Check the bobbin tension. You might have to turn the screw on the spring that guides the thread through the bobbin. Also could be thread quality, but check the bobbin tension first.

Your knee pad raises the presser foot and in turn releases the disc tension. The mechanism for this is in the front of the machine. If you can remove a nose piece this will be a lot easier to see,
There is a pin that pushes the tension discs open and quite often this has been removed or adjusted so a to not release tension when the presser foot is raised {more likely if this was a production machine} If someone took the tension control apart to accomplish this that my guess as to question 2.
The best part about Consew is the parts are common and the whole tension assembly isn't expensive. You can find service manuals on their website (see link)

Re-check the thread that is knotted. It's most likely the top thread causing what is called thread nesting or what I term "thread barfs."

Thread problems appearing on the top of the fabric are generally caused by the bobbin thread. Problems appearing under the fabric are usually a result of upper thread issues.

Remove the top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to the midway point.
