I have a Husqvarna Viking Quilt Designer II that the reverse button does not reverse. It continues to sew forward when I hold and press the reverse button. Thank you for your help.

If, the machine has been sitting, take a hair dryer and heat where the reverse lever is. Try this, it worked on mine. If, that does not work, try cleaning and oiling your machine according to your manual.

Reverse not working. Pressing the reverse button isn't engaging the machine in reverse - the light has gradually stopped coming on, it appears to be disconnected.

take your machine to a Viking dealer and have them check it out. it probably has a worn 8 button keypad. the reverse button is usually the first to wear out. this not a DIY project.

Janome New Home mx3123 reverse button not working

1/28/13 - I have Janome Harmony 2049 that was initially sewing forward with no reverse and then after about 12 inches of sewing would ONLY sew in reverse. After spending an hour getting the plastic housing off...I was able to locate the shaft that made the reverse. It needed lubrication and after working it in and unjamming the part from the down position, the forward and reverse now work!
Huh, right? Hope it continues to work well. It is a smooth running machine, otherwise. Good luck!

Machine sews only in reverse

Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.
