    Is the thread jammed? Maybe it needs cleaning!

    If it is a computerized machine, try unpluging i5t & then plug back in again.

    I have an Elna that did that all by itself when I turned it on. It wasvthe footpedal. When I replaced it...problem solved. I think it's a fine wire in the pedal that was pulled out. Hope this helps you

    There is a possibility that an inner spring has given out. Some older machines actually have some springs which control the switching from forward to reverse. At this point be brave take the machine apart inspect what you can see, look for any thing which appears unattached or broken. Try the reverse on the machine with it apart and see what parts move or do not. This should help to determine what has happened.
