Does my Brother SQ9185 sew backwards other than the push button backstitch?


Use the reverse button. That's what it is for. Sew forward and then push the button and sew in reverse.

If you have a darning foot, you can use it (drop the feed dogs) and then you manually move the fabric around while stitching.

Operates only in reverse-How to fix


Isn't there a button that you would push to make machine go in reverse? You may have used this button and it got stuck in the reverse position or the button may be broken or disconnected. Pull the button outwards, put some penetrating oil on button to loosen up and see what happens or check for broken piece or check for bad contact. I hope this will fix your problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Buttonhole


Set the machine to button hole and use the "C" foot. The machine sews backwards first. When it reaches the correct length push the reverse button. Then when it has sewn the left side even with the right side push reverse again.

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.

V/74088/620


I am having the same problem. Initially it did sew forward, but now only sews in reverse. The large grey lever on the right front of the machine should make it sew in reverse only as long as it is held down, but mine sews in reverse only. Hmmmm....think there are many people with this problem.

Husqvarna Viking Sweden Model 6030


On all sewing machines there is a button or lever which makes the machine go backward. The button could be stuck, if so put a drop of oil on it and try to release it. If there is a lever that has been raised which puts the machine in reverse, simply lower it to the lowest position. This should solve the problem.

Reverse only?


Hi,

I too just aquired a husqvarna viking 6030 that was stuck in straight-stitch reverse. No forward, no zig zag, no button hole, no cam stitches. I also suspected a broken spring, since the reverse button was slack and had no resistance. But after inspecting every moving part, I realized it was just stuck from many years of non-use. I finally got it free today! I had used some Tri-Flow oil and applied it sparingly to all moving points (but not belts or motor). I exercised all the buttons and like another poster (either here or elsewhere, not sure) I used my hair dryer to apply heat to the inside of the machine through the cam slot. After you remove the white cover on back of machine that holds the two spool spindles, you will see a formed aluminum part just behind the reverse dial that has a rounded-pointed protrusion which sort of looks like a fat flat head screwdriver. It is supposed to travel in an up-down motion when reverse button is pressed. I used a flat head driver to coax its movement, and once it began moving, I continued with heat and drops of oil. Good luck.
