Question about Singer 2263 Simple 23-Stitch Sewing Machine
When I push the reverse stitch it works fine for about 5 stitches and then the needle hits the needle plate and will no long sew. If I force it to sew the needle bends or breaks. I have bent or broken 3 needles in the last few days and still have not completed the simple project I started. I have done this particular project many times and never had this problem. I have adjusted tension and tried different needle sizes, too.
My first guess is the needle plate has come adrift somehow. Remove it and inspect the area around the needle hole. It's probably got nicks and dings. Polish those out gently with crocus cloth (and also the ones on the presser foot). Clean the area around the feed dogs and reassemble. Put in a new needle and try again. If it's not that, then the needle bar may have come adrift, and that's a pay for it fix for most people.
If you can live with the lack of a reverse, you actually don't need it to lock stitches by reversing. See: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091124135216AAUyR3H
