The designer 1 has a weakness of the reverse pad (rubber button set) on left side of the machine wearing out and not working. You can try pushing from different angle, or pushing hard, but it most likely needs to be replaced. If you did buttonholes with the buttonhole sesor foot (foot with a wheel and a cord that plugs in), it would automatically size the buttonhole and you wouldn't need to reverse and you can use "FIX" to tie a knot instead of reverse

Hi can’t make the button hole big enough using the special one step Pfaff foot . Won’t go bigger than 8mm


It could be that 8mm is the limit for the buttonhole foot. You can try making buttonholes manually with the sewing machine. Not really difficult. Just need to be careful marking the buttonhole and stitching. Recommend practicing on scrap fabric before trying it on the project.

Bernina 350 buttonhole - when I hit the reverse button, the machine just keeps stitching backwards. It doesn't stop to do the tck and then go forward again.


Here's a video:

It looks like the Reverse button just needs to be "tapped." On my machine, if I hold the Reverse button too long, it turns into a continuous reverse until I deactivate it.

Bernina 350 16 Buttonholes

If it still won't make buttonholes, you should take it for service. On machines that have the "eye" on the presser foot, the machine needs to be calibrated to use the buttonhole presser foot. Be sure to take the presser foot when having the machine serviced.

Singer 1036 1-step buttonhole foot. It will make 1 perfect buttonhole. When I try to make the next one it makes a short buttonhole, never moving forward enough to hit the lever.


Possibly your machine does not make repeat buttonholes and you need to set every time? Are you stitching all the way around before resetting.

Unable to make buttonhole


did you put the buttonhole foot on?
did you put the button in the buttonhole foot?
did you pull down the buttonhole lever to the left of the needle?
did you choose the buttonhole program you want?
if you answered yes, to all these questions then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see why it won't make a button hole

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.

My Singer 2950 buttonhol-er stitches only one side of the buttonhole. It does not reverse and finish the buttonhole. What to do??


Have you pulled down the buttonhole trigger lever at the back of the sewing area? most modern machines have one of these - when you use it with the button hole foot, you'll see the foot has a little piece that sticks out and triggers the lever to begin stitching the reverse bead and bar tack of the buttonhole.

Buttonhole pattern Wheh I select the buttonhole pattern that I would like I get an error. The machine sews on every stitch but the buttonhole pattern.


Are you using the buttonhole foot when you try? It will look like this.

Also, there is a lever you need to pull down to deploy when stitching buttonholes. It triggers the machine to stop stitching out the side of the buttonhole, reverses then does the other side. Its a little lever up in the head near the pressure foot bar and needle bar. It will touch the sticking out finger on the buttonhole foot to trigger the reverse motion in the programm.

Can't complete a manual buttonhole


Don't think of it as a button hole. Run 2 lines of satin stitch (both forward) about 1/4 an inch apart. Bar tack the ends. Voila'! Large button hole.
