Bspring- I have found there is a suppressor inside the machine. If you email me at my business email I will forward the info to you so you can repair it your self.

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: Hello I have an old Riccar 6800 sewing machine

Hiya, the threading for this machine is pretty standard so you won't be going wrong there. Have you used a sewing machine before? The tension dial (on the extreme left) should be set at 5. The other dial to your left should be on blue zigzag with orange broken line. The dial on the right should be set at 0 and the bottom one on 2 - 3. I've been looking for a manual for this machine as I inherited this one. It took me ages to suss straight sewing out. Another thought is take it to a repairer and ask for a quote. Good luck.

Riccar 555su was given to me, is there an on/off switch? Can I remove a knee controller from cabinet and replace with a foot controller? Thanks.


Most foot controllers are attached to the cabinet to be used as a knee control. If yours appears to be a foot pedal and the cords are long enough, you can probably remove it from the cabinet and try it on the floor.

Why riccar a303 sewing machine just stop running?


Difficult to advise. Can you operate it manually by turning the handwheel clockwise? Does the motor make noise when you step on the foot control but the needle does not move?

It appears to be a mechanical machine. If so, it could need a good cleaning and oiling. That is probably a good place to start. (Consult your owner's manual and use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil.) Could be a multiple of other things, ie loose/broken belt, foot control failure, carbon brushes or capacitor, electrical problem, motor problem... Probably best to take it in for service.

A model # would help. Do you have a manual? You can look for the riccar website and search the manual. If its available as download, you can use the CTRL+F function to "find" words like lock, needle, or other things that can narrow it down.

The foot pedal has nothing to do with this. You machine is telling you that you have the wrong presser foot on the machine for what you are trying to do.


Do you have your manual? Mine tells me what foot goes with which stitch.
