Question about Riccar R751

1 Answer

The hole in my Riccar sewing machine needle is too small & I can not thread my needle. Do they have needles with bigger holes or a needle threader to help me thread my needle? If so where can I purchase it.

Singer model 620 sewing machine needle pokes holes in fabric but doesn't sew with the thread?


try changing the needle--make sure it's the right needle for the
fabric being sewed
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case
it's also possible that the machine could have a timing problem
and needs to be checked

My pfaff 1475 is looping when sewing a zipper


I have a 1475. I've generally found that this occurs when the needle thread tension is too low; the thread, having looped around the bobbin, isn't getting pulled back up because the tension is low enough that thread can be pulled from the spool more easily than the needle thread can be pulled back up from below the work. In some cases, switching to a larger needle is required; a bigger needle makes a bigger hole, which means it's easier for the thread to be pulled back up. (And if you switched to a heavier thread for the zipper, then you probably needed to go up to a larger needle anyway. Just because the thread will go through the eye, that doesn't mean the needle's the right size.)

Singer Inspiration - needle breaks - needle lowers into hole but edge of hole hits needle before it is raised out of hole - is this a timing problem ? I would appreciate any help asap as I am making a lot...


Machine breaks needles
1.make sure you are using the right needle for your type of sewing machine.
Most machines can use generic Schmetz needles. There are cases where the machine will only use ones specified in the owners manual.
2.the presser foot may not be installed properly
3.use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric.
4.let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
5.the needle is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop

also make sure to use the right tension for what your sewing
also clean under the needle plate & bobbin area for lint or loose threads

if these suggestions don't work & stop the needle breaking then it may be neccessary to have the machine serviced

It is hard to use the needle threader can't get thread to go thru needle am I using it wrong? Thread in front of needle or behind needle I have tried both.


Takes a little practice, just be patient, the thread goes in front of the needle. Sometimes the needle hole is very small and addes to the frustration. I use Singer Inspira needles and they have a larger hole and much easier to thread.

I have an older machine - Riccar 3600 -- and the spool thread keeps breaking while sewing. What can I do?


Hello,
Here are some things to try.

If it's Your upper thread breaking:

* Rethread your machine
An incorrectly threaded machine can cause thread to break.

* Decrease the tension on your machine
The tension may be too tight for your thread.

* Reposition the spool of thread on the spindle
You know that little nick in the edge of a spool that’s used to hold the loose end of the thread? Your thread may be catching on this nick as you sew. Place your spool so that this nick rests against the bottom of the spindle.

* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly, usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

* Change your needle
Your needle may be bent or dull. The eye of your needle may have a nick in it that’s cutting the thread as you sew. Or your needle may be too small for the thread you’re using, in which case, change to a larger needle. And make sure your needle is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric.

* Change your thread
Your thread may be weak. Or your thread may be fuzzy and irregular, causing it to catch in the eye of your needle as you sew. Cheap thread tends to be weak and fuzzy, so make sure to
use a quality, brand name thread. And if you’ve been sewing with an older cotton thread, which can dry out and become brittle with age, try a newer thread.

* Check your presser foot for damage to the needle hole
A burr in your presser foot’s needle hole may be cutting your thread. Gently smooth any rough spot you find with an emery cloth.


* There may be a burr in one of your thread guides, in which case, you may need to have your
machine professionally serviced to have the part replaced.


If it's Your lower thread breaking:

* Reinsert your bobbin
Your bobbin may not be seated properly in its case.

* Rethread your bobbin
Your bobbin may be threaded incorrectly or the thread may be tangled.

* Remove some of the thread from your bobbin
If your bobbin is very full (if it’s hard to insert into the case, it’s too full), this may be keeping your bobbin from turning smoothly.

* Rewind your bobbin thread
If your bobbin thread is wound unevenly, this may be keeping your bobbin from turning
smoothly.

* Try a new bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

* Clean the lint from your bobbin case
Lint in your bobbin case could be keeping your bobbin from working properly.

* Check the needle hole in your throat plate for rough spots
A burr in the needle hole of your throat plate, usually caused by the needle hitting the throat plate, could be cutting your thread. Gently smooth any rough spot you find with an emery cloth.

I hope one of these solutions work for you.
