That sounds like the button is stuck. You may need to get it looked at.

How do you expose thereverse switch Janome Excel 4023


This is a symptom of winding the bobbin to tightly with a stretchy thread (poly or nylon). I would break bobbin to remove it rather than risk damaging machine

Dogs motor?


Does it have a stitch length dial which ranges from 4 down to 0 and then into negative numbers? If so, the negative numbers will be reverse stitches. Some machines have this functionality and its very happy for doing mending or stitching in awkward places to sew backwards without having to hold the reverse button.

However, if yours is only sewing backwards when stitch length is set to 2, 3 or 4, then its probably a drive problem internally. Don't think your machine has a seperate motor for the feed dogs, probably a gear driven shaft in the free arm.

Hi
You can download some partial manuals from the Janome site.
This is for the Janome D'cor Excel Pro 5124:

Which should be similar to the ohter model number you mention.
Hope this helps!

Janome Excel 5124 reverse lever


If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.
