Question about Consew 199R-1A Sewing Machine
I have a Consew 199R-1A. I am using Hemingway& Bartlett thread V-92 on 3 or 4 layers of Sunbrella acrylic canvas. I am using a #22 needle.
The Consew was purchased new, but I cannot get support from the seller.
The tension has not been correct from the time I received the sewing machine shipment, The top thread makes loops underneath the fabric .
I have loosened the bobbin until the thread pulls out easily.
I have tightened the upper tension until I can hardly pull the thread through the tension dial -- in fact I use needle-nose pliers to grip the thread to haul it through! With the tension that tight I can achieve a fair balance to the threads in zigzag mode. I know I should not have to do this, but I don't know what to do!
I believe this would be a wonderful machine if I could get this solved.
Can you help me?
Try this. reomove thread and bobbin from machine.. Set thread tension to the middle number. Rethread machine carefully making sure the thread is thru the tension wheel. Replace bobbin making sure that thread is thru it's tensioner.
Rule of thumb. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.
