Question about Consew 226R-1

I need to know how to time it. It just sits in one place and sews. It won't feed the material at all. Doing a small braided cord and have to tug it to get it sewn. Tried to raise feet and every thing went haywire!!

Ok, sometimes, my machine will stop moving in the bobbin but the needdle will still go up and down. This sounds like your problem. Lift the head and under the right side of the machine, you will see where the internal belt goes around the bottom (cam?). To the right of that, you will see two little swing bars on the end. Get one of the two bars to connect with one of the slots, press the button on the right (there are two buttons on the base of the unit to the right of the needle), and turn the wheel in the wrong direction. This will lock the cam and you can sew as usual.

If the feed dog stays in one position and just moves up and down, and doesn't pull the fabric through, press on the button in the bed closest to the needle bar. Hold it down and rotate the wheel. This adjusts stitch length/feed dog travel. There should be numbers on the wheel or under a flat metal panel next to the wheel. The numbers are for stitches per inch.
The problem you describe isn't timing, it's most likely stitch/feed dog adjustment.

On a baby lock 6300, it's threaded correctly but when running, the track (feed system)under the foot won't pull the material through. What can I check? There are no repair shops anywhere in my area.


1. It most likely is the foot pressure not set properly. With thick material it needs to be less and with thin material it is opposite. Just test a piece of like fabric that is rags.
2. Make sure that you clean out any thread under the plate as good as you can.
3. Check your tensions. The top should be around four. The bobbin tension has to be even with the top tension. (like tug of war) However, when you thread the top do it with the foot up to check for snags. Snags are a serious problem and cause the material from moving. Good Luck.

Bobbin thread too loose moves fast when thread is pulled


***Adjust the top thread. It must be fed through the tension properly. It is best to feed the thread with the pressure foot up. While threading the machine give small tugs to check for stuck areas. Fix these even if you have to replace the thread.
***Don't thread needle yet. Now, Set the pressure foot down. Give small tugs. There should be some tugs. Adjust the tension up and down while doing this to make sure the tension is functioning.
***Thread the needle and set the tension to four. Adjust if necessary as you sew.
That is your problem. However, I've placed a guide how to set the tension of the bobbin.

The hand wheel is stuck and does not move.????


HAND WHEEL NOT TURNING EASY
If the hand wheel isn't turning freely here are possible problems.
1. Clean bobbin area and ensure bobbin case is inserted properly.
Also, put one drop of oil on race (bobbin case sets on it).
2. Check/remove material from feed dog.
3. Remove the thread and rethread with the pressure foot up while giving small tugs as you go to check for snags.
4. Afterwards put the pressure foot down and give a small tug to check for excessive resistance on thread. It is a good idea to start at four. Now place thread in needle.
5. Put oil on needle arm and pressure foot arm.
6. When done it should work.
7. If this is still a problem the interior of the machine may need cleaned and lubricated.

The feeder on my 6690 won't pull material through


Look in your owner's manual. I'm sure your machine has a reverse feed button but don't know if you can manually disable the feed teeth. If it is so equipped, it doesn't drop the teeth. Rather, it simply causes them to go straight up and down. If the teeth truly stay below the needle plate level, they are likely out of adjustment and need to bereadjusted and raised.

Have a janome master craft 3000, just bought it used yesterday. Was sewing fine then all of a sudden it would stop pushing the material through like the needle was dull or something. Now it's doing it...


First do a process of elemination. Unthread the machine, both top and bottom, take out the needle. Place a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure, and depress the foot control. Does the fabric feed? If it does, then put in a NEW needle, thread up the machine, and see what happens. A dull needle won't prevent the fabric from feeding. If the fabric does not feed with no thread, then you have a pressure foot pressure problem, or a feed dog height problem, or a feed step motor problem, or possibly a board problem. If it only has a problem when you thread it up, then maybe you have a burr on the needle plate and the thread is hanging up on it and preventing the fabric from feeding. Check for all of these and if you still need assistance respond back.
