How do i adjust my consew 105 so the stitches do not loop on the bottom?


If the thread is looping under the fabric, it is a top tension issue.

Make sure you are using a new needle and that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.

Verify it is threaded correctly and that the thread is firmly seated in the tension disks.

If the top thread is still looping under the fabric, then the upper tension is too loose.

TIming Consew 210


I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

How do i adjust thread tension on my consew 118 sewing machine? i threaded it and tried sewing some light leather 1-2oz and got a snake nest on the underside instead of a stitch line...what to do?


Sometimes the needle scarf is not large enough to protect the thread as the needle pierces the leather, so the thread is not pulled back up with the needle.

Try different needles and thread.

Also, be sure to thread the upper thread with the presser foot in the raised position so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. To increase the upper thread tension, turn it toward a higher number and retest.

I have a consew 227 without reverse and can't tighten the bobin thread for the life of me. Do you think it might be out of timing? Please help thanks in advance.


THE SPRING THAT TIGHTENS AGAINST THE THREAD IS BENT OUTWARDS. IT MUST BE BENT INWARDS BY KEEPING THE TIP HELD UP WHILE YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE SPRING WITH A SMALL SCREWDRIVER. THIS WILL BEND THE METAL INWARDS. NOW, WHEN YOU TIGHTEN THE SPRING AGAINST THE THREAD IT SHOULD TIGHTEN AND LOOSEN AS YOU ADJUST IT. TO ADJUST YOU JUST NEED TO HANG THE BOBBIN FROM YOUR FINGER AND BOB IT UP AND DOWN. WHEN YOU ADJUST IT PROPERLY THE BOB WILL CAUSE THE THREAD TO EXTEND ONE INCH. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TIMING SO DON'T BE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS.

Tension discs/ shredding needle thread


Hi,
Your knee pad raises the presser foot and in turn releases the disc tension. The mechanism for this is in the front of the machine. If you can remove a nose piece this will be a lot easier to see,
There is a pin that pushes the tension discs open and quite often this has been removed or adjusted so a to not release tension when the presser foot is raised {more likely if this was a production machine} If someone took the tension control apart to accomplish this that my guess as to question 2.
The best part about Consew is the parts are common and the whole tension assembly isn't expensive. You can find service manuals on their website (see link) http://www.consew.com/Files/112347/InstructionManuals/206RB-5.pdf

Thread breaks off


Where does it break? You change tension at the top via the tension discs the thread passed through, and at the bottom by adjusting the small screw on the bobbin case - the screw on the front part of the spring. Thread size matters as well as needle size. For everyday upholstery I use #69 nylon thread, and "G" bobbins.
If the thread's breaking at the hook you may need to adjust timing. But most commonly thread breaks because of improper tension, threading, needle or thread size.

Loose top stitch when in reverse 206 RB4 Consew


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.

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.
