Question about Consew 199R-2A Sewing Machine
"turn on the machine and nothing happens"
That is the way sewing machines should work. A sewing machine should not begin running when it is turned on. There is usually a foot pedal or something (like the gas pedal in a car) that governs the start, speed, and stop.
Do you not have a manual for your machine? Very important piece of information for how to use your machine.

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.

You may have bent the needle, replace that first.
Have you wound a new bobbin? Sometimes they wind poorly.
Check the hook race for thread "nests". (Bobbin casing)

Send an email to me at email@example.com and maybe I can help. I'd need more info. on your ploblem. I'll start you off with these two things assuming that your difficulty is with the bobbin as you state "underneath & threading". Notice the white painted dot on the the machine arm at the drive pully. Notice the white dot on the pully. Allign these two. Tilt the entire machine head back so that it is resting on the word verticle finger stop (or get underneath the machine). Bobbins are loaded by pulling the small chrome lever w/ your thumb & index finger (this is an unlocking latch). Do so moving it outward to about 90 degrees. Usually while you do this the holder and bobbin just pop out. To install u just snap then on. It's placed when u hear a click. For more info email me directly. Doug
