Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Sears Kenmore 1751 siz-zag sewing maching will only sew in reverse. A few minute ago it was sewing fine in both directions. The button I push to make it sew in reverse doesn't feel like it is ''connecting'' now. Also, the stitch length won't change now.

These older cam machines have grease in then that can jam up the cams if you can get the covers off soak the machine with wd-40 and play with the reverse and stitch length if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then put sewing machine oil in the machine

Singer 4411 sews fine forward and reverse in straight stitch, in zigzag top thread looks fine on top, but all loopy underneath and will only reverse stitch 1 or 2 zigs or zags


check that the bobbin underneath has the same thread as the upper bobbin and that you push all the way on the lever when sewing back and also, go full speed as this happened to me and that was my mistake. Hope this will help you :)

Check the position of the Button Hole Stitch adjuster that is directly under the stitch length control. It looks like a flat head screw and should be straight up and down for normal sewing.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

Started sewing backwards now not moving material at all


Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.

Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.

Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

Singer Athena 2000 won't zig zag


Did you switch the metal plate to one of the ones that won't allow left/right movement by any chance?
If the wrong plate it in -The machine somehow figures out that the plate won't allow the needle to move in the left/right directions and only does a straight stitch or funky other stitches.

Kenmore 15516 It only goes reverse both ways.


Does it have an automatic buttonhole? If so, is the pattern selector set on part of the buttonhole? set it to straight stitch or Zig Zag

The fabric doesn't move forward.


Hi,

What is the length set at?

Are the feed dogs visible at the needle plate?

What does the design look like in the pattern box?

Have you tried it on the straight stitch to see if is effected also?
