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.

Even if the table would fit both free arms, it is likely the attachment mechanisms are different.

I have a Riccar 500FA. The upper thread will not pick up the bobbin thread. I have oiled, cleaned, checked the needle installation, the bobbin installation and the needle is brand new.


needle/hook timing needs adjustment
accredited service agent can fix or any sewing machine service shop should be able to do the job

I have a Riccar 706. I can't get the upper thread to pick up the Bobbin thread. What do I need to do?


Install a brand new needle (confirm it is installed facing the correct direction).

If it still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, the machine is probably out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My machineis not pickingup thread underneath not sewing


Install a brand new needle and verify it is installed correctly.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then most likely the machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

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 :-)

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.

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
