Sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine

My machine will not sew in the forward position...It keeps sewing backwards like it is in reverse.....Need help ASAP


All sewing machines have a gear lever. This is so you can sew a seam forwards and backwards. Consult your manual.

My reverse button doesn't work, on Viking 5710 so it only goes backwards


First open it up by unscrewing a cover and check it for dust dirt and thread.

If it still is stuck in reverse after cleaning, take it to an authorized repair shop

check to see if your machine is in buttonhole mode, one of the legs of the buttonholer will always be a reverse zigzag.

My friend bought jenome sewing machine. It is working very well except that it only sew in reverse (backwards). Could it be that the reverse button got stuck or is there a setting that needs to be done?


button in centre of stitch length control is probably gummed up and stuck lubricate with penetrating oil and wind stich control backwards and forwards to see if centre knob starts to move. Remove arm top cover and do same to mechanism visible from above

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!

I have a Janome 8080 that is out of warranty by a month and days. I went to use it and my handwheel will not let me move it backwards. It is not giving me a code that anything is wrong. I can't reach...


You should always move the handwheel forward. On some machines moving it backwards can throw off the timing. Try reverse and doing a couple of stitches to test.

Janome Harmony 2049


Darning would normally be done with the triple stretch stich, the one that is a zig-zag broken up into three stitches right and then three stitches left. See-through Zig-Zag foot. Zig-Zag set at it's widest. Feed set to about 1/16-1/8 inch (1.5-3mm) and darn by sewing forward a bit, adjust fabric, and then backward by pressing and holding the reverse button. Continue back and forth until you've created a darned box. For extra strength, turn fabric 90 degrees and repeat over same area.

Bernina 930


Have you ever done a thorough internal oil of your machine? These mechanical machines rely on oil to keep moving but, over time, that oil dries and starts to stick things together. I do a deep internal oil about annually and oil the hook at least every 8 hours of sewing.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

There's an oil diagram in this answer:

How do you open bernina 930 sewing machine especially removing the side...
