Question about Brother XL-5340 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Not familiar with the XL-5340 but I have an XL-6562 - mine has done the same thing. There is a small black screw that requires an allen wrench to adjust. It is on the right hand side of the needle holder. Apparently it just works loose over time and with use. My son put the holder back on, adjusted that screw with an allen wrench and it has been fine. Not sure what to tell you though about the missing thread guide. Maybe it will be ok without that - I guess try it and see.

Thank you... that did help, but it won't sew as it should without the last thread guide. :(

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.
