SOURCE: One step button Hole V for Singer Sewing Machine

Hi, I had the same problem, but I finally found my manual. The solution is that you have to use the presser foot for buttonholes but the most important part is that you have to lower the buttonholer lever. It is located right next to the needle to the left. It is a metal lever with a little square white plastic end. You need to pull that down in order the the buttonhole feature to work. My button was too big for the buttonhole presser foot, so I had to use the regular presser foot, but hit the buttonhole lever with my had to make it go up or down.

Just pull down on the original metal foot. It will snap off and then you can snap on the button hole foot. Good luck!

SOURCE: machine beeps and won't sew when buttonhole

I just figured out how to use the buttonhole feature today. Make sure where you insert the button is towards the back of the machine. Pull down the button hole lever and make sure it's between to two plastic notches. The buttonhole lever will actually be pressed against notch B as described in the instructions. Insert your material and let the bottonhole foot down. You will to play with the stitch width and length to get the right size opening. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.

I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

Singer Simple 3116 only sews backward.Looking for answer I saw earlier that involved several steps including buttonholer


You are stuck in buttonhole. The selector knob does not spin round and around. It is moved from Stitch 1 to stitch 14 and back. Try selecting buttonhole and then running the knob in the other direction to straight stitch. If that does not work, (1) drop the lever that senses the button hole attachment, (2) sew a few stitches backward, (3) push the button hole lever rearward, once, hard, (4) rotate the stitch selector to straight stitch.

Just purchased a Singer 4423 machine, need more detailed instructions for buttonholes


when you press the button hole option & then pull the button hole lever
down it will rest against the button hole foot, having the button in the
button hole foot help the machine gage the size the button hole needs
to be, if the machine keeps on sewing & doesn't stop automaticily then
there is something wrong with the button hole option.

My 4423 will not advance when I have all the settings set to sew a simple buttonhole. Why?


do you have a manual?
do you have the buttonhole lever pulled down?
if these suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Trying button hole attachment- installed properly I think - when I push on presser foot an alarm goes off and it will not sew


Hi Dot,

1. Make sure you pull the buttonhole lever down- left back of your machine.
2. Select the button hole icon, or select the corresponding number for a button hole-very important.

Good Luck

Make sure the plug from the buttonhole foot is going all the way in when you insert it. If that doesnt correct it, then the foot may be bad.

I get a beeping sound when I try to make button holes


Ensure that your buttonhole foot is attached, and that your buttonhole guide is slid all the way down(It is a small, flat-tabbed bar just behind your needle threader.) 

Ensure that once the bar is down, that it is able to sit between the two buttonhole foot guide tabs, and is not pushed by either of the tabs in either direction yet.(The pushing of the buttonhole guide bar is what causes the machine to stop, sew sideways, and start going the other way)
