Hopefully this is only a mechanical problem that can be fixed with oil. If not it is either a stepper motor or circuit board. If you are not comfortable with removing covers and oiling then it needs to go to the shop.
Good luck!

I have a Kenmore Ultrastitch 8 sewing maching. The clutch won't tighten properly.


Has this been taken apart recently for servicing? It could be a keyed washer reversed or the limiter screw on the wrong side of a tang. It just needs to be reassembled properly.

I have an old sewing machine in my attic, i just recently put it to use. but i cant seem to find the reverse stitch button. im only 14, it was my moms sewing machine. but shes no longer with us, so im...


I've got a Kenmore sewing machine and the back stitch is a button/lever on the front of the machine. It has to be held down when you want to back stitch, because when you let it go it stitches forward again. Hopefully that helps, I'm not sure what yours looks like. ( I couldn't find pictures of your model online anywhere.) :)

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.

Reverse on my kenmore sewing machine doesn't work. can i fix this myself? can't afford sears $90 min charge. cheaper to buy a new machine and get a warranty if I can't fix myself?


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

Machine will only sew in reverse


Hi
Questions.
Does the machine only feed in reverse?
Will the machine feed as normal(forward).

If the machine will only work in reverse, then it is highly likely it is stuck in reverse and needs a good service to free it off.

It is very difficult trying to diagnose the problem without looking at the machine. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort the problem in no time at all.
