    We have lost our operating manual for a Janome My Style 22 model so we can't remember how to use the buttonhole attachment. Can we download it from somewhere?

SOURCE: machine won't stitch a complete stitch

The "knotting up" can reveal a lot. If you have loose threads on one side or the other, the tension on the opposite side will be the culprit.
So if the threads are on the underside as you sew, it is the top tension. Top tension ought to be between 4 & 6 (this variation to allow for the different weights of fabric in your projects).

If tensions appear correct, and the thread is definately in the channel between the discs, try raising presser foot, remove thread and with a strip piece of fabric 8 - 10" (20 - 25cm) gently insert the fabric strip and clean between the discs with a see saw / to and fro action.

It may be there is lint trapped between the discs, this will keep them slightly apart and reduce the actual tension, sometimes dramatically.

If the loose threads are on the top, it is bobbin tension that is loose, it too may have lint in the spring and be giving a "false" tension.
I would not recommend fiddling with bobbin tension without being shown, it may end up with missing small screws and spring pieces.

Hope this is of some help,

SOURCE: Button hole problem

What ever you do DON'T FORCE IT. I see these problems when a buttonhole mechanism hasn't been used for a long time or the machine has been dropped. There is a cam follower (like a finger) that changes positions when you turn the knob. This could be out of place and a tech will have to go in and fix it.
OR old oil has hardend from non-use or grime has acumulated in the mechanism and jamming it up. I sometimes have luck cleaning it with Tri-Flow oil (hardware stores) but again this may be a tech job also.

SOURCE: Sewing manual for a Reliable or Sailrite

The problem is that you purchased a clone of the Sailrite Ultrafeed. Most people do not know how much work Sailrite puts into each Ultrafeed Sewing Machine before it is shipped to customers. They hold 17 patents on the Zigzag Ultrafeed and know this machine inside and out. So when each machine goes through the assembly line in Indiana they are then tested by Sailrite in 2 layers of canvas then 8 layers of canvas then 4 layers of vinyl fabric if it does not sew it flawlessly they fix it, Ultrafeeds work right out of the box! So, it is highly unlikely that you will be able to get the clone machine to work. It must be totally rebuilt (a 4 hours process for an experienced technician). Sailrite will not work on any clone machines. So get your money back and buy a Sailrite Ultrafeed! If you are desperate and can not return the machine you can buy a DVD that Sailrite made for the Ultrafeed (each Ultrafeed purchased gets it free) it can be purchase here: http://www.sailrite.com/Ultrafeed-Advanced-Maintenance-DVD . It will help with timing issues, but will not show you how and what to do to rebuild the machine.
