SOURCE: Singer 3116 won't go into reverse

here is a download for your manual

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/SINGER/3116-_M

pg 32 talks about sewing in reverse sewing.
but doesn't give much on trouble shooting other than hold the lever while sewing. If that's not the case, then I think your feed dogs are the issue. check your feed dog drop. pg 9 part 12

If you think the reverse lever is sloppy, professional action should be taken, (take it in to be repaired under warranty?)

I hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: Janome Excel 5124 reverse lever

If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.

SOURCE: reverse stitching on a singer 514, HELP!

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

SOURCE: how do I drop the feed dog on a singer sewing

They do not drop.

The accessories with this model include a darning plate, which is a plastic shield that snaps over the feed dogs.

If you cannot find the darning plate, poke a hole for the needle in the center of an index card and tape it over the feed dogs with blue painter's tape (does not leave a residue) and set the stitch length to zero.

Be sure to use a darning foot and lower the presser foot.

Singer 4166 suddenly started sewing only in reverse even when forward mode checked


open the top of the sewing machine. Then press the button or lever that changes the forward reverse mode. You may find that something got stuck there where it should effect the machine part. May a drop of oil on that spot can help?

Singer Prelude 8280 Sewing Machine stuck


Is the knob on the side, where you loosen the needle to rewind the bobbin, tightened? Also, there may be some threads in the bobbin case messing things up. Unplug the machine if you are checking the bobbin case.

My face plate will go backwards and put the needle all the way down but when I turn it away from me it is like something is stuck. The needle will not go down.


DO NOT TURN AWAY from you. You will mess up the timing and then you will need professional service. Why are you trying to go backwards? To reverse sew, you have a lever

If you are not able to free this easily, you really should consider taking it to a service technician to look at it in case you do more damage to the needle bar and elsewhere trying to fix it yourself.

Reverse stitch


On the 8280, the lever for reversing the stitching appears to be on the front of the machine, above and slightly to the right of the needle.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
