I just bought a used machine. I had it set up by a professional sewing repair man. It worked perfectly. I sewed on it. Then I had to change the color thread, both upper and bobbin. Now, the upper thread will not get caught by the bobbin hook, therefore, not picking up the bobbin thread. I am pretty certain I have the upper threaded correctly as well as the bobbin case. I have followed every step of the manual and it just won't pick up the bobbin thread.

Re: Consew 206RB, threading problem?
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. sewman7

Consew 206RB-5 knee lifter installation with measurements and pictures: http://indsew.com/tips_and_guides.asp - There is a picture of how to put it together and there is a blue print with measurements how to position it and install it.
Hello Linda, The information I have on the Consew 206RB-5 is that it is a walking foot machine that has a needle system 135X17 also known as DPX17. Needles in that class range in size from 80/12 (narrowest) to 180/24 (widest) However, They do make larger sizes up to 200/25 in a leather point. Keep in mind, the smaller the needle size, the smaller the needle eye is. I make truck tarps out of 18 ounce heavy vinyl. I use a 140/22 size needle with a 138 size thread. As to what you are sewing, I think a midrange size such as 120/19 or 125/25 will do for you. It also depends on the size of thread you use. Good luck, I hope this helps you.
Every machine is a little different, but the basics are the same. Our 7th grade Home Eco. teacher taught us the first day... "...Start at the thread spool, thread guide, thread guide, tension, take up lever, thread guide, thread guide, needle. Learn this and you can thread any sewing machine"
she was right, As this hold true for my kenmore, juki, singer and new home machines. Same basics for industrial machines too.
It is probably because you need to move slower when moving the material around, as otherwise the thread beneath will just stretch over and make a new stitch. just slow down loads and should work! this probably isnt the right answer but hope i may of helped! :)
I can not get the top thread to pick up the bobbin thread on a machine I have just bought .It was sewing fine and then the bobbin ran out. I have tried every which way but nothing works which way should the bobbin be winding
Proper set of bobbins and tension set up vs. fabrics will sew you satified.Also incude regular maintenance cleaning of the feeds dogs with a brus,also the shuttle assembly need sometime to clean.Some threads and fabrics chips accumulates in the feed dogs and shuttles assembly.In setting up thread bobbins the thread should be clockwise direction as you pull out on slot coming out to the bobbins (as you shown in my inserted image manual).The loop thread should be propely in the sequence position same like in the image refer to it.If you use cotton/ polyester fabric in the begining of trial set tension dial to No.3 and stich to No. 8 to 12 any convenient to you Use needle No. 14 .Posible make a record if you are sewing different types of fabric mostly silk fabric is hard to sew adjusting to lower stich can posible sew satisfactory.
