Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine

I have a Kenmore sewing machine that started running backwards. When I hit the reverse, nothing different happens. The stitches looks fine, but it is feeding the material to the front of the machine.

Sounds like a broken or loose spring behind your lever.

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!

Singer Model 6212c only sews in reverse... Just brought this machine home today. Ha Ha, it only sews in reverse mode.


there's probably nothing wrong with your machine.

check and see if your stitch length setting is set to Stretch instead of somewhere between 2 and 3.

If it's in the stretch zone (below 0), it can sometimes sew backwards unexpectedly depending on what stitch you have selected.

make sure you have selected a straight stitch, and then select the highest stitch width and a stitch length of somewhere between 2 and 3.

it will most likely work fine.

Will only Sew in reverse.


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.

Brother Machine!


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.

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.

This happened to me too! Make sure your buttonholer isn't pulled down and locked in to where it's making the machine sew backward. That's what happened to me.
