SOURCE: Stuck in reverse

The reverse button is attached to link that moves a lever to make the machine sew in reverse. The lever is spring loaded so it returns to forward sewing when the button is released. Either the spring has come off or there is a bind in the lever(oil it). In order to solve the problem, the covers must be removed.

SOURCE: sewing backwards

Yes, this is a problem that a trained Viking repairman needs to resolve. It might need to have the zero feed position adjusted.

Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.

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

SOURCE: 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.

How do i change the lightbulb on my Janome 6019 sewing machine?


On most sewing machines the light bulb is located inside the faceplate on the left hand side of your machine.
http://www.janome.com/documents/File/ManualFile/6019QC.pdf
The faceplate is part number 17 in this manual.
One that has been removed, the bulb should be visible. You will need to look at the old bulb to see if it a screw type or a bayonet type, in order to replace it with a new one.
If this is not correct try the Janome website for advice, they have a forum and an ask Jan section for problems etc.

Janome machine going backwards instead of forwards. Goes forward if I hold the reverse button down.


sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine

I have a Janome 8080 that is out of warranty by a month and days. I went to use it and my handwheel will not let me move it backwards. It is not giving me a code that anything is wrong. I can't reach...


You should always move the handwheel forward. On some machines moving it backwards can throw off the timing. Try reverse and doing a couple of stitches to test.
