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.

SOURCE: The Reverse stitch button

The feed mechanism needs to be oiled. Take off the bottom cover and look for any place where two parts move against each other. Some binds can be very difficult to remove. Try spraying everything with a light weight oil (I like Tri-Flow) and let them soak over night. Then manually try to move the feed dogs with your hand. Hopefully it will break loose.
Good luck!

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.

SOURCE: Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.

SOURCE: Feed dog lever not working on my Kenmore 385 24 stitch machine

I surfed around this site for various suggestions, finally took the bottom plate off and cleaned and oiled all the parts along that rod that goes right across (think it's a drive bar that rotates). Ran the machine without thread in for a few minutes to let the oil soak in. Machine now works fine.

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.

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.

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

My back stitch wont reverse


Has the machine been unused for a 'long' period of time? Some of the Janome machines did a similar thing - the oil becomes 'sticky'on the mechanism attached to the reverse lever. Can often be fixed by removing the free arm cover and spraying a little Innox (using the supplied straw) in the area where the lever operates. Work it back and forth .... it may come good. It could need tobe dismantled if it wont free up however. Good luck! :)

I have a Janome sewing machine, #423S that I have never used. It is second hand. It sews nicely, but I cannot find the reverse lever on it


The reverse lever should be below the stitch width lever. (It's a wide lever in its own recessed area. just above the level of the extension table.) See page 2 (page 4 of the PDF) available here: http://content.janome.com/documents/File/ManualFile/Inst%20book%20419S%20&%20423S1.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Sewing machine wont stitch in reverse, needle hitting bobbin feed.


since the needle is hitting the bobbin feed it has to be replaced, if the machine continues to hit the bobbin feed the most likely the machine is out of time & has to be retimed at a sewing machine repair shop
they would also be able to see why the machine won't stitch in reverse

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

I've forgotten how to drop the feed dogs-can you help


There is a little lever on the back of the free arm at the bottom. Push the lever to the right and that will lower the feed dog.
