Open Question

Machine sews only backward

I just got a "new" refurbished Janome Harmony 2049. It sewed fine at first, but after the first time I used the backwards switch, I could not get the machine to sew forward again. Any suggestions? Should I send it back or can I take it apart and fix it? Thanks!!!!!

SOURCE: backward stitching

Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

SOURCE: only sews backwards

On most sewing machines there is a little lever that controls the direction that the fabric is drawn through the machine. The lever on yours must be in the 'reverse' position.

reach around the back of the head and see if it back there.

Make sure your stitch selector is set for straight stitch and not in one of the button hole settings.

Janome Harmony 2049


Darning would normally be done with the triple stretch stich, the one that is a zig-zag broken up into three stitches right and then three stitches left. See-through Zig-Zag foot. Zig-Zag set at it's widest. Feed set to about 1/16-1/8 inch (1.5-3mm) and darn by sewing forward a bit, adjust fabric, and then backward by pressing and holding the reverse button. Continue back and forth until you've created a darned box. For extra strength, turn fabric 90 degrees and repeat over same area.
