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.

On rmy riccar sewing machine..After I sew a seam the top stitch seems fine, but underneath the thread is all bunched up in a wad.


increase the needle thread tension
the term is bird nesting and is caused because the needle thread is not pulling the bobbin thread up

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 :-)

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!

Riccor model 939FA thread keeps breaking, not shure if it is threaded correctly, manual lost years ago, thread has been nesting on bottom of material, now just breaking.


Try looking for a manual for your machine here.
http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/
If your model number isn't listed try looking for a similar model or the number nearest to your machine.
Usually, sewing machines of the same brand thread in the same way. Hope this helps!

Looping underneath


I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini stages.....like you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

Sewing machine thread nesting


I have fixed it now the bobbin case didn't seem to stay seated during sewing or tangling i should say!. I decided to change the needle and from then on everything worked fine.
