Fixing the reverse lever,

on a Janome Decor Ezcel Pro 5124

A family member recently bought a sewing machine at a garage sale - but it would not reverse.

This is the way I fixed it.

While this is specifically for the Janome 5124, it may well apply to other machines - so it could be worth a quick look under the cover. Later on I use the word "Inox". This is a spray on lublicant, and the one I recommend - however it is more expensive than - say - something like WD40, but anything like this should work.

First up, take out the power plug from the machine, and unthread the cotton. You will be turning the machine by hand and it might get knotted.
