You can find a visual guide on the proper threading of your machine at http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Consew_Sewing_Machine_Threading/consew_210_220_threading_diagram.htm. What other adjustments are you thinking of? If you have loose thread on the top or bottom, you would need to adjust the tension. The best way to do that is to start by having a different color thread in the top and in the bobbin. Then this little lesson on tension works the same with any machine.
Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

How do i adjust thread tension on my consew 118 sewing machine? i threaded it and tried sewing some light leather 1-2oz and got a snake nest on the underside instead of a stitch line...what to do?


Sometimes the needle scarf is not large enough to protect the thread as the needle pierces the leather, so the thread is not pulled back up with the needle.

Try different needles and thread.

Also, be sure to thread the upper thread with the presser foot in the raised position so the thread will seat properly in the tension disk. To increase the upper thread tension, turn it toward a higher number and retest.

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.

Top thread keeps snapping on consew 230b


Top thread snapping. Do you have an idea of there it is breaking?

First I would check the needle throat plate and needle. If you have stab marks on your needle plate, examine it closely for a crack. (get out the magnifying glass or jewelers loop) I recently fixed a problem I had with an old singer that kept breaking the top thread by replacing the needle plate. The old needle plate was so damaged it had actually made a knife edge which consistently cut the thread right at that location.

Change your needle and make sure it is the proper size for your thread. Too narrow of an eye can shred the thread causing it to break.

Next, check anything along your threading process that could be catching or snagging the thread. A worn or chipped thread guide can be a real problem.

Also make sure your thread hasn't dropped down below your thread cones and wrapped around the thread spindle. This would cause extra tension that might not be readily apparent.

Good luck

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.
