Reverse stitching problem

I have an elderly friend with this machine. He can not figure out how the reverse work or if it does. He does have a mauel that he ordered but says it does not show the button that he thinks is the reverse. Do you know which button is the proper button? Also if it does not work properly is there a a simply fix I could do? Thank you for your time and expeirence.
Sincerely V Garner

There are 4 buttons just above and to the right of the needle on the face of the machine. The second button from the bottom is the reverse.

My Janome JL250 is stuck in reverse


Probably the reverse mechanism has stuck. Only suggestion may be working the lever manually to see if it frees up. Other than that, it would need service or replacement.

Just bought this used machine, it worked fine in tryouts but after transit the stitch width switch is not working. It automatically goes to the reverse position and will not dial down to any widths.


the forward /reverse control sets the stitch length(width) the closer to neutral the smaller the stitch
full forward or full reverse is max stitch length

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"

How to fix sewing reverse


try to pull the fabric as you hold the reverse lever.....pull away from front towards yourself. the dogs pull the fabric in the opposite direction. make sure your stitch length is narrow or "1" ...reverse only works with a straight stitch foot not a zigzag. Sometimes a machine needs a little help getting the reverse mechanism going......

Try turning the flywheel and operate the reverse lever at the same time. Some machines need to be at a certain point in the stitch cycle for the reverse lever to be used.

Shorten your stitch in reverse the machine can't do a stitch that long in reverse. Also google your make and model machine and the word Manual so you can properly learn to use the machine safely.

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

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.
