Question about White Sewing 1409 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Ok, you have a couple things going on here. You need to remove the top cover of your machine. Let's address the reverse first, look down into the top of your machine and press the reverse button. There should be some action there. If not your button is dirty and needs to be cleaned. If there is movement check for a small set screw attached to the lever on the knob. This may need adjustment.
On the handwheel, you need to take the smaller wheel off and pull the handwheel as far off the machine as you can without damaging the belt.
Clean the area where the handwheel goes over the shaft with canned air - make sure you clean all the way around.
That should do it.
