Question about Sewing Machines
I'm in the middle of an upholstery job and my consew stopped working correctly. I believe everything is threaded correctly. And I've used this machine on several occasions with no issues what so ever. I'm assuming it may have something to do with the timing. Everything was going just fine then all of a sudden I noticed that it was just leaving holes in the fabric while sewing. I figured the bobbin might have been out of thread. So I checked it and still had more than a half spool left. I reinserted it and the upper thread pulls the bobbin thread up without any issue. But whenever I start to sew it still just leaves a trail of holes in the fabric. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

IT PROBABLY IS THREADED INCORRECTLY. GO SLOWLY BY THE DIAPHRAGM AND MAKE SURE IT IS THREADED CORRECTLY. ALSO MAKE SURE SPOOL PIN HOLDERS ARE IN PLACE THAT HELPS TO GUIDE THE THREAD CORRECTLY.

SOURCE: Designer One "broken thread"
If the upper thread spool is spinning allowing slack to the inlet of the tension assy and the machine gives a broken thread indication shortly afterward, the pre-tension assy needs to be adjusted. If the machine has the original "snap in" tension assy that was in the first generation of Designer 1, have it replaced with the modern "lay in" tension assy. Slack at the spool should never cause a broken thread indication as long at the thread is in the pre-tension assy.
Sulky thread will work as well in a Designer 1 as any other embroidery thread as long as it is properly adjusted.
One thing that you can look for, when the machine is sewing, watch the thread as it passes out of the left hand side of the tension disks. It should exit the disks at the 9 o'clock position. If it starts to drift up to the 10 or 11 position and then you get a broken thread warning, the pre tension must be increased.

SOURCE: Consew 206RB, threading problem?
This machine has a safety clutch which is designed to protect the hook
mechanism.To access it, place the machine on it's back. About 8-10
inches from the right side you will see an assembly on the main shaft.
You need to hold this assembly with a push button located on the bed of
the machine while you turn the handwheel. It will click in place when
it is in the correct position. Once you've done this the machine should
be back in time so it will sew.Hold the top thread ,turn the handwheel
and draw the bottom thread up before you begin sewing. Place a piece of
fabric under the foot , turn the wheel by hand to make sure there is no
binding and that the thread is being picked up.

I once heard from a great sewing instructor that if the problem is on the back of the fabric then it is a spool to needle problem.... if the problem is on the top of the fabric, then it is a bobbin problem. Check your machine for dust and stray threads. Check your bobbin casing for dust and stray threads.
