    Pfaff 1142 also with broken reverse stitch lever! First "repair" shop charged me $60 to clean machine (I had JUST done it), and told me it was "tilted" to the side on purpose NOT!... Second shop ordered the part in JULY and I'm still waiting for it to come in with no time frame from them :-( Best of luck to you - Take it to a Pfaff dealer so maybe they can get the part AND fix it for you :-)

Take it back to the Dealer.( He probably has a guarantee on the work he did). Let him show you how it works. If he won't do this then it is definitely time to find a more reputable dealer. If you paid for a repair it should have been repaired.

I have the same problem. |Until I can get it fixed \i have been tipping it back to straight and then pressing down evenly which seems to give me a little reverse. I think that the plastic extension inside is cracked. \i hope that this is a part that is acessible!

Hi, your reverse stitch lever is broken, it's plastic and should have been made stronger. Pfaff doesn't make it easy to get the front half of the plastic case off, which you will need to do to get to the lever. I haven't found anyone selling a replacement part. You can go my route and try a repair with epoxy.

My Janome JL250 is stuck in reverse


Probably the reverse mechanism has stuck. Only suggestion may be working the lever manually to see if it frees up. Other than that, it would need service or replacement.

Is there a reverse switch? where


Depends on your machine. Consult your owner's manual.

On a lot of older machines, the Stitch Length Selector will reverse if the lever is pushed all the way up. Some really old machines do not have a reverse, so what you have to do is sink the needle in the fabric, lift the presser foot, and swivel the fabric 180 degrees so you can stitch back over the previous stitches.

Newer computerized machines will have a button, lever, or switch sometimes labeled with a reverse arrow.

How to fix sewing reverse


try to pull the fabric as you hold the reverse lever.....pull away from front towards yourself. the dogs pull the fabric in the opposite direction. make sure your stitch length is narrow or "1" ...reverse only works with a straight stitch foot not a zigzag. Sometimes a machine needs a little help getting the reverse mechanism going......

Brother AE2500 reverse sewing lever is too stiff to move , how does this work please, bacause in the CD provided with this sewing machine , this lever (plastic) for doing reverse is being moved down t


Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

My machine will not reverse stitch. What can I do?


when you try the reverse stitch lever or knob and it doesn't respond then the machine needs to be checked to see if there is a broken part.

Looking for the reverse button on a necchi bu nova


There is no reverse button, it is a lever.The stitch length lever also reverses the feed dogs - when down, it runs forward - at zero, it does not feed at all and when moved up, it reverses the machine. Set your stitch length by loosening the thumbscrew on the vertically moving lever and sliding the plate into position while moving the lever up to the desired mark. Tighten the screw and move the lever down to sew - to reverse just move the lever up until it hits the stop to sew the same stitch length in reverse.

Lever is stuck in reverse


If the stitch length bar, which is located on the right side of the machine, is in the up position move it down to where the numbers are. Those numbers are referring to how many stitches the machine will sew in an inch. Therefore, if you put it on 10, your machine will sew 10 stitches per inch. It being up will cause your machine to go in reverse.
