Dear Sir / Madam,

You will need to remove the screw and the tension plate as there is a lint build up behind the spring.
If there is no lint then just gently bend the spring so it fits a little tighter on to the bobbin case.

Kindest Regards,
Richard.

What adjustment do you need to make when the bobbin is throwing too much thread out.


Your tension is is too loose somewhere I guess, so will need tightening. Tighten the upper tension first to see if that helps before tackling the spring on the bobbin. If you need to tighten the spring on the bobbin then do it in tiny increments and remember where you started. Try taking out the bobbin and gently pulling by hand the thread from it; it should have a slightly tight feel on the correct tension..

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 have a consew 227 without reverse and can't tighten the bobin thread for the life of me. Do you think it might be out of timing? Please help thanks in advance.


THE SPRING THAT TIGHTENS AGAINST THE THREAD IS BENT OUTWARDS. IT MUST BE BENT INWARDS BY KEEPING THE TIP HELD UP WHILE YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE SPRING WITH A SMALL SCREWDRIVER. THIS WILL BEND THE METAL INWARDS. NOW, WHEN YOU TIGHTEN THE SPRING AGAINST THE THREAD IT SHOULD TIGHTEN AND LOOSEN AS YOU ADJUST IT. TO ADJUST YOU JUST NEED TO HANG THE BOBBIN FROM YOUR FINGER AND BOB IT UP AND DOWN. WHEN YOU ADJUST IT PROPERLY THE BOB WILL CAUSE THE THREAD TO EXTEND ONE INCH. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TIMING SO DON'T BE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS.

I need some more tension on the bobbins and i can't remember what screw i was to tighten


on the bobbin case is a flat metal black spring with two screws holding it on . the screw closest to the thread is your tension adjustment .make sure you have no thread behind this or it will change you tension.also if you take it off make sure if doesn't have a grove cut in it from the thread .if so you will need to replace the tension spring

The book on my consew 226r-2 says to adjust the screw to tighten or loosen tension on the bobbin, I can't see a screw, where is it?


It is usually a little tiny screw on what holds the bobbin in and where the thread passes through the bobbin. (The holder...not the metal or plastic bobbin spool of thread...it's sometimes called a shuttle to avoid confussion.) When you tighten or loosen the screw on the bobbin holder it puts more or less pressure on that metal hook the bobbin thread passes through.

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.

Tension


I answered this a couple days ago but don't know if it went through. I can sew through 6 or more layers of denim with my 226, no problems at all. In my 30 years in the upholstery business I never had a problem sewing leather, vinyl, canvas or multi-layers of fabric. The 226 Consew, the 111W and 211w Singers I had presented zero problems with heavy fabrics - and I don't consider vinyl "heavy".

You need to first of all check threading. If the machine's threaded wrong you're break thread. Also you need to oil under the bobbin case and the bobbin hook and the rest of the parts as well.
Then, loosen thread tension on top by turning the knurled knob that's on the spring that's holding the tension discs. Also loosen bottom tension on the bobbin case by turning the small, left-most screw on the outside of the bobbin case counter-clockwise. Do both with the presser foot down. Pull the thread(s) out and feel the tension. You should be able to pull the threads out with some little effort. Tighten both a little at a time until you get some tension. Run a couple seams and check where the threads meet in the fabric. They should meet in the center. Also check stitch length. If you're using 92 thread (is should be left twist), you should run the machine at about 6 - 7 stitches/inch. I'm running my machine at 5 - 5 1/2 with #69 nylon bonded, and 6 - 6 1/2 with #11 mono.
One more thing; if tension's too loose at the bobbin or top, the machine will jam in the bobbin and thread will break.
Go to www.consew.com and download a pdf owner's manual for free. You need to click on the 224. That machine, the 225 and 226 are the same.

THREAD BUNCHING UP


there should be a small flat screw on the bobbin case that needs to be adjusted - turn to the left very slightly to weaken or lessen the tension and turn to the right very slightly to strengthen or tighten the tension. there may be two little screws in the same place - on my bobbin case, the screw to turn is the bigger one and is closer to the thread opening. hope this helps!
