Automatic button hole not working in ambition 1.5

Makes no difference when I pull down the leaver on the left. The machine sews a button hole that looks like two c's linked together. Leaver does not click when you push it back

It sounds like the machine needs some adjustment in the buttonhole
gears or the cam could be damaged.

SOURCE: 7570 Presser foot leaver..Slow to dropp down

Good morning,

If it's been a while (more than a year) since you've had your 7570 serviced by an authorized Pfaff tech, it's likely that it's just gotten gummed up and needs some attention and adjusting.

It's definitely fixable, but not something that you'll likely be able to do yourself - some of those parts are just not easy to get to and the lubricants needed aren't directly available.

Hope this helps,

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

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.

Need instructions on button holes


Move the width bar to between 4 and 6, the higher number makes a wider buttonhole. Move the length bar to the middle or right of the buttonhole icon. Set the selector dial on #1, snap on the buttonhole foot with a button snugged up in the back slot. Pull down the button stop lever behind the needle threader and make sure it is lower than the edge of the buttonhole foot, and behind the little tab on the left side of the buttonhole foot. Position the needle over where you want the bottom of the buttonhole to be. It will bartack, sew backwards, bar tack and sew forward based on the size of your button. When it is finished it will stop sewing. Turn the stitch selector dial to #2 to reset, then back to #1 to sew the next buttonhole. Practice on scraps until you are happy with the stitch length and width.

My button holes aren't consistent -backing up doesn't work proper


It sounds as though you are using the Memory button hole setting which sews the BH forward on one side(leg of the button hole ) and backward on the other side. You have button holes on Numbers 11-16. I think #16 is the one you are trying to use but the others are easier. Put the button in the special foot, pull the BH lever down( It is located on the left side of the machine towards the rear of the machine ).Select #11 and the machine should sew both legs in the same direction. This machine has always made great button holes.

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

I have emerald 183 and i can't figure out how to use the buttonhole feature. it keeps sewing just one side. also where exactly do i put the button?


Make sure you have pull down the arm that will engage the button hole mechaizm. Put a button in the back of you button hole foot, attach foot, reach up on the left side just below the light and pull the lever down, choose the button hole , lower tension to 3 and sew out the button hole. The button hole foot should push on the arm when it gets to the end and complete the rest of the button hole. If the columns do not match then it has to be serviced by a husqvarna dealer.

Machine made buttonholes.


Here ya go! For 1 Step Automatic Buttonholes: 1. Place button into the buttonhole attachment. 2. Push slider to hold button securely in the slot. The button goes to the back! 3. Put button foot onto needle bar--just attach it securely. 4. Place needle thread and bobbin thread UNDER buttonhole attachment and let 4"-5" of thread trail behind it. 5. There's a lever called a Button Stop to the left of the needle bar. Give it a gentle tug and pull it down. Pull forward. Hear a click? Now the machine knows what length to STOP sewing! 6. Put foot on pedal and machine will sew barrack closest to you first. It will continue all around until it makes complete rotation of each side. 7. You must do these steps for each of your buttonholes! IMPORTANT: Make sure you set your dial for making buttonhole pattern because that "tells" machine to zig zag, and use appropriate size needle for the particular weight of your fabric. A new needle before you begin is recommended. Turn screw on needlebar to loosen screw. Hold it so it does not slip down into the feed dog area! New needle is inserted flat shank toward back of needlebar as far as it will go. Tighten screw. Did this help? Hope so!
