TacsewKM1243A only sews in reverse how can i make it go fowoad ?


1. Take the top off your machine.
2. Move the stitch length back and forth and watch the arm inside .
3. By doing this you will see where the arm is connected. The arm is probably loose or stuck by old grease. Look on the arm for loose screws. Tighten them.
4. If you see old grease that is hard and dirty you will need to clean it off. Use carburetor cleaner. Use old rags and a qtip and toothbrush. (Don't brush with it anymore)
5. Recheck to see if the mechanisms inside move by the arm.
6. Put some material on the sewing machine w/o a needle or bobbin inside. Turn the hand wheel and watch the material. You will have to move the arm to different areas to see differences in the material movement.
7. Once the material is moving you can put new oil on all moving parts that touch each other. (steel against steel)
Remember loose screws, old grease are probably the problems.

have you checked your feed dogs are moving? have you dropped the feed dogs by accident? the feed dogs might need a drop of oil on the moving parts inside your machine.

Hi, have tried to use buttonhole feature on singer 4423. Dog feed teeth have dropped - won't come back up and the material isn't feeding though. Any help greatly appreciated.


Re: Reverse feed dogs on Singer 4423 Remove extension table so you can see switch on BACK of machine @ left side. Flip switch to raise feed dogs up. If machine actually sewing in reverse - check n Buttonhole adjustment. Reset it (located bottom right side machine) Jimmy

Something is wrong with bottom thread. It makes a mess of thread under the material when sewing. It seems to cut the bottom thread about every 5 inches and continue on.


First check that your needle isn't bent - it sounds like it may be dragging against the back of the hook. Dont 'pull' the material through - let the feed-dogs do that. Probably best to get it checked-out by a competent Bernina agent

Hi iam not sure how explain my problem with my sewing machine.when i try to sew the strings does not comes stright. it gets messed up the top comes ok but the bottom of the layer comes out all strings...


If I'm understanding the problem right it sounds like you have no tension on the bobbin. Take it out and see if the thread has any resistance when you pull it out. If you hold it up by thel thread and let it dangle and it just drops to the floor the tension isn't right. Check and make sure it is threaded correctly and tighten the tension. Test it again and when you dangle it, it should drop a bit with resistance when you hold it by the thread.

Also check that the top tension isn't too tight, but in this case it is more likely that the bobbin is too loose. And check to see if the dogfeed (the teeth that comes through the plate opening under the needle) is up and moving the material through the presser foot. If the material isn't moving at all it will sort of stitch "in one place" which will give you a bunch of threads all knotted up underneath. If those underneath threads are loopy that is a sign the bobbin thread is too loose (tension too loose)

My PE750D isnt picking up the bobbin thread and ripping the material, any ideas?


Hi,...either the needle is bent or damaged or the machine is not in time anymore. Try a new needle and see if that works. If it is the timing, it is time tosee a serviceperson.
