Sewing machine stuck on reverse only

Everything moves just fine.
I was making curtains, sewing straight and did the reverse and it stayed on reverse. My husband took it apart and did not find any problems.

Necchi 535FA is stuck in reverse, no matter what adjustments I change. I oiled and cleaned it and properly threaded it. Everything seems to work and move fine, except the reverse button was stuck.


A part of the Reverse Button mechanism is probably frozen.

This may work:
Direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism and let the metal parts get pretty hot. (Don't burn your fingers!) Then try the reverse button to see if it has loosened. Repeat and hopefully it will begin working. If you figure out where the reverse button mechanism is located, you can try lubricating the metal joints--ONLY 1-2 drops of GOOD quality sewing machine oil (do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or OLD sewing machine oil). Then try the hairdryer again. Do NOT oil plastic parts or belts unless directed to in the owner's manual instructions.

To keep your machine sewing well, be sure to clean and oil on a regular basis--about every 8-12 hours of continuous sewing, every time you empty a bobbin, or if it's not in frequent use, every six months. Oil drying out is a frequent cause of machine moving parts freezing.

When making buttonholes, the machine will not zig zag in reverse when doing the right side of the buttonhole.


1. Remove the top.
2. Clean the inside with carburetor cleaner and lubricate with sewing machine oil.
3. While After this move the stitch length back and forth from a long arm to the reverse mode. Rotate the hand wheel several times to lubricate all moving parts.
4. Place some rags under the pressure foot and watch if the rags will back up.
5. Remove the bottom of the machine.
6. Clean the bottom moving parts and lubricate.
7. Rotate the hand wheel and watch the feed dogs to see if everything is moving.
8. It is possible to notice a screw attached to the stitch length adjuster that will have to be tightened. This may require you to move other parts that are attached and apply pressure while doing this.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

Needle stuck in the material while sewing a straight stitch.


See if you can release the bobbin from the case.

Singer 7442 stuck/jammed


you may have some lint not seen and use some canned air and try that you may need a new needle it could be bent. or even broken and a piece is still in the little tight crease in the bobbin holder.try all that first and then check your tension did it get moved by the fabric? when you wrer making the curtains?

Look at the feed dogs under the foot see if they are raised high enough to pull the material through.

Most likely is that the reverse mechanism is jammed with old oil and lint to form a glue.......especially if the machine has not been used recently or regularly.
If you can remove the base plates from underneath easily, then try to operate the reverse lever, you will see a metal lever trying to move a collar around the shaft......apply a small amount of WD40 or similar to both sides of the join then press the reverse rapidly for a while, move it by hand if necessary back and forth..........with regular use this is rarely an issue, it is most common when the machine is idle for long periods.
If you cannot remove base plates easily, ie if the case is split down the middle in 2 sections, take it to a Janome Dealer who has the repair manual as trying to split the case yourself without the manual is very difficult and you will probably break the retaining clips.
