Question about Consew 226R-1

1 Answer

My husband purchased an old model Consew machine. It is mounted on a table and came with the instruction manual for models 225 & 226R-1. The machine will NOT pick up the bobbin thread. Any ideas?

Check your manual to see which way the flat side of the needle shank should face. With modern machines, it's usually to the rear, away from you, but with older machines there was more variation.

The most common reason the needle won't pick up the bobbin thread is because the flat side of the needle is facing the wrong way for that machine.

Hope this helps!

Looking at a used consew 226 and found a new 226 didnt know if there was much of a difference between the older and the new they look identical. and what year did consew first come out


Go to www.consew.com. Either send an email or call them. They're very responsive to questions.
I have a 226R-1, my second one. Both of mine were built in Japan and are/were at least 2- - 30 years old. I think current models are made in China. Serial numbers are under the bed on the front side of the bed.

Go to www.consew.com and click on manuals/224. The 224/225/226 are all the same. Or, go to www.singer.com and click on manuals for 111w/G155, or 211/w/G155. They're the same machines. Or, click on google and enter the search terms. There are a lot of places to get service manuals. Consew's are free. You may have to pay a few buck from other places but they aren't expensive.

Consew 226 breaking needles


I posted an answer to this a couple days ago. If the hook's hitting the needle you need to move it away from the needle. There's a small screw in the bottom of the machine that holds the hook mechanism in place. You need to loosen the screw and gently tap the assembly away from the needle. The hook should just pick up the looped thread as the needle bar rises. You can go to www.consew.com and download a pdf file showing the parts of the machine, also an owners manual. You have to click on the 224 machine. The manual's the same for 224, 225, 226. Or you can click on the 226R-3 - that's the same, too.

You can download a free PDF file from www.consew.com. There's a complete parts list but you have to click on the 224 to get the 226 manual. It's free - 10 pages!
