Question about Sewing Machines

I have a Black & Decker Digital Advantage steam iron. The display window reads "error" and there is a beeping tone and of course no heat. How do I reset this or is it a sign of a bigger problem?

Thanks for using FixYa. If you are seeing the word Error on the digital display you will need to reset the digital display to clear this error. In order to reset that display, hold down the PROG/SYNC button and the CLR button on the display at the same time until the display beeps. This should reset the unit and clear the error code. If this doesn't resolves your issue then there is loose connector cable or the thermal fuse on the circuit board has blown and you'll need to change the fuse.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I turned it on and the display reads 5P and just beeps when I try to do anything. My manual doesn't list this code.

Unable to assist without knowing the make & model of the machine. Error Code 5P varies depending on different make & model.

Steam presses are fairly simple machines. You have a boiler and steam ports. First if you've been using tap water, you probably have a build up of minerals and eventually killed the heating element.

Get a new one.

Machine beeps and stops sewing, no error message displayed

sounds like not through the tension plate (on top) right... rethread and make sure you hold the thread taunt toward you as you putt through top tension... you should hear a slight click and some resistance...

Recieving a L6 code when trying to sew a button hole

You need to pull down the buttonhole guide which is the BLACK tab toward the back. I had this problem too, because I was pulling down the white tab in the front.
