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.

Tension issues, sounds like the bobbin thread is not under tension at all. Take it out, and rethread the bobbin into the tension device. Sorry, don't know if your machine has a bobbin case (front loading) or is a top loading bobbin directly into a bobbin holder.
You might be able to get a threading diagram from www.sewusa.com or try www.sewing.about.com for general diagrams and tips.
Check what number your top tension dial is set to also.
Good idea to obtain another manual as you'll need to refer to it for maintenance of your machine as well as general use.

I just wanted to share my situation with you. I had the same problem. When I tried to use my Buttonhole fine-adjustment screw, it broke up and fell inside the machine. My husband opened the machine to get the broken parts out (two of them: first one - white-colored plastic broken part of the adjustment screw and a metal, half-moon shaped washer).
I called 1-877-276-8437 (BROTHER), and the person who checked the list of replacement parts said to me that this particular screw was not in the list. So that person gave me the number of the closest service center where I called.
The service person told me that it was no cost to see what was the problem, but to determine how much the solution would cost he needed to see the machine. I asked about the minimal cost of a service; it was $89+ the cost of the parts. It means the minimal cost of the repair (without the price of the replacement part) goes 14 dollars beyond the price of a new machine, which in Amazon.com today 10/2011 is $75 for the same model LS-2125(i).
My solution was to get out the broken part for which my husband unscrewed for me the front plastic shell and took out the two little broken parts. During this procedure, he realized I could use a narrow scissors to make the remaining part of the Buttonhole fine-adjustment screw turn around. This way I can still use my machine with no need of buying a new one.

Problem: A stitch other than the buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) while the buttonhole lever is lowered.
Solution: Raise the buttonhole lever
before continuing the operation.
Hope this helps!
