SOURCE: making a buttonhole on a Necchi 3204 sewing machine

Here's what the manual says:

Before sewing, fit the button-hold foot to the machine (long white plastic thing with red, ruler like markings).

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the left hand side. Set the dial to "1" position. Sew the left side and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "2" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the right hand side. Set the dial to "3" position. Sew the right side. Raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "4" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Hope that helps...

SOURCE: 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.

I need to know what the settings need to be on the Kenmore 158 machine to use the buttonholer?


You'll have to provide more information about the sewing machine. 158 indicates the manufacturer. However, there are a lot of Kenmore sewing machines from that manufacturer. The 158.1340 manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/150291/Kenmore-1340.html .

Page 40 (41 in the linked format) begins the section on buttonholes. With the buttonhole attachment, you need to set the stitch to the second narrowest zig-zag stitch. You can use any stitch length. The description of using the buttonhole attachment starts on page 45.

Without the buttonhole attachment, you set the stitch selector to each part of the buttonhole as you reach them. The stitch length dial has to be set to an appropriate length in the block for buttonholes. The top and bottom tack bars use the same stitch selector. There are separate ones for the left and right sides of the button hole.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the rest of the model number on your sewing machine for specifics with your machine.

My 4423 will not advance when I have all the settings set to sew a simple buttonhole. Why?


do you have a manual?
do you have the buttonhole lever pulled down?
if these suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

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 do not understand how to use make the the buttonhole i cant get the 2&4


According to the description for the 15218 sewing machine, it has a one-step buttonhole function. You should be able to put on the automatic buttonhole foot, insert the button behind the presser foot, and set the pattern selector dial to "BH"- see p. 66 of the manual at http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0909499.pdf
Good luck!
