Question about Sewing Machines
So, our Consew yesterday started to sound like there was some serious gear grinding. it feels like there is some strong metal on metal contact somewhere. it no longer runs smooth like it always has. i have oiled everything that i know to oil and nothing has changed. any advice?? thanks
Clean under needle plate....lint ec, also under bobbin case. If this does not help, it isprobably due for a service....if you continue to use it in this condition it may well do serious damage and need replacement.

Sounds like a bobbin case related problem. Unplug the machine, then remove the needle plate to get access to the black bobbin case. Inspect the underside of it VERY carefully for ANY marks or roughness. You can expect very fine 'scratches', but no chunks or rough bits.Now check the metal rim that the bobbin case sits on is PERFECTLY smooth. particularly look for any tiny burrs on the top or inside edge of the rim, or any sign of a needle hit. Should not be any! If there are, the mechanic shoul fix it at no extra cost cos he missed the problem. Whilst checking the bobbin case, look for ANY marks on the top surface of it. The SLIGHTEST mark WILL upset the sewing.
Hope this assists!
