Riccar sewing machine 8500

I just inherited an older sewing machine. Riccar 8500. It will not pick up the bobbin threadt. It works great otherwise. Have a owner manual for model 8400 that I downloaded. Couldn"t find one for the 8500 series. Is there a trick that I am not doing?

    I have an older sewing machine that i am starting my grandaughter out on.it is a Riccar superLite. It will not pick up the bobbin thread and it pulls the material down into the feed dog. I have taken it apart and cleaned and oiled it. I do not have an owners manual.

    I have - check the threading - changed thread (upper and bobbin)- replaced needle- Is there anything else i can do.

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 :-)

Good luck.

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.

Looking for a Riccar Sewing Machine Model 600 FA #10148 instruction manual. Is it possible to get one or download one?


Here is a site for Riccar Owner's Manuals:

http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/

The quality of this manual at the following link is not great and it is confusing as although listed for the 600FA it has a different model number on the cover. Hopefully it is of some use. If not try finding a manual from the menu above for a more closely related model.

http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/315SU-315FA-Owners-Manual.pdf

Note that this same pdf is being sold on some sites for $14.99 USD.

Threading is on page 13 and 14 of the manual, I think, Have a browse through it. Hope this helps!

RICCAR MODEL 210B


I have a Riccar 210B sewing machine. It is about 37 years old. I have been the only owner and up to yesterday it was working fine. Today the motor seems to have quit.

Is the motor repairable? The tag on the motor says YM-40 80W 115V.

Thank you, Susan in Kailua-Kona HI
