If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.

Sews in reverse and then forward when the reverse lever is pressed.


Incorrect polarity at the plug, or the drive belt is crossed into a figure 8 so it is running the wrong way.

You can also try pushing the knob the right way as you depress the pedal.

Backstitch isn't working


First, ensure that you are pressing the reverse lever all the way in and holding it. A light touch won't work on this model.

There is a spring loaded cam in the feed system which can get gummed up when the lubricant gets old. It needs to be carefully taken apart, solvent cleaned, re-lubricated and reassembled. A knowledgeable repair person needs to perform this operation.
