    First check thestitch pattern.
    When you use a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch the machine will sew backwards.
    Ensure the length is set to
    the right of 0 and that it is not in stretch stitch mode or buttonhole mode.

    If the machine is still only working in reverse, then it is likely that it is stuck in reverse and needs to be repaired by a technican.

Singer simply 3116 is stuck in reverse


That indicates that either the cam controlling it or the stepper motor controlling it is stuck. You're going to need it serviced to fix it.

My "new" elna type 722010 only sews in reverse.


What is the stitch length lever set to (4 in the diagram below)? these models have a lever that slides from positive to negative (ie) reverse, so you need to set it to the positive area, between 2 and 3 above zero. If you move it below zero then it sews that stitch length backwards.

My husqvarna classica 90 sews backward instead of forward. Can you help with an answer why?


Make sure the stitch selector is not set on buttonhole. If the machine has set up for a long time not being used it may be that the stitch length is stuck in reverse.

Will only Sew in reverse.


Could be several things -- motor hooked up backwards, reverse is stuck, etc. Is there a Reverse on the machine? If so, what happens when you activate the reverse. If it then sews forward I would say someone hooked the motor backwards. If there is no change, it would be a problem with the feeding motor or the circuit board. Suggest taking to a reputable service center for analysis. Good luck.

Backward stitching


Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

Machine sews only in reverse


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.
