Question about Sewing Machines
I've used my automatic buttonhole feature before, but now it won't work. I've checked my manual and I appear to be doing everything right, but all that happens when I go to start a buttonhole is the initial beginning ziz-zag. It just continues to do this and won't move onto the next step.
If everything appears to be working correctly for the first side and stops and bunches up when it should reverse - Make sure you have pulled down the stopper arm (this is not clear in the manual) when the button hole foot contacts the stopper arm gently push the foot against the stopper arm and the direction will reverse and finish the button hole. **Stopper arm pulls down from above - Check the pictures in you manual carefully.**

I couldn't work out why mine stopped working.... .and it was because I had forgotten that I had switched the feed dogs off ('round the back) when I sewed on a button. Once the feed dogs were back in action, it worked a charm.

If you know that your reverse mechanism is functioning normally for ordinary sewing, and not at fault....
Make absolutely certain the position of the sample button in the holder is correct, and the button hole foot assembly is attached with the stopper in the correct position, as the stopper arm must engage to "tell" the mechanism to stop and change direction.
If you cannot see from the manual quite how this is achieved and you want more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au
