Question about Sewing Machines
The machine makes a buttonhole, but never the size of the button. Sometimes there is a complete buttonhole, but too small. Sometimes one side is long enough, but the other is too short

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.

Your machine should have a special buttonhole foot which has a place to insert a button, You will probably have to pull on opposite ends of the foot to open it. Place the button in the foot and then squeeze it together to make the button secure. Attach the foot to the machine. It should snap on.
looking at the left side of the machine you will see your needle bar at the front and the presser foot bar at the back. You should also see another lever which needs to be pulled down so that it rests in the buttonhole foot.Select buttonhole on your machine and it should sew. The button determines how long the buttonhole is.

Hi - we both worked for Pfaff for years and would love to help. Can you provide specific on the problems you are experiencing, i.e. is the fabric bunching, the beginning and end not lining up, more dense on one side than the other... just as much detail as you can. We'll do our best to help you figure out how to get your perfect buttonholes. Kim & Linnette

Put on the C foot. Select the buttonhole stitch. The machine will start sewing in the bottom left corner of the the buttonhole. Sew the length that you need, press and release the reverse button and sew the right side of the buttonhole. When you get back to the bottom, press and release the reverse button again and the buttonhole will be finished and the thread will tie off and the machine will stop. If the buttonhole is what you want, press and release the Stop button and the machine will repeat this buttonhole as many times as you need until the machine is turned off or the Stop is pressed again. When repeating, you need not press the reverse. Just press down on the foot control and continue until the machine stops by itself.
If you don't like the first one, just sew another one using the reverse button to set the ends.

it sounds like the buttonhole mechanism is seized up or gummed up with old grease. try following the linkages for buttonhole mechanism or button to see you can locate the stuck linkage.
otherwise it sounds like a tech job.
