SOURCE: Reverse on my kenmore sewing machine doesn't work.

You need a shop adjustment, try not to take the machine into large stores because they immediately put a massive fixed charge on before any work is done on the machine, find a local dealer if possible they will sort it out for probably a fraction of the price

SOURCE: kenmore 385 was sewing then motor shut down no power, wheel turns fine just machine won't come on

it's very possible that the motor went out & would have to be replaced

SOURCE: My sewing machine now only sews in reverse

Maybe there's a problem with the reverse and forward button.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

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 sewing machine sew backward


Many Kenmores get stuck in reverse because the lubricant used has hardened up on critical stitch length/reverse mechanisms. Take it to a good sewing machine repair shop.
