When I depress the foot pedal on my 2140 nothing happens, yet I can manually sew a few stitches and my light is on?


..... what do you mean by 'manually sew a few stitches'?
If you test your foot control on another machine or vice versa, you can verify if it is the control. Has it sewn a little erratically lately? Could be the contact tracer pins in the foot control.

it's very possible that when the needle broke the machine went out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

How do I turn corners with the overlock foot for a Janome 2049?


Sew to the end of the fabric, slowing right down to within a stitch or two of the end, manually turn wheel to complete last two stitches, stop, raise needle, raise presser foot, turn fabric so the back edge of the fabric is just under the needle, drop needle, drop presser foot and resume.

Bernina 240, won't complete the buttonhole


Double check the instructions and if there is still an issue, call the Bernina dealer and tell them what is wrong.

Ask if someone will be available to look at the machine when you come in .... you need one-on-one assistance.

Machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.


I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

Janome 5124 keeps running after I depress foot


Greetings, I experienced the same problem. Mine only ran a few stitches. Foot pressure on the foot feed was always "tension" problem in my foot.

I turned the foot feed around and upside down.
I press on the foot feed at the open end not the pivot (cord) end. This has given me much better control. Janome had no options for foot feed adjustment or replacement, but this has helped greatly. You may have to practice to get used to it
