Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
Generally, on the more advanced machines there's something called "balancing a buttonhole" or "balancing a pattern". A knob, that when adjusted, keeps the right and left sides of a buttonhole or sewing pattern aligned. Since I don't know what you've got, let me send you to look at that feature on a Juki F-600, as that's one of my machines that has a pretty common method of balancing: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/media/products/juki/hzl-F300/f-series-instruction-manual.pdf bottom of p. 71 (72 of the pdf)

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.

There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.

Hi, I'm a Bernina tech and can tell you you need to have a technician recalibrate your buttonhole foot to the machine. There is a function in the service program to do this. Also the machine will need a speed calibration once the buttonhole foot is calibrated. This will definatly solve the problem.
