Singer Quantum CXL: After I use the reverse button and release it, the machine does not go back to stitching forward. It stays "stuck" in reverse until I turn it off and back on again. :-( ?

the reverse mechanism is not releasing to go back to its normal forward position. if you do not have pressure on the reverse button and it feels like there is some slack with no tension on the button, the mechanism has not returned to the forward position. there may be a spring that has the end broken off to keep tension on the reverse mechanism,, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see what the problem is.

Cxl manual


User's Manuals, including yours, are available as a free download the Singer Sewing Machine website. Actually, when you enter CXL you get the XL-50 user's manual, which is essentially the same machine, although a few of the patterns may be different. The CXL, XL-50, XL-10 and XL-1 are basically the same machine; I own a CXL and XL-50, and love them. They can sew SIDEWAYS--straight AND zigzag stitch!

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

I have a quantum cxl. It will sew normal stiches but it will not sew the decorative stiches


The needle shaft sticks to the curved arm and won't come down because a piece of plastic, about an eighth of an inch thick had broken from age. It prevented the shaft from staying up on the needle arm. Open the cover, try to stitch decorative stitch and see what I mean. Purchase a package of 4-10 by 1/2 nut and bolt pack. Screw the nut all the way onto the bolt. Using needle-nosed plyers, Carefully bend the curved arm slightly, and place bolt into the hole on the top of the needle shaft. Nut will keep it in place. Lowering the needle shaft using wheel, carefully bend arm back in place. Try decorative stitch. It should work. It does for me.

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.
