It's an older mechanical, right? Most likely it has seized due to old oil that has dried.

I've used the following method on a seized 930 and it is purring away now.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

SOURCE: reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!

MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.

SOURCE: Machine sews only in reverse

Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.

SOURCE: Bernina 1630 problem

Your feed dogs sound like they are getting stuck,chec whether they are on the down position,and also make sure that you have cleaned any lint that builds up in the bobbin area, if all fails it will have to go into the technician,

SOURCE: lever is stuck in reverse

If the stitch length bar, which is located on the right side of the machine, is in the up position move it down to where the numbers are. Those numbers are referring to how many stitches the machine will sew in an inch. Therefore, if you put it on 10, your machine will sew 10 stitches per inch. It being up will cause your machine to go in reverse.

SOURCE: My model 210 is stuck in reverse. Can you help?

The only thing you can do to possible free the mechanism is to turn the lower dial back and forth a bit, from the position where it is in permanent reverse to the numbered area on the dial. Make sure the selector is not on the buttonhole position. That machine doesn't really have a history of that issue but anything is possible, especially if it has sat for awhile and not been used. If moisture was present where it was stored, it's possible the feed linkage is slightly rusted and simply stuck.

Stitch selector knob on bernina 600, not Deco, is stuck and cannot select needle position, However the width of stitch part of the knob is working.This knob has 2 parts, needle position and width control


Your machine (Bernina 600 Record) has most likely frozen (seized) due to lack of regular maintenance. Don't panic. It can be fixed with a lot of elbow grease, good quality oil and a hairdryer. The following method has resurrected several Berninas I've picked up as "nonworking."

What would cause my Bernina 1230 to only sew backwards?


Hmmm, not sure I can answer your problem. I have several Berninas (older than your 1230) but have not had this problem. Wondering if your machine needs oiling--like maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck. With mechanical machines, I've been able to loosen stuck parts using heat from a handheld hair dryer. Not sure that would work on your machine.

Is there a button on this 807 machine bernina which you can press for it to stitch backwards like on the singer machine 507 as its saves time on tiring ends up at the beginning and end of sewing thank...


The stitch length control is moved upwards, beyond the 'zero' position to make it sew backwards. To demonstrate, with the machine off, adjust the stitch length to '2' using the knob on the stitch-length lever. Now push the lever upwards until it stops - it will go past the zero position and this is now in reverse mode.

My bernina patchwork 140 will not sew in reverse when I press the reverse button has the button gone bad the button hole won't sew ithe back stitch either?


Some machines will not do any of their automatic forwards and backwards movement type stitches in reverse, are you trying to reverse in straight stitch or a more complex stitch.

The Activa is a late model quality machine, do you have a Bernina dealer locally you could ring up and ask or take it to?

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

Bernina 1090 only sewing backwards


1.Turn the bobbin winder off.
2.You have to reverse the wires on the carbon brushes.

3.Make sure that you have the needle in correctly- with the flat side to the back. Those machines rarely go out of time.

Bernina 930


Have you ever done a thorough internal oil of your machine? These mechanical machines rely on oil to keep moving but, over time, that oil dries and starts to stick things together. I do a deep internal oil about annually and oil the hook at least every 8 hours of sewing.

There's an oil diagram in this answer:
