SOURCE: Buttonholes

Put on the C foot. Select the buttonhole stitch. The machine will start sewing in the bottom left corner of the the buttonhole. Sew the length that you need, press and release the reverse button and sew the right side of the buttonhole. When you get back to the bottom, press and release the reverse button again and the buttonhole will be finished and the thread will tie off and the machine will stop. If the buttonhole is what you want, press and release the Stop button and the machine will repeat this buttonhole as many times as you need until the machine is turned off or the Stop is pressed again. When repeating, you need not press the reverse. Just press down on the foot control and continue until the machine stops by itself.
If you don't like the first one, just sew another one using the reverse button to set the ends.

SOURCE: I need to learn how to make a buttonhole .

You may be able to still get that manual, check with your dealer. If not you can call Viking at: 1-800-474-6437 if it's out of print for a photo copy of the original owners manual.

To make a buttonhole do the following:

1. Turn the selector dial to the top position, That is the first step of the buttonhole.
2. Turn the stitch length dial (the bottom dial) to the picture of the buttonhole, it's between the 0 and the 1 on the dial.
3 Put on the "C" foot and put the tension dial, (the small dial just above and to the right of the needle) on 4.
4. On a test fabric, sew about an inch or so and stop. Turn the selector dial down one click and sew the bar tack of the buttonhole. Just do a few passes, don't build up alot of stitches here.
5. Turn the dial down another click to the 3rd step, the right side of the buttonhole and sew until you reach the place where you started the left column of the buttonhole and stop.
6. Turn the dial UPWARD one click to the bar tack position again and do another bar tack like you did at the top of the buttonhole. Don't build up alot of stitches here, about three passes does the trick.
7 Remove the fabric from the machine and when you cut the threads, leave a tail about 2 inches or so of the thread. From the back side of the buttonhole, pull gently on the thread and a loop from the front thread will appear on the backside. Pull the front thread to the rear and tie off the threads and then cut them close to the knot you tied and the buttonhole will not come apart.

1995 400 series need to make a button hole


Consult your owner's manual. If the machine has a buttonhole function, you will find the instructions in the manual. If not, never fear as you can make buttonholes with any machine that has zig-zag capability. You can find a multitude of web sites and YouTube videos to learn how to make buttonholes on a machine without the buttonhole function. Just be sure to practice on scrap fabric and get the process working well before trying it on your garment.

Needle from getting stick in one place when using buttonhole function?


I suspect that you have your feed dogs lowered and/or you have the setting wrong for buttonhole, several of these machines you have to turn the dial or use the reverse arrow to make it change to all dies.

Buttonhole Husqvarna 6430. When it is supposed to sew the right side of the buttonhole it just goes back over the left side. The machine doesn't do the two buttonhole lines next to each other . An


the machine probably needs to be serviced to see why it's not making
a buttonhole and see if the gear or cam for the zig zag stitch is
worn or damaged.

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.

Souds like a stitch balance problem how long since the machine was serviced as the buttonhole mechanism can seize up if not used frequently.
