IF YOUR FEED DOGS ARE COMING ABOVE THE PLATE IT SHOULD MOVE FORWARD. THE FIRST REASON IT WON'T IS THE "FREE SEW" IS TURNED ON. A SWITCH YOU NEED TO TURN OFF SO THAT YOUR FEED DOGS WILL OPERATE. ANOTHER REASON IS THE LENGTH OF STITCH NEEDS TO BE INCREASED ABOVE ZERO.

My machine will not sew in the forward position...It keeps sewing backwards like it is in reverse.....Need help ASAP


All sewing machines have a gear lever. This is so you can sew a seam forwards and backwards. Consult your manual.

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?

it would be a good idea to have the machine serviced at a sewing machine shop, it's possible that a part has broken or may have a timing problem..

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!

Janome machine going backwards instead of forwards. Goes forward if I hold the reverse button down.


sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine

The machine stopped feeding forward.


Theresa, the key words here were you don't use your machine often. You don't say what type of machine you have but I beleive it needs some oil and not just cleaning.. Remove whatever covers you can around the feeddogs top and below and back. (and any where else) and put some sewing machine oil on any metal parts that move togeather. Plastic parts take grease. Keep exersizing the machine and oiling until the feeddogs move again.
Or maybe your feedogs went in the darning position and have dropped below the needleplate. If your machine has this feature push the button again (or slide the lever) and they will come up.
Hope this helped.
