My Janome JL250 is stuck in reverse


Probably the reverse mechanism has stuck. Only suggestion may be working the lever manually to see if it frees up. Other than that, it would need service or replacement.

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

What is my Janome 415 feeding the fabric backwards? How do I fix it?


You have the reverser in the back stitch setting. When you do an over lock stitch you change the feed direction. It should be a lever. Some have a screw lock to keep it in place.

Stitch problems


You can adjust the pressure foot(not footpedal)which puts the prsure on the foot by the needle. Also try altering the stitch length. If the stitches are skipping on silky fabric or knitted fabrics try using tissue and sewing onto that directly then tearing it off afterwards.

The Reverse stitch button


The feed mechanism needs to be oiled. Take off the bottom cover and look for any place where two parts move against each other. Some binds can be very difficult to remove. Try spraying everything with a light weight oil (I like Tri-Flow) and let them soak over night. Then manually try to move the feed dogs with your hand. Hopefully it will break loose.
Good luck!
