I have have a brother xl-2600i and am having a couple problems sewing a buttonhole with the automatic buttonhole foot:
1. When the machine stitches the first side of the buttonhole (after the first tack), it’s stitching a very wide zigzag
2. When the lever that sticks out on the side on the buttonhole foot (its attached to the button hole size adjuster) reaches the buttonhole lever on the machine, it pushes the lever forward and the fabric is no longer fed through so does not complete the 2nd side of the button hole. So I’m able to get the beginning and ending tacks and 1st side (although incomplete).
I was previously able to make a complete buttonhole (even with problem #1) but for some reason now it won’t complete the hole.I’ve cleaned the machine, re threaded it, changed the needle, etc… I can’t figure out what’s wrong or different.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
