Question about Sewing Machines
I bought this machine used. It seemed to work at the sellers house. I got it to work ok this morning, but now in the evening it is acting up like crazy. I turn if off/on and that doesn't help. It sometimes will sew the correct stitch then goes off and sews something else. It starts to go in reverse without me touching anything. Help.

MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.

Your feed dogs sound like they are getting stuck,chec whether they are on the down position,and also make sure that you have cleaned any lint that builds up in the bobbin area, if all fails it will have to go into the technician,

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.

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.
