SOURCE: buttonhole jams - 'bl' what do I do?

Hi,
Have just had the same thing. Found out that the BL stands for Buttonhole Lever. On pg 22 of your manual you will see at step 3 that you need to pull down the buttonhole lever as far as you can before attempting to sew. On your machine it is a black lever tucked up under near the needle. Hope this helps. Cheers

I am having trouble buttonholling on my Janome, it is new. It starts sewing and then stops and blinks 6L. What have I done wrong


Check your manual and follow the instructions. The error message may be listed in the trouble shooting at the back of the manual.

Probably will need to put on the buttonholing foot, pull down a lever which guides the machine to sew the length correctly and choose a buttonholing setting on the stitch selection.

Also, for good buttonholes, always interface the fabric to give it stability.

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!
