I own a Sears Kenmore machine that began sewing backwards

Make sure that the reverse button isn't stuck inside. if all else fails, go back to sears and have them look at it.

The needle can't be turned backwards manually


The needle should only go up/down. Sewing forward or reverse involves the feed dogs grabbing and moving the fabric. On most sewing machines, you should never turn the hand wheel backwards. This can change the timing and damage the machine. Instead, try holding the Reverse lever or button then turn the hand wheel forward.

Since the sewing machine jammed with the needle bar at its lowest point, open the bobbin cover. If you see a loop of thread, try and slide that loop until it clears. If there are several loops around the bobbin/bobbin case, you might try carefully cutting the thread. If the fabric of your sewing project has been stuffed into the needle opening on the plate, try carefully clipping threads to loosen the jam.

If that doesn't work, then double-check that the bobbin winding mechanism isn't engaged. If the unit is still stuck, you might have damage to the various linkages/bearings between the hand wheel and needle bar. The problem may require taking the machine in for service.

I hope these ideas help. Please add a comment with the make and model of the sewing machine for further assistance.

(When you do get the needle bar to go up, you may want to change your needle. Also change the needle plate to the straight stitch plate if you are doing a straight stitch with a lightweight fabric.)

Have a Kenmore 1357. Was working perfectly until I began sewing satin ruffle onto fleece. Seems to siege. Needle won't even try to go into material. Just goes to top of presser foot and stops.


Is it a mechanical machine (not computerized)? Did you oil the internal metal parts that rub against other metal parts? With an older mechanical machine, frequently the old oil turns to goo and sticks things rather than lubricates. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Hand rotate the wheel and place 2 drops of oil every place metal rubs metal (including the bobbin area). To help loosen things, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior of the machine.

This process was used on an older Kenmore that had totally frozen, but it was working again within 15 minutes.

I read on internet different sewing machine model part can interchange with one another does anyone know what model interchanges with Kenmore 8 Stitch Sewing Machine Model 158 13450 and does anyone know...


A sewing machine technician may be able to help determine who actually made the machine. The problem is, Sears negotiated with various companies to make Kenmore products and Sears frequently changed manufacturers. I believe Janome made some Kenmore sewing machines but during what period and for how long is questionable.

You can try searching for:

and see what comes up.

Singer 4166 suddenly started sewing only in reverse even when forward mode checked


open the top of the sewing machine. Then press the button or lever that changes the forward reverse mode. You may find that something got stuck there where it should effect the machine part. May a drop of oil on that spot can help?
