Question about Janome Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Janome sewing machine has a buttonhole attachment. I made one buttonhole-no problem. Now it starts the buttonhole, then it stops and the LED displays bL. I have restarted it and changed to a different style. Same thing. What am I doing wrong? Or is the problem with the machine. HELP.

Machine only sews one side of a buttonhole


your machine may have a button hole lever that has to be pulled
down before sewing, it should be on the left hand side of the needle
if that doesn't help then the machine may need to be checked

does it sew buttonholes both ways?

My Janome 6500 always buttonholes away from me, so when it starts, it sews the near bartack, then stitches backwards down the right hand side of the buttonhole. It then comes back with little straight stiches on other side and sews the zigzag backwards on the left side, then the far bar tack. I would have thought your Janome would do the same stitch sequence.

I am having trouble buttonholling on my Janome, it is new. It starts sewing and then stops and blinks 6L. What have I done wrong


Check your manual and follow the instructions. The error message may be listed in the trouble shooting at the back of the manual.

Probably will need to put on the buttonholing foot, pull down a lever which guides the machine to sew the length correctly and choose a buttonholing setting on the stitch selection.

Also, for good buttonholes, always interface the fabric to give it stability.

I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.


I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.
