My model 210 is stuck in reverse. Can you help?

My model 210 is stuck in reverse. Can you help? I just purchased this machine at an estate sale. The instruction book is included. I needed to stitch in reverse, and when I turned to the stitch length dial to permanent reverse position, it stuck and none of my sewing buddies can get it out of reverse. Can you help?

The only thing you can do to possible free the mechanism is to turn the lower dial back and forth a bit, from the position where it is in permanent reverse to the numbered area on the dial. Make sure the selector is not on the buttonhole position. That machine doesn't really have a history of that issue but anything is possible, especially if it has sat for awhile and not been used. If moisture was present where it was stored, it's possible the feed linkage is slightly rusted and simply stuck.

    Take off two screws on the right side cover, open the plastic cover on the side, then you will be able to push out the reverse switch easily from inside with a finger.

Looking for free Service repair manual for Husqvarna Sewing Machine 3600


Service and repair manuals are difficult to find as the manufacturers are reluctant to make that information available to the public. However, sometimes you will find them for sale on sites like eBay. If you also search the internet for parts diagrams you may find some information to help figure out where things belong.

There is also this site (I have no experience with it):

I have a singer 603e that I just purchased from an estate sale. I got home and tried to use it, but the take up lever is stuck. How do I fix this?


try some wd 40, spray it on the area of the take up lever & let it set for at least 10 minutes then with the hand wheel on the right hand side slowly move the hand wheel toward you & if it still doesn't move re spray again & wait again then try the hand wheel again to move toward you eventually it should start to break loose if it's just stuck.
since you pruchased it at a estate sale, there not much telling when the machine was serviced last
if the spraying doesn't work, consider having it serviced

Lever is stuck in reverse


If the stitch length bar, which is located on the right side of the machine, is in the up position move it down to where the numbers are. Those numbers are referring to how many stitches the machine will sew in an inch. Therefore, if you put it on 10, your machine will sew 10 stitches per inch. It being up will cause your machine to go in reverse.
