    Sewing Machine sewing backward

    I'm just curious if this has happened to anyone else.

    Lately on occasion when I start up my machine to sew something I hit that little Start button to start to sew and the machine sends the fabric backward instead of forward. Usually if I turn the machine off and back on it corrects itself, sometimes not. Once I put a test swatch under the foot and then it worked ok. A few other times, like today, I cleaned out any lint in the machine which wasn't much as I do that quite a lot anyway.

    Also I did have a problem about a month ago that the feet had fallen too low to feed the fabric. The switch would not raise and lower them as they should have. I was able to get that fixed watching some utube tutorials. I'm wondering if there is a link in the two problems although I can't imagine why a machine would stitch backward as a result.

    Anyone ever had this problem? (It's working again fine now).

    Yes, I have had this happen. In my case my machine won't quit sewing in reverse after I tell it to go forward. I also turn off the machine and it seems to reset itself. Go figure....

      I have a 'reverse' button on my modern machines - one of them sticks quite often if I use it. Maybe that's what you are experiencing? Not sure about what machine you are using though. I have H-Vs.
      Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

        My friend Pat has this problem with her Brother machine too. Most times the off/on trick works but sometimes it doesn't. I would take it in to a repair shop, but she's not that bothered by it as I would be.

          I had that problem with my pfaff.

          It was a part of the feeder system inside the machine that had brook.
          I had to send it to the sewing doctor for surgery!

          Thankfully he did not need replacement of the whole part .

          After that it has worked beautiful

          God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
          The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
          A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
          And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

            My Brother machine has never sewn backwards but more than once - especially after using the walking foot - my machine accessory foot would slip down because the screw holding everything was loosened.

                i picked up a cheap Janome at a garage sale once for free because it sewed backwards only. wanted to see if I could get it fixed. figured nothing to lose since it was free. Never did get it to sew right.

                  Yes mine's a Brother too. Ok I'll watch it since so far it's just a minor annoyance. When it's to take it to the tech I'll also mention there were some feed dog issues too:-)
                  Thanks everyone...at least I know it's not my imagination LOL
