SOURCE: buttonhole lever
If you remove the cover on the upper left portion of the machine, while looking from the left to the right.....Above the BH lever area, you will see a round cam with a post through the middle. Rotate the round can ( with fingers on it), and try again. This will change the angle position on the lever, and hopefully correct your problem. You may have to go a couple of clicks in either direction.

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.

This is not the problem of the thickness, but of the softness. Fleece will pull unevenly, causing the dogs to simply tug at layers of it in place, instead of moving it. You will have to (GENTLY) assist the dogs in moving your fabric, if your fabric is this soft.
The cause of this is 90% on the fault of the fabric, and 10% on the way the buttonholer foot works. The foot is built to hold the fabric fast in place, with sliding action only permitted by the buttonhole guide. However, this is assuming the dogs can get enough purchase to move the fabric around. Simply put, again, you will have to help the dogs along with this one(you will be able to clearly feel the difference and which way the dogs "Should" be moving at the time when you attempt to, as once it catches in one direction, it is likely to keep going in that direction until the dogs stop.)

Go to the following site regarding timing your machine. Are you placing a button in the buttonhole foot so the machine "knows" how long to make the buttonhole? If you have a button stop lever to the left of your needle bar, are you pulling it down and putting it in FRONT of the button stop so it can complete the rotation?
