ELNA 540 Experience how do i use the foot marked with an R? What is the settings for a rollstitch?


The foot labeled R is the buttonhole foot. Raise the machine needle and put the foot on the machine. Pull the button holder to the back of the machine and place the button for the garment in holder. Push the button holder to close it against the button. For thick buttons, you may want a slightly larger space for the button. Just pull back the holder a fraction. Push the button hole lever down as far as it will go. (The lever is on the side of the foot near the button holder.) Place a corner of the fabric under the foot and press the up/down needle button twice. Pull the thread to the back of the fabric. Then position the fabric at the starting point where the button hole is to be sewn. Make sure that there is no gap between the slider and the stopper on the foot. Select the button hole style (06 regular, 07 oval, 08 keyhole). Then set the machine to sew. This is shown in the manual on pages 53-63 (pages 59-70 in the PDF).

For a rolled hem on a lightweight fabric, use stitch 10 and set the stitch width to 3.5 and the stitch length to 0.8. Use the Satin Stitch pressure foot (labeled F). Lay the edge of the fabric in the center of the foot. (Make sure that there is a clean cut to the edge with no dangling threads.) See page 48 of the manual (page 54 of the PDF).

Elna has the manual for the Experience 540 here on their manuals page: http://www.elnausa.com/en-us/pages.php?page=107 . The Experience 540 is listed on the left in the section labeled Top-loading 7 mm Max Stitch Width Machines. The direct link to the manual is http://www.elnausa.com/data/files/2_users/55/Inst-book-EL540%28EFG%29.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Is there any way to get a brother auto button hole to work on a thick winter jacket


Thick fabric presents some special problems for buttonholes. It may help to place tissue paper (like giftwrap tissue) under and above the fabric to help the fabric slide better. If not using a special buttonhole foot, a teflon foot or roller foot may also help.



Also, consult your owner's manual. If your machine has a presser foot pressure adjustment, it may help to loosen that so the presser foot does not press so hard on the fabric.

My straight stitch is not perfectly straight, what can I do?


1. Put a piece of paper on the sewing machine w/o thread. Sew for three inches.
2. Notice the needle holes are straight with the feed dogs. The pressure foot is not in line with the holes.
3. With the pressure foot down loosen the pressure foot pressure to it's lowest amount.
4. There is a screw on the arm that needs to be loosened. Afterwards, adjust the arm until the foot is parallel with the feed dogs. Tighten screw.
5. Try sewing again on the piece of paper to check for accuracy on being straight.
6. One other check is to insure the feed dogs have even wear.

Just purchased a Singer 4423 machine, need more detailed instructions for buttonholes


when you press the button hole option & then pull the button hole lever
down it will rest against the button hole foot, having the button in the
button hole foot help the machine gage the size the button hole needs
to be, if the machine keeps on sewing & doesn't stop automaticily then
there is something wrong with the button hole option.

How do you use the sliding button hole attatchment


attach the sliding foot by clipping off the current one, placing the sliding food onto the needle plate, lining up the clip with the attchment point and lowering the pressure foot down onto it so it clicks in.

Now, does your machine have a little lever device to the left and just behind the pressure foot, have a look for it. If yes, then pull it down, this is the buttonholing trigger and it connects with the sliding foot to trigger the reverse and stitching of the second side.

Program the machine for button holing, this might be pushing in a numbered code, on my 6500 there are five buttonholes and they each have a code that I enter.

Place your fabric test sample under the pressure foot and put the button into the back of the pressure foot, there is a little ratchet device that closes up holding the button firmly to get the right dimensions.

I always do at least 2 test buttonholes using same fabric, usually 2 layers with interfacing between.

Start the buttonholing sequence by pressing on your machines foot control, it should sew backwards away from you down the first side of the buttonhole, and the trigger should connect with a bit on the slide foot triggering the machine to stop, sew the bar tack, and then reverse and sew the otherside and final bar tack.

That's how it goes on my 6500, I hope this applies to your MC10000 too, it should be very similar. Your machine probably has at least 3 or 4 different types of buttonholes it can do. If you don't have a manual for it, it probably is worth sources one as these machines have lots of features to use.

Attaching fit button-hole foot?


Just pull down on the original metal foot. It will snap off and then you can snap on the button hole foot. Good luck!

The button hole option isn't working.


You can use the regular plate and you are correct in that it should make the button hole automatically. If the material does not move, the pessure on the pressure foot is not enough.

You can try the following:
First make sure you select a button hole patern.
You can also place a piece of stitch and tear paper underneath the material to help with the movement. If you dont have any, try normal tissue paper.

Hope this help you

Buttonhole problem


Hi,
When doing the button hole....after installing the button hole foot and lowering the foot....and adding the button so the automatic button hole size is determined...you lower the button hole lever it will touch the back of the button hole foot. this holds the button hole foot in the proper position...if this lever is not all the way down...the machine blips at you...check to see that it is down all the way...I hope this helps you..It truly does all that it advertises and is a great machine...BBill01
P.S. you can adjust width and length of the stich also...see instruction manual. pg 28-30
