Question about Toyota SE-06 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have an old Toyota electric sewing machine which has always been very reliable. The place I bought it from has closed down some years ago. It has suddenly stopped feeding the material, either backwards or forwards. We took the top off and oiled various bits with little effect. Changing the stitch side does not make any difference.
Can you help please?
SOURCE: backward stitching
Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.
Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.
Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

Can you get inside to get at the lever? Spray the reverse mechanism with sewing machine oil or WD40. Be sure to clean the mechanism first.
If the feed direction is forward after you oil it, great! If not, it's off to the repair shop.
I hope this works for you. Thanks for visiting fixya.com
I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks.
