All seems fine & threded correctly but will not stitch [knot]


from your description I guess that the knot is under the material
If so then the top thread is too loose
tighten it up a fair bit and use scrap material until you get it right

When sewing the bobber thread bunches up underneath, and breaks off. I have tried djusting the bobber tension screw, and upper needle tension to no avail. How often should I oil this machine?


1. Your bobbin should have one drop of oil on the race (little area that the bobbin rides on) around two bobbins that you have emptied.
2. The top tension is way too loose. When you put the pressure foot down pull the thread (top) to see if there is tension. Start at four is a rule of thumb.
3. I have included some rules to follow when you are setting tension.

Consew 230 sewing machine...will not pick up bobber thread


needle should be 16x257 Industrial machine needle with no flat side.
It does have a long groove on one side and a scallop just above the eye of the needle on the other side. On this machine the needle is inserted so that the long groove goes to the left and it threads left to right.
The thread breakage may be caused by a rough place on the hook. You need to turn the machine on it's back and look and feel all the way around the hook assembly. If you find a rough spot it can be removed with an emery stick. If it's not a rough spot, then the machine is probably out of time.
