Brother Super Galaxie 2100 Buttonhole lever not working

Hi All Thanks for any help, When I pull down the buttonhole lever and select a buttonhole stitch the screen just keeps on telling me to pull down the lever??? I cant stitch any buttonhole stitch. Is there a sensor or something attatched to the buttonhole lever which may have malfunctioned!!Its very annoying I need to do buttonholes everything else on the machine is perfect Thanks Guys Hugs Fuschia

I have a problem with my CS 8150 which sometimes tells me to lower the pressure foot even though I had already did it. What clears the problem for me is that I eject the thread cassette and re-install and I can go ahead and sew. Try that to see if it will quit telling you to pull down the lever.

My automatic buttonhole stitch is not working on my elna sewing machine ,even when the lever is pulled down


you should a buttonhole button that must be pushed on the machine
either before you pull the buttonhole lever down or after to let the
sewing machine know what function to use, my sewing machine
won't let me make a buttonhole unless I push the buttonhole button
or yes, like you said the buttonhole foot could be damaged.

E1 flashes on the message window of my brother sewing machine


Brother Computer Codes
  • E1: Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.
    E2: You chose a stitch other than a buttonhole stitch or a bar tack stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered position. Raise the buttonhole lever.
    E3: If you selected the buttonhole or tack bar stitch and start to sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower the buttonhole lever.
    E4: You hit the reverse button while the bobbin winder shaft was moved over to the right. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left.
    E5: On automatic sewing machines, the start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was plugged in. Unplug the foot controller if you are using the automatic function.
    E6: This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

Brother sewing machine cs2000i botton hole problem as follows the foot stays in place and does not feed. I have changed the thread, looked at the video, clean any clogs. What is it?


it does not specify if this machine is electronic or mechanical, but electronic sewing machine,,like mine have what is called a buttonhole lever & unless that buttonhole lever is pulled gently down the buttonhole maker will not work.
that may be the problem with the machine
or it maybe the feeddogs may not be working,,check the feeddog knob or lever to see what position it's in,,up position is for sewing & down position is for darning

My buttonhole is not working I hear a beep when i press down on the foot to go, what am I doing wrong


I get the same beeping when I forget to pull down the buttonhole lever

if you have the automatic buttonhole & the buttonhole foot that you have to put a button in,,check & see if there is a buttonhole lever that has to be pulled down, it will be a lever to the left of the needle bar

I am trying to make a buttonhole using the buttonhole foot and everytime i go to sew the machine beeps and will not let me sew?


if you have a automatic buttonhole , then you should have a buttonhole lever that you have to pull down, before you start to do the buttonhole,, my machine will not let me do a buttonhole unless I pull down the buttonhole lever

What does E3 mean on a Cs6000 Brothr machine? I do not have my manuel


Hi
Here's a copy of the manual from the Brother site.
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_CS_6000_ES_2000_EN_185.PDF
Look on page 64 of the PDF file for the error codes.
I think E3 means:

Problem: The buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and

the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button

was pressed if the foot controller is not connected)

while the buttonhole lever is raised.

Solution: Lower the buttonhole lever
before continuing the operation
