I recommend that the machine be serviced by a professional but if you're handy it may simply need cleaning around the reverse cam. To do this place the machine on it's back. You'll need to access the rod that drives the feed dogs and cam mechanism by removing all screws holding the bottom plate of the machine. Remove the bottom plate. Note that when you push the reverse button, while turning the wheel a thin rod moves left which allows a plastic cam mounted to the cam rod to also move left and engages the feed dogs in reverse. If the cam is not moving enough or if too slow, it may be that the rod and cam need cleaning and lubrication. Clean out all lint and lubricate the cam where it moves on the shaft. Try to get it to move more freely without forcing it. When done replace the bottom plate. I just repaired my wifes machine and this solved the problem. Hope it helps.

Use the "C" foot.
Set the "Stitch Width" dial to 0, then pull it out. You will now be able to rotate the knob and, if it is working properly, you will get the 4 parts of the buttonhole. Rotate to 1 and sew the left column, 2 for a bar tack, 3 for the right column coming down the other side and 4 should close it off.
The knob may be rotated back around to start another buttonhole by rotating forward. When it is pulled out, it will not stop turning at 4.
Always set the know to 0 to pull it out or push in.

I have a 180e, but cant put my hand on the manual tonight to clarify this issue for you.
From memory though, you need to go into the button hole button option, & look for stitch #60. The button sew application is automatic & its recommended that the #18 button foot be used.
As I said, that is from memory. Will check my manual asap & will clarify anything if needed, but I'm pretty sure thats the procedure, as I sewed buttons not that long ago. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I can''t remember the steps
you can download a manual for the Activa 145 here, buttonholing steps would probably be very similar for your model
It says you sew one bar, then press the reverse button and the automatic function then sews the bar tacs, other side, bar tack and finishes.
