Question about Craft Master Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I bought a used Consew model 22b-6. When it sews it is a fine machine, but somehow I have lost threading diagram, which includes the bobbin diagram. It will not make a successful stitch, or after 2 or 3 poorly balanced stitches the thread frays and breaks. The bottom tension wheel(my name for it)loses the thread frequently leading me to believe I have not threaded everything before that. I can't be sure I have the right needle, though this one came with the machine, or which way the hole should face, front to back or side to side. Can you help?

Im having a real hard time finding anything with the model# 22b-6.

how ever i went to . here they have a long list of most thier machines, and you can get the instruction manuals off this site also.
You might be able to find a similar model type, and see how it is setup on that machine, and then try your the same way.

as well on that site their are also part books if you ever need to order any replacement parts for your machine.. All the information on this site is free.

TIming Consew 210

I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.

I need a manual for a model 230 consew, I recently bought it from a friend, I want to learn how to thread it, and wind my bobbins, can you help me, unable to find one

You can go to the consew official website and download the PDF file for the 210 model. It's the same as the 230 r-1 (which i have). I found this information by calling the consew headquarters. You can also download a PDF with the full parts list for the 230 model specifically. This link may help

Tension problem, consew 225

The bobbin should have a thin metal peice that the thread goes under to create tension, the screw closes to end the thread comes out of is the one to adjust. If they were sewing with a light thread on the machine the tension on the bobbin is probably set pretty tight loosen it a little at a time, turning the screw counter clockwise. You might need to check your top tension also if it is showing a knot on the bottom. The bottom is to tight or the top is to loose.
