If, it has been sitting for a while, try this trick, take off the case, (pay attention to where the screws go and put them in a bowl) now take a hair dryer and let it blow on the reverse lever and the stitch length control. While you are there oil your machine as per your manual. Sometimes they get stuck from lack of use and will not sew for you. Hope it works, other than that you may have to take it in for service. Good luck

How did you do backstitch on a diagonal when you don't have a defiant hole to go into on Aida cloth for cross stitch


If i understand your question correctly, what i do is go through the exact middle of the square (middle of the 4 holes) when i'm backstitching where it doesn't line up with holes. It usually works pretty well because the weave of the cloth is symmetrical, so there is an exact middle. It's just tough to get your needle into sometimes.

If i understand your question correctly, i go into the exact middle of the square (between the 4 holes) when the line i need to backstitch doesn't line up with holes. The way the fabric is woven it usually works pretty well, with there being an exact center.

Singer 4423 stuck on backstitch!


Is sewing machine set for buttonhole making? Sounds like it got "confused" in the process of a buttonhole revolution making a reverse stitch, and so you need to change adjustment settings top left, bottom right, remove extension table and turn feed dogs switch back left of machine to UP position.
Did this help?

Hello. I hope u can help me. I cannot get my stitching tight? If I pull the thread it comes right out. Thanks Jodie


You need to backstitch over the beginning and end of your stitching, Jodie. When you start out, manually turn the wheel to put the needle into the fabric. Push the foot pedal to stitch forward a little. Now, reverse over those stitches to nearly where you started stitching. Use the foot pedal to go forward again, stitch to where you want to end. Reverse again, just a 1/4 inch or so. Then take the fabric out and cut your stitching.

This backstitching keeps your thread from pulling straight out. You should always use it with straight stitches and general zigzag stitches. Don't use it with decorative or embroidery stitches, though, as it mars the appearance of them. But if you're doing any type of topstitching that uses straight stitches, backstitch in the area that will be in the seam allowance, ever so slightly, or your top stitching will pull out, too.

Hope that helps!

Viking 190 sewing machine stuck on backstitch


Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!

Two problems:

A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.

B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.

If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.
