Reverse Lever broke off

The reverse lever is terrible. The part that holds onto the metal piece is completely worn down and I've only sewn on it a few times.

First of all, make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward position. If it is and you are still having a problem, take the top of the machine off and blow hot air from a hair dryer down towards the reverse mechanism. That will unfreeze it.

How to fix sewing reverse


try to pull the fabric as you hold the reverse lever.....pull away from front towards yourself. the dogs pull the fabric in the opposite direction. make sure your stitch length is narrow or "1" ...reverse only works with a straight stitch foot not a zigzag. Sometimes a machine needs a little help getting the reverse mechanism going......

Brother AE2500 reverse sewing lever is too stiff to move , how does this work please, bacause in the CD provided with this sewing machine , this lever (plastic) for doing reverse is being moved down t


Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

Thread Take Up Lever Issue


I've had that problem before, you can use a piece of tape to cover the take up lever or use a pair of wire pliers to close the take up lever just a little bit, so the thread will not come out.

My Singer 2950 buttonhol-er stitches only one side of the buttonhole. It does not reverse and finish the buttonhole. What to do??


Have you pulled down the buttonhole trigger lever at the back of the sewing area? most modern machines have one of these - when you use it with the button hole foot, you'll see the foot has a little piece that sticks out and triggers the lever to begin stitching the reverse bead and bar tack of the buttonhole.

I have my Mother's Brother XL3750, no book or accessories. It will sew in reverse only. I don't even know where the reverse button is. The only thing that I have tried is the big lever front...


you can download a manual for your machine from the Brother website,

Reverse is the big lever in front but it should be sprung so you need to hold it down to reverse; if your machine is only sewing backwards, this lever might be stuck or locked into position. Check out page 25 and 26 in the manual for specific info.

Looking for the reverse button on a necchi bu nova


There is no reverse button, it is a lever.The stitch length lever also reverses the feed dogs - when down, it runs forward - at zero, it does not feed at all and when moved up, it reverses the machine. Set your stitch length by loosening the thumbscrew on the vertically moving lever and sliding the plate into position while moving the lever up to the desired mark. Tighten the screw and move the lever down to sew - to reverse just move the lever up until it hits the stop to sew the same stitch length in reverse.

My reverse stitch control is worn and does not work. How can I get a replacement?


After seeing this, I went onto sewingpartsonline.com and was able to order a new reverse lever for $7.95. Considerably cheaper than taking it in for repair.

Reverse Lever isn't working...


Most likely the "dogs" inside the lever are broken off. Oil/grease on the metal rod cause chemical attack to the plastic lever and the "dogs" break. Singer should know to degrease this rod before assembly.
