The reverse gear could be damaged or come loose,, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked

My kenmore 22 stitch sewing machine I bought in 1990; it doesn’t reverse anymore. How do I fix it


Those older machines do need regular cleaning and oiling. I suspect the oil has dried and caused the switch mechanism to seize. As time goes on, more parts may seize, so it's probably important to get it addressed soon. It could eventually damage the motor if the motor is trying to move seized parts. Well worth the expense if you value your machine.

Viking/Husqvarna 5710 sewing machine is stuck in reverse. Reverse button isn't stuck, but doesn't pop out by itself anymore. Stitch dial isn't in between stitches. Put wd40 in the insides, didn't help


Uh-oh. Don't use WD-40 on your machine... WD-40 becomes sticky with time and will seize the mechanics...

Wondering if there is a spring under the R button that perhaps is broken or collapsed.

Ms3015 will not reverse anymore


First thing to remember: The reverse will only function as long as the button is pressed.
Second: The stitch must be above zero. The feed dogs must be functional.
Third: The moving parts inside needs to be cleaned of built up dry grease. Do this with carburetor cleaner. Move around and try the machine without closing the machine up. If it works ok then grease it up and close it. If it doesn't work as of yet then contact your repairman.

Just bought this used machine, it worked fine in tryouts but after transit the stitch width switch is not working. It automatically goes to the reverse position and will not dial down to any widths.


the forward /reverse control sets the stitch length(width) the closer to neutral the smaller the stitch
full forward or full reverse is max stitch length

I have a Husqvarna Optima 620, and as of today, it only runs backwards (no matter which stitch pattern I choose). The reverse button moves freely, but it doesn't do anything, so I think something's...

You start by getting a service manual. Soundss like the reverse switch quit working. If you have electricial knoledge , bypass or jump pout switch in reverse direction( with it upnplugged, of course, to confirm dianoisis.

Your machine needs to be serviced. The reverse assembly is probably starting to seize.

Need 6270 book cannot get it to work . Keeps going in reverse.


It sounds like you machine pattern selector is stuck inbetween slections or your reverse block is frozen. These machines get very gummy and can require a lot of work in cleaning to get them back working again. You might want to have a repair shop take a look at it. Not to many of these machines around anymore.

Singer simple 3116 will not reverse


Sounds like spring or something disconnected from the lever. Take it in to your dealer or look at yourself carefully.
