Question about Simplicity Zig Zag
It has a lever on the base that can switch from sew to darn. Who made this? The Name label is missing. Thanks
Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!

I think #39 on this link is the presser foot lever.
#13 on this link is the instruction manual.
If you're looking for the foot control, that is #16 on the first link.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Reverse Lever isn't working...
Most likely the "dogs" inside the lever are broken off. Oil/grease on the metal rod cause chemical attack to the plastic lever and the "dogs" break. Singer should know to degrease this rod before assembly.

Remove yourcurrent presser foot from your sewing machine, and attach the darning foot asyou would any foot. Darning feet look different, depending on the manufacturer,but most will maintain a "C" or "O" shape using eithermetal or clear plastic at their bases.
Drop the feed dogs, or use a cover plate on your machine if feeddogs are not available. If this is not possible, adjust the stitch length ofyour machine to zero or as low as your machine will allow.
Slide your fabric or quilt sandwich into place below the darningfoot. Lower the lever of the darning foot, and hold onto the upper thread withone hand.
Take one complete stitch, and pull up the upper thread to bringthe bobbin thread to the surface. Take multiple stitches in the same place tosecure the threads.
Run the machine as you free-motion sew or quilt your fabric piece,using your fingers to move the fabric instead of the feed dogs, until yourstitching is complete. Replace the darning foot with your preferred presserfoot when finished.
