    The machine is brand new and this is the first time I have used it. When using auto buttonhole stitch 6,7 or 8 it doesn't finish but gives 3 quick beeps and the L6 code displaying in the window. It always stops in the exact same place. It completes the front bartack and stops partway up the left row, then beeps and shows the code. I have played with the tension, changed fabrics, everything I can think of ....nothing works. Any ideas?

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!

When I try to make a button hole, my machine starts to stitch and after a few seconds it stops, beeps, and flashes the code BL on the screen.


Call your Sears store sewing department and ask them if they can help you, your manual should tell wha the error code BL stands for. Usually the salesperson who sells the machines has some training on the machines. I used to love it when they gave lessons on their machines, now you are stuck on your own. You would think that they would try to give more customer service instead of here's the box, give me your money and go. Good luck, you deserve some TLC from them, after all you could have bought a machine anywhere and you chose them, it is up to them to earn your loyalty to their store.

Machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.


I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

Button Hole Beeping on 7462


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!!!
