Safety clutch may be disengaged. Push and hold down the right hand button on bed of machine and turn handwheel away from you until it comes to a stop. Still holding the button down, force the handwheel away from you until you hear a loud click. Release button and now see if you can pick up needle thread.

SOURCE: Consew 206RB, threading problem?

This machine has a safety clutch which is designed to protect the hook mechanism.To access it, place the machine on it's back. About 8-10 inches from the right side you will see an assembly on the main shaft. You need to hold this assembly with a push button located on the bed of the machine while you turn the handwheel. It will click in place when it is in the correct position. Once you've done this the machine should be back in time so it will sew.Hold the top thread ,turn the handwheel and draw the bottom thread up before you begin sewing. Place a piece of fabric under the foot , turn the wheel by hand to make sure there is no binding and that the thread is being picked up.

I have a consew 225 I think and when I try to bring the thread up from the bobbin the thread from the needle goes down and around the bobbin to bring up the bobbin thread and catches. It will not pass


Your machine probably needs to be adjusted and timed. But make sure you clean under the bobbin area before you try again... or take it to a machine pro

I was sewing all was going fine and suddenly it wont pick up the bobbin thread everything seems to be moving what do i do i tried to reset clutch but when i push the button it wont move back ???? help...


perhaps you had a little jam of fabric or thread and threw off the timing of the hook that helps pull up the bobbin thread. the manual shows you how to loosen the screws and move the hook back. Might take a couple of times and be sure to tighten the 3 set screws well when you get it right. They are under the machine, so you have to loosen the belt and lay it on it's side.
Can't remember where I downloaded the manual last year, but on page 13 it shows the instructions. The photos are bad, so watch carefully. Try consew.com and download 206rb-5 manual. looked the same to me.
Not easy to do, use a flashlight and follow exactly and it will work. I did it the first time and I am not a guy and not a mechanic.

My husband purchased an old model Consew machine. It is mounted on a table and came with the instruction manual for models 225 & 226R-1. The machine will NOT pick up the bobbin thread. Any ideas?


Check your manual to see which way the flat side of the needle shank should face. With modern machines, it's usually to the rear, away from you, but with older machines there was more variation.

The most common reason the needle won't pick up the bobbin thread is because the flat side of the needle is facing the wrong way for that machine.

Hope this helps!

The book on my consew 226r-2 says to adjust the screw to tighten or loosen tension on the bobbin, I can't see a screw, where is it?


It is usually a little tiny screw on what holds the bobbin in and where the thread passes through the bobbin. (The holder...not the metal or plastic bobbin spool of thread...it's sometimes called a shuttle to avoid confussion.) When you tighten or loosen the screw on the bobbin holder it puts more or less pressure on that metal hook the bobbin thread passes through.

Tension


I answered this a couple days ago but don't know if it went through. I can sew through 6 or more layers of denim with my 226, no problems at all. In my 30 years in the upholstery business I never had a problem sewing leather, vinyl, canvas or multi-layers of fabric. The 226 Consew, the 111W and 211w Singers I had presented zero problems with heavy fabrics - and I don't consider vinyl "heavy".

You need to first of all check threading. If the machine's threaded wrong you're break thread. Also you need to oil under the bobbin case and the bobbin hook and the rest of the parts as well.
Then, loosen thread tension on top by turning the knurled knob that's on the spring that's holding the tension discs. Also loosen bottom tension on the bobbin case by turning the small, left-most screw on the outside of the bobbin case counter-clockwise. Do both with the presser foot down. Pull the thread(s) out and feel the tension. You should be able to pull the threads out with some little effort. Tighten both a little at a time until you get some tension. Run a couple seams and check where the threads meet in the fabric. They should meet in the center. Also check stitch length. If you're using 92 thread (is should be left twist), you should run the machine at about 6 - 7 stitches/inch. I'm running my machine at 5 - 5 1/2 with #69 nylon bonded, and 6 - 6 1/2 with #11 mono.
One more thing; if tension's too loose at the bobbin or top, the machine will jam in the bobbin and thread will break.
Go to www.consew.com and download a pdf owner's manual for free. You need to click on the 224. That machine, the 225 and 226 are the same.

Thread braking


Check the condition of the top pressure discs and the bobbin case tension. Check for wear in the hook - is the bobbin case seated correctly? Check the tension spring in the bobbin case. I doubt timing has anything to do with the problem. Unless the hook's picking up the top thread a little late, thereby "spearing" the thread. The hook could be catching the thread loop too late. Sounds to me like there's a parts or a small adjustment problem. You don't mention thread or needle size. That's another area of concern at times.
