You've most likely accidentally hit the "reverse" stitch button, which sews in the opposite direction. The button will be marked by one of these symbols: my sewing machine is sewing backwards how to put - grtartst_1.jpg

This symbol indicates the reverse stitch button. Just press this button and your machine should start sewing in the right direction!

SOURCE: backward stitching

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.

SOURCE: sewing machine only sews backwards

Make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward and the stitch length is the highest level that it can go. If that doesn't make it go forward, you will have to use the old hair dryer trick. Take the top lid of the machine off and heat the inside with a heated hairdryer. Work the stitch length and the reverse until it frees up.

SOURCE: only sews backwards

On most sewing machines there is a little lever that controls the direction that the fabric is drawn through the machine. The lever on yours must be in the 'reverse' position.

reach around the back of the head and see if it back there.

SOURCE: serger

As long as this is a sewing machine and not a serger, I don't know about them. I only tinker on my own. Remove the bottom. There is a rod running along the length of the machine. it needs to be turned 180 degrees. You may need to retime the machine.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

Everytime I go to sew the thread always knots up


Likely your upper thread tension is too light and/or the proper thread routing is not right on the machine. Your bobbin might also be wound backwards.

What were you doing immediately before this started? Buttonholes? I bought an Elna SU in 1973, still going strong now. Sometimes after doing buttonholes it did weird things - fortunately I had two friends with identical machines to help me. I hadn't put all the controls back properly after doing no turn buttonholes. I just wonder if you'd got the same problem?

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

My button holes aren't consistent -backing up doesn't work proper


It sounds as though you are using the Memory button hole setting which sews the BH forward on one side(leg of the button hole ) and backward on the other side. You have button holes on Numbers 11-16. I think #16 is the one you are trying to use but the others are easier. Put the button in the special foot, pull the BH lever down( It is located on the left side of the machine towards the rear of the machine ).Select #11 and the machine should sew both legs in the same direction. This machine has always made great button holes.

I have model 8280 and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up on the bottom. I have tried to rethread it but it keeps happening.


i think your putting in your bobin backwards,
to check put your bobin in and hold bobin , and bobin case by thread if it unrolls its backwards,
hope this helps!!
