Make sure you pull down the buttonhole lever from the underside of the machine (near where the needle threader is) If you don't do this, the machine will make a few stitches and then stop. with error 6L.

thanks for using fixya.

Machine only sews one side of a buttonhole


your machine may have a button hole lever that has to be pulled
down before sewing, it should be on the left hand side of the needle
if that doesn't help then the machine may need to be checked

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

I am having trouble buttonholling on my Janome, it is new. It starts sewing and then stops and blinks 6L. What have I done wrong


Check your manual and follow the instructions. The error message may be listed in the trouble shooting at the back of the manual.

Probably will need to put on the buttonholing foot, pull down a lever which guides the machine to sew the length correctly and choose a buttonholing setting on the stitch selection.

Also, for good buttonholes, always interface the fabric to give it stability.

Code 6L when making a tiny buttonhole.


I have not solved the problem but.........neither am I going to pay up front to talk to one of your consultants. I will gladly pay if they can solve it but am not going to pay up front for them to tell me that I have to take my machine in to a repairman. Thanks but no thanks. Sharol

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.
