Question about Sewing Machines
Sews in reverse
1. Take the top off your machine.
2. Move the stitch length back and forth and watch the arm inside .
3. By doing this you will see where the arm is connected. The arm is probably loose or stuck by old grease. Look on the arm for loose screws. Tighten them.
4. If you see old grease that is hard and dirty you will need to clean it off. Use carburetor cleaner. Use old rags and a qtip and toothbrush. (Don't brush with it anymore)
5. Recheck to see if the mechanisms inside move by the arm.
6. Put some material on the sewing machine w/o a needle or bobbin inside. Turn the hand wheel and watch the material. You will have to move the arm to different areas to see differences in the material movement.
7. Once the material is moving you can put new oil on all moving parts that touch each other. (steel against steel)
Remember loose screws, old grease are probably the problems.
