The reverse mechanism probably is sticking due to old grease. Your local dealer with have to clean out the old grease and free it up.

hope that helps,

My heavy duty Singer sewing machine is stuck in reverse. How do I fix it?


If this machine has a mechanical lever or button it may be internal parts have broken and need to be replaced. this is a common issue with lots of machines. The machine breaks when in reverse and will only sew in reverse. Please have a professional look at the machine and make a repair if necessary.

Is there a button on this 807 machine bernina which you can press for it to stitch backwards like on the singer machine 507 as its saves time on tiring ends up at the beginning and end of sewing thank...


The stitch length control is moved upwards, beyond the 'zero' position to make it sew backwards. To demonstrate, with the machine off, adjust the stitch length to '2' using the knob on the stitch-length lever. Now push the lever upwards until it stops - it will go past the zero position and this is now in reverse mode.

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

Reverse stitch


On the 8280, the lever for reversing the stitching appears to be on the front of the machine, above and slightly to the right of the needle.
