Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

Open Question

Machine is sewing backwards - husqvarna 4200

It was straight sewing when I first tested it, but after I pressed the reverse button, stitched a few stitches then let go of the reverse button, it continued to sew in reverse only. I've tried turning it on and off.

Yes, this is a problem that a trained Viking repairman needs to resolve. It might need to have the zero feed position adjusted.

SOURCE: Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)

It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

Look for the buttonhole lever, just in front of the presserlever, on the lefthand side of the machine. Pull it down and push it back to the top. Good Luck

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: 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.

How to fix the machine when its sewing backwards


Refer to your instruction manual on Page 22, the reverse stitching control buttons are on the extreme upper left and the one below it.
To start the reverse stitching press the upper left button and to revert to forward stitching, press the second left button below it.

What button do you press on the 415 to make the darning stitch work, all the manuals I have looked at have a typo that has hit a blank button


Hello
Darning is accomplished with the straight stitch in combination with the reverse button and the 'STOP' button. Reverse button is first on the left on display (looks like a fish hook) and the one used to sew backwards. The 'STOP' button is third from the left on the display.

Th e instructions are on page 37 or attached manual online

Happy Darning!

since the sewing machine was given to you, it might be a good idea to have the sewing machine serviced to see if there is a problem with the reverse and stitch setting.

My sewing machine is sewing backwards how to put it properly?


You've most likely accidentally hit the "reverse" stitch button, which sews in the opposite direction. The button will be marked by one of these symbols: grtartst_1.jpg

This symbol indicates the reverse stitch button. Just press this button and your machine should start sewing in the right direction!

My bernina patchwork 140 will not sew in reverse when I press the reverse button has the button gone bad the button hole won't sew ithe back stitch either?


Some machines will not do any of their automatic forwards and backwards movement type stitches in reverse, are you trying to reverse in straight stitch or a more complex stitch.

The Activa is a late model quality machine, do you have a Bernina dealer locally you could ring up and ask or take it to?

Husqvarna Classic 100 sew machine , pressed reverse button, now it sew reverse only!!! Please help! i pressed, i hold, turned off and on, nothing....... any ideas?


There is a permanent reverse position on the dial button behind the reverse where the stitch length is located. Check to see if you have positioned the knob to permanent reverse. The setting looks like a "U" turn arrow.

My husqvarna classica 90 sews backward instead of forward. Can you help with an answer why?


Make sure the stitch selector is not set on buttonhole. If the machine has set up for a long time not being used it may be that the stitch length is stuck in reverse.

Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machine 6020 sews in reverse


It doesn't need a part for this repair. The reverse mechanism inside the machine is seized from old grease which has hardened. It should be seen by a technician so the part can be cleaned out. Don't be surprised if he finds a broken take up slide or a cracked pattern mechanism.
Get an estimate before you have any work done and ask about a warranty for the work they plan to do.It may be less expensive to buy a newer machine.

Sewing machine only sews backwards


Make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward and the stitch length is the highest level that it can go. If that doesn't make it go forward, you will have to use the old hair dryer trick. Take the top lid of the machine off and heat the inside with a heated hairdryer. Work the stitch length and the reverse until it frees up.

Sewing backwards


The reverse button works by hitting it twice in succession to make it stay on (it lights up), and you turn it off my hitting it once again. If you just want to reverse for a little bit, you hold it down while you sew, then let go. Is the button lit all the time?
Having said that, it sounds like Nannayoyo needs to take her machine to a service centre - the electronics behind the button panel might need replacing. Is it possible the button is stuck in? Maybe phone a Husqvarna service person - not a sales person - and ask for advice.
Everyone - are your machines new? If yes, you need to go back to the sales centre straight away and get it fixed or replaced while you wait. If these are problems that have just appeared when your machine used to work perfectly, probably the best solution is to take it for a service. It might just be a speck of dust has settled on the electronics behind the panel and is causing unpredictable behaviour.
