stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered

sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower
the buttonhole lever.

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.
