Consew 206RB5 Problem

Hi, I just bought a used Consew 206RB5 and it sew's fine except one problem I can't figure out. When using heavy 138 or 207 polyester thread and a 23 needle, most of the time, but not always, after running a stitch the work won't pull away from the bobbin thread. After cutting it loose, I find a 4 inch or so piece of thread tangled in the hook. After advancing the machine slightly, it pulls out and the bobbin and needle thread are fine and you can go again.

I tried 69 nylon thread with a 16 needle and it does not happen. Even when it does this the stitches look fine it just makes pulling the work free a problem.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks
