    Make sure the PRESSER FOOT IS DOWN! Oh my gosh, it took me 2 days to figure out why my bottom stitch was loose. It was driving me crazy...then I read the manual :/ I hope that helps!

    Wow! Your question takes me back ages! Hope you've found a fix! I have an industrial Consew, so - your bobbin case is loose. Very loose! It seems you know how to tighten your bobbin tension. Just turn it tighter, and check every 1/4 turn, until you get a stitch where top and bottom threads meet in the middle! Cannot believe you've not gotten help in Years! Love my Consew! By my calculations, it sewed 1/4 mile in building a Civil War dress. And it is Fast! Love mine. You seriously need yours to Work!

If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.

Actually, the majority of recommendations are incorrect. If the bobbin thread is loose, it's because the top thread is not high enough to pull the bobbin thread up.

Tension is a tug of war. Correct tension is when both threads exert equal amounts of pull against each other, the result causes the two threads to meet in the middle of the fabric. In your case, the top thread is exerting zero pull on the bobbin thread so the bobbin thread simply lays on the surface of the fabric. Raise the top tension and see what happens.

Top stitch is fine bottom is loose. Have tried adjusting tension but not working. If I get tension too tight breaks thread so I gradually change tension to no avail. Please help


Check your stitch sample. The loose stitches under the fabric--are they actually top thread???? Usually,stitch problems under the fabric is a result of a top thread problem. In this case, it could be bird nesting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread from the beginning.

Consew machine. My bottom thread has ball knots on the bottom. I have changed the needle and the top stitch is perfect. Please advise.


Re-check the thread that is knotted. It's most likely the top thread causing what is called thread nesting or what I term "thread barfs."

Thread problems appearing on the top of the fabric are generally caused by the bobbin thread. Problems appearing under the fabric are usually a result of upper thread issues.

Remove the top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to the midway point.

I always have problems with loading the bobbin, when I think it is loaded properly and begin sewing, it balls up and doesn't stitch properly on the back side of the fabric. Top stitch is fine, underneath...


the bobbin case has a small screw on the side for adjusting the tension, use a tiny screw driver to finely adjust the tension and sew on a scrap until the stitch looks good always turn the screw clockwise to turn the tension up and counter clockwise to loosen it

CONSEW 206RB5 TOP THREAD NOT FORMING STITCHES AND BREAKING


you have your thread tension too tight that's why it is pulling the bottom stitch all the way through it looks good from the bottom but not good on top. Its pulled the stitch all the way through the material.
I had my own upholstery shop 18 yrs and tension gets you every time.Just loosen the top tension.
