SOURCE: Janome Excel 5124 reverse lever

If you pull the bottom off the machine (half a dozen screws) there is a cam on the main drive shaft. The cam is probably jammed in the reverse position due to lack of lubrication on the shaft. You can move the cam back manually and it will operate in forward direction. It appears that the shaft needs lubrication.

The reverse button does not work


The button is a relay switch and is an electronic component

Quite easy to replace, but you need to get parts from Janome Authorised Dealer

Dogs motor?


Does it have a stitch length dial which ranges from 4 down to 0 and then into negative numbers? If so, the negative numbers will be reverse stitches. Some machines have this functionality and its very happy for doing mending or stitching in awkward places to sew backwards without having to hold the reverse button.

However, if yours is only sewing backwards when stitch length is set to 2, 3 or 4, then its probably a drive problem internally. Don't think your machine has a seperate motor for the feed dogs, probably a gear driven shaft in the free arm.

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!

Bobbin jamming immediately on my my 5124. Can't


Recheck the bobbin to be sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Re-thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the needle in inserted with the flat side to the back of the sewing machine.

Backstitch isn't working


First, ensure that you are pressing the reverse lever all the way in and holding it. A light touch won't work on this model.

There is a spring loaded cam in the feed system which can get gummed up when the lubricant gets old. It needs to be carefully taken apart, solvent cleaned, re-lubricated and reassembled. A knowledgeable repair person needs to perform this operation.
