I thought it might be a good idea to compile a list of places where owner's manuals might be downloaded-- it might help with purchase decisions, or solving problems. Some of them are machine searchable, which can help supplement a poorly compiled index.

So, here's a partial list.



Old Berninas and Bernettes

new Berninas and Bernettes

Singer

Pfaff

Husqvarna Viking



Brother

Babylock Select your machine; click on FAQs and Manuals

Janome Select your machine. Click on Specifications. There should be a "Download Manual" link in the corner

I hope this is of use-- if you know where another manufacturer hides its manuals, feel free to add a link.

Super, thanks! Definitely a candidate for a sticky or useful link, IMO.

I don't know of any collections of Necchi manuals on the web-- at least not free ones.

I don't know if this link will be of any help to you or not, but for what it may be worth here's 3 pages of Necchi manuals. There is a fee listed for them though.

Necchi manuals

Another option I would definitely try is the Necchi Yahoo Group. I have an older (late 80's) Necchi machine and was able to get some information from them back when I first bought it. I found them very helpful and there are quite a few scans posted there, such as threading diagrams, etc, although I don't think there are manuals. But someone may be able to help you find one. That group is called Modern_Necchi. There is also another group for older Necchi machines that were manufactured in Italy.

I posted my Necchi manual to my blog some time ago (for easy reference for myself), it is there and it is free:-) scale it up if you print it out. I may look at it and depending what resolution I scanned put up better copies, but I don't remember what I used at the time prob 300.

Here is the URL in case you need a Riccar sewing machine manual, from the Riccar company.

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

Also most of the old White sewing machine manuals are on the Singer Sewing machine company website now, just because White is part of the SVP group. In order to find your old White sewing machine manual there, do a search using W for White.
