Question about Kenmore 11206 / 11306 / 11506 / 11606
SOURCE: machine made buttonholes.
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

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done
There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.
feel free for further queries

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.

You will notice that there is a dial to make button holes. Yes, use the template and turn the nob to form the four sides of the button hole. Try it on a scrape of fabric until you figure it out. That is what I do. Good luck!

First be sure to follow the steps described in the manual for attaching the buttonholer.
Second, check that the buttonhole lever is pushed because it returns to it's unpushed state after a buttonhole is completed and therefore it will stitch in the same spot.
Also, try adjusting the stitch length. I've found that I can't make buttonholes while on the satin stich setting ( that little rectangle) but if I move it just a bit towards 1 it will manage to make the right stitches.

On the right side of the machine there is a large knob at the top. Pull that out and you can wind your bobbin. Don't forget to push it back in so you can sew :)
