Does the needle move up and down?

If yes, Make sure your feed dogs are up...

If no, make sure your bobbin wind spindle is disengaged.
If it is, then it could be more serious and would need to see the doctor

I have a Brother sewing machine,model XL 6562, unsure of age, it's older. Today it only sews in reverse, cannot make it go forward. Help!!


well reverse button must be stuck. Try turning wheel to move forward and setting the stitch, like to zigzag. Oil it good, old machines get "thirsty".

I just replaced the motor on this machine and when started it only sews in reverse. To get it to sew forward, I have to push reverse lever down.


The motor may have to be reversed. The reverse action of a sewing machine is the feed below the needle is reversed not the machine.

Singer Quantum CXL: After I use the reverse button and release it, the machine does not go back to stitching forward. It stays "stuck" in reverse until I turn it off and back on again. :-( ?


the reverse mechanism is not releasing to go back to its normal forward position. if you do not have pressure on the reverse button and it feels like there is some slack with no tension on the button, the mechanism has not returned to the forward position. there may be a spring that has the end broken off to keep tension on the reverse mechanism,, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see what the problem is.

I am having the same problem. Initially it did sew forward, but now only sews in reverse. The large grey lever on the right front of the machine should make it sew in reverse only as long as it is held down, but mine sews in reverse only. Hmmmm....think there are many people with this problem.

While sewing and finishing seam I went in reverse to knot. While resuming to sew again the machine began making beeping sounds and wont move forward to sew.


Raise the needle, make sure no thread is caught ( try clearing out the bobbin area), then turn off the machine, re-thread the machine, then power the machine back on. That should take care of it. ;)

Will only Sew in reverse.


Could be several things -- motor hooked up backwards, reverse is stuck, etc. Is there a Reverse on the machine? If so, what happens when you activate the reverse. If it then sews forward I would say someone hooked the motor backwards. If there is no change, it would be a problem with the feeding motor or the circuit board. Suggest taking to a reputable service center for analysis. Good luck.
