Look in your manual, it shows very clearly on page 49 how to do it, it is easier to look at the diagram than to explain it. You can download a copy of your manual for free at www.brother-usa.com and then you can enlarge the diagram so that you can see it better.

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.

Make sure you lower the presser foot before continuing the operation.

The foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button

was pressed if the foot controller is not connected)

and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button
was pressed while the presser foot was raised.

Cannot reset buttonhole size


Assuming its a singer domestic machine
1.For a 1 step buttonhole, you will need to place and lock the actual button at the buttonhole foot holder(back end of the foot), the size will remain the same each time you sew a button hole.
2.For a 4 step buttonhole, the size is determine by sliding the foot against the line/marker which you can see on the foot itself each time you start to sew the button hole.

Kenmore 16231 how to change foot


Looks like it's a snap on foot system. First check to see if there is a button or a release on the back of the foot holder. If so press the button and it will release the foot. If not you get to grasp the toe of the foot when it's in the "up position" and press down. The foot should then snap off the holder.

To put a different foot on, align the little bar on the foot with the carrier's grasper... and lower the presser foot bar so it fits in. Some are more stubborn and require a little pressure to get it to snap on.

Good luck. .

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

Something happened to my janome 6600 I drop the A foot to changes it to the zipper foot but now it does not grab any foot


Could you be a little more specific about not grabbing any foot? Do you mean if you use a button hole foot, sequin foot, open toe foot that none of them work?

Have old, (but good) 6217 c model. Cannot attach button hole foot, seems too long for the shank that you attach feet to. Only one hole in the shank and the shank on the button hole foot is too long for...


You are trying to attach a long shank foot to a short shank machine. Look for a short shank foot on either Ebay. You may also find it included within a "tin" of accessories at a local thrift shop. If neither of these options work for you check with your local fabric store or sewing machine repair shop for the correct button foot.

How to sew buttonholes


First thing you'll need to do is switch the presser foot.

Your machine should have come with a specific button hole foot.

(might have an R on the bottom)


To snap off:

Raise the needle and presser foot.

Press the red button on the back of the foot holder
and the foot will drop.

To snap on:

Place the presser foot so the pin on the foot lies just

under the groove of the foot holder.
Lower the foot holder to lock the foot in place.

Select which buttonhole style you would like to stitch.
This can be done by selecting a mode (buttonholes are 06-08)
and then adjusting to the desired length and width.

After you do this, lower the presser foot and hold the foot pedal down.
The machine will automatically sew the buttonhole and stop when it is finished

All you'll need to do is just cut the thread after.

Hope you found this information helpful.

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
