Has your machine been sitting for awhile? If so, taking a hair dryer to your machine after you remove the cover, sometimes frees it up. I would oil everything according to your manual. I hope that it works for you.

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 the reverse button on elna 2005?


The reverse button is next to where you thread the cotton. as the thread goes down to the needle, there is a small cream tab approx 1.5cm long. This is pushed down when you want to reverse. It will only go down about 1.5cm then release.

I have old montgomery ward sewing machine model UHT J1264 and it is stuck in reverse. I don't know where the switch is. Help?


The reverse button is on the frount in the center of the knob to the right of the machine, if it only goes in reverse the button is stuck pressed in. I have the same machine but am needing parts to mine, if you ever want to sell it please contact me
Hope this helps

Janome machine going backwards instead of forwards. Goes forward if I hold the reverse button down.


sounds like a screw may have become missing to keep the reverse knob in its proper position so it is backwards inside the machine

Model 385.15718500..machine only goes in reverse


Sounds like the reverse mechanism has jammed...either with lint or lack of use and oil/lint has frozen the mechanism.
Unplug the machine and remove the base. Clean all the lint with small brush and vacuum.
Try the reverse lever to see where the connecting rods are and identify the collar around the bottom shaft....try to move manually, use a little lubricant where the collar moves on the shaft.
In extreme cases it may take several applications over several days to rectify this, but as this is only 3 years old, should respond quickly

Kenmore 15516 It only goes reverse both ways.


Does it have an automatic buttonhole? If so, is the pattern selector set on part of the buttonhole? set it to straight stitch or Zig Zag

Reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!


The mechanism requires lubrication from the back, would be best to have machine serviced.

Necchi Stitch Length


When you press the level the machine goes in reverse. When you turn the dail to O it goes in reverse. The dail is somehow out of alinement and that is what I am searching for the adjustment that would bring the machine to O and the adjustment that would lengthen the stitch forward. When I push teh level for reverse it does go in reverse. I guess the question would be if you would like to lengthen the stitch further than the dail currectly allows how do you do that. THanks!
