I would also be helpful if you were to indicate make and model............however, let us soldier on.... Unplug machine....Remove the base and while pressing the reverse lever identify where the connecting rod attaches....add a little lubricant at the point of seizing. This may need several applications...possibly over several days in extreme cases. Causes are usually lint and oil forming a "glue" or mild corrosion. Jiggle the stiff joint or collar manually to ease it more free and keep this routine going until it resolves..... If it is still sluggish, rubbing alcohol directed on the joint (sparingly) while jiggling may assist the disolving of any "clag" Sometimes it is never fully resolved and even if it seems to come good, if you do not keep it moving regularly into the future it will continue to be a problem.

I just replaced the motor on this machine and when started it only sews in reverse. To get it to sew forward, I have to push reverse lever down.


The motor may have to be reversed. The reverse action of a sewing machine is the feed below the needle is reversed not the machine.

Where is reverse button


Depends on the make & model of your machine. Would be best to consult the owner's manual. Mechanical and computerized machines also vary. Mechanical machines usually have a stitch length lever that, when pushed all the way up, will reverse stitch, or there is a button usually marked with an R or an arrow. Computerized machines usually have a button marked by a U-shaped arrow.

Of course, if you have a vintage sewing machine, it may not even have a reverse stitch. Instead, to sew in reverse, one would have to sink the needle into the fabric, raise the presser foot and swivel the fabric 180 degrees, drop the presser foot and stitch.

To find a copy of the owner's manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

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.

Bobbin bunching in reverse, I have adjusted all tensions and ONLY in the reverse I get a "rats nest" under my fleece fabric. Stitches beautifully but once you ask for a reverse, it is a mess


For all machines that I have experience the reverse button or control is only use to lock the finishing end of your sewing & if reverse all the way would not work right.

I have a husgvarna Designer1and the reverse botton is not lighting up and is not going in reverse


The reverse button doesn't light up until the feed dogs reverse their rotation (feed rearward). The problem probably relates to the drive thats shifts the linkage to reverse the feed dogs (although it could be the linkage itself is out of wack). In any case, I doubt that you are doing anything wrong or that this is something you can fix yourself.

Husqvarna Classic 100 sew machine , pressed reverse button, now it sew reverse only!!! Please help! i pressed, i hold, turned off and on, nothing....... any ideas?


There is a permanent reverse position on the dial button behind the reverse where the stitch length is located. Check to see if you have positioned the knob to permanent reverse. The setting looks like a "U" turn arrow.

Machine won't go into reverse


What model machine are we talking about here? If it is a Designer 1, Reverse doesn't show up on the screen. You need to hit the Reverse button twice in succession, the button stays lit up, and the machine should sew in reverse until you hit Reverse again or change stitch.

When a reverse arrow shows on the screen, it is usually when a programmable stitch is selected and you need to hit Reverse to complete the programmed task.

Get back with more detail on your machine and the problem, and maybe I can offer some more specific help.

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.
