When the needle has risen 2 mm from bottom dead center the point of the hook must be central to the needle and just above the eye.
----------- The hook should be at the top of its stroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on the upper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (the collar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle bar should slide easily up and down. --------- Also for instructions with pictures and diagrams.You can obtain the manual.To get manual click this link directly:--- http://www.manualsoncd.com/productdetail-42-Featured.htm ------

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

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.

How do you adjust timing on pfaff 138 sewing machine


Take the foot off the machine
Remove the needle plate
Remove the feed dogs
rotate by hand until the needle is at the lowest position
continue rotating until the needle rises 2 mm
the hook assembly should be passing exactly by the scarf of the needle
if not loosen the two screws that secure the the hook assembly and rotate the hook assembly by hand until it is exactly at the scarf of the needle and the distance between the hook and the scarf is .1 mm (almost touching the needle)
tightened the two screws, replace the feed dogs and foot and it should sew perfectly

Hook Drive Gear, Riccar #53741 how to take part off of sewing machine


Hi there,

Today I got such a machine (Riccar) for free from a lady I know. the only problem was that the needle walked against the bobbin (timing problem).

I screwed the sewingmachine open and after some screwing I saw that the part, Hook Drive Gear, Riccar #53741, was broken. Wat I did is I enscrewed two screws wich hold the part on the axe and with a bigger flat screwdriver I could just push the part from the axe, from the other gear. It looks more difficault then it is.

Now I have to get a new part, put it back and time the the machine so that the needle will go normal, at the right time, in the bobbin. Does anybody know the trick to do that?

regards,
Daan

Looking for hook gear for riccar eatons viking ezb 108798 and repair manual. my bobbin hook wiil not move


The gear is #53741 and is available at most sewing dealers. The part is also available wholesale at sewing machine services in Canada. Also fits riccar, eatons and babylock machines, so a babylock dealer could help. You will have to beg a repair book or photocopy same to ger mounting and setting instructions. We charge about 60 to install and time the part ONLY.
