Hi All,
I have a wonderfull Singer 9910 but every time i try to make a button hole the machine just beeps at me. It is straining our friendship. I would love to here from anybody who has fixed this problem.
Cheers
Chezz

Hi Chezz, can you give more information? I am not familiar with this machine so I might not be much help but someone else might chime in. Are you able to make a buttonhole at all?

Perhaps you need to completely lower the buttonhole lever. Just a guess; I don't have this machine either.

Hi Marie367, The machine does an automatic button hole but the instructions are not real clear.I have marked my button hole,put on the foot, pulled the buttonhole lever down and taken the threads to the left.
I have fluked a button hole once after lots of beeps from the machine.Frustrating. Don't know what i am doing wrong.

Hi Andye,
Thanks for your comment,
I also thought i may not be lowering the lever correctly but i can't make it go down any further but i won't let it beat me i will keep trying.

I don't know if this suggestions will help but be sure that your button is well in place inside the button holder. Usually the holder needs to be pinched in to set or hold the button tight.
Also after pulling the lever down as far as it will go the lever is usually held in place by a little bracket or thingy that sticks out on the foot.
After completing one buttonhole, some machines require you to not just go on and make another buttonhole but to first or once again touch the BH stitch selector before making another BH.
I hope you get it figured out.
