Problem with Reverse Button on older Kenmore sewing machine number: 385.1788180.

Suddenly our machine starts sewing in REVERSE instead of forward. When you hold down the Reverse Button it sews FORWARD. Help please? :)

I can understand how important it is to have the right information for your sewing machine. I was wondering if the reverse lever feels normal to you? If it does not, can you describe it to me? I am assuming that the linkage or mechanism attached to the reverse and stitch length lever, inside of the machine, is stuck or jammed. It could also be a mix up in the wiring. However, it would be best to take this to a repair shop for diagnoses. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using
