Loose top stitch when in reverse 206 RB4 Consew

This machine works perfectly going forward, but has very big loops on the top side of material when going in reverse. I just purchased the used machine today, so I am hesitant to mess with the tension adjustments until somebody can point me in the right direction. Thanks, JR.

Do you know how to check the timing of your machine? It sounds like a timing problem to me. If you don't know how to check the timing:

take the side plate off, take the needle plate off, take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was. At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.

What am I doing wrong when the stitching on top of the material is ok and straight and the backside is knotting?


wrong bobbin tension , but amazingly its actually easier to adjust the top threads tension to compensate for it , use your tension knob to slowly adjust , try an inch , slowly adjust try an inch , and so on to get a top and bottom thread tension to match , this will need to be adjusted for each major change in fabric (aka , knits to woven )

Trying to serge and my loops are to big.


Usually on a serger if loops too big you need to tighten top or bottom looper tension or both. The tighter the tension the smaller the loop. Also if you're not running the material straight with the knife it can make loops in places that although the same size as other loops it's covering less edge so the loops appear too large in places.

The thread on the top side of my material starts looping after 4-5 stitches. I've tried every number of thread tension, and even on 0 it loops on the right side of the material, not on the back.


Check the tension on your bobbin thread. When you hold it by the thread and let it dangle does it just drop down without any resistance at all? If so then you need to tighten it a bit. If the bobbin thread is too loose it can not pull the top thread down enough thus puts the loops on the top side of the stitch.

iam reliable informed that you will need to change the needle by the one who controls this machine in our house for different thickness materials you need different size needles ,or you will get exactly the problems you describe ,iam told to look in the book and see whats suggested for this sort of material ,as some of the smaller machines will not go through tougher type materials and some jean material you will have to do it by hand with a special long needle ,the type of needle i use on my boat for the awnings and sail .

My material is not feeding through the machine, how do i set it to feed. it works in the reverse mode, but not forward.


If when you sew in reverse you have big stitches then you will need a shop adjustment if you have made sure beforehand that you have the correct stitch length to sew forward.

Have you tried to re-thread the machine? Check to see if the thread is in the take-up lever. There also might be a piece of thread or lint caught between the top tension disks.

Looping of stitching on the reverse of the material.


put the tension to about 4 and make sure it is threaded in a N shape and remember the thread catcher above the needle from the bobbin to left down round tension up to arm down the side.
