My sewing machine now only sews in reverse

When I acquired this machine last week it sewed forward just fine, but the reverse didn't work. Now I got the reverse button to work but it won't sew forward.

Maybe there's a problem with the reverse and forward button.

SOURCE: started sewing backwards now not moving material at all

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.

Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.

Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

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: Will not sew in reverse.

sometimes it is the spring, open the machine up and take a look at the spring, it may be broken or stretched. It should be located right where the reverse lever is, inside.

SOURCE: new home SR 2100 sewing in reverse when it should sew

You need to take the machine in for adjustment, on that model you cannot do it yourself

My Steelmaker SW A 2000, recently acquired, sewed fine when I got it home, now it won't feed the material through so it can sew properly.


That sounds like a problem with the height of the feed dogs. Can you see them raise and lower? My advice with any newly acquired sewing machine is to have it cleaned, lubricated, serviced and the timing checked.

My heavy duty Singer sewing machine is stuck in reverse. How do I fix it?


If this machine has a mechanical lever or button it may be internal parts have broken and need to be replaced. this is a common issue with lots of machines. The machine breaks when in reverse and will only sew in reverse. Please have a professional look at the machine and make a repair if necessary.

The reverse switch works ok


check the feed dogs in the needle plate area to see if their in the up position, if their not find the feed dogs lever & see if it's in the up position, if it's not the the feed dogs need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

I am having the same problem. Initially it did sew forward, but now only sews in reverse. The large grey lever on the right front of the machine should make it sew in reverse only as long as it is held down, but mine sews in reverse only. Hmmmm....think there are many people with this problem.

Won't operate. Won't go forward or in reverse, happened all of the sudden. Hand crank fine, but the whirring sound comes from that area.


it's possible that something in the machine has come loose or broken
it would have to be serviced at a sewing machine shop

My machine is sewing in reverse how do I get it to go forward


if your reverse is a lever then pull the lever down to normal sewing

if it's a button, try pushing it several times & try to see if that will help it unstick

if it doesn't use some wd-40 on it & see if that will work,,& keep working the button
