SOURCE: sewing backwards

The reverse button works by hitting it twice in succession to make it stay on (it lights up), and you turn it off my hitting it once again. If you just want to reverse for a little bit, you hold it down while you sew, then let go. Is the button lit all the time?
Having said that, it sounds like Nannayoyo needs to take her machine to a service centre - the electronics behind the button panel might need replacing. Is it possible the button is stuck in? Maybe phone a Husqvarna service person - not a sales person - and ask for advice.
Everyone - are your machines new? If yes, you need to go back to the sales centre straight away and get it fixed or replaced while you wait. If these are problems that have just appeared when your machine used to work perfectly, probably the best solution is to take it for a service. It might just be a speck of dust has settled on the electronics behind the panel and is causing unpredictable behaviour.

Yes, this is a problem that a trained Viking repairman needs to resolve. It might need to have the zero feed position adjusted.

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.

My machine will not sew in the forward position...It keeps sewing backwards like it is in reverse.....Need help ASAP


All sewing machines have a gear lever. This is so you can sew a seam forwards and backwards. Consult your manual.

Machine will only sew in reverse


You wrote,
"Machine will only sew in reverse - Sewing Machines" A: I'm just a tinkerer, hobbyist, who did run across this same problem before. I can give a general non-model specific remedy based on my limited experience with mechanical sewing machines that get locked into sewing backwards, that is "they only want to sew in Reverse":

1. Verify what is the normal direction of the fly wheel in forward sewing for your machine. Most sewing machines, including Singers, always sew with the top of the flywheel moving toward the operator, regardless if sewing forward or backwards; but older friction-wheel White Rotary (RF) sewing machines, have the flywheel running in the opposite direction (top of Hand-Wheel turning away from the operator when sewing.

2. If it has Reverse Lever/Switch; check that it is in the correct position; if still only sews in reverse, change positions of the Direction Control lever (or Button, etc.), and see if it changes direction to correct the problem.

3. If this does not help, then jiggle the Reverse Lever and follow the linkage inside the machine and see if there is anything broken, loose or out of adjustment. Some machines have reverse control linkage elbows in the top part of machine, and by poor design are prone to accidentally pop backwards, causing sewing in the opposite direction of the position of the Reverse Lever/Button (Backwards when you want to sew Forward). On occasion, a Kenmore 158.1787180 got locked into the backwards sewing mode (the dog-gone' est thing), but by following and analyzing the linkage, I found where it was going wrong, and popped the indecisive linkage elbow back the way it was supposed to be and fixed it. [ I had more detailed notes, on this fix, but when I read them, without the machine in front of me, made no sense to me today so I can't share that till I revisit the conundrum again.]

4. If all else fails, you may be able to hold or clamp the Reverse Lever/Button in the Reverse position, so it sews Forward (I've done this before too (as a short-term fix) until I figured out how to adjust it back the way it was supposed to be.

5. If this post helped you, don't be afraid to indicate so, so Fixya will know. If it was useless, "ouch", but I'd like to know that too, so I'll be more selective on what I really know more about. I try to help, though this is probably a trade secret that anyone who knows is discrete about who they share the information with.

The needle wont move


You need to look into the bobbin case for rags and thread. Clean this carefully. Check for rags and thread that is stuck in the feed dogs. You may need to move the hand wheel backwards and forwards to get it going again. Once you get it moving check those areas you previously checked again. Before you put the bobbin case back in place a drop of oil on the race track.

My machines stitches backward instead of forward.


There is a forward and reverse switch you are missing. If you have a pedal it is a matter of pushing the pedal the right direction.

Singer 4166 suddenly started sewing only in reverse even when forward mode checked


open the top of the sewing machine. Then press the button or lever that changes the forward reverse mode. You may find that something got stuck there where it should effect the machine part. May a drop of oil on that spot can help?

I have a Simplicity SE3 machine and I can not fine bobbins for this machine. Where can they be purchased?


The Simplicity SE3 bobbins are used for several other machines. The metal version of the bobbin is available here: http://www.mysewingmachineparts.com/top-quality-metal-sewing-machine-bobbins-125701-001-baby-lock-bernina-brother-riccar-simplicity-white/ . These are 10 for $6. There is a plastic version that's a bit cheaper: http://www.mysewingmachineparts.com/top-quality-plastic-sewing-machine-bobbins-136492-001-baby-lock-bernina-brother-riccar-simplicity-white/ . These two links include both other machines that use the bobbin and alternative part numbers to locate them from other vendors.

If you ask at a local sewing machine store for the Brother PE100 or BabyLock BL2100 bobbins, they should be able to help you find them.

I hope this helps.

Sewing backwards


try adjusting the top thread tension for the loops
try changing the needle
and see if that help any if not then take the machine back and
tell them what the machine is doing
if the machine was adjusted, then they should have checked the
stitches to make sure that the stitches were normal both forward
and backwards.

How to set straight stitch


You can buy a manual for the Simplicity Fashion Pro SW2145 from this link
http://www.sewingandcraftclub.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=3112&category_id=365&picksku=IBSW2145#top

I would guess from looking at an image of the machine, that you just turn the large dial on the front around to the number for the stitch you want, based on the selection displayed across the front of the machine, blue and red stitches. You may need to switch between blue and red on the selector to get the 2nd range of stitches, probably stretch type where the machine goes forwards and backwards ones, I'd guess.

And vary the stitch width using the dial beside the reversing lever on the lower front.
