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.

I had the same problem and no ones advise worked as i did all those things. Then i realized either the foot itself was malfunctioning or the button lever itself. What happened is it would begin a buttonhole and stop, beep, and give me the bl code, or it would do the entire left side and then straight stitch down and not stop straight stitching. It would never do the turn and botton hole back up. What i did was when it would do the first beep i would wiggle the button lever and the foot and it would start again. Then, when the straight stitch on the right side got to the bottom of the button hole i released the foot pedel, wiggled everything again (gently), and pressed the foot pedel again. It Worked! It went right back up for a perfect buttonhole. This is now my button hole routine:-) hope that helps someone desperate for a solution like i was.

I'm trying to sew my first buttonhole. It sews briefly then 6L comes on the computer and it won't complete the buttonhole What am I doing wrong?


Make sure you pull down the buttonhole lever from the underside of the machine (near where the needle threader is) If you don't do this, the machine will make a few stitches and then stop. with error 6L.

thanks for using fixya.

I am having trouble buttonholling on my Janome, it is new. It starts sewing and then stops and blinks 6L. What have I done wrong


Check your manual and follow the instructions. The error message may be listed in the trouble shooting at the back of the manual.

Probably will need to put on the buttonholing foot, pull down a lever which guides the machine to sew the length correctly and choose a buttonholing setting on the stitch selection.

Also, for good buttonholes, always interface the fabric to give it stability.

I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.


I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

Code 6L when making a tiny buttonhole.


I have not solved the problem but.........neither am I going to pay up front to talk to one of your consultants. I will gladly pay if they can solve it but am not going to pay up front for them to tell me that I have to take my machine in to a repairman. Thanks but no thanks. Sharol
