Look at your manual. E usually denotes ERROR. The 5 means it is error #5.

SOURCE: machine will not sew forward without backstitching

You have selected the Stretch Stich (SS) mode on the stitch length regulator, just turn the knob around until you have a number 1 - 5 and that should be it.
The model number will be the last digits on the metal compliance plate with voltage etc.....looks like:
V / 1234 / 123454321 / 2016

This then would be a Model 2016

SOURCE: Viking 190 sewing machine stuck on backstitch

Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!

Two problems:

A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.

B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.

If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

Does my Brother SQ9185 sew backwards other than the push button backstitch?


Use the reverse button. That's what it is for. Sew forward and then push the button and sew in reverse.

If you have a darning foot, you can use it (drop the feed dogs) and then you manually move the fabric around while stitching.

Why does upper thread snap when backstitching?


May be an issue with the feed dogs, or possibly a burr on the hook. Lay a peice of scrap material under the foot as if you were going to sew, remove needle, then run machine in reverse to see if it feeds material backwards as it should

How do I back stitch


You push on the backstitch button. It's the button that looks like an upside down U. If all it does is take a few tiny stitches back then stops...you need to look at the screen...to the upper right you will see the upside down U and a scissors. make sure both of these are not selected. If one or both have a dark background...touch them and the background turns white/clear. Once they are unselected...you can backstitch at the same speed as going forward.

CS6000-i E5 showed on screen, now my backstitch doesnt work. Is this an adjustment I can make?


The start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller
was connected.

Disconnect the foot controller,

and then press the start/

stop button. Otherwise,

operate the machine by
using the foot controller.
Hope this helps.

Looking to tune up brother CP 6500. Squeaking And skipping occasional stitches. What grease to use and where to apply grease?


No grease please, only quality sewing machine oil. Some machines marked the oil positions with red. Small holes. Else take the top and left side covers of and use just a drop of oil where moving parts are joint. Here too you should find small holes that need a drop now and then.
