Make sure you have a good needle in and the correct way round, failing that you may need to retime the machine.

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.

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 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.

To fix, or not to fix: Riccar 610 has broken bobbin case.


Check with the folks at the yahoo group "wefixit" -- you may find a bobbin case there from a machine someone has parted out, or you can part out your machine. And/or check with Ron Anderson at A1 sewing: ron@a1sewingmachine.com -- he's always been helpful and has a good reputation for fast service, and telling you if something really isn't likely available and/or a machine isn't worth fixing. I've "known" him on the old usenet group alt.sewing for 20+ years, and he's always been helpful.

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.
