If you are someone who sews clothes on a regular basis, then you know how important it is to have a working sewing machine. However, if your machine is not properly set up or if it needs some TLC, then it can be difficult to get it back up and running.
In this article, we will discuss how to reverse sew a garment so that you can fix any problems that may have arisen.
How To Reverse Sewing Machine
If you are having trouble with your sewing machine, there is a good chance that the problem is related to one of the following: The bobbin case has become jammed or the top plate has become detached.
One of the thread guides has become dislodged or the spool wheel has broken. The bobbin case cover and/or spool wheel cover have been lost or damaged. There may be problems with the upper feed dog gear and lower feed dog gear, respectively.
It can be difficult to access certain parts of the sewing machine in order to fix it, so it’s important to know how to reverse sew it! Here are five easy steps on how to do so: First, disable the sewing machine by unplugging it from the power source and removing the plug from the wall outlet.
Next, remove both bobbins by unscrewing them from their holders and pulling them out through the front of the machine. Make sure not to touch any of the delicate needle-threading mechanisms while doing this! Remove both top and bottom plates by lifting them off their posts and set them aside on a flat surface.
Remove all six upper thread guides (two on each side), as well as both lower thread guides (one on each side). Finally, remove both bobbin case covers as well as both spool wheel covers – these can sometimes be tricky to get off.
Once all of these pieces have been removed, you can start working on fixing your sewing machine! To do this, first remove the upper feed dog gear by unscrewing its post from its bracket and then pull it free from its housing.
likewise, remove lower feed dog gear by unscrewing its post from its bracket and then pull it free from its housing too.
Be careful not to lose any of these pieces later on! Now that everything is loose and accessible, you can start cleaning it up using a damp cloth – make sure not to use soap as this could damage some of the components.
Finally, reattach everything in reverse order by screwing everything back together in sequence starting with upper feed dog gear and working your way down to lower feed dog gear before reinserting these into their respective brackets – make sure that all six threads are correctly tensioned when doing so.
Congratulations – now your sewing machine should work like new again.
Disable The Sewing Machine
If you have a machine that doesn’t work properly, it may be time to take some steps to try and fix it. By disabling the sewing machine, you can check if there is something wrong with the motor or threading before spending money on repairs.
Disabling your machine also allows you to troubleshoot any issues without damaging the machine. Some machines also come with an “emergency stop” button which will halt the sewing process in case of an emergency. Before disabling the machine, make sure that all of your supplies are nearby including a needle and thread.
After disabling the machine, remove the bobbin, needle and cord from the machine and store them safely so they don’t get lost or damaged in the future. Once everything is stored away, turn off the power to your sewing machine by unplugging it from the wall outlet and removing the plug from the back of your machine.
To reenable your sewing machine, first make sure that you have removed all of the previous supplies from it and then replace them in reverse order-bobbin, needle and cord Next, reconnect your power source to your sewing machine and press start on your keyboard or remote control once it has turned on.
If all goes well, you should now be able to sew like normal!
Remove Bobbin Case And Top Plate
In order to remove the bobbin case and top plate from your sewing machine, follow these simple steps: Start by lifting up on the front of the machine with one hand while you use your other hand to pry off the two parts.
Next, remove the bobbin case by gently pulling it away from the machine. Finally, remove the top plate by gently pushing it in from the front of the machine. Make sure to store all of these parts safely so that you can re-use them later if needed.
If you have any questions about how to remove these parts or need help troubleshooting your sewing machine, be sure to consult a professional! Keep your sewing machine in great condition by following these simple steps for removing and storing its components.
Remove Upper Thread Guide, Lower Thread Guide And Spool Wheel
When you need to remove the upper thread guide, lower thread guide and spool wheel on your sewing machine, follow these steps: Use a Phillips head screwdriver to unscrew the screws that hold each part in place.
Once the screws are removed, lift up each piece and set it aside. To use the reverse gear on your sewing machine, put the spool wheel in the forward position. Hold onto the upper thread guide with one hand while you insert the needle into the fabric with the other hand.
Keep holding onto the upper thread guide as you turn the spool wheel until it’s in the backwards position. The reverse gear should now be engaged and you can release the upper thread guide by gently pushing down on it with your fingers.
Now that all three parts are removed, you can easily clean them and reinstall them if necessary.

Remove Bobbin Case Cover
One way to remove the bobbin case cover on a sewing machine is by using a pull tab. Another way to remove the bobbin case cover on a sewing machine is by using one of the machine’s release levers.
If neither of those methods work, you can try prying up on one side of the case with a flat-head screwdriver. If prying doesn’t work and you don’t have a release lever, you might need to take off the entire casing by unscrewing it from the machine’s mounting post.
Make sure you put everything back in its rightful place after removing the casing or your machine will not sew properly. After taking care of the bobbin case cover, be sure to lubricate all moving parts with a light oil and replace any worn or missing parts as needed.
Remove Spool Wheel Cover
If you find yourself struggling to remove the spool wheel cover on your sewing machine, there are a few tips that can help. Pushing down from the top of the machine may help pry it off.
Pry it off with a blunt object like a screwdriver or sturdy knife. There is a possibility that the screws holding it in place will come loose over time, so be prepared to remove it if necessary.
Sometimes oil or grease will keep the wheel cover in place and require some effort to remove. Wiping down the area around the spool with a solvent-free cloth before trying to remove the cover may make removal easier.
If all else fails, you can call an expert for assistance! Keep in mind that not all machines have this particular cover–check your manual first to see how to remove it if needed.
And finally, don’t forget to store your tools and materials away when your sewing machine isn’t in use–they could get dusty and difficult to access if left out too long.
Remove Upper Feed Dog Gear, Lower Feed Dog Gear And Arm
If you are having trouble removing the upper feed dog gear, lower feed dog gear and arm on your sewing machine, it is likely because the gear is stuck. There are a few different ways to try to remove the gear so that you can get your machine running again.
You can use a prying tool to try to loosen the gears from their shafts, or hit them with a blunt object in an attempt to break them off. If those methods don’t work, you can use boiling water or a degreaser to clean the parts and remove any grease or debris.
Once everything is free and cleaned, gently re-attach the gears with some new adhesive and re-attach the arm onto the machine’s body.
Be sure not to overtighten anything as this could cause further damage to your sewing machine.
To reverse sew a piece of fabric, start by placing the right side of the fabric against the needle and thread, as shown in the photo below. After making sure that the seam is lined up correctly, slowly begin to feed the fabric through the machine from left to right.
When you reach the end of the seam, carefullypull it tight and cut off any excess threads. Finally, make sure that both sides of your fabric are perfectly aligned before using your machine’s normal sewing function.
