Sometimes it is the spring, open the machine up and take a look at the spring, it may be broken or stretched. It should be located right where the reverse lever is, inside.

Use the reverse button. That's what it is for. Sew forward and then push the button and sew in reverse.

If you have a darning foot, you can use it (drop the feed dogs) and then you manually move the fabric around while stitching.

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.

My machine is sewing in reverse how do I get it to go forward


if your reverse is a lever then pull the lever down to normal sewing

if it's a button, try pushing it several times & try to see if that will help it unstick

if it doesn't use some wd-40 on it & see if that will work,,& keep working the button

I can't find reverse on my necchi 536fb. I inhereted the machine it's pretty old but works great. Sewing would be much easier if i had a forward/reverse button. Thx


Hi! Sewing is so much easier with a forward/reverse button! :-) I have a Necchi 536 fb also. Here's a picture of mine: efebd8b.jpg
The knob on the lower right controls the stitch length and forward/reverse. Push the center part in to get reverse and release it to go forward again.

You really need a manual for your machine--my Miss Sophia came from a pawn shop so I ordered one from relics.com (http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/PictPage/1923115740.html) for $17.00.

I love my Necchi--you can read about her at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com if you like.

Happy Sewing!

Material will not move forward


Make sure the presser foot is coming all the way down. Check your stitch length setting too.
