Have you followed your user guide instructions re making needed setting adjustments back to a sewing mode? Have you checked the guide for instructions on 'resetting to factory default' so that you can reprogramme?
If the above doesn't help, have you tried a 'shock reboot'? Start by turning on machine on and let it sit for a few minutes then without turning it off, pull the power plug from the electrical outlet. Wait five minutes then reconnect and turn on your machine - it should have defaulted back to factory settings. You'll lose your saved stitches but your machine should function properly again.
If that doesn't get your machine sewing forward, something the wee man did snapped something inside the machine (usually a gear and the things are easier to 'snap' than people realise) and it's time for a trip to the repair tech.
Be sure the tech has experience working on the Memory Craft series - great machines but the 4000 is a 'retired' computerised machine and unless you choose a 'factory trained - authorised' may not be qualified to work on vintage (sewer speak for 'retired' models) computerised machines.....

I have a White model 3900N. Why does it only sew in reverse?


Hello Jan, I have run into this problem many times. The reason your machine only sews in reverse is caused by old sticky oil at the feed dog pivots. Oil your machine with only high quality sewing machine oil. Pay close attention to the two pivots under your machine where the feed dogs attach to cross journals. Oil them several times and work the reversing lever until the feed dogs move freely and easily. It will sew in reverse if you oil the pivots. Good luck.

What my sew d Lite Works on reverse


Your reverse mechanism may be frozen. You need to place a couple drops of sewing machine oil into the mechanism. Remove the bobbin case, thread, and needle then permit the machine to run freely. While the machine is running, move the reverse mechanism up and down until it is free.

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.

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.
