I've answered this question for this model a couple times. Ensure that the buttonhole lever is all the way down. Also, ensure that it is point STRAIGHT down, and is not pushed by the buttonhole foot in any way.

SOURCE: singer 7436 buttonhole problem

Hello,

I have found that the problem lies with the button hole pull down. Either it is too far down, or too far up. The problem that I have with it now is that it will never sew the button holes consistantly. I will set it where the button hole needs to be, and it will then proceed to place it where it wants to. Any help on this problem?

SOURCE: 3rd step of buttonhole doesn't work

Souds like a stitch balance problem how long since the machine was serviced as the buttonhole mechanism can seize up if not used frequently.

Look for the buttonhole lever, just in front of the presserlever, on the lefthand side of the machine. Pull it down and push it back to the top. Good Luck

SOURCE: 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.

Hi can’t make the button hole big enough using the special one step Pfaff foot . Won’t go bigger than 8mm


It could be that 8mm is the limit for the buttonhole foot. You can try making buttonholes manually with the sewing machine. Not really difficult. Just need to be careful marking the buttonhole and stitching. Recommend practicing on scrap fabric before trying it on the project.

Is it necessary to use the buttonhole attachment or should I be able to use the stitch selection buttonhole function? I have a Singer Advance 7422 model & our Singer store closed no help here.


You don't have to use the buttonhole attachment. Many older machines never had the buttonhole attachment but still made buttonholes. There are manual ways to sew buttonholes on a sewing machine with only a straight stitch and zig-zag stitch.

I get an E2 error on my Brother CP7500 and the button lever is all the way up


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 operation
    One beep is sounded.
  • If an incorrect operation is performed
    Two or four beeps are sounded.
  • If the machine locks up, for example, because the thread is tangled
    The 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 to sew.

I get a E4 code whan I turn on machine and I can't figure out what is wrong.


Brother Computer Codes E1: Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.

E2: You chose a stitch other than a buttonhole stitch or a bar tack stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered position. Raise the buttonhole lever.

E3: If you selected the buttonhole or tack bar stitch and start to sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower the buttonhole lever.

E4: You hit the reverse button while the bobbin winder shaft was moved over to the right. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left.


E5: On automatic sewing machines, the start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was plugged in. Unplug the foot controller if you are using the automatic function.


E6: This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

I'm trying to sew my first buttonhole. It sews briefly then 6L comes on the computer and it won't complete the buttonhole What am I doing wrong?


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.

Singer 9910 will NOT stitch buttonholes no matter what is tried, it just keeps beeping.


I have a computerized machine also, when I start to do a buttonhole my machine it beeps & gives me a error message BL. which means I forgot to pull the buttonhole lever down again

My singer 7444 makes beeping sounds when operated, the machine fails to start.


Ensure that your stitch width and your spacing are set to a green-light setting. Also, ensure that your stitch wheel will operate(It will lock in the case of a jam.), and check to see that the stitch you have selected is compatible with the kit load you have onboard, i.e. for buttonholing, ensure you have the automatic buttonhole foot attached and the buttonhole lever down. In all other stitches, ensure the buttonhole lever is in the full up position. 

The 7444 Precision is a "Smart" machine, and will not allow you to attempt a stitch that simply will not work with the wrong stitch spacing and width settings applied. Move the sliders slowly until each one lights up green, or at least does not light up yellow/orange at all.
