Hi, Bill_prebble before testing any electrical component in the Reverse Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. The reverse electric motor fuse was blown.
2. Reverse button stuck in the depressed position.
3. Run/off switch in the off position.
4. Bike not in neutral.
5. Faulty relay, reverse actuator, solenoid, regulator module,
6. Wire connectors in the reverse system faulty due to corroded, bent, broken, loose, retracted or missing wire pins and sockets.
7. Reverse cables not properly adjusted.
8. Faulty reverse lever components.
9. Reverse lever not in the on position.
10. The side stand is in the down position.
11. The reverse motor has failed and needs an overhaul.

1/28/13 - I have Janome Harmony 2049 that was initially sewing forward with no reverse and then after about 12 inches of sewing would ONLY sew in reverse. After spending an hour getting the plastic housing off...I was able to locate the shaft that made the reverse. It needed lubrication and after working it in and unjamming the part from the down position, the forward and reverse now work! Huh, right? Hope it continues to work well. It is a smooth running machine, otherwise. Good luck!
