pick up the bobbin threadt. It works great otherwise. Have a owner manual for model 8400 that I downloaded. Couldn"t find one for the 8500 series. Is there a trick that I am not doing?

    I have an older sewing machine that i am starting my grandaughter out on.it is a Riccar superLite. It will not pick up the bobbin thread and it pulls the material down into the feed dog. I have taken it apart and cleaned and oiled it. I do not have an owners manual.

    I have - check the threading - changed thread (upper and bobbin)- replaced needle- Is there anything else i can do.

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 riccar 1900 won't thread; needle to bobbin


First make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing.
If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread.
Next make sure your needle is inserted correctly, with the flat side facing back.
Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly
the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the handwheel towards you only and hold the needle thread lightly.
If this doesn't help solve your problem, the machine may have a timing problem.

Riccar 515, when making buttonholes, it will not zig zag in reverse


take the bobbin out and make sure it's not warped

make sure it's wound correctly

make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and that the bobbin case is inserted correctly, if it's a side or front loading machine

also could be a problem with the gear, they might be damaged or broken,, if you keep having the problem, have the machine checked

Riccar stretch 500fa Needle won't pick up thread from bobbin


Check to make sure you are using the correct needle for the machine, that it is a brand-new needle, and that is installed facing the correct direction. Other than that, it's quite possible the machine was knocked out of time and needs service.

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

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
