Question about Sewing Machines
How do I use the button hole feature? The display just says "step 1". I'm not sure how to get it to move to step 2 or 3 or 4. Is there a way that I can get it to automatically make the whole button hole, without "steps" Yes, I'm using the button hole presser foot and have the button in the holder. My Singer model # 7462 has a pull down lever but it won't allow the needle to go back when sewing a button hole. I followd instructions and I may not have the tension set correctly. It only sew a very tiny line of thread and either needs repair or I'm doing something wrong. Manual is of little help.

generally most sewing problems are due to sticking parts because of non usage as =you have stated or because the tension has been not set right. what I suggest is that you take the time to do some cleaning of the machine like what bis pointed out in your manual use a light weight mineral oil to wipe the moving parts with, but not too much. also adjust the tension of the foot so there is pressure on the material as to move it while sewing. after all the cleaning and adjusting rethread the bobbin and make sure it is seated properly also rethread the need and make sure the thread moves freely from the spool. this should do the trick. please rate this

Yes frustrating issue this one. I discovered that you need to pull down the retractable button hole guide found behind the needle threader (not visible when you are sitting at the machine).
Hope this helps, happy sewing!!!

I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.

different fabrics and layers has diferent set up on threading. try cotton fabrics w/ thread tension of #3 to #4 and stich # 8 to #12.if you change fabric and layers gradual setting on dial tension should be done until you acquired the good set up.have a nice day.regards
