Question about Janome Memory Craft 10000
I've had problems getting my button hole maker (Janome10000) to work. Even though it may make two or three button holes it at some point will instruct me to put the BH lever down...when it is already down. I've tried pushing back up and back down, starting all over, and it sews two or three stitches and stops and tells me to pull down the BH lever. (Even though it is down)

SOURCE: The Reverse stitch button
The feed mechanism needs to be oiled. Take off the bottom cover and look for any place where two parts move against each other. Some binds can be very difficult to remove. Try spraying everything with a light weight oil (I like Tri-Flow) and let them soak over night. Then manually try to move the feed dogs with your hand. Hopefully it will break loose.

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.

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.
