Re: how do i use the automatic buttonhole on kenmore...
Your machine should have a special buttonhole foot which has a place to insert a button, You will probably have to pull on opposite ends of the foot to open it. Place the button in the foot and then squeeze it together to make the button secure. Attach the foot to the machine. It should snap on. looking at the left side of the machine you will see your needle bar at the front and the presser foot bar at the back. You should also see another lever which needs to be pulled down so that it rests in the buttonhole foot.Select buttonhole on your machine and it should sew. The button determines how long the buttonhole is. Sewman7

A stitch other than the buttonhole or bar tack stitch was selected and the foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) while the buttonhole lever is lowered.
Raise the buttonhole lever before continuing the operation.
Each time a key pressed or an incorrect operation is performed, a beep is sounded.
For a correct operationOne beep is sounded.
If an incorrect operation is performedTwo or four beeps are sounded.
If the machine locks up, for example, because the thread is tangledThe sewing machine continues to beep for four seconds. The machine automatically stops. Be sure to check for the cause of the error, and correct it before continuing
I get the same beeping when I forget to pull down the buttonhole lever
if you have the automatic buttonhole & the buttonhole foot that you have to put a button in,,check & see if there is a buttonhole lever that has to be pulled down, it will be a lever to the left of the needle bar

if you have a automatic buttonhole , then you should have a buttonhole lever that you have to pull down, before you start to do the buttonhole,, my machine will not let me do a buttonhole unless I pull down the buttonhole lever
These are the exact instructions from the Manual.
1. Select one of buttonhole patterns. 2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Install presser foot with little red mark towards the front) 3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (the part located in the back crescent shaped) 4. Lower the buttonhole lever (to the left of the needle) so that it drops down vertically between the stoppers A and B. 5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your garment. 6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4 inches to the rear. 7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the buttonhole foot. 8. While holding the top thread, start the machine. *Sewing will be completed automatically. 9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole opener to open up the frabric in the center of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut anyt of the seam thread. I hope this helps.
