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.) :)

Where is reverse button


Depends on the make & model of your machine. Would be best to consult the owner's manual. Mechanical and computerized machines also vary. Mechanical machines usually have a stitch length lever that, when pushed all the way up, will reverse stitch, or there is a button usually marked with an R or an arrow. Computerized machines usually have a button marked by a U-shaped arrow.

Of course, if you have a vintage sewing machine, it may not even have a reverse stitch. Instead, to sew in reverse, one would have to sink the needle into the fabric, raise the presser foot and swivel the fabric 180 degrees, drop the presser foot and stitch.

To find a copy of the owner's manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

since the sewing machine was given to you, it might be a good idea to have the sewing machine serviced to see if there is a problem with the reverse and stitch setting.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

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!

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.

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.
