    Belvedere/Adler made by Riccar

    I have a badged Belvedere/Adler sewing machine made by Riccar. I'm trying to find a manual/ instructions. I am also looking for the bobbin type and a bobbin case.
    I will try and post pictures.
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome. A picture would help - we like pictures.

    Have you looked at https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...e-t271364.html or https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...a-t299661.html

    A couple of sites that have manuals are https://www.tias.com/vintage-sewing/machines/manuals/ and http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine...g_Machines.htm

    Probably it is because they are too large. There is a size limit that is well below what most phones and cameras take.

    Thank you for the pictures.

    It almost appears that maybe the model is a "RZ 113" but I couldn't find anything with that search term. I think if you look at the first link in my post #2 it will have information about the bobbin and bobbin case, even the needles it uses.

    If you look at the last link in my post #2, you will see a "Deluxe Zig Zag # 18" that appears very similar to your machine. My guess is that the dial closest to the nose is for the decorative stitches your machine has. I'm not sure what all the dials, buttons and levers are for. The buttons on the bed of the machine are for raising and lowering the feed dogs. Maybe the smallest one on the arm is for the light?? I have never ordered anything from sewusa, but I sure reference it a lot.

    You might want to check out the site themadpatter gave, in particular https://www.manualslib.com/brand/ric...g-machine.html There are quite a few but they might have one for your machine, but it might take some time to checking them out. Riccar may have used a different number for the Riccar brand versus the machines to be badged.

    Good luck on bringing this vintage machine back to working order.
