Button Hole Beeping on 7462

Every time I try to sew a button hole I get a beeping sound. The button whole presser foot is on, the button whole lever is down and the correct stitch is selected. I tried sewing a straight stitch and that is working fine.

Can someone help?

Yes frustrating issue this one. I discovered that you need to pull down the retractable button hole guide found behind the needle threader (not visible when you are sitting at the machine).

Hope this helps, happy sewing!!!

Just put my button hole foot on for the first time ready to practise a button hole but it just keeps beeping any ideas?


Yes, you need to review the steps to sew a button hole, because just putting on the foot is not enough. Generally there are several other things that must be set before it will actually sew buttonholes. Download your user's manual free at the Singer Sewing machine website, and review it.

Trying button hole attachment- installed properly I think - when I push on presser foot an alarm goes off and it will not sew


Hi Dot,

1. Make sure you pull the buttonhole lever down- left back of your machine.
2. Select the button hole icon, or select the corresponding number for a button hole-very important.

Good Luck

The machine is beeping and does not start. It


Is your button hole lever down? I had the same problem after sewing a button hole and couldn't figure out why I couldn't return to normal sewing. Once I raised the button hole lever the machine worked again.

Machine beeps and won't sew when buttonhole foot is attached - I have followed directions very carefully


I just figured out how to use the buttonhole feature today. Make sure where you insert the button is towards the back of the machine. Pull down the button hole lever and make sure it's between to two plastic notches. The buttonhole lever will actually be pressed against notch B as described in the instructions. Insert your material and let the bottonhole foot down. You will to play with the stitch width and length to get the right size opening. I hope this helps!

Insert the button into the special button hole foot. put the foot on the machine.Pull down the button hole lever( It's near the presser foot lever towards the back of the machine). Place your needle where you want the button hole to be. Select the button hole pattern and press on the pedal. Watch for the end of the button hole.

I am trying to use automatic button hole and it keeps beeping and showin bl?


Ok, so all the credit goes to this website http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/95
Photo 7 shows a buttonhole lever that comes down and contacts the auto buttonhole presser foot. The machine manual is a little vague about this in the section about buttonholes. At the point when it shows the lever being pulled down, the manual should reference the part number in the list of part names in section 1, and it would have been easier for me not to have mistaken that lever with the stop on the side of the presser foot that the lever sits against . . . . that also kinda looks like a lever! Probably a no-brainer for someone who does this all the time, but for a noobie like me . . . .I'm glad I found the website above. So . . . .the machine is now making perfect buttonholes 30 seconds after finding the butonhole lever! Groovy!
