Make sure you have a good needle in and the correct way round, failing that you may need to retime the machine.

I have a Riccar 500FA. The upper thread will not pick up the bobbin thread. I have oiled, cleaned, checked the needle installation, the bobbin installation and the needle is brand new.


needle/hook timing needs adjustment
accredited service agent can fix or any sewing machine service shop should be able to do the job

I have a Riccar 706. I can't get the upper thread to pick up the Bobbin thread. What do I need to do?


Install a brand new needle (confirm it is installed facing the correct direction).

If it still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, the machine is probably 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

Machine saying to rethread the upper thread but not picking up bottom thread from bobbin. Constantly rethreaded upper thread still won't sew.


Consult the owner's manual to make sure it is threaded correctly. Install a brand new needle making sure it is installed properly. Also, be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the machine may be out of time.

My riccar 1900 won't thread; needle to bobbin


First make sure the bobbin-winding spindle (located on top of your machine) has been pushed back to the left for sewing.
If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread.
Next make sure your needle is inserted correctly, with the flat side facing back.
Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly
the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension.
Turn the handwheel towards you only and hold the needle thread lightly.
If this doesn't help solve your problem, the machine may have a timing problem.
