Try dropping your feed dogs and then bringing them up again. This unblocked one of my machines once.

Try this:

Singer Sewing Machine Company Serial Numbers

Unless it is a rare machine, the value is probably not much as Singer made thousands of machines and, since they are such good machines, there are still many left in use.

My Brother Project Runway PC 420 will not automatically form any stitch that requires switching to reverse. It will only reverse when I press the reverse button. All help will be appreciated!

Brother is one company that I've had excellent experience with. Their service has always been top notch and they stand behind their products. I would ask them if they can help. Depending on the age of the machine, may have to take it for servicing, but try them first.

They are great on the phone and answer email promptly. I've never had anything but great experiences with them, for anything I own made by Brother.

Site here, can find where to go for any country.

Janome memory craft 9000

That is a very interesting question and I would guess only a technician would be able to take a guess. It would also depend of course on its age and whether it was used heavily or was just sitting waiting for someone to love it. Janome is a great company. My machine is 20 years old, used heavily and works like a dream...I do however have it serviced once in awhile.

Machine binding

Have you been lubricating the machine in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations? Sometimes a drop of "3 in 1" (or equal) light machine oil in the right place can work miracles.

Good morning, My machine is about 30 years old. The reverse button is sticking. So I opened the back up and there is a little spring which attaches to something (?) but has come off. (I think) Any ideas or...

Hi, Happy New Year
Is your dealer close to your home? Sometimes the salespeople are able to help you for no charge. I know the girls who work at my dealer (JoAnn's fabrics, Viking center) are super good about helping anybody who has a Husqvarna machine. I would be afraid to have someone else monkey with it for fear they would mess it up more. Plus, you have a great machine and it probably is due for a little love and attention, like a tuneup anyway, if they have to send it out for service. It is definately worth fixing. I do not have a schematic of your machine so unless someone has one, or are familiar with the model they really cannot advise you. Good Luck.

I'm trying to date an old Cromwell DeLuxe Sewing Machine. Belonged to my husband's grandmother. Serial number: C57-35077. Can you help? I really need to place the age of this machine so that I can locate a...

Hi! I just love old sewing machines and am so glad to hear that you want to use it! (You don't really need to know the age to get started, BTW.) I did a quick search for Cromwell DeLuxe and came up negative--but all that means is that your machine was probably a badged machine. In other words, it was manufactured for a distributor (perhaps a local store) and the distributor put their name on it instead of the manufacturer's name.

Here are two great links to get you started:

Many badged machines (and others) were built by Japanese companies (see if you machine has a JA- or JC- number on it) and this site has just loads of great information on these machines, plus lots of photographs.

This group is dedicated to "keeping classic, mechanical sewing machines in use and dollars in your pocket" --which sounds like a great deal to me! They also have loads of information, including some generic manuals, photos, and great how-to tips.

Email me and let me know how it goes!

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 ( for $17.00.

I love my Necchi--you can read about her at if you like.

Happy Sewing!
