This happened to me too! Make sure your buttonholer isn't pulled down and locked in to where it's making the machine sew backward. That's what happened to me.

The reverse lever has a locking position. It is locked when you push down and in. To reverse this, simply grasp the lever and pull it towards you.

    Then, you should be able to sew forward again.

BROTHER XR 65 OILING

Sewing machines like the XR-65 should not get oiled by their user. They have sealed bearings. If you suspect a problem with the bearings or other moving parts, you should take the sewing machine to a good sewing machine repair person.

Generally, when the manual gives no lubrication directions, don't add oil. Electronic sewing machines can easily be damaged if excess oil gets into the wrong part of the machine.

I hope this helps.

I have a brother xr 65 and the reverse stitch lever fell off how can i fix it?

I'm not sure that this type of problem lends itself to a DIY fix. You might need a technician's expertise.

Stitch length dial is stuck on SS

Likely broken threads wrapped around internal components. Have it prefessoinally serviced.

Sewing machine wont stitch in reverse, needle hitting bobbin feed.

since the needle is hitting the bobbin feed it has to be replaced, if the machine continues to hit the bobbin feed the most likely the machine is out of time & has to be retimed at a sewing machine repair shop
they would also be able to see why the machine won't stitch in reverse

Material will not move forward

Make sure the presser foot is coming all the way down. Check your stitch length setting too.

Bobbin tangles on Brother xr 65

This was happening to me too, I reversed the bobbin feeds and it has not tangled since then. I was orignally feeding the bobbin from the left side and now i feed the thread from the right. It works great this way.
