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.

How do make buttonholes with the Necchi 3102? I followed the instructions from the manual but cannot get the machine to properly make the buttonhole. Any suggestions? Persimmon


Expand exactly the symptoms of what is not working with your buttonhole function. There are generally 5 or 6 steps to a built-in buttonhole, so we need to know which function(s) is/are not working.

How to Make Buttonhole on Your Sewing Machine Sew4Home

BTW, any zig-zag sewing machine can be used to make buttonholes without the built-in buttonholer or a buttonhole foot. The built-in buttonholer just took the manual method and made a dial to switch to the next step. You can do that manually on your machine. You just need to perform each step manually: knot-on, stitch the bartack, zig-zag forward, bartack, zig-zag backward, and tie-off. I've made many buttonholes manually on sewing machines before having a machine with built-in buttonhole or a buttonhole foot. Just be sure to practice on some scrap fabric first before trying it on your garment.

My automatic buttonhole stitch is not working on my elna sewing machine ,even when the lever is pulled down


you should a buttonhole button that must be pushed on the machine
either before you pull the buttonhole lever down or after to let the
sewing machine know what function to use, my sewing machine
won't let me make a buttonhole unless I push the buttonhole button
or yes, like you said the buttonhole foot could be damaged.

Don't know how to do button holes


Slide the back of the buttonhole foot "R" open, place your button in the cradle and slide the fott together so it holds the button.
Snap on the buttonhole foot on the machine. Pull down the buttonhole lever. It has a small white plastic paddle on the end and is located up and to the left of the needle bar. Pull the lever all the way down. Turn the pattern selector to Buttonhole. Place the tension on 3. Place the stitch width control on 5 or 6. Place the stitch length control a little below 1. Make sure that you have some stabilizer between the layers of fabric. Use freezer paper in a pinch. Lower the foot on your fabric making sure that the foot is not pulled forward or backward. Make a test buttonhole. AFTER EACH BUTTONHOLE YOU MUST TURN THE PATTERN SELECTOR OFF BUTTONHOLE AND BACK ON IN ORDER TO RESET THE MECHANISM. Make several test buttonholes, adjusting the width and length if needed.

Can't figure out automatic buttonhole use on MC4000


2 things must do:
You have to use the buttonhole foot.
You have to pull down the lever to the lowest position (just left of needle bar/ presser bar up in machine.)
Set to buttonhole. After each buttonhole, be sure to change off the buttonhole then reset to buttonhole to reset the buttonhole to the beginning

Bernina Buttonhole foot #3A


Hi, you must have an 1130S which means it could also be a circuitboard issue. If the LED/LCD light for the buttonholer does not flash you either need a new RET-Print (circuitboard) or a new buttonhole foot. Sorry to say that you DO more than likely need a new buttonhole foot according to my manual on this machine. No way to repair the foot that I know of.
You should bring the machine in and try it first.
Guess not all news is good news. Sorry.
