Question about Consew Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Consew CP146R walking foot needle position lever moves and won't sew. What causes this and is there instructions to fix it somewhere?

When I turn the flywheel the needle will go up and down for a few stitches then quit and the needle position lever will move back and forth by itself. I want to buy the part and fix it. Is there info or video on fixing this?

Brother cs8060 needle hits needle or throat plate (when in default left position)


There is an arm that moves the needle arm back and forth. It has an adjustment that has a hex or screw that can be rotated to adjust the end of movement. The screw is usually locked with another screw tightening down on it.

Brother AE2500 reverse sewing lever is too stiff to move , how does this work please, bacause in the CD provided with this sewing machine , this lever (plastic) for doing reverse is being moved down t


Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

After back stitching a few times the feed dogs just go up and down but not back and forth. Why


Might be a damaged gear inside that's slipping. That's a pretty uncommon problem I think.. likely you need a repair shop for this issue.

I have a Bernina 180 sewing machine that the needle is not coming down?


This might be a bit hard to explain without showing you a video or photos, but here goes.
The 180 and many other Berninas do what is called a basting stitch. When a machine is doing this stitch the needle stops going up and down for a very short time this producing a long basting stitch. There is a mechanism on the needle shaft that has a black short lever on it. When the basting selanoid pushes in on this lever the needle stays in the up position. Simply stated this lever mechanism can stick if it is not oiled and your needle will stay in the up position and not move when the machine is running. Sometimes just pulling the needle shaft down, then letting it go so it snaps back up into place will lock the basting ever back in place. Once you get the needle shaft to lock back in everything will work again.
I can guarantee you that this is your problem if the machine runs but the needle stays in the upper position. I pose helpful Bernina videos on YouTube under the name JoeKind1958. It would be so much easier to show you how to oil the basting assembly on your machine. Contact me through that site and I can make a video showing you what to do.

Elna SU needle position lever is very stiff


this is probably due to lack of use and just stiffening up of this lever, best thing is to take off the top cover and get some triflow oil into the lever area, then try to work it back and forwards. First though, always set the stitch length and stitch width dials to zero before you try to move the needle dial, this applies to changing the stitch selector too, always turn width and length to zero first to avoid wear on these parts internally.

If you are happy to delve a bit deeper into your machine internally you might want to join the Yahoo group called Elna Heirlooms where other Swiss elna owners share their love and knowledge of these machines, there will be message thread on this issue there for sure.

Elna Envision 8007 feed dogs dropped and can't get get them to go back up ...the switch doesn't make a difference. Had this problem before and thought it was fixed. This is the first time I needed to...


Have you actually starting stitching a seam after sliding the feed dog control back to normal position?

In most cases, the feed dogs don't magically pop up until the machine has moved through a stitch sequence.

Put a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure foot, then turn the flywheel towards you two or three turns or use the needle up, needle down control button to make a couple of stitches - this should get them back.

My Elna SP suddenly stopped making the normal stitches regardless of whether I turn the stitch guide to "normal," "zigzag," or "overcast" mode.


Have you also turned the stitch width lever to 3 or 4 to form a swing needle type stitch?

Is this a Lotus SP or a Star Series SP? They should both have a stitch selector, a stitch width dial and a stitch length dial. Stitch width usually 3 or 4 and length usually at least 2 for a zig zag or overcast stitch. Also check the needle position dial, have you perhaps moved this off centre and not moved it back?

Older 830 will not zig zag stitch. leavers and gears move fine. The needle moves back and forth - left and right but it doesn't pick up thread from the bobbin on the left side so it does a strait stitch...


Firstly, make sure you have fitted a new needle and that you have cleaned/oiled the hook race. Unfortunately, if you are finding that the machine will pick-up the thread and stitch OK when the needle is one side of the stitch-plate, but not when its on the other, it suggests that the timing/synchronisation is out and will need to be professionally adjusted. You can check the timing by adjusting the needle to its right-most position, remove the bobbin case, rotate the handwheel until the needle has gone down through the stitch-plate and is just about to come up again. Stop there. Tip the machine slightly back and release the black plastic hook/shuttle retainer by pressing the metal lever on the top-left side of the bobbin door, so that the hook/shuttle retainer pops open. Drop the hook/shuttle retainer, but leave the hook in place ... be careful that it doesn't drop out and slowly rotate the handwheel until the pointed part of the hook/shuttle rotates clockwise to the place where its point is directly behind the needle. Look carefully and you should see that the point of the hook/shuttle is just above the top of the thread hole in the needle. If it's much lower or higher, the timing is out and will need to be adjusted.

Inspiration 4205 stitch length won't change


Are you certain that the pattern selector is set for straight stitch and not buttonhole?

Turn the handwheel so that the needle is up and the take-up lever is in it's highest position. Then turn the pattern selector knob through all of the patterns back and forth a few times. Finally, select straight stitch and see if the length works. If not, need to take it to a repair person to determine the course of action.

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.
