Will only Sew in reverse.

My Wife just inherited her Grandmothers Kenmore 100 stitch, and it did not come with a manual? The problem is that it will only sew in reverse? What should she be checking to correct the problem?

Could be several things -- motor hooked up backwards, reverse is stuck, etc. Is there a Reverse on the machine? If so, what happens when you activate the reverse. If it then sews forward I would say someone hooked the motor backwards. If there is no change, it would be a problem with the feeding motor or the circuit board. Suggest taking to a reputable service center for analysis. Good luck.

Needle keeps unthreading???? HELP!!!


Ok... so now that you have the length of thread the proper length to start a seam. Are you holding the threads when you start to sew?

Is your needle the proper size for your thread and project?...
Also check the throat plate (where the needle goes through to the bobbin) is it in good shape... or does it show stab marks from the needle? If it shows stab marks.... it could be damaged an may need replaced.

I advise putting your project away and only using scrap pieces to sew on until you get this issue resolved.

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.

My Sears Kenmore 1751 siz-zag sewing maching will only sew in reverse. A few minute ago it was sewing fine in both directions. The button I push to make it sew in reverse doesn't feel like it is...


these older cam machines have grease in then that can jam up the cams if you can get the covers off soak the machine with wd-40 and play with the reverse and stitch length if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then put sewing machine oil in the machine

My sewing machine is sewing in reverse Kenmore 385-1960180


Hopefully this is only a mechanical problem that can be fixed with oil. If not it is either a stepper motor or circuit board. If you are not comfortable with removing covers and oiling then it needs to go to the shop.
Good luck!

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.
