The machine runs backwards instead of foward.

What is my Janome 415 feeding the fabric backwards? How do I fix it?

You have the reverser in the back stitch setting. When you do an over lock stitch you change the feed direction. It should be a lever. Some have a screw lock to keep it in place.

My machines stitches backward instead of forward.

There is a forward and reverse switch you are missing. If you have a pedal it is a matter of pushing the pedal the right direction.

My friend bought jenome sewing machine. It is working very well except that it only sew in reverse (backwards). Could it be that the reverse button got stuck or is there a setting that needs to be done?

button in centre of stitch length control is probably gummed up and stuck lubricate with penetrating oil and wind stich control backwards and forwards to see if centre knob starts to move. Remove arm top cover and do same to mechanism visible from above

Set the machine to button hole and use the "C" foot. The machine sews backwards first. When it reaches the correct length push the reverse button. Then when it has sewn the left side even with the right side push reverse again.

Dogs motor?

Does it have a stitch length dial which ranges from 4 down to 0 and then into negative numbers? If so, the negative numbers will be reverse stitches. Some machines have this functionality and its very happy for doing mending or stitching in awkward places to sew backwards without having to hold the reverse button.

However, if yours is only sewing backwards when stitch length is set to 2, 3 or 4, then its probably a drive problem internally. Don't think your machine has a seperate motor for the feed dogs, probably a gear driven shaft in the free arm.

Never used, just took it out of box. sews only in reverse. cannot get it to sew foward Please help. Thank you

often there is a button or a hook you have to push or pull out to get the machine to sew in reverse. Check to see if there is something like that that you could pop back into the normal position. Alternately in older models if you bring the stitch length adjuster past 0 it will begin to sew backwards so you could try that too. Good luck!

Janome machine going backwards instead of forwards. Goes forward if I hold the reverse button down.

sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine
