    Hi,



    Sorry for the inconvinience. Since the problem is internal it was a bit confusing and difficult to answer it without seein the machine in question.

    However I am giving you a general view related about the problem in your machine.

    Hope it would serve the purpose.

    The reverse mechanism is stuck. The machine has to be completely disassembled to get to the problem. It is usually not a big deal to get it "unstuck" but taking it apart can be a pain. A good machine tech. can do it easily or you can give it a shot. Just look what the reverse lever actuates and see how it is stuck in the reverse position. It is usually the stitch length/reverse block.

    Let us know if you want something more else accept the suggestion.

    Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My machine sews backwards but when I press the reverse, it goes frontwards


The feed Dogs are being driven incorrectly. Inspect the mechanism on top and below to see if you can see anything that is off line or stuck. Try a fine lubricating oil on joints and cams. If nothing frees off or isn't obviously wrong. Then I would consider getting it serviced.

My "new" elna type 722010 only sews in reverse.


What is the stitch length lever set to (4 in the diagram below)? these models have a lever that slides from positive to negative (ie) reverse, so you need to set it to the positive area, between 2 and 3 above zero. If you move it below zero then it sews that stitch length backwards.

If this machine is new to you, you might want to join the yahoo group called "Elna Heirlooms" there is lots of helpful members who share info on these old machines there.

My sewing machine is sewing backwards how to put it properly?


You've most likely accidentally hit the "reverse" stitch button, which sews in the opposite direction. The button will be marked by one of these symbols: grtartst_1.jpg

This symbol indicates the reverse stitch button. Just press this button and your machine should start sewing in the right direction!

My husqvarna classica 90 sews backward instead of forward. Can you help with an answer why?


Make sure the stitch selector is not set on buttonhole. If the machine has set up for a long time not being used it may be that the stitch length is stuck in reverse.

Only sews backwards


You probably have it in the buttonhole stitch.

Backward stitching


Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.
