Buttonhole feature


try changing the needle
make sure the button hole lever is pulled down, it should be on the left
hand side of the needle, if your machine has one
it's also possible that the machine needs to be checked to see if
there is something wrong with a gear or just needs some type of
adjust inside of the machine

Singer 9910 will NOT stitch buttonholes no matter what is tried, it just keeps beeping.


I have a computerized machine also, when I start to do a buttonhole my machine it beeps & gives me a error message BL. which means I forgot to pull the buttonhole lever down again

Can't figure out automatic buttonhole use on MC4000


2 things must do:
You have to use the buttonhole foot.
You have to pull down the lever to the lowest position (just left of needle bar/ presser bar up in machine.)
Set to buttonhole. After each buttonhole, be sure to change off the buttonhole then reset to buttonhole to reset the buttonhole to the beginning

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 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!
