After seeing this, I went onto sewingpartsonline.com and was able to order a new reverse lever for $7.95. Considerably cheaper than taking it in for repair.

I have my moms pfaff 1222 which I love. But having issues with buttonholes. Seems first row of stitching works but when I push button to make end stitch and then reverse it doesnt reverse


Your machine looks quite similar to some of the older Berninas I've worked on in the past. Perhaps your machine has seized due to the old oil solidifying. This could have happened with the reverse mechanism and the selector levers/buttons on your machine.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

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

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.

I think that it is your timing messed up and you have to take it in for service because it requires expertise and special tools. Unfortunately, it is usually expensive unless it is under warranty.

Pfaff Hobby 1142 Reverse stitch lever twisted doesn't work


Take it back to the Dealer.( He probably has a guarantee on the work he did). Let him show you how it works. If he won't do this then it is definitely time to find a more reputable dealer. If you paid for a repair it should have been repaired.
