SOURCE: Threading & bobbin won't pick up

Make sure the needle is inserted all the way in with the long groove to the left.
Threading is through 1)the thread guide 2)The tension 3)The take up lever 4) The needle eye (left to right).

Remove the needle plate, thread the machine. Turn the hand wheel and watch the thread in the needle to see if it is above the eye of the needle. If it is, the machine needs to be retimed.

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.

Take the bobbin out and check for dirt or broken thread in the hole.

I have a consew 225 I think and when I try to bring the thread up from the bobbin the thread from the needle goes down and around the bobbin to bring up the bobbin thread and catches. It will not pass


Your machine probably needs to be adjusted and timed. But make sure you clean under the bobbin area before you try again... or take it to a machine pro

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!

try cleaning all that you can out of the bobbin case then try very carefully to bump it backward (opposite) with the hand wheel . Be careful not to knot out of timing. sounds like you have thread in between bobbin case and hook

Thread braking


Check the condition of the top pressure discs and the bobbin case tension. Check for wear in the hook - is the bobbin case seated correctly? Check the tension spring in the bobbin case. I doubt timing has anything to do with the problem. Unless the hook's picking up the top thread a little late, thereby "spearing" the thread. The hook could be catching the thread loop too late. Sounds to me like there's a parts or a small adjustment problem. You don't mention thread or needle size. That's another area of concern at times.
