  • Unthread the machine.
  • Raise the presser foot.
  • Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position.
  • Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5.
    The threading path is as follows:

  • From the spool around the top guide, down through the right slot, up the left slot, through the eye of the take-up lever from right to left, down through the guide(s), through the needle from front to back.

    That doesn't make sense. The take-up lever is on the right side and the only clear path from the top guide is going left to right... at least on my Riccar Super Stretch 550.

    I do need a manual though. Any ideas where to get one?

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 :-)

Riccar sewing machine 606 super stretch wont turn all the way


Older machines usually suffer from dried up oil and a build up of fuzz and lint. You'll need to do some serious cleaning and oiling. Look for trapped threads between moving parts. Use "liquid wrench" to clean capture drips and allow to soak for a bit. Then wipe down and use a good sewing machine oil.

Also if you mean that the needle is hitting something... that means the machine is out of time and needs to be timed.

I've tried to look up the manual for this but haven't found anything free for download. However there is a "608" that should at least give you some hints on what to do for your machine, oil points etc.

Get cleaned and oiled up really well... then if you still have bindinding issues check the timing.

How do I thread up a Riccar Reliant 57 sewing machine? I have just been given one and their is no manual. I will purchase one but need to use the machine now. Thanks.


HI
Try finding a threading diagram in a manual for another riccar machine here.
http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/
I couldn't see a manual here for the Riccar Reliant 57 but there are ones for the RL570 etc.
Most machines by the same brand thread in the same way.
Hope this helps!
