If it is like the other industrial machines I've used, here is the general principle:

On the machine there is a button with no label. Hold button while turning the handwheel toward you. When you feel the button depressl you can adjust the length. Hold the button in the machine and crank the hand wheel back to decrease the length of ths titch and foward to increase it. I usually put a notch on the fly wheel for my standard length with some nailpolish. Release the button and sew to test the length.

There are two buttons on the bed of the machine, and there's a swiveling metal plate at the top right of the machine,next to the hand wheel. Slide the plate open and observe that there are numbers etched on the round metal wheel under the plate. they go from 5 to about 22. That's stitches per inch.
One of the buttons on the bed is closest to the needle bar. You press that button down and hold it while turning the hand wheel. It will click and stop. Look at the etched number on the wheel under the plate. That's what the current stitch setting is. To change, keep pressing on the button and turn the wheel backwards, away from the machine, or clockwise, until you get the setting you want. Let go of the button and turn the wheel. The hold the button and watch to see where the wheel "clicks" again. It should be where you set it. I keep my machine set at about 6 per inch for most jobs. Works for me. Hope this helps.

    This was so helpful! I was actually able to change the stitch length, once! I can't do it again! It keeps locking up! When you say "Let go of the button and turn the wheel" which way and how much? Any other tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, cae

Consew 226 will not change stitching length when lock button is pressed. ie, the wheel will not turn. In the past, this adjustment has worked correctly. The machine has been idle for several years. Thanks, Joel

Shorten your stitch in reverse the machine can't do a stitch that long in reverse. Also google your make and model machine and the word Manual so you can properly learn to use the machine safely.

I would suggest taking the machine in to be adjusted and make sure they can work on that model machine, and if they can, then the same day you get it back, sew on it to make sure the problem is fixed.

I have a Consew 206RB and it feeds backwords. How can I fix this?


I have a Consew 206RB-1 , if I had This problem I would think the stitch length setting or the downward pressure of the upper walking foot is wrong.

If you set the stitch length to less than 0 it would be in reverse and feed backward.

My stitch length is not what I have it set for. I set it on 5


I assume you mean it stitches 6 or 8 when set at 5.
Because the number shown on the wheel says "5" doesn't necessarily mean 5. It's just an approximation. You'll note that when turning the wheel there's tension. The numbers are just numbers. It isn't a micrometer, its a sewing machine. So, you can simply adjust to get the stitch you want then make a mark on the wheel at that point. You may end up between 4 and 5, or between 5 and 6. No matter. Wherever you get 5 per inch is where the adjustment is.

In need to know how to adjust my stiching and needle adjustment/ the bobing is jamming(not stiching)


Stitch length is adjusted by holding down the small button in the bed and turning the wheel to the desired number of stitches. The numbers are either on the wheel, next to the belt pulley, or under a small cover on top of the machine. Hold the button and turn the wheel either toward or away from you to get the stitches you want.
Bobbin jamming is either because of incorrect top tension or incorrect threading. Go to www.consew.com and get a parts and operation manual for free for a 224. It 's the same as the 226.

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.
