Hi
Questions.
Does the machine only feed in reverse?
Will the machine feed as normal(forward).

If the machine will only work in reverse, then it is highly likely it is stuck in reverse and needs a good service to free it off.

It is very difficult trying to diagnose the problem without looking at the machine. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort the problem in no time at all.

Kenmore 385.1500 sews only in reverse. it is stuck in reverse sewing.


The reverse mechanism lube us going bad. It is accessed from under the machine under the free arm. Usually indicates that the machine is due for a service and oiling. It shouldn't be a problem to get it done at a good sewing machine dealer/store.

Sewing Machine sews in reverse


Frequently this is a lubrication issue. The lubricant may have evaporated and allows it to stick. Or it could be the linkage is broken.

I have an old sewing machine in my attic, i just recently put it to use. but i cant seem to find the reverse stitch button. im only 14, it was my moms sewing machine. but shes no longer with us, so im...


I've got a Kenmore sewing machine and the back stitch is a button/lever on the front of the machine. It has to be held down when you want to back stitch, because when you let it go it stitches forward again. Hopefully that helps, I'm not sure what yours looks like. ( I couldn't find pictures of your model online anywhere.) :)

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.
