Re: Bernette 75 only backwards
Do you mean the fabric feeds backwards?
Does the handwheel turn in the normal direction ie towards you? Has it been unused for a while? If so, sounds a lot like the reverse motion mechanism is seized - it will be located inside the free arm. Some Janome machines do this a lot. The lubricant used becomes thick/ sticky and does not allow the mechanism to work. When you operate the reverse, do the feeddogs move at all? If not, you will need to free up the mechanism - Innox is quite good for this, just spray it, leave it a few hours, then try operating the reverse.If it will not free up, it will need to be disassembled and cleaned, oiled and reassembled.

The presser foot is a 2 piece thing, remove the foot, then remove the top bit that the foot attaches to (the shank). Look at the bottom of the shank while pressing the little lever or button on the back of it, you will see how the foot attaches to the shank.
Possibly you have the bobbin back in upside down and its turning the wrong way. Happens all the time. If you mean it will not pick up the bottom thread then maybe the needle is in backwards or the machine is out of time. I doubt you will have to replace a part but if it does or you need to have the timing adjusted you will have to maybe look at the Yellow Pages or here online and find the nearest sewing machine repair or dealership and have them look at it.
