Question about Kenmore 15218 Mechanical Sewing Machine
How do I get my machine to sew forward? It will only sew in reverse though I have followed the instructions to:
hold down the reverse button to sew in reverse
release the reverse button to sew forward
The reverse button seems to be stuck.
My kenmore 12 stitch was stuck in reverse. My friend used to work with a repair man, she said to open bottom some times thread is bound up, and may need oiled. My husband checked and found a bunch of lint and dust, he removed it and oiled it. My machine now works like new. Also sometimes the spring that operates reverse button can break or come loose. Good Luck!
