I have three possible solutions:
1. If sewing on heavy fabric or thru several layers, change needle to a larger size.
2. Make sure to let the fabric feed by itself, don't pull on it.
3. Make sure the upper thread is not catching on something (like the end of the spool), this will cause the needle to bend and break.

good luck!

What needles do you use for a Consew 206RB-5 for topstitching jeans very heavy cotton thread? The new designer top stitch. and Can you??

Hello Linda, The information I have on the Consew 206RB-5 is that it is a walking foot machine that has a needle system 135X17 also known as DPX17. Needles in that class range in size from 80/12 (narrowest) to 180/24 (widest) However, They do make larger sizes up to 200/25 in a leather point. Keep in mind, the smaller the needle size, the smaller the needle eye is. I make truck tarps out of 18 ounce heavy vinyl. I use a 140/22 size needle with a 138 size thread. As to what you are sewing, I think a midrange size such as 120/19 or 125/25 will do for you. It also depends on the size of thread you use. Good luck, I hope this helps you.

I am looking for a diagram of how to thread a Consew 206RB. The manual is very unclear to me. I have tried going over the pin on the right side of the tension disks and not going over it. Which is...

Don't know this machine but I would guess to go over it if the thread then goes down to the needle so you get a straight line down to sewing needle.

I bought a consew 230 industrial machine, but when I try to sew on it the needle breaks. What do I need to check, the threading, needle or what?

make sure the needle is inserted correctly
check the needle clamp screw to make sure it's tight
the needle is to fine for the fabric being used
also make sure under the needle plate there is no lint
also in bobbin area
also check the tension

Consew 206rb thread breaks thread shreds

Did you look for a burr near the point of the needle?

If the surface of our needles is a thin layer of chrome it could break lose from the main body of the needle when we hit a zipper too fast leaving a rough spot but I think that constantly pulling a tight thread through the eye of the needle would after a while cut that thin layer ...
